Product Description

Product Description

ELE TRQ WR 1/2"DR 25-250 FT LB

Amazon.com

Ideal for work on aftermarket parts or when you don't have a service manual at hand, the GearWrench 1/2-inch drive electronic torque wrench's breakaway torque feature measures the maximum amount of torque needed to remove an already installed fastener. The backlit LCD screen makes reading torque values quick and easy, and it's simple to set targets and presets -- a buzzer with red, yellow and green lights alert you when a target is reached. It also converts foot-pound, inch-pound, and Nm at the touch of a button. The thin-profile, high-strength teardrop head allows for easy access and it features a 60-tooth gear with a 6-degree ratcheting arc. The knurled aluminum grip resists slippage, while the sealed design guards against dirt infiltration.

A couple of years ago I bought a GearWrench Electronic Torque wrench for my race shop.

http://www.amazon.com/GearWrench-850.../dp/B000NICGXS

The wrench has worked well and has torqued many fasteners. But a couple of months ago it malfunctioned in the middle of a job, at least a year out of warranty. I put it aside and used other wrenches, but finally a few weeks ago I got tired of moving it around the shop and packaged it up and sent it for repair. Basically, I wrote, "If you can fix it for $50 then do so and call me, otherwise toss it."

Today I got the torque wrench back via UPS, 100% fixed with a certificate of calibration with NIST standards. The cost - nothing.

Now that is good customer service. This is the first GearWrench tool I've owned but I'll definitely start buying some GearWrench tools if that is indicative of their support.

Great product and great service.

Ron

Great product, works as advertised. Bought it for use in the R&D facility of our manufacturing company. The only complaint about it has to do with the calibration certificate. The lighted display as well as accuracy of the wrench is excellent and allowed us to perform some breakaway torque measurements that would have been difficult to perform with a standard wrench.

It came with a calibration certificate that contained everything we need to satisfy ISO requirements. However, when looking closely we noticed that it was calibrated with a piece of equipment that was overdue for calibration itself. So we have had to take it out of service until we can have it calibrated ourselves. Had to deduct a couple stars due to the calibration problems.

I own this torque wrench (both in 1/2 as well as 3/8 sizes). I have to say it's one amazing tool. In fact, it's so nice I hate to even use it :-) My girlfriend is always amused when I tell her I want to buy a 2nd one to use, so that I can keep my first one "perfect".

If you have purchased other Gearwrench tools, then you know what a great company they are and what top quality tools they produce. Myself, I prefer Gearwrench to most other brands (snap-on, craftsman, etc.). However, on their torque wrench here, they have really out done themselves. First off, the quality and feel of this wrench is outstanding. It has a beautiful design. The buttons feel great and the handle is nice machined aluminum which is black. You remove a cap at the bottom to insert 4 AAA batteries to power the wrench. I personally never leave the batteries in the wrench; I take them out after each use (just takes a second).

The wrench comes in a high quality and attractive red plastic case. Operation is first class as well. You turn the wrench on with a push of the button. You then can dial up the torque with the arrow keys. You can switch to ft lbs or newton meters with the push of a button. The wrench also has some LED's which light up as you near your target torque. There is also a small buzzer which sounds when you hit your torque settings. Another very nice feature is that the wrench has a "highest torque" reading. When you torque something, the wrench will record the max torque hit, which is a really nice feature.

I grew up using a craftsman torque wrench (which I still use for day to day stuff). I'm talking about the kind where you set the torque and then the wrench will "break" when you hit the torque (it sort of snaps or clicks when the torque is reached).

the Gearwrench name generally is associated with "new and improved" tools, though in this case they dropped the ball. I bought this thinking it would be more accurate and last me for awhile, but two wheel lugs and a few months of downtime later I found out it was a big mistake. this wrench, on at least two occasions, powered up but did not "beep" @ the entered torque, resulting in me breaking wheel lugs on two different customer's cars. when this wrench, after quite a bit of searching to do so, was sent in for this problem I was told that it would take probably 4-8 weeks to get it back. the replacement parts were coming from China (I guess on a slow boat) I was told. So I get it back and within a month the dial face and buttons cracked off (no misuse on my part), so I sent it back in and again was told the parts were coming from China and this would take 6-10 weeks. It took only 3 or 4 weeks, I don't remember exactly...
Now today I'm looking at the broken end of the socket holder (I don't know the technical name for it as I never have broken one off before). Well, this is probably out of warranty but I'll send it back anyways.
I will post an addendum to this when I find out how this transpires. In the meantime, save your money!

This is a fantastic torque wrench. Ergonomics are first-rate. Easy to set and use. Quality rugged construction and a fine looking tool! Complete with NIST traceable certs. I recommend this tool to anyone looking for a high capacity 1/2" torque wrench. John

there are already many reviews on this product, so I won't dwell on repeating those points.

i've had this torque wrench for about 4 years (bought in Aug 2008) now and have used it on numerous projects on my 3 cars and the cars of many many friends and neighbors that I help out. from simple things as lug nuts, to front-end suspension work, oil changes, brake jobs, etc. it has withstood the test of time up until this point. i've also compared it's calibration with my other click-type, beam-type, and a digital torque adapter and it remains very accurate. i do make it a point not to use it at it's max torque rating to avoid exceeding the limit. so i think if you take good care of this, it should work just fine.

however, bare in mind, when I bought this 4 yrs ago, they said "assembled in USA" and I think the current ones no longer say that and are probably produced outside the USA. it may or may not matter, but just so someone reading this review realizes my experience is with the model from 2008 and the current one may be of better or lesser quality.

i will say that over time one thing that concerns me is the use of alkaline batteries in this torque wrench. alkaline batteries tend to leak when they fail and that can damage the internals of this wrench. so, I always make it a point to remove the batteries when I'm done, but this is an extra hassle I rather not have. so, recently, I tried using rechargeable batteries like the eneloops in this torque wrench since those batteries do not leak. they work, but there are a few drawbacks. I think this torque wrench was designed with alkaline batteries in mind and expects 1.5V cells, where as the eneloops have a nominal voltage of 1.2V but can be as high as 1.4V when fully charged.
