Low Profile Hydraulic Torque Wrenches

Our low profile hydraulic torque wrenches have an open hexagon to fit directly onto the nut or bolt head. We have designed low profile hydraulic torque wrenches to be suitable for use on applications with limited overhead access or with fasteners having excessive thread protrusion. They are easy to handle and position due to the light titanium alloy construction, reversible ratchet system, and swivel 360 degree connections.

C-RAD Pneumatic Torque Tool

C-RAD pneumatic torque tools offer hard hitting performance in the toughest conditions, rapidly tightening or removing threaded fasteners, without impact or vibration exposure to operators. Our C-RAD pneumatic torque tools use a unique silencer adaptation to reduce noise outputs to remove the need for hearing protection. Our tools are small, light, and portable yet strong and built to last.

Offset Gearbox with C-RAD Pneumatic Torque Wrench

 We have designed the offset gearbox with C-RAD pneumatic torque wrench for high speed tightening and untightening of fasteners with overhead obstructions. Our offset gearbox with C-RAD pneumatic torque wrench efficiently transfers power directly from tool to fasteners at an impressive 2.6:1 multiplication.

Hands Free Backing Tool

We supply hands free backing tools so you don't need an operator to hold a conventional flogger. Our hands free backing tools are safer than traditional methods of bracing the nut as they minimise risk of trapped hands and fingers. They feature:

  • Adjustable ball detent to hold nut brace to nut
  • Single cast construction for strength
  • Tethering ring to stop brace from falling
  • Bi-hexagon head to aid location
  • Imperial sizes to suit flange bolts
