The new Snap-on PT650 impact wrench is a hard-handled version of its the PT850. Following in the footsteps of the PT850, the PT650 features a new housing, nose piece, trigger and improved internals. Cold forged hammers and machined frame and anvil create tighter tolerances and load distribution producing harder-hitting blows and greater durability, according to an announcement.
The PT650 features one-handed forward and reverse selection, as well as a large, simple, four-position power level adjustment. It is engineered to be comfortable to use all day.
“This tool weighs only 4.3 lb. and is the perfect solution for automotive and industrial work on axle and lug nuts; suspension, drivetrain and transmission repairs; seat bolts and front-end work,” says Rodger Isetts, a Snap-on Tools product manager. “The PT650 is an excellent impact wrench for general use in a technician’s collection. It has an improved center of gravity over the MG725 1/2 in. drive air impact wrench and is better balanced in the user’s hand with carefully positioned controls and a well-placed regulator for easy adjustment.”
Improved materials used in the PT650 provide less porous, more solid components to deliver bolt breakaway torque of 950 ft. lb., torque reverse of 650 ft. lb., torque forward of 480 ft. lb., RPM free speed of 5,600, and the ability to strike 1,100 blows per minute.
