Good luck on your decision.

Overall, I think the Craftsman is a better made tool as the fit and finish was more professional shop like - rather than home mechanic like.

It comes in a nice plastic case and includes an extension and an adapter for smaller sockets.

I'm not a professional mechanic, but I stayed at a Holiday Inn Express.

I recently decided to take on more of my vehicle's maintenance partly to save money (eventually), and partly because I enjoy it as a hobby unto itself. To me, spending $200 on tools is a lot more fun than paying the mechanic $300 for a job I can do. I get more tools (always a good thing), and I become just a tiny bit more self-sufficient.

I had a sagging rear-end (not me, the truck) and needed to take apart most of the rear suspension to reinforce the springs and replace the shock absorbers. My repair manual listed all these crazy numbers for how tight the fasteners should be. So, while buying all my parts, I pulled the trigger on this torque wrench.

I did a lot of research online. It was mostly about ponies, but what I also read about torque wrenches seemed to conclude that this was the wrench for me. I needed something to handle the larger nuts on the U-bolts that had to be tightened in stages up to 90 foot-pounds (or, roughly, 0.000529789 mile-slugs [on earth]). This wrench performed excellently.

Despite the fact that the ratchet head is enclosed in some cheap-looking stamped sheet casing, it's actually very robust. I still wouldn't drop it on the concrete floor, but that's more because I don't want to affect its accuracy. It's heavy, and feels solid enough to double as a self-defense weapon for when you're attacked in your garage. Wipe off the blood, and it'll be ready to torque many more nuts.

The store brand torque wrenches at my local Depot for Home maintenance equipment were nearly triple the cost of this guy, and felt a lot cheaper.

I'm not a professional mechanic but I am pretty handy around the garage and do a lot of my own car maintenance. I was looking around for a decent torque wrench that'll go up to 120 - 150 foot lbs and was deciding between the Craftsman and the Gorilla Auto wrenches. I have always been a Craftsman tool fan and had purchased the Craftsman Microtork 20-150 ft/lbs wrench a week earlier. It didn't perform to my satisfaction at all. The click was so weak you often didn't hear it and I didn't think the accuracy of the Craftsman was inline with the torque settings I tried. 20 ft/lbs required a lot of power before it clicked. There was virtually no difference between 20, 50 and 90 ft/lbs. The click stop felt really sloppy - as if there was something wrong in the ratcheting components. So I returned the Craftsman and purchased the Gorilla.

I ordered it on Saturday and it arrived on Tuesday - very fast shipping (even though it was free shipping). I tested the Gorilla at 20, 50 and 90 ft/lbs and the click was so much more detectable and the ratchet action was much more positive than the Craftsman. The weight settings was also much more inline with what I thought was the right amount of torquing too. Overall, I think the Craftsman is a better made tool as the fit and finish was more professional shop like - rather than home mechanic like. The finish of the Gorilla is chromed and it's fairly rugged with decent knurling and markings, but not up to the finish quality of the Craftsman.

The Gorilla is a pretty long wrench so if you work under your car a lot you may need some good clearance for the wrench to work well. The 1/2 extension is a nice addition and so is the 3/8 to 1/2 converter. These will definitely come in handy with 1/3 sockets.

This torque wrench looks and performs like a well-made, heavy-duty torque wrench.

Torque range for this wrench is 20-150 Ft-lbs.

The only issue I have with this torque wrench is with its lock nut. Actually the lock nut is about a 1/2 inch long, cylindrical protrusion on the bottom of the wrench which has to be turned to unlock it to set the desired torque setting and then turned the other way to lock in the torque setting. Problem is that if you are working in greasy conditions like working on the car, it is difficult to get a grip on the lock nut to unlock/lock it.

The problem is easily fixed because the lock nut comes with a hole drilled right through it and a screwdriver with a small enough diameter can be inserted through the hole and easily turned to unlock/lock the lock nut. Later I found out that either a 1/8" or a 4mm hex-key/L-key/Allen-wrench works even better.

I've used this for about 3 months to do several things, like:

*tighten lug nuts on my GM Sierra 2500 HD
*Tighten lug nuts on my fifth wheel and Toyota Siena
*Remove drain and fill plugs on the Sierra differentials and transfer case

It works great, has a rugged click to it when you've reached the set pounds of torque, and has a good click in the ratcheting mechanism as well. The pounds setting is easy to adjust, it has a great grip on it, and feels durable. It's a ½" ratchet but has a 3/8" adapter/ extension as well (usual size for ratchets/ sockets) so you can use it with all your sockets. If you need a ¼" ratchet, this may me overkill. I use it as a breaker bar and it seems plenty tough for that (see uses above). The reverse and forward selector mechanism works great. The case is compact and holds everything together. You will need your own socket set to get the correct lug nut socket however. Only thing to consider is the handle is really long (maybe 18") and was a banging into the ground while I was removing the drain & fill plugs under the vehicle but still got the job done. Not a defect in the wrench.

Price seems reasonable when comparing.
