Overall Auto Express Rating

3.0 out of 5

Best price: £24.99 Range: 28-210Nm

There's a lot going for this budget wrench. It comes with an extension bar and handy half-inch to 3/8-inch adaptor. It wasalso accurate, pushing our winner and the Norbar close over the 15 tests. As with the similar Sealey AK624, you can see where the price has been kept low, with a coarse ratchet and no calibration certificate. Despite these factors, it would have finished higher had it included an imperial scale on the tool. Conversion tables are provided, but aren’t as useful as having a scale in front of you.
