Impact air ratchet (reactionless) – no hand slamming

If you’ve used air ratchets you know how much they suck, particularly right when the bolt gets tight your hand goes flying into a piece of metal.

Although they have existed for some time now, most people don’t know about reactionless air ratchets. These reactionless air ratchets are basically impact air ratchets, but what makes them impact also enables them to be ‘reactionless’ in terms of not making your hand move when the bolt gets tight. You can think about it in the same way as how an impact wrench works, all the torque none of the feedback.

Brands like SP air and Hazet make mini versions of these ratchets that can output 50-60 Ft-lb and they are a treat to use.
