Chicago Pneumatic’s new CP7732 impact wrench is a super-compact stubby 1/2″ air impact wrench that looks great for working in cramped spaces, such as engine bays.
The new impact delivers up to 450 ft-lbs (5400 in-lbs) of torque, weighs 2.9 lbs, and measures just 4.4″ in length. It also features a one-handed trigger, 3 torque settings, and a forward/reverse switch.
Chicago Pneumatic says that, since this tool is shorter than your hand, anywhere your hand can fit, so can the CP7732! Another selling point is how the impact can easily move between right and left hands.

$125 is decent for what you get, and is about the same price point as other leading 1/2″ impact wrenches.
