Ingersoll Rand Announces New 20V Cordless Ratchets On the IQV20 Series Platform

R3100 Series ratchets combine the convenience of cordless and the power of air. Check out all the details on these updated tools in the info below.

Ingersoll Rand, a global leader in professional tools and equipment, is adding new ratchets to its evolving IQV20 Series cordless line. The Ingersoll Rand R3130 3/8ʺ and R3150 ½ʺ 20V cordless ratchet wrenches provide the power, portability and access users need for tight access jobs. These ratchets are ideal for engine repairs, under-car work, and light industrial maintenance, repair and operations (MRO) applications.

The Ingersoll Rand R3130 and R3150 ratchets are in a class of their own, as competitive cordless ratchets are lower voltage and deliver much less power. The cordless ratchets deliver 54 ft-lb of torque to complete automotive and industrial equipment repairs quickly. The R3100 Series ratchets are manufactured with the same durable heads as Ingersoll Rand air-powered ratchets, which are proven to stand up to tough bolts. In addition, the patent-pending metal and composite housing and all-metal gear train help the tool survive repeated drops on garage or plant floors.

The compact 20V lithium-ion battery gives technicians freedom from air lines and the versatility to use this tool anywhere.

“In most service bays, there are two air lines — one on each side of the car,” said Steve Jenson, global portfolio manager – cordless tools, Ingersoll Rand. “A technician will typically hook up two to five different tools during the course of a job. Using a R3100 Series cordless ratchet allows the technician to complete the job more efficiently with less time wasted connecting and disconnecting tools from the air line.”

The new R3100 Series ratchets are replacing the preceding R380 models. The R3100 Series ratchets have a unique slim-line design to easily access narrow spaces.

“We designed the R3100 Series ratchets with a unique in-line battery design,” Jenson said. “The battery pack sits behind the palm of your hand and the ratchet can fit into the same spots as your arm.”

Ingersoll Rand made significant improvements to the cordless battery platform as a result of technical advances.

Technological advances also enabled Ingersoll Rand to make significant improvements to the cordless battery platform. The intelligent battery management system provides power-level and flow-rate control from the battery to the switch to the motor. The 20V lithium-ion battery delivers a high charge capacity and low internal impedance for maximum power and extended runtime.

The R3100 Series tool kits come with the option of one or two 1.5 Ah battery pack(s) that is (are) interchangeable with most IQV20 Series tools. The IQV20 Series line currently includes the W7150 ½ʺ High-Torque Cordless Impact Wrench, W5130 3/8ʺ Mid-Torque Cordless Impact Wrench and L5110 LED Cordless Task Light.
