One of the most common injuries in industrial bolting is finger pinching with the reaction arm or the backup wrench. HYTORC Backup Wrenches reduce the risk of injury by providing a convenient hands-free solution to stop the counter-nut from turning. Magnetic locks allow the magnetic backup wrench to be quickly installed and held in place against the side of a steel application. With hydraulic backup wrenches the tension is released hydraulically, which means no hammer or open-end spanner is needed.
- Both hydraulic and magnetic backup wrenches available
- Magnetic backup wrenches are fitted with a suspension eye so that they can be used in combination with a safety cord.
- A wide range of interchangeable ratchet links from 27 mm to 80 mm can be used with the hydraulic back-up wrench
