West Boylston, Mass.—A new ratcheting wrench from Lowell Corp. is designed to make it easier for utility workers to open the pentagon security nuts and adjust the 3/4" hexagon tie-down nuts used on pad mount transformers. The tool offers a number of convenience and safety features.

The 101XRS is built for tough duty with a rugged one-piece design that incorporates gear, shaft and sockets. The sturdy ratchet mechanism reverses with the flick of a lever. There are 32 teeth that reduce the throw angle between teeth and make the tool a good choice for working in tight areas. For extra strength, the head of the wrench is secured with a pin which also eliminates wobbling for better torque and reduced wear. Torque has been tested to 90 ft. lbs.

A cushioned grip improves comfort and reduces worker fatigue. Handle length is 7" and the tool weighs 1-1/2 lbs.

The 101XRS Transformer Wrench is guaranteed against defects in material and workmanship for a period of one year from date of delivery.
