Ingersoll Rand Launches New 3/4-Inch Impactool

Ingersoll Rand said its new, versatile 259 3/4-inch Impactool offers great performance and ergonomics at a better value than competitive models.

“The 259 is an ideal solution for garage, light- and medium-duty fleet applications, especially when shops may be confined by the size of their air lines,” said Adam Brown, global portfolio manager for Impactools and ratchets at Ingersoll Rand. “We designed this tool to deliver best-in-class performance of 1,050 ft./lb. max torque, while minimizing tool weight and offering superior flexibility in air line use.”

The 259 features a “rocking dog” impact mechanism that performs well with a variety of air pressures and supply conditions, eliminating the required cost of upgrading to a 1/2-inch air line, according to its maker. The tool weighs up to two pounds less and is better balanced than competing tools, providing an excellent power-to-weight ratio and greater ease of use. The tool’s minimal size and weight even allow for one-handed operation as needed. In addition to reducing operator fatigue, better weight distribution makes working in confined spaces much less awkward, Ingersoll Rand said.

The 259 Impactool’s non-biased motor delivers its maximum torque in both forward and reverse. Two power settings in forward and reverse along with a variable-speed trigger provide superior control to technicians. A silenced exhaust further adds to user comfort in extended use situations, the company added.

NRS Brakes Releases Brake Pads for Tesla 3

NRS Brakes says its galvanized backing plates ensure no rust or corrosion occurs from lack of use due to regen braking.


NRS Brakes has designed galvanized brake pads for the Tesla Model 3 specifically for electric/hybrid vehicle technology.

The company says (ADAS) vehicles demand a higher quality of all parts, especially safety items such as brakes.

As moisture creeps through the porous nature of the friction material, it is compromising the untreated backing plat, NRS Brakes says. Usually, moisture in the friction material is dissipated as heat is created through normal braking routines.
