New ½" telescopic ratchet
Powerful and with adjustable length
With the 516 telescopic ratchet, Stahlwille is expanding its ½" ratchet range. This new tool "Made in Germany" was developed primarily for use in the commercial vehicle sector as well as for bolt-tightening operations on industrial installations. In these environments, fasteners often have to be tightened with higher forces. The new ratchet complies with DIN 3122/ISO 3315 and is dimensioned for torques up to 512 Nm. It is therefore recommended for professional users who frequently work with high torques. Thanks to the telescopic shaft, it is particularly versatile – even in difficult spaces with limited room to move.
The shaft of the ratchet can be adjusted in five steps from 410 mm to 630 mm, where each step is 55 mm. The variable length opens up additional application possibilities where the use of a ratchet is not normally possible or only possible to a limited extent. The extension action is fast and safe thanks to the slide bearings and endstop protection. The length is conveniently adjusted by means of a rocker at the front end of the shaft.
The ratchet drive is tested in compliance with DIN, has 36 teeth and transmits high tightening forces of up to 512 Nm absolutely reliably to screws and nuts. The change-over switch for right and left rotation is located on the top of the head in a slight recess. Accidental change-over, for example when coming into contact with components, is thus prevented.
The ½" square drive can be fitted with all the usual sockets and bits. The two-component convex handle of the 516 telescopic ratchet fits snugly in the hand – an important prerequisite for longer, fatigue-free work. The materials used provide a secure grip even when hands are dirty or wet. In addition, the grip components are resistant to oils, greases, brake fluids and Skydrol, a hydraulic fluid used in the aviation sector.
