New addition to our range: Brushless FLEX ID ¼" 18.0-EC cordless impact wrench

Steinheim, May 2018 – FLEX-Elektrowerkzeuge GmbH is expanding its existing range of cordless tools even further: the new, brushless 18.0 volt ID ¼" 18.0-EC impact wrench will be available from May. The latest addition has a function for the simple adjustment of torque and speed for a variety of applications. 225 newton metres of torque produce secure bolted connections. The integrated EC technology increases efficiency and promotes a long service life without the need to change the brushes.


The FLEX ID ¼” 18.0-EC has a robust diecast aluminium gearbox  housing with protective cap. The brushless motor sets itself apart with its high level of efficiency. A variety of speeds and newton metre torque steps can be set. Some users are already familiar with this function of the new cordless impact wrench from the FLEX IW 1/2" 18.0-EC. It is now also available with ¼” drive connector for socket sets. Users can thus adjust the tool as required to suit their particular application. To make things easy for the user, the new FLEX cordless impact wrench indicates the charge state by means of an LED charge status display. An integrated LED light gives the operator a good view of the work area even when lighting conditions are poor.


Practical and accurate

Like all new product developments from FLEX, the design of the ID ¼" 18.0-EC benefits from the close contact the company maintains with those who actually use its tools. The extremely short head of the impact wrench means that even tight spots are easy to reach and the screwing process is easy to control. The ergonomically shaped rubber anti-slip handle makes the tool safe to operate without causing fatigue. In addition, the Impact Control function plays its part in the perfect sinking of screws. The tool has an electronic quick-acting brake and clockwise/anti-clockwise rotation with safety catch for maximum safety. The Speed Command function provides settings for three different speed ranges.


The FLEX ID ¼" 18.0-EC will be available from dealers from May 2018 at the recommended retail price of €225.00 excl. VAT and can be operated with all 18.0 V battery systems. The standard supply in the L-Boxx® carrying case with case insert includes belt clip and bit storage but not batteries.
