Ingersoll Rand Expands Mini Impactool™ Line-Up

ANNANDALE, N.J. – Ingersoll Rand, a global leader in vehicle service tools and equipment, has expanded their mini air tool line with the 2101XP-QC ¼” Quick Change Mini Impactool and the 2102XP 3/8” Mini Impactool.

The 2101XP-QC and 2102XP each weigh less than 1.5 pounds and their powerful impact mechanism is engineered to deliver 45 ft-lb of torque where you need it most. Both tools are engineered for lightweight power and balance, and feature a pistol grip design with an easily accessible forward/reverse switch that allows one-handed operation. Each mini Impactool operates with a five-vane motor that delivers smooth and robust performance. These new mini Impactools are ideal for those hard-to-reach places where conventional tools cannot go, and the 2101XP-QC has a quick change feature that allows for a convenient and trouble-free attachment exchange.

“Ingersoll Rand is excited to introduce the 2101XP-QC and 2102XP to the Mini Impactool line-up,” said Nate Schmid, Marketing Manager for Vehicle Services with Ingersoll Rand. “Technicians will really enjoy the light, durable feel of the tools and will be surprised by how effective and powerful such a lightweight tool can be.”

These new mini Impactools complement Ingersoll Rand’s comprehensive line-up of mini tools that includes a mini random orbital sander, mini polisher, mini surface prep sander and a mini drill/driver. All of these mini tools feature an ergonomically designed composite housing and textured grip designed to fit comfortably in the palm of your hand.

“Providing technicians with premium, ergonomically designed tools that save time and money is a top priority when Ingersoll Rand develops products,” Schmid said. “With the 2101XP-QC and 2102XP mini Impactools, mechanics will be able to quickly get into tight spots that conventional air tools would not allow. We are very proud of these innovations in lightweight technology.”
