Chicago Pneumatic has launched three powerful new air tools: the CP7748TL, CP7776  and new generation CP7749. 

The robust CP7748TL ½-inch composite torque limited impact wrench is ideal for passenger vehicle, light truck and SUV tire changing applications. The torque limited function enables efficient torque level control for each tire-change job, and enables the user to quickly and easily snug bolts without over tightening and damaging studs. The operator must then use a torque wrench to torque bolts to the manufacturer’s specifications.

The CP7748TL is designed to provide a limited amount of torque in the forward position (approximately 60 ft.-lbs. [90 Nm] in one second of operation) and boasts 925 ft.-lbs. (1250 Nm) of maximum torque in reverse for removing weathered and stubborn lug nuts. The forward/reverse switch is smooth and easy to use with only one setting position in both directions. The tool also features a contoured grip handle with a thermoplastic rubber (TPR) grip to provide better comfort to the operator.

The new CP7776 1-inch metal pneumatic impact wrench offers high power and durability for general service work and tire changing on heavy vehicles and trucks. Designed in response to customer demand for a robust wrench with an easy-to-hold pistol-style handle, the cost-effective CP7776 delivers high power, with 1,770 ft.-lbs. (2,400 Nm) of torque in reverse. The ergonomic forward/reverse regulator with three position power settings and a full teasing trigger mean the wrench is user-friendly. Additional features include a TPR grip, a rotating side handle, and an angled-down exhaust that blows air away from the operator.

The new CP7749 lightweight and high power ½-inch composite impact wrench delivers 955 ft.-lbs. (1,300 Nm) of true maximum torque in reverse and weighs just 3.95 lbs. (1.8 Kg). Its ultra-compact design of only 6.7 inches (171 mm) in length enables operators to easily work in difficult-to-access areas while providing enough power to remove the most stubborn fasteners in any vehicle service application.

In addition to power, the CP7749 is ergonomic. Only one hand is needed to control both the power and the forward/reverse selectors. The easy-to-use side-to-side forward/reverse system, two-stage trigger and speed regulator provide optimum operational control. The CP7749 is ideal for all general applications, including work on the chassis, transmission, engine and exhaust, the company says.

“With the launch of these three new powerful impact wrenches, we can now offer our customers a complete solution for all of their tooling requirements,” says Luis Clement, Chicago Pneumatic Tools vice president.
