The CP8849 delivers a powerful 850+ ft.-lbs. (1150+ Nm) and has four settings in forward, two of which are shut-off options, and one in reverse. This rugged, powerful and durable tool is ideal for general maintenance on light and heavy vehicles, tire changing on passenger vehicles, SUVs and light pickup trucks and MRO applications, said the company.
In addition to the two shut-off modes, the CP8849 offers a 50 percent of maximum torque and a 100 percent of maximum torque forward setting, as well as a full power reverse setting. Each operating mode is easily set by pressing the selected option of the brushless motor. To make the operator’s job even easier, Chicago Pneumatic introduced a unique feature: a display at the back of the tool which illuminates the selected mode. So, with a single glance and without having to change position, the operator knows exactly which setting is selected and whether the impact wrench is in forward or reverse.
The operating modes are accompanied by a number of other features that make the CP8849 easy and comfortable to use. The Side2Side forward and reverse system enables the user to select different settings with a single hand, while a thermo plastic rubber (TPR) over-molded handle guarantees a firm grip and sure handling. In addition, the CP8849 is equipped with four front LED lights that enable the operator to see clearly in dark spaces.
To ensure the CP8849 can withstand the rigors of professional vehicle service environments, it has shock-absorbing bumpers on each side and on top. A brushless motor ensures that this cordless impact wrench is also extremely durable.
The CP8849 12-inch cordless, brushless impact wrench is available with either a 1-inch or 2-inch anvil. It comes equipped with two batteries and one charger, with 20V 4Ah or 20V 6Ah options.
