Snap-On CT9010 Cordless 3/8-inch Impact Wrench Kit

Snap-On Impact Wrench Provides High Performance for the Toughest Applications

The 4.9-lb Snap-On CT9010 18V cordless 3/8″ impact wrench aims at taking on light- to medium-duty applications where you still need plenty of nut-busting power.

Snap-On Cordless Impact Wrench: The Big Deal

The Snap-On cordless impact wrench features a 3/8-inch friction ring anvil and brushless motor. It provides 240 ft-lbs of fastening torque and 325 ft-lbs of bolt breakaway torque.

The tool features three variable Forward and Reverse torque settings. These let you vary the speed and torque to adapt to various fastening applications. Through Snap-On’s testing of the tool, they’ve found that the motor can work at a no-load speed of 1,850 rpm and provide up to 3,500 bpm. Snap-On also designed the cordless 3/8-inch impact wrench with a built-in brake that quickly stops the anvil when you let off the trigger. A 100-lumen LED worklight lights up your project, even in dimly lit areas.

Snap-On has certainly focused on size and weight with this tool. While their 1/2-inch CT9075 Series impact wrenches push 8.7 pounds with battery, this tool weighs just under 5 lbs. It also has a more compact housing to help you maneuver into tight and cramped spaces. At just 6.7 inches, it also shaves roughly 3-inches from the 1/2-inch CT9075WB (but matches the 1/2-inch CT8815BPK2).


You can pick up the Snap-On CT9010 Impact Wrench Kit from your local Snap-On truck or by visiting the Snapon.com website. The kit includes the tool, two 18V 5.0Ah batteries, and a charger. It retails for $799.99, and Snap-on warranties all of the pieces for 2 years.

snap on is like festool for mechanics. absolutely brilliant, but a HORRENDOUS value for money (this is coming from a guy that uses festool on a very regular basis), but at the same time, you’ll never need to replace it
