Chicago Pneumatic has unveiled its new ultra-lightweight ½” impact wrench – CP7732C – which is the new generation of the company’s best-selling ‘stubby’ and is the latest in a series of exceptionally compact tools for the vehicle service industry. This high quality compact tool delivers maximum customer value with an unbeatable power-to-weight ratio. The wrench is 20 per cent lighter than its predecessor, and has been designed in response to customer demand for smaller, and lighter tools, enabling mechanics to work easily in difficult-to-access areas.
The stubby CP7732C wrench is innovative, weighing just 2.2lbs (1 kg) and 4.3 in (108mm) in length while still providing a maximum torque of 460 ft.lbs (625 Nm) in reverse. The new compact impact wrench is perfect for use inside the vehicle and engine compartment for jobs on oil pans, seat bolts and body panels where tight spaces restrict the movement of conventional tools.
The tool is ergonomic and has been designed for maximum user comfort with a composite housing and thermo-plastic rubber handle. Users will appreciate the smooth mechanism of one hand forward/reverse and a new power setting system. The ergonomic curved handle reduces tension in the mechanic’s hand and helps reduce chances of an injury. In addition, because it is lighter than alternative tools, operators experience less fatigue.
Furthermore, a full teasing trigger gives the operator easy, controlled operation.
The innovative CP7732C wrench shares Chicago Pneumatic’s traditional characteristics such as high quality, robustness and ergonomics. A jumbo hammer mechanism, steel motor and aluminum clutch housing provide excellent performance and withstand the tough workshop environment.
Yann Pasco, product marketing manager at Chicago Pneumatic Tools says, “The impact wrench is part of our new range of compact tools, which have been developed with our ‘Size Matters’ philosophy. The tools are designed to bring high power in a compact size to enable users easier access to applications and power efficiency in confined spaces, and they are the perfect fit for any mechanic’s toolbox. . These new lightweight tools are more comfortable and convenient to use, and customers can benefit from our cost effective price”.
