P r o d u c t s M T D N o v e m b e r 2 0 1 8 102 New lug nut wrench folds for easy storage Ken-Tool's new 35636 Stow & Go heavy-duty 4-way lug nut wrench can be stowed in a trunk, a tool box or behind a seat thanks to its fold-away design. The company says the moveable arms easily swing and lock into the 90-degree position, plus the arms can be slid within the locking hub to create greater leverage. The Stow & Go features three fixed 17, 19 and 21 mm lug nut sockets, plus a ½-inch square drive adapter to use other sockets for lug nut removal. It also doubles as a heavy- duty, high-torque wrench. KEN-TOOL CORP. TBC offers Wild Spirit HST-C for light commercial vehicles TBC Brands has released the Wild Spirit HST-C for the sprinter and commercial van segment.

The tire is available in seven sizes: 215/55R16, 195/70R15C, 185/60R15C, 195/75R16C, 225/75R16C, 205/65R15C, 235/65R16 in load ranges XL, C, D and E.

LUMILEDS LLC Impact wrench has torque level control The new CP7782TL-6 one-inch torque limited impact wrench from Chicago Pneumatic Tool is designed for heavy vehicle tire replacement.

The CP7782TL-6 one-inch torque limited impact wrench allows users to keep the same power when loosening nuts while avoiding overtightening them in the forward position. CHICAGO PNEUMATIC TOOL CO.
