If people are looking for a powerful, reliable, accurate, and durable tool to add to their toolbox, then a hydraulic torque wrench might be the tool to choose. Hydraulic torque wrenches are power tools that have been built and designed with the purpose to tighten nuts and bolts. This may sound similar to a traditional handheld wrench, which is also used to tighten nuts and bolts, but a hydraulic torque wrench has a few benefits that a traditional handheld wrench cannot provide. The first benefit is the ability to reach into tight places. A hydraulic torque wrench can be used to fasten and tighten nuts, bolts, and screws that have been placed in hard to reach areas. Hard to reach areas are able to be reached with a hydraulic wrench, because there is no need to have to use large side to side motions to tighten the nuts, bolts, and screws. Instead, the wrench portion of this power tool will move in a circular motion that succeeds in tightening the nuts and bolts. The second benefit that comes from the ability to use a hydraulic torque wrench is the ability to prevent the tightening the nuts and screws too much. Overtightening of nuts and bolts can cause cracks, leaks, and breaks in the materials that are being used. A hydraulic torque wrench will make sure the nuts, bolts and screws are securely in place without being so tight that it puts a project or building at risk. Overtightening of nuts, bolts, and screws is prevented by the number of different hydraulic torque wrench calibration options that are available. These different calibration options guarantee that a nut, bolt, or screw will not be overtightened by making sure that the wrench will never achieve the power level that would cause the overtightening.
