Unmatched power with a compact design 18 December 2023

With the aim of increasing productivity and ease of work for professional technicians, Snap-on has designed, engineered and manufactured the most powerful addition to its MonsterLithium product line-up yet, with the new CT9038 18V 3/8 inch Drive MonsterLithium Cordless Impact Wrench.

This powerhouse tool delivers 525 ft-lb of bolt breakaway torque and 275 ft-lb of working torque – with a design that minimises vibration and is manufactured to handle even the most challenging applications. Its five inch compact body ensures unmatched power and access in tight spaces. Three torque settings can be set independently in forward or reverse for the right amount of power for any job, and its variable-speed trigger provides enhanced control. The drive train is composed of precisely aligned high alloy steel components contained within a metallic case, providing high durability. Its reinforced nylon housing is uniquely designed to support the frameless, brushless motor ensuring longer tool life.

Safety and convenience are also prioritised with a 100lm LED light and an integrated brake that halts the anvil once the trigger is released to prevent thrown sockets or fasteners. This impact wrench has user comfort in mind with a cushion grip handle. The motor controller is also sealed to protect the tool’s circuitry from shop environments.
