The IQV20 W5132 has 550 foot-pounds of nut-busting torque and 365 foot-pounds of max reverse torque. It delivers up to 50 percent more torque compared to the leading cordless 3/8” impact wrench.

It matches the power capabilities of many pneumatic impact wrenches so technicians can get jobs done fast, with less tools. Technicians and operators can use the IQV20 W5132 3/8” and ½” Impactools to quickly loosen and tighten a variety of fasteners with four accurate power and control settings.

“Technicians are under more and more pressure to get the job done efficiently, and a versatile tool like the IQV20 W5132 allows them to apply maximum power to a number of applications, getting the work done quickly and without having to switch to other tools,” said Brian Fetner, global product manager for cordless power tools at Ingersoll Rand. “The new Ingersoll Rand W5132 Impactool is an advanced tool designed for a variety of workers in industrial and vehicle service industries.”

The W5132 has 365 foot-pounds of maximum reverse torque and a weight of only 5.1 pounds, giving it the best power-to-weight ratio of any cordless impact tool on the market. The tool is available with a 3/8” or ½” square drive and four power and control settings. Each setting operates at maximum reverse torque so technicians don’t need to switch settings to remove a stubborn fastener. The four power modes for forward control include:

  • Full Power: Tightening bolts on brake calipers, transmissions, axles and flanges that previously required a pneumatic impact tool. The full power setting on the IQV20 W5132 impact wrench delivers up to 340 foot-pounds of torque so technicians do not have to switch tools.
  • Mid Power: The mid-power setting tightens fasteners at up to 240 foot-pounds of torque for applications that don’t require maximum torque speeds.
  • Wrench Tight: Instead of changing to a hand wrench, technicians can use the tool’s wrench tight setting to tighten fasteners at 10-to-24 foot-pounds of torque. In this setting, the tool automatically shuts off so that bolts are not over-torqued on parts such as suspension bolts, motor mounts, brake calipers, bumper covers, lug nuts, other general maintenance and repair operations (MRO) and assembly applications.
  • Hand Tight: The hand tight setting turns slowly, creating a snug fit for parts such as valve covers, transmission pans, drum housings and other light fastening applications at two to nine foot-pounds of torque. When the tool reaches the point of impact, it also shuts off to avoid over-torqued fasteners.

In addition, the tool comes equipped with a shadowless 60 lumen Chip-on-Board (COB) LED task light that provides a 360-degree ring of light to the area that needs servicing. The light has four settings for high-, medium- and low-light environments, providing increased visibility and access, as well as an off mode.

The W5132 Impactool features the same high-durability construction as other Ingersoll Rand Impactools. The composite housing is chemical-resistant and features a patented steel reinforced frame for optimal durability.

The compact brushless motor transfers energy efficiently, delivering accurate torque for several repair and maintenance applications including tire and wheel lug nuts, engine bays, brake hubs, axle wheel nuts, interior dashboard components, support brackets, undermount installation and repair, flange bolts, diesel engine repair, machine rebuilds, rail maintenance, industrial machine maintenance, manufacturing equipment repair, machinery installation and equipment disassembly.

The 20-volt battery is compatible with the Ingersoll Rand IQV20 Series™ battery system. Visit for more information about the W5132 Impactool.
