Impact Wrench Reviews

Milwaukee 2767 Impact or 2863 with One Key Video


We compare the Milwaukee 2767 impact wrench to the 2863 with OneKey. Both impact wrenches are powered by the M18 FUEL platform, furthermore, they both include 1/2″ anvils. As part of the Home Depot PROspective program, they send us tools to get our thoughts. Since we’ve already reviewed the 2767 on our site, we decided to compare it to its newer cousin.

You can find the Milwaukee 2767 1/2″ High Torque Impact in the original review and also in our Best Cordless Impact Wrench Shootout.

Be sure to check out the video where we compare the 2863 with Torque Sticks: Milwaukee 2863 Impact Wrench vs Torque Sticks

Milwaukee 2767 vs 2863 with OneKey

Impact power for both impacts are the same. From the brushless motor, to the controls, anvils, and even the batteries are the same. Fastening torque for both is 1,000 ft-lbs while nut-busting (loosening) torque is 1,400 ft-lbs. The only real difference is the OneKey electronics on the 2863. Speed, power, and even torque can be controlled and limited by the Milwaukee OneKey app.

Using OneKey, you can set the max speed, bolt removal speed, and limit torque. You can even choose Lug Nut Control, hence the 2863 will limit the torque to 80-130 ft-lbs or 130-180 ft-lbs. Depending on which lug nut control setting you choose.

The 2767 only has 4 power modes that are basically 25%, 50%, 75%, and 100%. You can also choose Bolt Removal mode, so the tool sense when the fastener is loose and it slows down.

Final Thoughts

If you’re looking for just sheer power, then the Milwaukee 2767 M18 FUEL Impact Wrench is a great choice. This actually won our impact wrench shootout two years ago, however, only one other impact has come close to surpassing the power. If you do a lot of wheels and tires, or you’re looking for controllability, then reach for the Milwaukee 2863 with OneKey. Home Depot has the 2767-22 (kit) for $449, and the 2863-22 (kit) is $499.
