Interviewing the IR 2135 TI MAX
The 2135TiMAX is the perfect tool for busy workmen and mechanics that can simply not afford for second class tools holding up jobs and worksites. The titanium body is tough as nails and ensures that you will not be let down. The control system is highly efficient and makes full use of the air power that drives the wrench.
750 lbs/ft of operating torque ensures that the power is at the end of your fingers exactly when you need it. The power system is second to none and will definitely impress the socks off of any hardened construction worker.
However, the price tag of $250 is certainly extremely high. IR also have two other air powered torque wrenches in the 1/2 inch hose connection range. Both are lesser specs but the IR 231C is half the price and IR 236 is a third the price of the 2135TiMAX.
