Pneumatic Torque Wrench: Saves Time
Manufacturer adds the Wright Torque System to its line of torque wrenches. Patent-pending Wright Torque wrenches are continuous-turning, high-speed pneumatic torque wrenches that provide time savings up to 70%, depending on the bolting application, says the manufacturer. Unlike traditional torque wrenches, these are compact for use in confined areas and have torque ranges from 88 to 4,500 lb per ft within plus or minus 5% accuracy and repeatability of 5%. They also reduce vibration and other problems associated with impacting tools.

Tractor/Scraper: AutoLoad System
AutoLoad is an automatic scraper control system, designed for operators of pull-type scrapers who are looking for ways to improve efficiency and reduce op-erator fatigue. The system automates the scraper’s hydraulic lift functions during the loading cycle. Once activated, it automatically adjusts the scraper’s cutting edge height according to draft loads of the equipment without operator intervention. The system is disengaged at the end of the cut through normal operation of the selective control valve lever in the tractor. AutoLoad is compatible with the company’s 9020 Series wheel tractors with powershift transmission as well as ejector and carry-all type scrapers. John Deere; 800-503-3373; www.JohnDeere.com
