The new Snap-on 14.4 Volt Cordless Screwdriver (CTS761) is built for speed, performance and comfort, and is the latest addition to the Snap-on MicroLithium family.

Snap-on says the new versatile CTS761 will give customers more managed power for greater control than ever before from a cordless screwdriver.

“With 50 percent more torque and higher RPMs than the previous model, the new CTS761 cordless screwdriver provides all the speed and power a pro needs,” said Rodger Isetts, product manager for Snap-on. “The compact design of the CTS761 lets service technicians access those hard-to-reach places that are impossible to reach with other power tools. The battery on the CTS761 is not only interchangeable with our other popular Snap-on MicroLithium tools, but it also charges in under 30 minutes, which translates into less downtime and more productivity.”

The Snap-on 14.4 Volt Cordless Screwdriver (CTS761) offers users more flexibility than other cordless screwdrivers as the improved chuck holds long bits with the groove as well as short, one-inch bits. Users can choose between two speeds, 400 and 1,400 RPM, and the patented variable-speed trigger provides precise control and helps avoid over-torqueing and breaking fasteners. The cushion grip handle gives users ultimate control and comfort with less fatigue and a knurled chuck collar provides a non-slip grip even with oily hands.

The CTS761 also offers improved safety as a micro-controller senses temperature and amperage and will shut down power to the motor before it overheats. The tool housing features vents and fans that keep the motor running cool under high-use conditions. Compatible with other 14.4 volt Snap-on MicroLithium tools, the CTS761 battery pack is small and lightweight yet provides more power and a longer run time than the competitions’ 10.8 volt and 12 volt batteries. An on-board fuel gauge indicates the battery’s state of charge and is activated for three seconds with each trigger pull, and a round tri-color LED changes color accordingly, letting the user know how much battery life remains.
