      Is there an agricultural engineer anywhere near you? That's where I borrowed mine from and cost a pack of beer

        This one just makes it if you are still struggling. It just short of the recommended torque or you could do 200nm plus 180 degrees. I have two of the smaller Teng wrenches and they are nice.

        I was thinking of getting one of these. If you can't borrow one I might be interested it buying it from you after you have used it

            You only need a bit of maths and common sense. My 70kg weight on the end of a 600mm breaker bar ~ 400nm
            F=MA
            70 x 9.81 = 686n
            x 0.60m = 412nm

            Incidentally I’d say 200 + 180deg is a lot more than 400nm on this bolt.

              I've always used the 200Nm + 180 degrees, but have never managed to get the full 180 degrees even with a long length of scaffold bar. You can get 200Nm + 90 degrees and then it gets very tight. I've never had one work loose with this method and replace the bolt each time. You will require a 3/4" socket and breaker bar. 1/2" will shear easily doing this bolt up.

                Why not get a number of people together to chip in and buy it ? And then just use it when you need it amongst themselves? Obviously you will need to pay postage whenever the next person wants to use it ? I'd be happy to contribute. I know on other forums where a guy rents out specialist tools with a full holding deposit.

                      Personally I've got a 1inch breaker and matching 27mm socket. I got 200nm on easily and could not get 180 degrees on.
                      My car was moving on the axle stands.. Never had one work loose..

                        I also undo them with my milwaukee impact. Zings them straight out no issue.

                          I only managed 90 degrees after the 200nm (I weigh 70kg too) and it was ****ing tight. No need for any more IMO

                          David, I have a 27mm socket and 3/4 inch breaker bar if you want to borrow them...

                            Thanks folks...i am north of 70kgs so thats not the issue I remember just how much of a non event it was getting the desired torque with the right tool and wanted to achieve it that way again.
