+31 (0)35-5882450 Extreme duty torque wrenches for heavy-duty applications


Ergonomics and safety are very important during the design phase of any new RAD tool. In addition to making the job more ergonomic and safe, we want our tools to be easy to use, powerful, accurate and very reliable. RAD believes safety features should not impede workplace efficiency and speed, but should make workers aware of the risks involved in working with powerful tools. RAD has therefore developed a range of ergonomic and safety enhancing features.

Ergonomic features:

  • RAD’s patented planetary gear reduction drive system delivers 88 times less vibration than impact wrenches. No risk of HAVS injuries (Hand-Arm-Vibration-Syndrome). Pistol grip trigger/control reduces operator fatigue
  • RAD’s low profile reaction arm eliminates all the operational load on the operator.

Tool safety features:


Double Safety Button for all RAD battery torque wrenches (option) Two Handed Safety Switch all E-RAD series torque wrenches (option) Drop prevention for all RAD battery torque wrenches (option)
Trigger guard kit for E-RAD series torque wrenches Hand guard kit for pneumatic series torque wrenches Double safety trigger for pneumatic series torque wrenches (option)
