When strength and efficiency matter, the Flex 24V High Torque Impact Wrench delivers
Strength, enduring performance, and efficiency are paramount when it comes to impact wrenches. The Flex High Torque Impact Wrench not only meets these requirements but exceeds them. Let’s take a closer look at the impressive features packed into this powerhouse.
Flex 24V 1/2″ High Torque Impact Wrench Design Notes
Vibration Control: A Handle That Feels Good
The Flex stands out with its unique “shock shield” design, which isolates the motor housing from the handle. This design effectively reduces vibrations, making it incredibly comfortable to operate. Say goodbye to the discomfort associated with many high torque models.
Weight and Balance: A Tool That Fits Nicely in Your Hand
Overall, the Flex feels great in your hand, offering a well-balanced experience. However, it’s worth noting that it is a bit on the heavier side compared to other cordless high-torque options. The battery itself weighs just over 9 pounds, which may be a consideration for some users.
Auxiliary Mode: Reverse Mode, Simplified
One standout feature is the auxiliary mode, which automatically engages when you begin loosening a fastener. This feature ensures that nuts and bolts do not fall out or potentially cause harm. After a few turns, the motor stops automatically, adding an extra layer of convenience and safety.
Additional Features: A Toolkit Fit for Any Task
The Flex 24V 1/2″ High Torque Impact Wrench comes with a range of additional features, including:
- LED work light
- Therma-Tech Thermal Management
- 5.0Ah Li-ion battery and 160W fast charger included in the kit
- Flex Hardshell Phone Case
Flex 24V 1/2″ High Torque Impact Wrench Prices: Affordable Power

Additionally, Flextronics offers a 5-year “end-to-end” warranty that covers tools, batteries, and registered chargers.

The Bottom Line: Dependable Force for Any Task
In our opinion, the Flex 24V 1/2″ High Torque Impact Wrench is an exceptional product. With three torque levels and removal modes, it proves its usefulness in various situations. Whether you’re tackling lug nuts in your garage or installing hefty hex bolts at a job site, the Flex delivers the power and performance you expect from a high torque impact wrench.
While the Flex 24V system currently only offers this cordless impact wrench, we anticipate that the lineup will expand rapidly. We hope to see complementary compact and medium torque impact wrenches among the upcoming releases.
