Snap-on torque wrench delivers more muscle in less space

The new Snap-on® ATECH2FR125B 3/8" Drive TechAngle® Flex-Head Torque Wrench provides the same benefits as fellow ATECH series tools, but with more range, strength, and accuracy.
 

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.

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 intuitive 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;
  • Dual progressive LEDs and backlight LCD screen provide greater visibility in dark, cramped work spaces
