I was on the Flea bay and saw a torque multiplier sold there. You put the socket on the tool and turn it. Had a young girl loosening lugs off a truck in the video. Does anyone have any experience with this . Thought it might be handy rather than a long pipe to tighten and loosen lug bolts. I hate to jump on a pipe as I don't have the a** to weight it down

We have a Snap-on 4x torque multiplier. You connect it to a 1/2" torque wrench, it has a pipe that goes against a brace (floor or frame of the equipment you're working on) and put a 3/4" drive socket on the multiplier. Whatever torque you set your wrench for it will multipy4x .IE: 250# wrench setting will equate to 1,000# at the socket. IIRC, it was around $400 off the Snap-on truck

I use a torque dude that is made just for a VW. 23# on the wrench gives you 240# for the gland nut or the rear axial nuts.

This is what we have at work ,It is bit heavy and awkward to use ,but will do the job .

To all the white people of America who honestly feel that the black people have been so mistreated and given such a bad deal in this country I can only suggest that you should move yourself and your family, if you have such, into one of their neighborhoods and do everything necessary to become a integral part of their society, make every effort to blend your lifestyle into theirs, go to their stores, churches, and social gathering places for your needed things in life. send your children to schools where their children are the majority of the enrollment, and where they mostly compose the faculty and administration, get a job where they are in the majority and hold the important management positions...and most importantly of all, go the many prisons where they are being, justly...and unjustly, incarcerated and visit them and see them trying to be rehabilitated, but obviously so suppressed in their efforts that rehabilitation is just impossible. Then, after you have really gotten to know these people...many, many, many of them, from all walks of their lives and societies, and seeing their obvious appreciation of life in America, come forward and make suggestions as to how we white people should go about changing our ideals and society to better accept and integrate these people into our lives so that in a reasonable amount time there will be no more distinctions or differences in how we whites and blacks view each other and the hoped for blending and melding of our races can be completed and we can love and appreciate one another as you must think God intended.

I cannot take credit for these words ,Wish i could

I also have an X4 multiplier. Saves busted bars and ratchets. Mine is a bit heaver...3/4" in and 1" out. 2000 max. torque. They are a bit pricy. Mine also came from Snap- On, many years ago. 5 or 600 bucks. Hate to think what it would cost today

Expect the final torque value on the fastener to be off as much as 10 per cent, because of friction loss in the planetary gearset. They can also be stacked for more output, and I believe that they can also be used to remove fasteners.

I bought an X-4 model with 1/2" input, and 3/4" output when I worked at BT&I to reinstall the rear axle onto the frame of a 8560 4WD, and it worked as advertised, and I never used it again. I wound up trading it back to Snap-On, and he sold it the same day to a mechanic at the JD dealer in De Leon.

I guess I could have used it when replacing the blades on my MX-8 shredder, but I never even thought about it, I just used my Snap-On MG-725 1/2" impact and let it beat on the nuts 10-15 seconds to make sure they are tight.

Nice tool to have when you are stuck along the road with an inner 11-22.5 dead.
We just us an impack wrench driven from the air supply but if you have no air this is the tool.
Believe Harbour Freight has a cheap chinese version.

I just bought mine this winter. I looked at a Snap-on similiar to yours and would have bought it but the torqaue wrench we had was a 1/2" drive. The 3/4 -1" was about 50% more as I recall so really haven't gone up that much in price.
