The MT2219 features a patent-pending, gear-transmitted design that provides more than 200% more cutting capacity than standard air saws. This product will make your day-to-day job as easy as possible.

One of the most powerful 3/8” ratchets on the market with 130 ft. lbs. of torque, Matco’s Heavy-Duty Ratchet helps you complete jobs fast. Its rapid response, variable speed trigger allows for one finger operation and unmatched control.  Bearings on both sides of the gearing increase durability, tool life and cut down on internal friction allowing the tool to run smoother.

 

MT2816 – LONG BARREL AIR HAMMER

Matco’s Long Barrel Air Hammer cranks out 20% more power over standard air hammers due to its cutting edge air flow design.  Its patented integrated chuck allows you to quickly change chisel blades while working so you can work on more jobs in a shorter period of time. We know that working with a tool for a long period of time can cause strain in your hand(s), which is why Matco’s Air Hammer has an ergonomic handle designed for maximum all day comfort.

It’s time to add efficiency and ease back in to your job with Matco’s Air Tools.
