What to know before you buy Wera Zyklop 8000 B SB Ratchet
What is the advantage of this Wera Zyklop 8000 B SB Ratchet?
Zyklop ratchet with 3 8 drive. The 72 fine-pitched teeth enable a low return angle of only 5 . The ratchet head pivots freely and can be locked into any position by using the slide switch that is positioned on either side. It is even possible to work conveniently in very confined and difficult-to-access areas with enhanced hand clearance. The predefined locking positions at 0 , 15 und 90 , both to the right and left, ensure safe working without any slipping of the ratchet head. The ratchet can be used as a conventional screwdriver in the 0 position by attaching an adaptor and a bit. The flywheel design ensures rapid screw driving. The rotation-symmetric construction of the Kraftform handle and the free-turning sleeve support rapid twisting. The outstanding design of the Kraftform handle fits perfectly into the hand preventing hand injuries such as blisters and calluses. The hard materials used for the handle ensure quick and easy hand repositioning without any danger of the skin sticking to the handle. The softer anti-slip zones enable the low-loss transfer of high torque. For 3 8 square sockets as well as 3 8 adaptors with square drive, equipped with ball lock.
Customer reviewsGood ratchet
The reviews on Wera tools are generally very good, and opted for one of these in my collection to handle automotive, industrial and homeowner projects. Unfortunately the wrench I received had some sort of defect in its ratchet mechanism and it consistently slipped skipped teeth when tightening bolts. I purchased a second ratchet which seems to work fine for light duty applications. I like the ergonomics of the handle and head controls.
