    I was just looking for a higher range torque wrench. I have a Kobalt that tops out at 100 that has served me well. For the price this one is worth a shot.

    I値l stick with my USA made Snap On. No sense in taking chances with something as important as torque.

    I totally understand where you're coming from especially when it comes to inch pounds. On big bolts that require higher torque, I personally don't see it as being as big of an issue. Be nice if everyone could afford a Snap On but I know most have a hard time justifying it. For me, I'd rather see guys working on their Jeep and to the best of their ability than not. But then, that's just me.

    For $400.00, why not?

    You must have spare cash to burn . I definitely get some of the snapon stuff and have owned tons of their stuff, but in many areas, they are grossly overpriced. As important as torque is, I think if cheaper brand torque wrenches had a high rate of failure, that information would be widely known. I don't feel that I need to pay Snapon prices for a torque wrench.

    I had this same torque wrench for about 2 days and wound up returning it.

    The torque values were significantly off compared to my calibrated wrench with a similar range at work. At 200lb/ft, I was getting about 170lb/ft. The value differences were all over the place, too. 150 was 145, 250 was 240... If the differences were similiar across the range, I would have adjusted the end of the handle until I got close, but the adjustment made it even worse.

    Maybe I was unlucky and received one bad apple. Amazon offered to make right by sending another one, but I was in a time crunch and wound up borrowing from a friend. So, I opted for the refund. I'll most likely order again in hopes for a winner the next time I need it.

    Obviously if someone already owns a torque wrench they are happy with they wouldn稚 buy this. Unless they want a spare for their trail kit of course. And this is an excellent option for that and the home user who is building their tool collection.

    A new TechAngle 1/2 drive Snap On is 600 bucks. Forgetting about the price it is also waaay overkill for just about everything a DIY弾r would need. Having to remember to keep new batteries and remove them could be problematic also if you don稚 use it daily.

    No complaints!

    Bought a couple of years ago and have no complaints. Actually the opposite. It has served me well. Highly recommend.

    I owned that digital Snap-On torque wrench and I would have been far better off with the Tecton one. The angle counter was nice but it frequently lost its calibration. I sent it in for warranty 3 times in 6 months before I told my dealer where he could stick it. I now use an older Snap-on clicker with a quick thumb screw adjustment that I absolutely love. Setting the desired torque only takes a second.
