New Snap-on cordless impact wrench exceeds customer expectations
Snap-on Tools Australia and New Zealand introduces a new range of impact wrenches that combine a high torque output with an ergonomic design.
The new Snap-on 18 Volt Ni-Cad 3/8 drive impact wrench (CTA4418) features a slender design, balanced ergonomic control and 250 ft. lbs. of bolt breakaway torque to meet the requirements of every service technician.
Adam Scott, Product Manager for Snap-on Tools Australia and New Zealand explains that the Snap-on CTA4418 offers excellent torque output for the technician to handle tough applications including seized and rusted nuts. Additionally, the ergonomic design and soft grip handles allow them to use the impact wrench all day without getting fatigued.
Powered by Snap-on’s 18V Ni-Cad batteries, the cordless design of the Snap-on CTA4418 impact wrench gives sufficient flexibility to the user without tripping over an air hose; the user is additionally assisted by an integrated 0.5 watt LED light to see clearly into hidden corners.
Adam adds that the CTA4418 can be used in hard yards as it has been tested successfully at 6-feet high drops thanks to the housing being made from high strength, impact modified 30% glass filled Nylon 6 material. A micro-controlled digital switch provides variable speeds, protecting the CTA4418 from overheating during extended use.
