Titan JUMBO Ratcheting Breaker Bar - 18in.L, Model# 12018
Daily user with great performance
I use this ratcheting breaker daily to bar over very large engines and it gives me the extra leverage I need for the torque it takes to turn them. It is capable of getting into close quarters due to the small diameter of the head on the tool. I have had problems with other brands but this one has proven to be tough enough to handle the everyday grind. The one draw back that I have from time to time is the forward/reverse dial on the head does tend to get changed when in use. It only happens occasionally and in very close quarters so I cannot complain.

breaker bar and ratchit with a long reach
My husband does the up keep on our equiptment and removing the blades from the different mowers was a problem,reaching the nut and getting it off. The breaker bar is strong and long and a ratchit to boot. Makes changing the blades so much easier

This has come in very handy in the workplace. Doesn't get a lot of use but I purchased it for a certain job that requires a lot of torque and limited space so the ratchet makes the job much easier versus repositioning the allen socket every 1/8 turn. The only problem I have had and that keeps this at 4 stars is the accidental changing or ratcheting direction. If you are like me you place your other hand on the business end of the ratchet for leverage and to help keep the socket on straight. This sometimes rotates the directional ring and the ratchet will change directions on you. Nice solid tool though.

Wont stand up to advertised torque rating. Ratchet broke long before that rating. But it did work great before it broke.

It's a ratchet.....
Great for loosening trailer lugs. Ratchet select ring does not change while using unless your hand gets in the way. Once you figure that out it works great.

Amazing Breaker bar
I am an aircraft mechanic who spends alot of my time inside of aircraft Fuel Tanks. The space is limited, most of the time, and breaking loose the fuel tubing "B" nuts can be a challenge. When I was browsing the Internet and came across the BEST price on the "1/2 in. Drive Jumbo Crowfoot Wrenches", I purchased those and then added this Breaker Bar. When I read the Discription of this tool ... I HAD TO TRY IT!!!!! ...........Long story short ... These two items have made my job SOOO much easier!!! The ratcheting mecainism, when in close quarters, is perfect for changing the angle, just so slightly, you are able to have enough room to break the "B" nuts loose on the tubing. I told a few mechanics about the Breaker bar and Crowfoot set. I even loaned them out to co-workers and the reviews were outstanding. I know of at least one mechanic that went on line and purchased the same items for himsrelf!!! Thank you, Northern Tool + Equipment.
