Chicago Pneumatic has launched the most compact and powerful ½” torque limited impact wrench in its class that prevents vehicle service specialists from overtightening nuts during wheel and tire changing jobs. The new CP7748TL builds on the success of the previous model and has been designed to offer operators supreme levels of comfort and power, enabling them to quickly apply the correct torque levels and therefore improve productivity while maintaining the safety of a vehicle and its passengers.
The new tool is 14.3 per cent shorter than its previous version, measuring just 6.89 inches (175 mm) in length, and weighing 4.4 lbs (2kgs). Despite its small size, the new CP7748TL is torque limited to 66 ft lbs. (90Nm) in the forward direction and delivers a torque of 960 ft.lbs. (1,300 Nm) in reverse. As a result, operators can save time changing wheels as bolts are tightened to the right torque faster than using non-torque limited alternatives.
The CP7748TL torque limited impact wrench is packed full of innovative design features that contribute to its exceptional ergonomics so operators can get their job done quickly. At the center of the design is a novel one-hand forward/reverse ring system, which is easier to use than controls traditionally found on the back of the tool. The CP7748TL offers two different settings – torque limited in the forward direction, or full power setting in reverse – and users can change direction easily by simply turning the ring from anywhere around the tool.
