Frequently Asked Questions

How does the automatic two-speed function work on certain RAD torque wrenches?

The automatic 2-speed function works on centrifugal force and spring activation caused by increased rotation resistance of the bolt.

Can I loosen bolts with RAD tools?

Yes you can loosen bolts with a RAD torque wrench. Make sure you have 50% or more extra capacity than what was required to tighten the bolt.

How much torque do I need to tighten a bolt?

This depends on a number of factors such as: bolt grade, bolt lubrication and desired clamp load.


Back to Index

How often do RAD torque wrenches need to be calibrated?

Normally gear reduction torque wrenches are calibrated annually or every 10.000 cycles, whichever comes first.

How long do the batteries last on a B-RAD torque wrench?

This depends on many factors such as battery capacity, temperature and torque output, but in general you can work continuously when you work with one battery on the charger and one on the torque wrench.

Why do we need a reaction arm on a RAD torque wrench?

You need to use a reaction arm to counter the reaction force caused by the high force generated by the torque wrench.

Does RAD make hydraulic torque wrenches?

No, RAD does not make hydraulic wrenches, only gear reduction torque wrenches.


Back to Index

Do RAD tools help prevent HAVS (Hand Arm Vibration Syndrome)?

Yes, RAD gear reduction torque wrenches prevent HAVS injuries as they cause 88 times less vibration as equivalent impact tools.


Back to Index

Are RAD torque wrenches safe to use?

RAD tools are very safe when used according to the safety instructions which are included with each torque wrench.
