MRO impact wrenches offer optimum safety

Published:  06 April, 2016

Chicago Pneumatic has launched two new straight impact wrenches with D-handle to complete its industrial maintenance range. The new CP6763-D18D ¾” and CP6773-D18D 1” wrenches were previously available in pistol version only, but have now been designed in a straight version with D-handle to give users more flexibility and choice. There are now four impact wrenches in the range, additionally the ¾” straight impact wrench is one of only a few products on the market with a D-handle.

According to the manufacturer, these rugged pneumatic tools offer maintenance, repair and operations (MRO) users in metal fabrication, oil and gas, heavy machinery, petrochemical, mining and minerals processing and other heavy industries, high performance and excellent ergonomics for optimum safety and user comfort.

The CP67X3-D18D industrial impact wrenches are claimed to have an outstanding power-to-weight ratio, providing a high maximum torque of 1300 ft.lbs (1760 Nm) for only 14.5 lbs/6.6 kg (CP6763) and 14.7 lbs/6.7 kg (CP6773) respectively. In addition, these tools have a short and compact body, at just 11.4” (290 mm) long, which allows good access to tight areas enabling users to work with more precision and efficiency.

The CP67X3-D18D impact wrenches have high strength and durability thanks to their steel motor and metal power setting and housing. A steel clutch housing and aluminum motor housing make them rugged, providing high reliability in the harshest uses. These impact wrenches are user-friendly. Features such as an ergonomic grip and power setting that is accessible from both sides, as well as a comfortable side handle are said to make this tool easy to use and carry. In addition, they include a hole and a ring retaining system for improved safety and flexibility.

Harald Odenman, Chicago Pneumatic tools product manager commented: “With its extreme power, high quality and great ergonomics, the CP67X3-D18D is an outstanding bolting tool for demanding MRO applications.

“Operators can be confident that they can work efficiently and with better safety with this new user-friendly impact wrench series.”

The CP67X3-D18D impact wrenches are now available from Chicago Pneumatic Tools authorised distributors.
