Impact wrench from Chicago Pneumatic

CPT5928 - CP7727-CP7737 ApplicationChicago Pneumatic has launched a new compact CP7727/37 angle impact wrench for the vehicle service market.

Chicago Pneumatic says the CP7727/37 3/8” and ½” angle impact wrench is a powerful tool, capable of providing users with 220 ft-lbs (300Nm) of maximum torque in reverse. The impact wrench is designed with a direct drive system and a jumbo hammer mechanism with steel motor to provide the operator with a durable and efficient tool, enabling mechanics and vehicle service professionals to increase their uptime and productivity.

“We created our CP7727/37 to break away from the conventional design of angle impact wrenches and provide an overall better performing tool. Typically angle impact wrenches are designed with the motor in the handle, which can be bulky and uncomfortable to hold, but we have moved the motor into the head of the impact wrench, providing users with the maximum torque available directly at the point of impact. As such it is more efficient, with no energy wasted in a gear system, enabling users to improve their air usage, and ultimately profitability,” says Luis Clement, vice-president, Chicago Pneumatic Tools. “Everything about this tool is compact and it is lighter than existing products on the market. By weighing only 2.46lbs (1.12kg) users are able to work with the tool for longer periods of time without being subject to fatigue.”

The impact wrench is designed to be operated single-handedly with a full teasing trigger, giving great control to the operator and enabling them to easily remove or tighten fasteners in the most difficult to reach applications.
