Its oval head houses a 90-tooth gear, 7-level claw driving mechanism, offering world top-class precision condensed into the small head of 1/4”sq. ratchet, and realizing a feed angle of only 4°. With an overall length of 125mm, 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 strict nepros’ strict requirements for ease of use, while offering strength on par with previous models as well as a light return travel.
