“The wrench now delivers up to 850 ft.-lbs. (1150 Nm) torque in reverse, providing the high performance of an air tool, but with the maneuverability of a battery-powered tool, enabling powerful and efficient bolting,” says Yann Pasco, global business development manager – vehicle service at Chicago Pneumatic Tools. “We are constantly innovating to develop high-quality products that deliver higher power, but that are easy to use, in response to customer demand. With this upgraded wrench our customers can benefit from a higher power while enjoying mobility, enabling them to get their job done faster and more comfortably.”

The advanced technology of the 20-Volt/4Ah CP20XP (20-Volt/6Ah will be available in February 2017) Lithium-ion batteries provide the operator with more power and a runtime that is twice that of other conventional products, says the company. 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.

There are five cordless tools in the range – the CP8848 ½” impact wrench, 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, according to the company. 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 CP cordless tools, batteries and chargers come with a three-year limited warranty (this warranty may vary by country). The entire range is available from Chicago Pneumatic Tools authorized distributors and the upgraded CP8848 impact wrench is now available in USA and Korea, and expected to be available worldwide in April 2017.
