Powerful, Durable, Fast - Improvements Make Cordless Series Better Than Ever

Sleeker, sturdier and stronger; the next generation of Snap-on 7850 series cordless tools are sure to make technicians more productive and efficient in the service bay.  Both the Snap-on® 1/2-inch drive cordless impact wrench (CT7850) and the cordless hammer drill (CDR7850H) have been re-designed to maximize performance, increase runtime and provide more durability over the life of the tools.

“The Snap-on 7850 series of cordless tools are better than they ever have been with features that make them more productive and powerful,” said Rodger Isetts, product manager for Snap-on. “In addition, the 7850 cordless series features an 18-volt lithium battery and a state-of-the-art microprocessor-controlled trigger switch to extend both battery life and tool life.”
