Chicago Pneumatic has launched a new line of cordless tools, featuring a powerful cordless ½ inch impact wrench and a small cordless 3/8 inch impact wrench with a good power-to-weight ratio.
“We understand the daily abuse cordless tools receive in the shop, and we engineered the new Chicago Pneumatic cordless tool range with strength, durability and ease of use as the key ingredients in every component,” said John Stratton, global product marketing manager for Chicago Pneumatics Vehicle Service Division.
The CP cordless line includes a 12 volt 3/8 inch impact wrench, a 19.2 volt ½ inch impact wrench, a 12 volt 3/8 inch drill, an LED work light and universal charger. Each product features moulded rubber battery encasing to protect against accidental drops and shop abuse, and rubber over moulded handles to provide good ergonomic balance and support.
The products feature lithium ion battery packs with an easy connect battery system, which are guaranteed to remain cool during long periods of use. The tools also were designed with one-hand forward/reverse toggles and feather touch triggers.
Stratton says “The CP Cordless line brings technicians a complete range of cordless tools that combine performance and durability with ease of use.”
