The latest addition to Sykes-Pickavant’s popular torque wrench range is the new generation industrial torque wrench available in two models – the 80240000 and 80250000 – which can be split into two parts for easy and economic storage and transportation.
The unmistakeable torque signal system featured on Sykes-Pickavant’s heavy-duty ‘Motorq’ range is also utilised for the new models, offering a clearer indication when torque is met to reduce the possibility of over torquing. The push-through ratchet provides two directional torquing, doubling the tool’s possible applications. Operation is comfortable due to the ergonomic handle, which guides the user’s hand into place and improving ease of use.
Torque control is increased with an accurate scale that can be easily adjusted using the setting tool included with the wrench. This scale is shielded from dust, dirt and spray, allowing for easy reading. The robust construction of the tool gives accurate results to ±4% even in arduous working conditions, supported by the Declaration of Conformance, which meets the requirements of ISO 6789-1:2017 – included with the torque wrench.
The 80240000 model covers 200Nm – 800Nm / 150lbf.ft – 600lbf.ft and the 80250000 model covers 300Nm – 1,000Nm / 200lbf.ft – 750lbf.ft, both with a ¾ inch square drive.
