New CP7749 vs IR 2135TiMAX – ½” Impact Wrenches

The Ingersoll Rand 2135TiMax ($269) has been the king of ½” impact guns for some time. With an operating weight of 3.95 lbs and max torque of 780 ft lbs the gun has the highest power to weight in its class. Chicago Pneumatic, looking to steal some of the business, is introducing a new ½” impact gun that will rival the Ingersoll Rand with the CP7749. The gun features some advances in design including a one hand forward and reverse control, easier to use by the trigger. The gun is also quieter at 95 dBA as well as a slightly lower investment for the CP7749 ($246). The Chicago Pneumatic gun does however weight a few ounces more at 4.37 lbs and only products 725 ft lbs torque. The CP marketing suggests this number is “true honest torque” which may be a shot at how others rate their torque.

No matter how you think this gun stacks up to the Ingersoll Rand the new Chicago Pneumatic is an awesome gun with some cool new features. “You’re going to sell a million of these!” – Rich Evans, builder, designer and owner of Huntington Beach Bodyworks, immediately following his first application test with the CP7749.The gun will be available soon and you can pre-order yours now. If you would like more info on the CP7749 checkout this Spec Flyer or contact the pros at Ohio Power Tool, 800-242-4424 or

Cash Back on Ingersoll Rand Air Tools

Ingersoll Rand is arguably the strongest name in automotive air tools. Obviously there are cheaper tools in the market place that discount suppliers will push on you but how long does it last with regular use and can you even get simple maintenance parts for it? That being said everyone wants to save some cash on anything they are buying!

Currently you can get Ingersoll Rand Air Tools at some of the lowest prices online from Ohio Power Tool. After you get a great price you will get up to an additional 15% of the purchase price of the tools, back to you in cash money. This is part of the IR Stimulus Plan, not that we haven’t seen enough “Stimulus Package Sales Promotions” but anytime you can get a great deal and then get a check on top of that I’m happy.

The Deal is good on most of the IR air tools (see all included models below): Impact Wrenches, Ratchets, Sanding & Polishing, Drills & Drivers, Grinders, Hammers & Scalers, Saws & Shears. If you have any questions on any IR air tools, uses, specs, repairs, parts, etc call the pros at Ohio Power Tool 800-242-4424 or email and you will have the answers!

New Ingersoll Rand 2115TiMax 3/8″ Impact

A short time ago Ingersoll Rand released the 2115TiMAX an updated version to the incredibly popular 2115Ti. In the tradition of the 2135TiMAX, market leader ½” impact, the new 2115TiMAX redefined the 3/8” impact category by setting the bar even higher for “power-to-weight” and “power-to-size”. With 300 ft-lbs of torque in a titanium body weighing less than 2.5 lbs and shorter than 6” it will be near impossible for any other impact to improve upon this design.  

So what changed for the new 2115TiMAX vs. 2115Ti? The new tool features an improved air flow system with 7-vane design, over the previous 6-vane design. The improved air flow also increases total power to 300 ft-lbs of reverse torque, about a 10% improvement. In addition the tool also gets new power controls, more ergonomic handle and new feather trigger.

“The new 2115TiMAX is the perfect blend of power and size, but we didn’t stop there,” said Mike Walker, vehicle channel business manager for Ingersoll Rand. “Technicians asked for a tool that was easy to handle and could stand up to frequent use on stubborn bolts. Once again our industry leading engineers were up to the challenge improving the feather touch trigger, enhancing the settings on the power regulator and improving the overall durability of the tool components. We’re confident technicians will find this tool suitable to use as their primary pneumatic impact wrench.”

We couldn’t be happier with these design improvements; I can’t wait to see what is next. Of course all the IR tools are backed by a free extended two-year limited warranty, available with registration of the tool online at

Top 10 New Tool Gifts for 2008

1.      PS50 Bosch Multi-X
Oscillating tools are the most popular tool gift for 2008 holidays. Fein owned the market for several years with their MultiMaster but at $300-400 outside of most people’s budget. Bosch’s new cordless Multi-X expands nicely on their 12v Max line up and is available in 2 models :PS50-2A ($179) & PS50-2B ($199).

2. 2420-22 Milwaukee M12 Hackzall
The new Hackzall is a very cool new tool. Basically a mini version of the popular Sawzall reciprocating saw this tool is great for pros and DIY guys alike. The Milwaukee M12 tool line up has been expanded tremendously and there are combo kits and free tool promotions that make the Hackzall very attractive. Price is $179 on Ohio Power Tool.  

3. 30063 Seesanke MicroExplorer
Probably outside more people’s gift giving price range at $690 the MicroExplorer is an investment. For pros it’s probably one of the best gifts you could give yourself. The inspection camera can record images and videos along with many other features including digital self-leveling.   

4. T308B Bosch Jigsaw
At under $10 per 5 pack these saw blades might make a great stocking stuffer for any woodworker or handyman. Unlike typical jigsaw blades these extra clean cut saw blades leave you wood cuts burr free and practically a finished edge. At only a few cents more per blade who wouldn’t get the T308B jigsaw blades?  

