Air Impact Wrench Care Kit - Oil, Grease, and Grease Gun - IR/105-LBK1
Impact Wrench Care Kit, item# IR/115-LBK1, protects your air impact, with a metallic housing, from damage while ensuring its peak performance. Proper maintenance of your air impact ensures maximum performance while helping prevent costly downtime and repairs. This kit is for air impacts with a metallic housing and includes:
- 10Z4 oil
- 4oz of 105 grease
- Grease gun for applying
Most Ingersoll Rand impact wrenches, 1" drive or smaller, will have a flush type grease fitting where you can insert the grease gun and add grease lubricant. This is usually recommended to be done every 48 hours of use. You should also have the tool disassembled, cleaned, greased, and put back together periodically to ensure peak performance and help extend the life of the tool. It's recommended this is completed by a certified IR service center. There is a video link below showing how this is done.
Please consult your product maintenance manual for recommendations for frequency of grease and oil applications.

How often should you lubricate your impact wrench with oil? An Ingersoll Rand technical trainer once said: "Feed them like you feed yourself, once in the morning, once in the afternoon and once at night before you leave work." "The lubrication at night helps prevent condensation, which causes rust."
Always consult your product manual to ensure you follow manufacturers recommendations which include frequency of lubrication and air tool oil.
