Chicago Pneumatic will introduce several new products to its range of efficient, powerful and reliable vehicle service tools at SEMA 2017. The company is also giving people a chance to win a Baja off-road UTV experience in Mexico.

Launches at the show will include: the new CP8849 cordless impact wrench with four selectable forward positions; Chicago Pneumatic cordless angle grinders, and Chicago Pneumatic Vehicle Service composite drills.

The CP8849 is a cordless impact wrench that feaures a brushless motor. The CP8849 also offers four selectable forward positions, two shut-off ones and one reverse position. Weighing in at 6.94 lbs. (3.15 Kg), Chicago Pneumatic’s latest compact and highly efficient cordless impact wrench delivers an impressive 885 ft.lbs. / 1200 Nm of torque. This represents a 12% increase in power over the previous model in its class, making it ideal for handling tough nuts and bolts in tire change, general maintenance and MRO applications for light vehicles.

Chicago Pneumatic will also unveil new additions to its range of CP Cordless Angle Grinders, designed to help users achieve a high-quality finish with minimal effort every time. These are equipped with tight handles that are ergonomically designed to optimize the position of the battery and provide maximum comfort for users. Two new 4.5-in. (115 mm) and 5-in. (125 mm) models will be on display, which offer up to 8500 rpm of grinding power. In addition to ensuring maximum material removal, the grinders have been developed with protection of users firmly in mind. For this reason, they are equipped with an adjustable metal guard and safety level. SEMA 2017 will also see Chicago Pneumatic launch three new highly precise Chicago Pneumatic Vehicle Service composite drills, which are available in ¼-in., ⅜-in. and ½-in. straight and angle models.

Visitors to Booth 10104 will also have the chance enter its Baja Run Experience Sweepstake. Winners of the grand prize will receive a 5 day/4-night trip for two to Mexico (Baja, California). This includes a 3-day UTV off-road tour experience with professional UTV driver and owner of MB Motorsports, Marc Burnett in March 2018. The trip includes round-trip air transportation, hotel accommodation and $500 spending money. Three Chicago Pneumatic tool sets, valued between $1,400-$3,500, will also be available as runner-up prizes. Marc Burnett will draw the winners on Booth 10104.
