For the trade professional working on a ceiling at a difficult angle, it matters that the 1/4″ hex impact driver or 3/8″ impact wrench in their hand is the most compact 12V tool in its class. In fact, it matters a lot. The Bosch PS42 12V impact driver delivers a maximum torque rating of 975 In.-Lbs. and weighs just under two pounds (w/2.0 Ah battery) while the Bosch PS82 12V impact wrench offers a torque rating of 85 Ft./Lbs. at 2.2 pounds. (Due to higher capacities, Bosch measures impact wrenches in Ft.-Lbs.).
EC Brushless Motor Delivers Maximum Power
The Bosch PS42 12V impact driver and Bosch PS82 12V impact wrench are the right tools for serial driving applications, with the capability to complete virtually all driving tasks found on the jobsite.
