The demand for lightweight and maneuverable air tools has driving Chicago Pneumatic to come to the market with ultra-compact butterfly impact wrenches. The ¼” CP7711 and the 3/8” CP7721 both weight less than 1.5 lbs, offer 80 ft. lbs. of torque, and are less than 6” long. These smaller and lighter tools were recently unveiled at the SEMA show, and would likely find a home with any technician who has to perform delicate transmission, engine, or body work.
Despite their small size, these tools are made to be durable with an aluminum housing and single hammer mechanism. Both tools have three adjustable speed/power settings as well as the forward/reverse butterfly lever. The 7721 will be available soon, while the 7711 is scheduled to be shipped at the beginning of December.
