The 27-piece Socket set 19 IMU-10 (offer price in the current MAGIC promotion €320.11 including VAT) contains 1/2" versions of the reversible ratchet 1993 U-10 T, twelve socket inserts no. 19 hex in key widths 10 to 30 mm with Unit Drive Profile (UD profile), screwdriver bits no. 19 in-hex in 5, 6, 7, 8, 10, 12 and 14 mm, screwdriver bits no. 19 slotted in 8x1.2 mm and 10x1.2 mm, screwdriver bits no. 19 crosshead PH 2 3, two extensions 1990-5 125 mm and 1990-10 250 mm and one 1995 universal joint 73.5 mm.
With its comprehensive range of bits, the socket wrench set covers all the usual screwdriving tasks, and can be used universally. Thanks to the two extensions, tightening or loosening tasks can also be carried out in lower areas of the engine space or chassis. The set is housed well-organised in a high-quality, blue steel sheet case. The case is designed to be particularly strong and durable, which ensures that the tools are always safely stored. The socket bits have the GEDORE Unit Drive Profile, which ensures the ideal transmission of force and optimises the screwdriving process. The UD Profile has a wavy structure with rounded contact points. This structure spares the screw heads and creates the ideal force closure with an up to 20% higher torque transmission.
The 2C reversible ratchet 1/2" 1993 U-10 T included in the set has a return-swing angle of 7.5°, and is equally suitable for use in industry and on commercial vehicles. In addition to the effortless adjustment to clockwise and anticlockwise by means of a lever, the ratchet can be locked in the central position, which is particularly useful e.g. for tasks where alignment is required. The lever is recessed in the ratchet head to prevent unintentional adjustment while working.
GEDORE's product range includes various other reversible ratchets in 1/2" in addition to the 1993 U-10 T included in this set. If, for instance, a particularly low return-swing angle is required, or a ratchet for special use in confined installation spaces or with an extendible shaft, the following models are available for these requirements and available separately in addition to the socket wrench set.
An all-rounder among the GEDORE reversible ratchets is the 1993 U-20 1/2" (RRP €89.87 including VAT). The fine-toothed ratchet with a swivel angle of only 6° and a small, tear-shaped head is extremely versatile in use, and also serves to tighten and loosen screw connections in confined spaces.
The fine-toothed 1993 U-20 G 1/2" (offer price in the current MAGIC promotion €70.21 including VAT) in turn has an offset handle. In combination with an equally small and tear-shaped head and the low return-swing angle of 6°, the offset ratchet version is predestined for screwdriving tasks in confined and hard-to-reach areas. However, this ratchet also shows its advantages on level surfaces, as the slightly curved handle reduces the risk of injury to the fingers.
The powerful 1993 TU-10 Telescopic reversible ratchet 1/2" (highlight in the current MAGIC promotion €117.81 including VAT) with a return-swing angle of 7.5° extends in eight stages from 400 to a maximum of 600 mm. The extended shaft length achieves a higher leverage effect, which supports torques of up to 600 N·m and requires less force
for loosening tight screw connections. The telescopic ratchet is ideal, for instance, for changing tyres – especially in combination with GEDORE torque wrenches.
The 2C reversible ratchets by GEDORE also have a recessed lever in the ratchet head that is easily changed from clockwise to anticlockwise operation and can be locked in the middle position. The ball lock of the ratchets provides an unbreakable, safe connection between the tool and socket during screwdriving activities. Afterwards, the bits and connectors are easily and quickly detached from the ratchet by means of the practical push-button release. Formed from two components, the handle fits securely and ergonomically in the hand, facilitates a power transmission that is particularly kind to the hand, and so helps to prevent signs of tiredness when working.
Another addition for precise screwdriving tasks with the reversible ratchet is the 1990 M Extension 1/2" (offer price in the current MAGIC promotion €23.68 including VAT) by GEDORE. Fitted with a strong holding magnet, screws and nuts are securely fixed to prevent loss and kept centred in the socket wrench bit. This means they can be inserted directly using the socket wrench, which favours operation with only one hand. The magnet extension can also be used as a magnetic lifter.
All the above GEDORE tools are made from chrome-vanadium steel.
Anyone looking for further high-quality socket wrench sets and accessories will find what they want in GEDORE's extensive portfolio.
