Big Bolts Loosen Faster With New Impact Wrench From Snap-on Tools Company


KENOSHA, Wis., July 24, 2003 - Perfect for loosening bolts on large-wheeled vehicles, the new AT126 Blue-Point® Brand 3/4-inch Square Drive Impact Wrench from Snap-on Tools Company offers automotive technicians a high-speed solution for even the toughest tasks.

The new impact wrench offers users 5,500 RPM of maximum free speed and a jumbo single hammer mechanism for loosening and tightening tasks. While the tool weighs in at just 12.32 pounds, it packs enough power to deliver 1,000 blows per minute and achieve a maximum torque of 1,100 foot pounds.

Tool users who care about the performance of their impact wrench being as good during its 300th use as it was during its first use will be happy to know that the AT126 Impact Wrench offers two great features for prolonged life and continued optimal performance. First, a built-in grease lubrication system helps keep the wrench's internal parts functioning smoothly - allowing technicians to master repeated tasks with the same quickness use after use. Second, the wrench offers users a handle defused exhaust to direct the tool's air away from the job area. This added benefit helps technicians focus more effectively on their tasks.

The AT126 Blue-Point® Brand 3/4-inch Square Drive Impact Wrench measures 8.42 inches in length, accepts compressed air at pressures up to 90 PSIG and consumes an average of 5.3 cubic feet of air per minute under load.
