Chicago Pneumatic has launched a new 1⁄2-in. cordless impact wrench, the CP8854 series. According to the company, the wrench is made for tire changing and quick service wheel applications on light vehicles including cars and vans.
Mechanics can use the wrench to remove wheels quickly for access to brakes, suspension and shock absorbers, and with a built-in shut off feature, techs can then pre-tighten wheel nuts with no risk of over-tightening, the company says.
The wrench weighs in at 5.51 lbs., a length of 7.44 in., and includes the following features:
- 780 lb-ft. of torque at a speed of 4500 RPM
- One-hand reverse system
- Bi-material handle
- Minimal vibration levels of 9.3 m/s2
- A friction ring socket retainer
- An elastomer cover and over-heating protection
