West Boylston, MA - The new 8C ratcheting socket wrench from Lowell Corporation features four sockets that can handle the four most common nut sizes found in utility and construction work. The 1-1/4" x 1-1/16" hex socket is useful for tasks such as tightening heavy hex 3/4" and 5/8" M.J. bolts on clamps and tapping sleeves. The 1-1/8" x 15/16" hex socket can tighten nuts on standard hex 3/4" and 5/8" flange bolts and equipment. Instead of carrying two to four different wrenches, a worker now only needs one. Hi-Vis sockets and handle make it easy to find the wrench in a toolbox or on a work site. The tool's ergonomic grip and light weight of 2.5 lbs. make it easier and less fatiguing to use which also improves worker safety. Too often when tackling a task, a worker will sometimes grab a tool that wasn't designed for the job; injury to both worker, tool, and fastener may result. The 8C minimizes this problem because it gives a worker viable options for four specific applications. Durability is another plus for the 8C. The solid metal sockets grip nuts firmly. The stamped steel handle is 17" long and 1/2" thick. The ratchets have 36 teeth resulting in a 10º handle throw that is especially useful for working in tight spots. Lowell’s unique Bolt-Thru design allows bolts to pass entirely through the wrench head so that nuts can be secured on any threaded length.