5. 2611-24 M18 2 Tool Combo Kit (free battery)
Milwaukee has long been known for some of the best cordless tools in the market. The new M18 hammer drill puts them well above the competition with 650 lb. torque. For a limited time the hammer drill includes the M18 Impact tool for free ($179 value)! To make the deal even better until Dec 31 Milwaukee is giving a free 3rd battery (mail-in rebate) with many of the M18 tools, this kit included. Sale price $349.

6. IQv144K IR Cordless Impact, drill, light (free socket set)
Ingersoll Rand, one of the top brands among mechanics, has been known for their air impact tools for quite some time. IR has proven they can also be one of the top brands for cordless tools. The new 14.4v IQv kit includes 2 batteries, 3/8” impact, drill, charger and LED flash light which will run for hours. Price on the kit is $398, for a limited time that also includes a free 3/8” socket set.  

7. 36614-02 Bosch 14.4v Drill (free battery)
Recently Bosch introduced all new 18v and 14.4v lithium tools. These have all been really great performers but the 14.4v Compact Tough drill for $199 has been a real standout light weight drill/driver. These new tools are high quality, made in Switzerland and come with a free 3rd battery (mail-in rebate) until December 31st. If you are looking at light weight compact drills it would be hard to look past this one.

8. DSB5013P Bosch Dare Devil 13 Piece Kit
Another great stocking stuffer are the new DareDevil spade bits. Checkout our YouTube video for details on why these spade bits are so different. Any of the kits would make great gifts for woodworkers, DIYers or anyone who owns a drill. Price for the 13 piece kit with case is only $31.

9. 23578 Ridgid Laser Thermometer
This is one of my favorite new gadgets for the year. Point and shoot for the temperature of any surface. Obviously this is a great tool for plumbing, electrical or HVAC guys but there are all sorts of practical uses for anyone. Just recently I used one to get ready for winter around my house. Point and shoot at all the windows and doors and you will get a great idea where you are losing all your heat. Probably would pay for itself in the first 15 minutes you get it out of the box in December. Price for the IR-100 is $117 at Ohio Power Tool.  

10. 6300-01 Dremel Multi-Max
I would say the Dremel Multi-Max is the #1 holiday gift for the tool lover in 2008. The price point is perfect at $99 and it is quickly becoming the most popular oscillating tool in the market. The kit includes the basics to get started but the great part is their accessories are very inexpensive with additional accessories expected in early 2009.

Tent Sale & Tool Expo – October 22nd

For those of you that might be in or around Columbus, Ohio on Wednesday, October 22nd I would like to invite you to Ohio Power Tool for the Annual Tent Sale & Tool Expo. This year it’s a little later than usual so it would correspond with the launch of so many new lines of tools including: Milwaukee M12, Milwaukee M18, Bosch 12V Max, Bosch 18V Lithium, Ridgid Explorer & New Seesnakes, plus many other exciting product. All of these new tools will be at the show ready for you to demo, so if you want to try out the new Dremel Multi-Max or anything else come on down. Each vendor will be there in full force including the Bosch Big Blue Trailer. Milwaukee, Ingersoll Rand, Ridgid, Chicago Pneumatic, Hougen, Power Team and many others will have tents and tables set up as well. The event runs from 10:00am – 5:00pm or when people finally leave.

This is a great event for any one buying tools or just wanting to test out the new tools! Ohio Power Tool, already known for low internet competitive pricing, really blows it out for the tent sale. Lots of existing products are discounted for that day in addition to overall discounts given on all in-store orders. On top of the Ohio Power Tool discounts the vendors on hand have even more discounts in the form of promotions, instant rebates, free tools, tool trade-ins, etc. For instance, Bosch is offering $75 trade-in on any 18 volt, working or not, to upgrade to their new 18v lithium. That would put the new Bosch 18V compact drill at $129 and on top of that you would still get off an additional discount from Ohio Power Tool.

I’m sounding like a used car salesman now but it is definitely worth checking out if you want to get some really good deals on power tools or just get your hands on some of the new tools.

The Ingersoll Rand IQv Cordless power tool line has found a serious following among the automotive crowds and many others. These tools are engineered for use in professional shop and manufacturing facilities. The whole system is very intelligently designed with cheaper NiCd and Lithium batteries that work with each voltage of tools, all which share the single charger and flashlight that work with all of them.  

The IQv charger automatically detects battery voltage and chemistry and chooses the correct charge algorithm. By reading the battery, the charger can optimize its charge to improve performance and longevity. The chargers renew feature deep cycle restores the battery to like-new condition and calibrates onboard battery electronics. For nickel-cadmium batteries, the renew feature eliminates memory effect, extending the usable battery life up to five times and significantly decreasing the number of replacement batteries over the life of the tool.   

Previously these tools could only be purchase individually or with a single battery, charger and bag. The new Ingersoll Rand IQv Kit IQv144K however is much more robust. The kit includes the W150 3/8” impact, D550 drill, TL10 flashlight, 2 14.4V lithium ion batteries, BC10 universal charger and an Ingersoll Rand tool bag.
