Chicago Pneumatic Simplifies Tire Changing with New 1" Impact Wrench

Tagged under:

Chicago Pneumatic makes lighter work of heavy vehicle tire service with the CP7782TL-6, the first and only 1” torque limited impact wrench. This purpose-built tool is designed to avoid bolt over-tightening, and increase operator efficiency and convenience. The CP7782TL-6 is part of the Chicago Pneumatic vehicle service tool lineup that will be on display at the 2018 SEMA Show.

The “torque limited” function of the CP7782TL-6 enables efficient and effective torque level control, particularly for truck, bus, and heavy vehicle tire installations where multi-step torquing solutions are required. The tool’s forward mode limits torque to approximately 370 ft.lbs (500 Nm) allowing the operator to tighten bolts with confidence. When finished with a property calibrated manual torque wrench, over-tightening is eliminated. For hard-to-remove overtightened bolts, the CP7782TL-6 delivers up to 1920 ft.lbs (2600 Nm) of nut-busting torque.

Because your phone mount should be as rugged as you are. Meet the Mobnetic Pro 90.

The Mobnetic Pro 90 is great for quickly mounting your device or smartphone to your vehicle, toolbox, or anywhere else you can imagine. It consists of two 90 lb. pull force Neodymium magnets with an easy-adjust ball housing. Just put the shield shaped steel plate on the back of your phone, and mount away. Full product includes the shield plate, and mounting discs for almost any surface.

DU-HA with Lockable Lid

DU-HA, Inc of Fergus Falls, MN has released their underseat storage unit with lockable lid for the 14-18 GM/Chevy LD and 15-18 HD Crew Cab.

We've all tried to store the gear we keep in our truck - in the console, on the seat, or thrown under the back seat. Yet, we never seem to have enough storage room and we are never fully organized. That's why we made the original truck storage - the DU-HA. The DU-HA allows you to store your guns, gear, power tools, tie down straps, and so much more under the back seat of your truck. Now, with the new lockable lid, your gear and valuables will be even more secure. The new DU-HA's with lockable lids are still manufactured from heavy duty polyethylene, include organizer/gun rack set, and are made in the USA.

The DU-HA with lid retails for $349.95 and includes a lifetime warranty. For more information or to find a dealer near you, visit, or call 1-866-306-3842.

New Tool by AME Removes Locked Rims During Tire Service

Brooksville, Fla.-July 31, 2018. AME International, a leading provider of tire service equipment and tools based out of Florida, proudly introduces a new wheel puller tool, the RIMWIT, designed to remove locked rims on commercial truck tires. The RIMWIT is the easiest and fastest way to loosen stubborn rims without fear of damaging the tire sidewall and rim.

Manufactured to fit all standard semi-truck rims; both aluminum or steel, the RIMWIT is a safe and efficient way to separate the rim from the wheel assembly. Fleet technicians typically remedy a stuck wheel/rim by hitting it with a 20-lb sledge hammer, potentially causing damage to the tire and rim. The RIMWIT locks onto the rim and using a 1” impact wrench, tightens drive nuts to release the seized rim.
