Pirelli relies on STAHLWILLE torque wrenches 12 October 2018

The Italian Pirelli dealership network, Driver, has opted for torque technology made by STAHLWILLE in its new Driver kit, which is being rolled out to more than 435 tyre specialists in the Pirelli network.

Driver provides professional services in all matters relating to the sale and fitting of tyres for vehicles of all kinds. Since May this year, the Driver kit now enables users to work even more accurately and effectively.

Included in this Driver kit, STAHLWILLE is supplying the MANOSKOP® 721/20 Quick torque wrench – which is predestined for fast, safe wheel changes – as a limited edition with the Driver logo. Also part of the kit is a voucher for free of charge calibration of the torque wrench and a chart developed by STAHLWILLE that allows the right tightening torque for any vehicle to be located quickly and easily.

MANOSKOP 721/20 Quick features the flexible rod trigger mechanism that is only available in STAHLWILLE products and does not require a coil spring. This mechanism saves users time, which is normally wasted by users of other torque tools resetting the spring to zero. At the same time, this flexible rod technology is more durable and guarantees long-term accuracy and reliability.

The slider for setting the required target torque is quickly unlocked using the easily accessible locking lever in the handle and moved using the slip-resistant thumb recess. Fast, exact setting, even where the angle of sight is unfavourable, is facilitated by the twin Vernier scale (Nm/ft·lb or Nm/in·lb) with special markings and an integrated magnifier.
