Offering top of the line performance, the impact wrench packs 1,190 foot-pounds of bolt breakaway torque. Combined with a free speed of 8,000 rpm and 1,270 blows per minute, the MG725 offers more power than the competition, resulting in increased productivity.

With its unique one-piece housing, the MG725 is an extremely durable, lightweight and balanced unit that minimizes vibration. This allows for superior control with less user fatigue, enabling techs to work for longer periods of time without compromising comfort. Fatigue is also reduced through the tool’s patented field-replaceable cushion grip and cushion grip trigger button, providing comfort with control.

The power tool features a slim nose, allowing techs access into restricted applications and tight spaces, which provides more versatility on the job.

To further extend the life of the tool, the MG725’s impact mechanism is continuously lubricated through its sealed-in oil bath with Red Line synthetic oil. The wrench also comes with a protective boot to help keep it cleaner longer and comes with a two-year warranty.
