Chicago Pneumatic Introduces Redesigned 1/2-Inch Impact Wrench

The new Chicago Pneumatic CP7748 is more powerful and more compact than its predecessor, and features a unique forward/reverse system for one-handed power and directional control of the tool. Its light weight and unsurpassed durability make it ideally suited for workshops, tire shops and roadside applications where power, ease of use and reliability are musts, said the company.

“Improving a tool that’s been a long-time performer and consumer favorite is huge,” said Chicago Pneumatic Product Marketing Manager, Omar Macon. “We’ve combined what’s best about the previous CP7748 with what our customers said would make this tool even better.”

The result is a 1/2-inch impact wrench that delivers a powerful 960 ft.-lbs. of power in forward and reverse and weighs just 4.4 lbs. — all in a package that’s 14 percent more compact than the original. This CP7748 also features Chicago Pneumatic’s exclusive 360° swivel air inlet for the highest degree of maneuverability. The tool’s curved, pistol grip handle is slip-resistant and cushioned for confident and comfortable handling.

Forward and reverse power and direction are easily controlled with one-handed operation of an innovative Power Control Ring System that can be accessed from anywhere on the tool’s motor housing. Two forward power settings (40 percent and max power) and full power in reverse can be selected with ease, even in the tightest of spaces.

“This Power Control Ring System simplifies directional change and power selection,” Macon added. “The new CP7748 is an easy-to-use tool with the power, performance, and value built for everyday use.”

A hard chromium aluminum cylinder and anodized end plates surround the powerful motor and twin hammer mechanism for long-lasting durability. The all-new CP7748 1/2-inch impact wrench is also available with a 2-inch extended anvil.
