— A good buy on a tool you should have —
Harbor Freight’s 1/2-inch Drive Click Type torque wrench clicks to let the user know a specific torque setting has been reached when tightening a fastener. This type of tool has been around forever, and many UTV parts can’t be properly assembled without one. Even so, many home mechanics get by without torque wrenches because they can be expensive; $85 to over $200 is common. Harbor Freight’s Pittsburgh 1/2-inch Drive Click Type torque wrench is just $19.99 and offers torque settings from 20 to 150 pound-feet with a metric scale, too, making it useful for common jobs from properly tightening wheel lug nuts to cylinder head bolts. Harbor Freight has a wide range of reasonably priced torque wrenches for every application you can think of.
We got interested in a torque wrench when we learned Polaris requires RZR XP 1000 lug nuts to be torqued to 120 pound-feet, and Can-Am specifies 74 pound-feet. That’s a lot, and knowing that guessing at high torque specs could mean broken studs or loose wheels, we decided to use the right tool for the job. Harbor Freight’s Pittsburgh torque wrench uses a common twist-grip torque adjustment system, and it gives a very easy-to-feel and -hear click when the torque setting is reached. The Harbor Freight wrench’s accuracy is certified, and a card confirming its accuracy is included with the tool. The wrench also includes a manual and storage case.
With Harbor Freight’s Pittsburgh 1/2-inch Drive Click Type torque wrench available for $19.95, there’s no reason to guess at proper torque settings and risk damaged parts or an unsafe vehicle.
