Chicago Pneumatic's new range of cordless
tools provides more power, mobility and productivity

Innovative new high power cordless tools that deliver the power and performance of an air tool while providing the mobility of a battery tool are being launched by Chicago Pneumatic. The new impact wrenches, impact driver and drill drivers offer superior power and battery performance for increased productivity, durability, ease of use and mobility.

The powerful and efficient CP8848 ½" impact wrench, the flagship product of the series, is the perfect companion for those working in the industrial maintenance, repair and operation (MRO) sectors. The CP8848 boasts a custom-designed motor and durable gearbox that provides a powerful 775 ft-lbs. (1,050 Nm) of torque and weighs just 6.9 lbs. (3.1 kg).

The advanced technology of the 20-Volt/4Ah CP20XP and 12-Volt/1.5Ah CP12XP Lithium-ion batteries provide the operator with more power and a runtime 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.

"For too long, industrial MRO professionals had to make a choice between the power of air tools or the mobility provided by cordless," said Luis Clement, Chicago Pneumatic Tools Vice-president. "Our new range of cordless tools eliminates that dilemma and helps them get their job done faster and more comfortably."

Completing CP's new cordless line are 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 new CP cordless tools, batteries and chargers come with a three year limited warranty (this warranty may vary by country). The entire range is now available from Chicago Pneumatic Tools authorized distributors.

New CP6135-D80 super industrial 1-1/2" impact wrench

Best power-to-weight ratio in its class, premium quality and excellent ergonomics for optimum safety.

Chicago Pneumatic has launched the new CP6135-D80 impact wrench, one of the most powerful 1-1/2" industrial impact wrenches in its range of high performance tools. The super industrial pneumatic tool offers users in the oil, gas and petrochemical, mining and minerals processing and other heavy industries, exceptional power-to-weight ratio, premium quality and excellent ergonomics for optimum safety and user comfort.

The new tool has the highest power-to-weight ratio for its class of 167.1 ft-lbs / lbs [500Nm/kg] and provides a high maximum torque of 5,900ft-lbs [8,000Nm] for only 35.3lbs [16 Kg], and a high impact rate of 760 BPM.  As a result, it meets virtually any super industrial bolting and unbolting need in heavy industry, helping maintenance engineers minimize downtime and therefore enabling companies to save associated costs.

The CP6135-D80 impact wrench is premium quality. The tool has high durability thanks to its Rocking Dog clutch mechanism, which is encapsulated with grease for constant lubrication, and its plain steel motor parts. The impact wrench also has a steel clutch housing and aluminum body, meaning it is rugged, providing high reliability in the harshest uses.

The operator's safety is another key user benefit delivered by the new CP6135-D80. It has a low vibration of 10.9m/s2, which is 30 per cent lower than comparable products, and a low noise level for excellent user comfort.  It has an angled down front air exhaust that blows air away from the operator.

The wrench is ergonomically designed and incredibly user-friendly with features such as a reversible side handle (6-position), a full teasing trigger for smooth operations and to increase control, and convenient forward/reverse switch for easier manipulation.  In addition, it includes a balancer attachment to suspend the tool for increased safety and productivity.

"With its extreme power, high quality and great ergonomics, the CP6135-D80 is an outstanding bolting tool," says Luis Clement, Chicago Pneumatic Tools Vice-president.  "Operators can be confident that they can work efficiently and with better safety, with this new user-friendly impact wrench."

The CP6135-D80 impact wrench is now available from Chicago Pneumatic Tools authorized distributors. For further information or a distributor in your area, please view website:
