Ingersoll Rand releases redesigned air ratchets
Ingersoll Rand's redesigned 107XPA and 109XPA air ratchets feature improvements such as increased torque and better ergonomics, the company reports.
The redesigned air ratchets have coil spring and ball tensioning in the ratchet head for more consistent, long-lasting head tensioning that is less susceptible to fork spreading.
The handles have been contoured for increased comfort and control and given a more contemporary styling, reports the company. Operators now can use the tool for extended periods of time with less fatigue.
Both ratchets also feature 360-degree adjustable exhaust that provides additional flexibility by allowing the exhaust to be directed away from the operator or work piece.
The heavy-duty 107XPA ratchet has a 3/8-inch drive size and weighs only 2.75 pounds while delivering 54 foot-pounds of maximum torque. Users benefit from its variable speed lever-style throttle, enabling a higher degree of control. This ratchet is also offered with a 1/2-inch square drive, the 1077XPA
The super-duty 109XPA “club” style has a 3/8-inch drive size and weighs only 3.3 pounds. The large high torque motor is coupled with an optimized gearing package to provide the best balance of speed and torque. The 109XPA delivers 76 foot-pounds of maximum torque and is controlled by a variable-speed button trigger, enabling a higher degree of control. This ratchet is also offered with a 1/2-inch square drive, the 1099XPA.
The ratchets are engineered and manufactured using state-of-the-art materials and are heat treatmented for durability.
