PneuTorque PTME-72 Series

The PTME-72 series of tools was designed to meet the needs of the commercial vehicle wheel market.

The integrated reaction foot is designed specifically to reach recessed wheel bolts and the 72mm diameter gearbox is selected to cope with the high frequency of use demanded by busy tyre shops.

  • Fast - 1000 N·m version has a free speed of 140 rpm for rapid bolt run-down time.
  • Light weight, for ease of handling.
  • Extended reaction is ideal for reaching recessed nuts.
  • When under load is quite - less than 85 db(A).
  • Non-impacting - low vibration levels mean the tools are safe and comfortable to use.
  • Square drive can be quickly replaced.
  • 'Soft Start' trigger control aids socket location - allows gradual and safe reaction location.
  • Gearbox rotates independently from the handle meaning reaction forces are not transmitted back to the operator.
