Mt. Prospect, Ill., August 23, 2016 – For the commercial ventilation installer 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 delivers a maximum torque rating of 975 In.-Lbs. and weighs just under two pounds (w/2.0 Ah battery) while the PS82 offers a torque rating of 85 Ft./Lbs. at 2.2 pounds. (Due to higher capacities, Bosch measures impact wrenches in Ft.-Lbs.)
