MONTREAL — Martins Industries Inc. has developed a mobile impact wrench support stand that it said is designed to reduce fatigue normally associated with repeatedly lifting and torquing an impact wrench.
The new stand is compatible with most impact wrenches and features a solid gas cylinder and a steel bracket for maximum strength, stability and durability.
The stand is designed to support weight up to 50 pounds and enhance precision by allowing users to move the wrench freely in all directions while installing lug nuts. When not in use, a locking system will secure the impact wrench onto the tray, which also can be used to set lug nuts, covers and indicators within arm's reach.
Martins' Industries President Martin Depelteau said the product is in response to customers "who expressed the need to have a practical product that will aid the technicians and prevent injuries from lifting and torquing an impact wrench."
The support stand is priced at $450.
Martins Industries designs and manufacturers tire equipment to store, handle, inflate and display tires and wheels. It operates distribution centers in Canada, Netherlands, Australia, United Arab Emirates and the U.S., and manufactures at facilities in Canada and China
