PCL launches two nifty air tools

PCL Tool copy

PCL has launched two nifty new air tools that provide maximum performance for minimum outlay and help you get into the tightest spots too. Both are the most powerful in their class, and are ideal for small engine repair, transmission work and overall automotive service work.

The 1/2″ Prestige ‘Stubby’ Impact Wrench combines the same high power of a standard size impact wrench in a small, lightweight and compact housing.

With 678Nm max torque, this tool will perform where others of this size can’t, while still allowing you to access areas you normally wouldn’t be able to reach. The wrench measures just 108.5mm and features an energy efficient motor for maximum performance and long life. This little wrench is easy to operate, with a single handed forward and reverse switch handle exhaust which directs air away from the work area and operator.PCL Tool1 copy
Next in line is PCL’s new 3/8″ Prestige Lump hammer ratchet which combines an impact wrench with an air ratchet. With 258 Nm of torque and long reach access to tight spaces, you can now use the ‘lumphammer’ for a large number of applications where a standard ratchet simply will not do.

Innovative design has created an ergonomic warm grip handle design for extra comfort, which coupled with a lightweight body and excellent weight distribution makes operating this lumphammer with jumbo hammer impact a breeze.

PCL’s range of Prestige tools are manufactured from lightweight magnesium and offer the ultimate in performance for the serious professional user, incorporating market leading technology designed to make the job faster and easier. Providing higher performance, most feature low vibration and low noise with ergonomic grip.

PCL’s complete and extensive range of air tools includes everything from impact wrenches and ratchets, to sanders and grinding tools, all designed to meet the rigorous needs of a modern workshop.
