New 7.5 Inch Impact Wrench for the Tradesman

Read about the high performance and ergonomics of the new Impact Wrench from PORTER-CABLE.

On July 1, 2014, PORTER-CABLE launched the new 7.5 Amp 1/2 Inch Impact Wrench with Hog Ring Anvil, an excellent value option that delivers performance and ergonomics to the tradesmen for a variety of applications across automotive, agriculture, and construction jobsites.

“Tradesmen have expressed the need for performance and ergonomics without the high price tag of similar units on the market,” said Wil Granger, Group Product Manager for PORTER-CABLE. “The Impact Wrench delivers the performance they need at the value they desire.”

This Impact Wrench features a 7.5 Amp motor that delivers 240 ft-lbs of max torque* for heavy-duty applications, as well as up to 2,700 impacts-per-minute (IPM) and up to 2,200 revolutions-per-minute (RPM) that offer fast application speeds for optimal productivity. A forward/reverse rocker trigger switch provides an easy transition between fastening and loosening applications. Cast metal gear housing helps dissipate heat buildup for added durability during heavy-duty applications. The Impact Wrench comes with a hog ring anvil which allows for fast and easy accessory changes.

At only 7 pounds, the Impact Wrench is lightweight and compact, helping to limit fatigue and for ease in handling. An ergonomic soft grip handle is comfortable to hold and use during extended applications.

Additional PORTER-CABLE products coming this fall include: two 15 Amp 7-1/4 Inch Heavy-Duty Circular Saws, one with a steel shoe (PC15TCS) and one with a lightweight magnesium shoe (PC15TCSM), 6 Amp Variable Speed Orbital Jigsaw (PCE345), and a 14 Inch Chop Saw (PCE700). Each product in the PORTER-CABLE corded lineup provides the performance required by the tradesman whether he’s in his shop, on site, or even working on the farm.
