Product Description

Product Description

Includes 28V Cordless M28 Lithium-Ion 1/2-in Impact Wrench with Case - 0779-22, (2) 28 Volt Lithium-Ion Batteries - 48-11-2830, One-Hour Charger - 48-59-2801, Carrying Case - 48-55-0779, Hanger Bracket, Quick Change Detent Kit, Product Manual

For years, tool manufacturers have been striving to produce cordless tools that are powerful enough to compete head-to-head with traditional corded tools. Here’s one case where they’ve succeeded: The Milwaukee 0779-22 V28 impact wrench is powered by a high-tech 28-volt lithium-ion battery that delivers an astonishing 3,900 in./lbs. of torque. Its high-performance, variable-speed motor operates at 1,450 rpm and produces 2,450 blows per minute of percussive force to crack free even the most rusted, frozen nuts. The industrial-quality magnesium motor housing adds durability without dramatically increasing the weight. Even so, this tool weighs in at a beefy 9 pounds.

The 0779-22 is the most powerful cordless impact wrench on the market, and it’ll handle many jobs that are typically reserved for corded or pneumatic drivers, including removing lug nuts from car, SUV and truck tires. This versatile tool can also be used to drive large lag screws and bore deep holes into wood. A steel ring is provided for attachment to the top of the tool. Use it to conveniently raise or lower the tool with a rope when working from a ladder, roof or other elevated position.

The wrench is a little over 12 inches long, but Milwaukee cleverly fitted this tool with reversible batteries that slide on from either the front or rear. When the battery is mounted on the front, the tool is a bit shorter. Sliding it on from the rear moves the battery back, allowing the wrench to reach into tighter spaces. Note that you must use heavy-duty impact sockets with this cordless wrench. Standard sockets aren’t recommended because they could shatter during use.Joseph Truini

I have owned the Dewalt 1/2" Impact Wrench for several years. When I recently decided to do my own service on my 1.1/4 ton truck, I found out that the Dewalt just didn't have what it takes to loosen tire lug nuts. Enter the Milwaukee...

There is almost no way to describe this thing to you. First, it's BIG. It's not going to be the only Impact Wrench you own, because there are a lot of places it plain won't fit.

Second, it's HEAVY. Trying to hold this thing over your head to remove bolts requires some serious muscle. Not for the weak or faint of heart.

Finally, it's strong. Those lug nuts I was mentioning? Eight per wheel, and 32 total? This thing zipped the nuts off so fast I thought I had slipped off the first one! Took all 32 off, then a few hours later put all 32 back ON with one charge of the battery!!

And speaking of the battery - some genius at Milwaukee deserves a gold star. Remember when I said it won't fit certain places because of its size? Well, Milwaukee designed it so the battery can slide on from the front of the tool, or slide on from the back, and it works either way. Putting it on from the front makes the wrench shorter overall - if a little front heavy - while putting it on from the back gives you more room to get your wrench into tight spots by moving the battery pack out of the way.

BE WARNED that you should make certain you have a good set of impact sockets to go with this wrench. DO NOT attempt to use it with a standard socket, as you are likely to end up with shrapnel flying everywhere when the regular socket fails. Ask me how I know?!!

Bottom line - the tool is a little big for 'average' wrenching, but when you need to go after the big boys there is nothing like it!

Go buy one. You NEED it.

I was skeptical about buying this tool. A lot of money would be wasted if it didn't perform as advertised. I placed my trust in Milwaukee's reputation. When a negative reviewer has only one review to his credit - and that review is negative - that tells me that the reviewer is 100% negative and I disqualify his input from my decision making. When my 100psi impact wrench began failing to break free 15/16ths-inch cutting-blade nuts on a 1500-pound commercial mower, I knew more power was needed. Laying on my back under a raised cutting deck and pushing a 15-inch box-end wrench with a pipe extension with both feet and while pulling another such setup with both hands above the deck left me with an aching back for a month, but the 12-inch blade bolt and nut did come loose. Never again. After 8 months of use and a dozen blade changes, my worries have vanished. It takes about 15 seconds to break the nuts loose. The first time I used it - and the nut didn't break free in 3 seconds - my heart sank. Then it lifted. I was surprised that there is no reverse torque. I was expecting this wrench to kick like a mule after reading the break-dancing comment. One hand is all that is needed. I've removed lugs from trucks and cars and tractors. No problems. Another impressive fact is that I can remove 20 lugs on a vehicle and still have all four red power indicator lights burning on the battery. Granted, there are impact wrenches made for 18-wheelers and tanks that are rated in the thousands of foot-pounds of torque, but this 28V Milwaukee slid under the wire for me. It is about all the power I need. Every year I hear about a compressor exploding and causing injury or death. Perhaps condensation had accumulated inside the tank for years and rusted the walls. Compressor tanks do need to be drained.Read more ›

I just bought this tool to use as a road service assist tool in my race car trailer. It was rated at over 200 ft.lbs. of torque which should have been more than adequate to remove lug nuts that were torqued on at 95 ft.lbs. Alas, the impact wrench just hammers away without breaking loose the lug nuts. I still need to use a breaker bar and loosen the initial torque manually. I have been using Milwaukee tools for 35 years and have very seldom been disappointed in one. This will still be a useful tool, I just wish the power would have been rated accurately.

I just got the 0779-22 unit. I bought this unit after comparing it to the Dewalt 18v wrench. (Dewalt is coming out with a 36v, 325ft-lb wrench.) The biggest selling point was the variable speed capability of the Milwaukee. I have used this for a weekend of racing. Performed a few tire swaps and service on the trailer with ease, approx 60 cycles of lug nuts at 87ft-lbs., 50% batt usage. Use of a torque stick makes tightening a breeze.

It took me a few cycles to get used to the can't quite compete with my IR231 pneumatic wrench, but I am very impressed non the less.

The 0779-22 kit is a capable tool and I for one, am very satisfied.

I've had this tool for about 18 months ago. It has performed above expectations. On one battery it will remove 8 1/2 wheel lug bolts 4 5/8 gear box bolts and replace all on a center pivot sprinkler tower . Some of the towers we have worked on have been running in water for over 15 years without a bolt being turned(it would be the equivalent of changing four tires on a 3/4 ton pickup). It is a substantial tool but the weight packing it to the job is more than made up by the effort it saves at the job site. For quick jobs it is easier than dragging hoses and a air impact gun. It won't replace a good 1/2 drive air impact gun but it is a great addition to any tool box
