Greenlee Utility (Rockford, IL) has announced the new HW3 Hydraulic Impact Wrench with an industry-leading power-to-weight ratio. It features Greenlee Cool Grip™ technology – a new, patent-pending polymer design that dissipates heat away from touch points, such as the handle of the unit. This enables users to safely operate the unit for longer periods of time, says the company. When compared to the previous model (H6510), the Greenlee Utility HW3 features 20 percent more torque (up to 1,283 ft-lbs) and 14 percent less weight – an industry-leading power-to-weight ratio in this category of hydraulic tools, the company adds. A newly-designed self-regulating flow control prevents over-speed and over-torque at high flow rates, and a hydraulic check valve eliminates damage from improper connections.
