Abstract:

The capabilities and limitations of two new impact wrenches that are smaller and appear more versatile than those normally carried in Mobile Construction Battalion tool allowances were determined. One wrench was air driven and the other was hammer actuated. The maximum torque of the wrenches and the torque that causes failure in capscrews were determined, and time studies to compare performance of the wrenches with that of conventional socket wrenches were conducted.
