My biggest torque wrench goes to 275 ft lbs but I have 3 to 1 and 4 to1 multipliers to make life easier.

It had good reviews and I agree that it appears to be well made I inspected
it last night the lock for the adjust is splined and slides easily but has a
detent lock in both the open and closed positions.

While I would agree with your sentiments, I own shit that exceeds my
250 ft*lb wrench.

It was an option I looked at, but cost versus accuracy, I choose this route.

When you come to torque nothing is moving so the accuracy is good

It has been my experience that using a 1"drive torque wrench with a 4 to 1 multiplier, several stories off the ground, on open beam connections, can be....stimulating


IE; it will definitely put shit in your blood...
