STOW, Ohio - Matco Tools introduces the MSCX service cart and an 18-volt, 3/8-inch Cordless Impact Wrench Kit.

The design of the MSCX service cart offers16,458 cubic inches of lockable storage capacity with a "barn door"-style door that swings open 270 degrees and can be held with magnets, giving users quick and easy access to tools.

The cart also features quick-release gas pistons that allow the lid to be laid back in seconds for jobs where space is tight. And, the stainless steel lid doubles as a practical, durable work surface. A rubber push handle along with four 5-inch by 2-inch swivel casters, two of which can be unlocked, provide optimal movement making the cart versatile and reliable, the company stated.

Also new to Matco’s lineup is the 18-Volt, 3/8-inch Cordless Impact Wrench Kit, which includes an impact wrench, 4.0 Ah 18-volt lithium battery and a 14.4-volt/18-volt slide type battery charger all within a rugged case. The new 4.0 Ah battery delivers a 33 percent longer runtime than 3.0 Ah batteries, according to Matco. Plus, the new battery capacity indicator reminds the user how long the cordless tool will continue working.

The MCL1838IW 3/8-inch impact wrench boasts a new 18-volt motor that generates up to 230 ft. lbs. of working torque and 325 ft. lbs. of breakaway torque, along with a heavy-duty clutch mechanism that provides high output reversing torque. The cordless wrench also features a variable speed trigger, comfortable ergonomic handle and balanced design to make use as easy as possible, the company said.
