Torque wrenches are finally changing after being the same for much of the last century. GearWrench is throwing their hat in the ring with their 85076 3/8″ Electronic Torque Wrench. No longer does setting torque requirements require the technician to twist their wrist into eternity. With the GearWrench electronic torque wrench (model 85076), you get a 3/8″ drive torque wrench that beeps, blinks and vibrates.

GearWrench Electronic Torque Wrench Features

Setting units of measure on the GearWrench electronic torque wrench is as easy as pushing the “Uni” button. Five units of measurement are avaiable: Nm, in./lbs., ft./lbs., Kgfm, and Kgfcm. Once the unit of measure is selected, the user holds down the up or down arrow until they reach the amount of torque desired.

Once the torque setting is entered, the LED display will show “0.00” and the user is ready to torque the fastener/s. As the user nears the desired torque setting, a red LED will begin to blink and an audible beep will begin. The closer you get to the setting, the more frequent the LED will blink and the audible beep will get faster. When 100% of the torque setting is reached, the beep will become constant, and the LED will be solid red. In addition, the handle will vibrate.

Conclusion

The GearWrench electronic torque wrench has much of the same great qualities as their ratchets and ratcheting wrenches. This 85076 torque wrench is easy to use and has an ergonomic grip that aids in comfort and durability. I would like to see TTY (Torque to Yield) angle settings, but the model does not include TTY. A 1 year warranty covers any manufacturer defects, and there is a 90-day warranty on the accuracy of the 85076 GearWrench electronic torque wrench.
