Two new dual-end ratchet wrenches from Lowell Corp. give high-line utility workers multiple options in a single tool for greater flexibility when tackling a variety of common pole fasteners, lag bolts and C clamps.
The Models 101TDE and 103TDE are designed with the durability and turning power to meet the specific needs of linemen. To ensure longer tool life, each dual wrench uses the same solid construction as Lowell's proven 151T lineman's wrench. In addition to being ready for tough duty, the wrenches also can generate the kind of torque necessary for loosening and tightening utility pole hardware.
The ratcheting socket end of each wrench is a triple square providing three sizes. The socket is made of cast iron for durability and painted fluorescent orange for easy visibility and tracking. The other end is a ratcheting box hex with a low-profile for use in tight spots. Both wrenches have rugged, fabricated steel handles. A bolt-thru feature allows long bolts and threaded rods to pass completely through the wrench head. Each wrench also has a large control lever on the side of the head to make reversing easy.
