Proper preventive maintenance of your air impact wrench protects it from damage while ensuring its peak performance. Following the manufacturers recommended maintenance guidelines of regular oil and grease helps ensure your tools maximum performance, extends its life, and helps prevent costly downtime and repairs.
One common complaint shops that repair impacts hear is, my tool is running slow or does not have the power it used to. Impact wrenches are frequently used in environments where the tool is exposed to oil, dust, and grit. These foreign substances will build up, if not cleaned and lubricated regularly, and cause the impact to run slower with less power. It will also damage the internal parts requiring they be replaced, thus incurring a potentially costly repair. Please consult your product maintenance manual for recommendations for frequency of grease and oil applications to help avoid this. Please see Ingersoll Rand's approved grease and oil products below to use for proper preventive maintenance of your impact.
