Its oval head houses a 90-tooth gear, seven-level claw driving mechanism offering world top-class precision condensed into the small head of ¼ square inch ratchet and realizing a feed angle of only 4°. With an overall length of 125 mm, this compact ratchet handle fits snuggly in the palm of your hand. It is ideal for working in tight spaces or for when a delicate sense of torque is called for. Despite its small size, this tool was designed to meet nepros’ strict requirements for ease of use, while offering strength on par with previous models as well as a light return travel. Short-type and flex-type versions are also available.
