The new Snap-on ATECH2FR125B 3/8-in. Drive TechAngle Flex-Head Torque Wrench provides the same benefits as fellow ATECH series tools, but with more range, strength and accuracy, the company says.
With a 5-125 ft.-lb. working range, technicians are able to use this torque wrench for a wider array of applications including passenger tires, engines and suspensions. The tool’s strong yoke is engineered for a higher torque load with added steel mass, as well as an extremely tight tolerance ratchet tang-to-yoke fit. Without compromising on the torsional strength, the heavy-duty yoke also provides technicians a smooth indexing movement of the ratchet head up to 15 degrees, and the smaller yoke-to-rachet gap reduces potential pinch points for increased safety, Snap-on says.
The company says the ATECH2FR125B becomes even more precise while in a flexed position (from 0 to 15 degrees) due to the patent-pending Snap-on Multi Axis Gyro Compensation (MAG COMP) that allows the tool to automatically measure its position and compensate for the change of length. The 80-tooth ratchet offers a shorter, 4.5-degree arc making it easy for technicians to work on fasteners in confined spaces and meets or exceeds the ASME B107.300-2010 (B107.28) standard. The wrench operates on AA batteries and comes with a two-year warranty.
Features of the ATECH2FR125B include four alert modes (LED, LCD, vibratory and audible); six scales for precise measurements in both metric/SI and imperial units, plus angle; 10 presets for easily recalling commonly-used torque specifications; cycle counter to help techs keep their tool calibrated; torque then angle option for bolts that require specific applications of both measurements; battery level indicator; low-profile buttons; power interruption technology; and dual progressive LEDs and backlit LCD screen.
