Milwaukee, DeWALT, and Ingersoll-Rand have enjoyed a good reputation for quality and power and this has carried over to their cordless impact wrenches. While Milwaukee’s other cordless tools and impacts also offer their own unique benefits and points to think about, the 2763-22 M18 is largely hailed as quite the tool to have among its users.
Upon doing research into this particular model, what we found is that users rave consistently about the sheer torque—or power—it has. At 18v and a reported maximum torque of 700 and 100 lbs respectively, it’s no surprise how this impact is able to create such a fan base.
Your appreciation for it will only increase after you see it in action.
Spinning off lug nuts to change or rotate tires, loosening and removing crank case bolts, or even heavily-rusted, classic car nuts and bolts—the 2763-22 M18 seems to be consistently capable of doing it all. As with all drills of this type, prolonged use can become a bit fatiguing to the user but, when compared with some similar, beefy models, its weight is actually not too shabby.
THINGS TO BE AWARE OF
The first point is price, at least for many of us considering which cordless impact to buy, or perhaps those who are considering making the switch over from an air impact or electric impact. It is definitely not the cheapest on the block but for the price it delivers some seriously nice, big bang for the buck.
Though the weight is actually less than some, it is still something to consider, depending on your application and intended style of use. If you are looking to use this Milwaukee impact for long periods of time, then it can definitely begin to wear out your arm. However, if you are a common day-to-day, at-home do-it-yourselfer, then this impact could feel quite amazing in your hand—even if you just wanted to use it to change or rotate tires occasionally.
However, if you regularly do work that requires this stout impact wrench, then it is also possible for you to get used to its weight—especially since it gets things done fast. There are, after all, a few heavier drills out there.
THE BOTTOM LINE
The main point to remember here is that while this is not what we would consider a professional’s everyday cordless impact wrench, it is definitely close (very close). Therefore, anyone who is looking to upgrade from their “good” cordless impact will find themselves more than pleasantly surprised with the Milwaukee 2763-22 M18. Furthermore, if you will ever have a tool that has the power to keep you from having to take a trip to the local mechanic, then this cordless impact wrench would be the one.
Cost and weight, in the end, are small issues compared to what this drill is capable of and the quality it has. In the end, we simply cannot complain about this powerful impact tool.
Final Rating for the Milwaukee 2763-22 M18 Brushless, Cordless Impact Wrench: 4.75 out of 5 stars.
