KENOSHA, Wis. – December 19, 2008 – Snap-on’s new 3/8” Drive Impact Wrench (MG325) and Flank Drive® impact swivel sockets will be the talk of the bay, the motorcycle shop and the snowmobile repair facility.  In fact, this state-of-the art, multi-faceted tool and Snap-on’s seven-piece swivel socket set and 14-piece deep impact socket set will be causing quite a stir at any facility that repairs vehicles.

“The new Snap-on MG325 3/8” Impact Wrench is twice as strong as previous models so you’ll want to invest in a set of Snap-on impact sockets and extensions featuring our Flank Drive® wrenching system.  They are specifically designed to withstand the torque output of the MG325,” said Rodger Isetts, product manager for Snap-on.  “We have received phenomenal feedback from service technicians who have already tried the MG325 with Snap-on’s Flank Drive® Socket Sets.  They tell us that using them together saves time and increases productivity.  Based on their comments, we expect a lot of interest when they become available in January.”

Snap-on MG325 3/8” Impact Wrench features and benefits include:

  • 425 ft. lbs of bolt breakaway torque.
  • Patented one piece housing construction which means components are aligned with precision accuracy which provides longer tool life.
  • Continuous oil bath lubrication means impact mechanism is always lubricated for less wear and maintenance.
  • Twin hammer impact mechanism means dependable harder hitting blows with less moving parts for longer tool life.
  • Reverse bias motor means the motor has more torque output in reverse. This makes getting stubborn bolts off easier.
  • Comfort cushion trigger button means less strain and stress on the finger which allows the end user to work more comfortably longer.
  • Balanced housing means equal distribution of weight for optimal tool control.
  • Low vibration impact means impact will run smoother with less user fatigue.
  • Anvil stop lock means anvil will stop when trigger is released. This prevents anvil from throwing nuts and sockets.
