Chicago Pneumatic has upgraded its CP8848 1/2” cordless impact wrench to provide 10 percent higher power. This impact wrench, which is the flagship product in its cordless range is the perfect companion for those working in the automotive or maintenance sectors, and it is designed to offer superior power and battery performance for increased productivity, durability, ease of use and mobility. 

The wrench now delivers up to 850 ft/lbs (1150Nm) torque in reverse, providing the high performance of an air tool, but with the maneuverability of a battery-powered tool, enabling powerful and efficient bolting,” says Yann Pasco, global business development manager - vehicle service at Chicago Pneumatic Tools. “We are constantly innovating to develop high quality products that deliver higher power, but that are easy to use, in response to customer demand. With this upgraded wrench our customers can benefit from a higher power while enjoying mobility enabling them to get their job done faster and more comfortably.”

The advanced technology of the 20V/4Ah CP20XP (20V/6Ah will be available in February 2017) Lithium-ion batteries provide the operator with more power and a run-time which is twice that of other conventional products. The shock resistant and durable batteries slide smoothly into the tools’ cradle and are released via a quick release button. They feature triple protection circuitry and individual cell monitoring to prevent overheating and overloading during extended periods of use. The easily visible charge gauge provides accurate battery level information to help minimize downtime.

There are five cordless tools in the range – the CP8848 1/2” impact wrench, the compact CP8828 3/8” impact wrench, the lightweight CP8818 1/4” impact driver, the strong and versatile CP8548 1/2” hammer drill, and the ultra-compact CP8528 3/8” drill driver. Each of these tools provides superior power and torque while ergonomic handles and strategically placed switches guarantee ease of use. In addition, tool components and the housing were engineered to provide maximum reliability and durability for increased tool life.

All CP cordless tool packs come with two batteries and a charger. Extra batteries and chargers are available. In addition, CP offers a range of genuine accessories, from drill bits to impact wrench sockets.

The CP cordless tools, batteries and chargers come with a three year limited warranty (this warranty may vary by country). The entire range is available from Chicago Pneumatic Tools authorized distributors and the upgraded CP8848 impact wrench is now available in U.S. and Korea, and expected to be available worldwide in April 2017.
