Chicago Pneumatic has introduced low-vibration hammers that are ideal for everyday general mechanic, bodyshop and MRO (maintenance, repair and operations) applications.
There are two versions – CP7160 and CP7165 – that are comfortable to use and powerful, so operators can get their jobs done quickly and efficiently, and reduce the risk of long-term injury.
The hammer is designed with an air cushion, which reduces vibrations to just 4.37 m/s2 for the CP7160 and 3.26 m/s2 for the CP7165. The hammer also provides great handling and is well balanced, since the handle is not positioned right at the back of the tool, easily resting in the operator’s hand. As a result, it is more comfortable to use than other tools in its class, reducing fatigue and making it easy to use. The back of the tool is covered by a rubber grip to prevent the hammer from slipping when it is in an operator’s hands, even if they are dirty or oily. The tool delivers eight Joules for the CP7610 and 11 Joules for the CP7165, and the user can easily choose the required power for the application thanks to an adjuster.
Furthermore, the hammer is lightweight and durable due to an aluminium motor housing and metal damped valve, meaning that the tool can withstand the typical conditions of a workshop, providing reliable use over the course of its service life.
