SEMA Show, Las Vegas
Hundreds of new tools are introduced at the SEMA Show each year, here are some of our favorites-Hello. My name is Mark Fletcher. I'm with Chicago Pneumatic Tool Company . Today, we're gonna talk about the half-inch impact and how it's growing into the new tools of today. The half-inch impact started in roughly the early 40s, late 30s. 734 has been a bread and butter tool for CP for many, many years. This tool weighs about 5 pounds, puts out 400 foot pounds of torque. This has been a standby tool. This is the CP7759Q. It's one of our new half-inch impacts that we're gonna be releasing very soon. It's a half-inch impact. We also have noted in it. It's carbon fiber in the housing to keep the tool nice and light. It uses a magnesium nosecone to protect the clutch and a composite housing. It is nice and light, comfortable for the operator. It has our signature side-to-side forward reverse. It has the variable speed-teasing throttle. It produces 780 foot pounds of torque. It has a controllable torque control on the back so you have low, medium, and high, maximum again in 780 foot pounds . The big difference in this tool is the dBas. Most impacts run between 95 and 105 dBas, and this particular tool runs
