ANNANDALE, NJ - Ingersoll Rand, a provider of vehicle service tools and equipment, has received a Professional Tool and Equipment News Innovation Award for the 2015MAX and 2025MAX Hammerhead low-profile Impactools.

The annual Professional Tool and Equipment News Innovation Awards recognize new products that help automotive technicians complete their jobs more quickly and efficiently. Ingersoll Rand won in the power tool category, and was presented with the award during the 2011 Automotive Aftermarket Industry Week in November in Las Vegas. 

"We are excited to see that PTEN recognized the game-changing innovation of the Hammerhead Impactool," said Nate Schmid, marketing manager for Vehicle Services with Ingersoll Rand. "We wanted to create a revolutionary product that improved productivity for technicians and made it easier to do their jobs."

The Ingersoll Rand 2015MAX and 2025MAX Hammerhead low-profile Impactools are designed for optimal performance, even in extremely confined spaces, delivering 180 ft.-lb. of torque. The Hammerhead features a conveniently located forward/reverse collar, providing unrestricted access to easily change the direction of the tool in tight spaces, where traditional tools frequently get jammed. Knuckle-saver reactionless torque eliminates kickback, and further protects technicians' hands while working in confined spaces.
