Matco Tools Kicks Off Fall Season With Two Product Launches

Matco Tools’ product lineup now includes two new products—the MSCX service cart and the 18-Volt, 3/8-inch Cordless Impact Wrench Kit

The MSCX service cart offers new, functional features, while keeping many of the characteristics and value technicians have come to expect from the Matco line of service carts. The design offers an impressive 16,458 cubic inches of lockable storage capacity with a barn door style door that swings open 270 degrees and can be held with magnets, giving users quick and easy access to tools.

Matco’s new service cart also features quick-release gas pistons that allow the lid to be laid back in seconds for jobs where space is tight. And, the stainless steel lid not only looks great, but doubles as a practical, durable work surface. A rubber push handle along with four swivel casters, two of which can be unlocked, provide optimal movement making the cart versatile and reliable.

Also new to Matco’s lineup is the 18-Volt, 3/8-inch Cordless Impact Wrench Kit, which includes an impact wrench, 4.0 Ah 18-volt lithium battery and a 14.4-volt/18-volt slide type battery charger all within a convenient, rugged case. The new 4.0 Ah battery delivers a 33%  longer runtime than 3.0 Ah batteries, giving technicians more time to get the work done. Plus, the new battery capacity indicator reminds the user how long the cordless tool will continue working.

The MCL1838IW 3/8-inch impact wrench boasts a new 18-volt motor that generates up to 230 ft. lbs. of working torque and 325 ft. lbs. of breakaway torque, along with a heavy duty clutch mechanism that provides high output reversing torque. The cordless wrench also features a variable speed trigger, comfortable ergonomic handle and balanced design to make use as easy as possible.
