Removing wheels from haul trucks, diggers or loaders, requires the use of heavy tools and strong operators.
That is until now. Lewis Australia has developed the Lightening Bolt, which is an ultra-lightweight tool extension.
These extensions are being used by tyre fitters and maintenance workshops all over the world. They attach to existing RAD or NORBAR torque tools.
They only weigh as little as 5kg to 16kg.
They have a torque range of 1,200Nm to 8,135Nm. (885ft/lb to 6,000ft/lb).
The benefits include:
- Up to 75% lighter than existing standard extensions
- Easier to operate
- Removes hands from pinch points
- Reduces back and shoulder injuries
- Increase productivity
- Can be used in pits for re-torques
Lewis Australia are constantly adding to the product range, give them a call to see if they have a tool to suit your haul truck or loader.
