SPARKS, Md. — While drills remain a tool bag standard, tradespeople are increasingly using impact drivers, and accessories designed for impact driver use are growing three times faster than those designed for non-impact use. In response, Crescent APEX introduces Vortex Impact Power Bits and Accessories to help electricians, plumbers, HVAC techs, construction pros and MRO specialists better perform high-frequency, torque-demanding screw, nut and socket driving.
Impact drivers work best when used with accessories rated for impact use. Vortex Impact Power Bits, Impact Socket Adapters and Magnetic Nut Setters are 100% impact rated.
As with any high-frequency tool, durability and ease-of-use matter. Vortex Impact Power Bits and Accessories feature the Vortex Impact Torsion Zone, with unique steel formulation and heat treatment providing 50 times the life of standard bits. They feature optimized tip geometry for exact fastener fitment to eliminate cam-out and promote fastener retention, as well as laser markings for long-lasting, quick and easy size identification.
“Impact drivers increase the efficiency of trade work, but only when paired with great accessories,” said Mary Hughey, product manager, Crescent APEX. “Vortex Impact Power Bits and Accessories — whether for deck and construction work, equipment install/repair, duct work, roofing or gutter/awning installation — represent the pinnacle of innovation.”
Crescent APEX also offers the virtually indestructible alphaCASE™ storage container to organize Vortex Impact Power Bits, Impact Socket Adapters and Magnetic Nut Setters.
Crescent APEX Vortex Impact Power Bits and Accessories are available at Lowe’s Home Improvement and other major tool retailers. For more information, visit www.crescenttool.com.
