Definitely one of the lowest prices I've seen on a GW 1/2" digital torque wrench. Most other sellers want over $150 for it.
  • "Target torque alert" gives a warning as you approach the target torque; vibrating handle, buzzer, and solid LED light indicate when target is reached
  • 72 Tooth ratchet mechanism with a 5° swing arc allows you to turn fasteners in tight spaces
  • Handle and housing are oil and solvent resistant, protecting the tool from harmful agents and keeping your hands in place
  • 5 torque measurement units provide a readout in Nm, ft lb, In pounds, kgf m, and kg cm
  • Torque accuracy of +/ 2 percent CW and +/ 3 percent CCW between 20 percent and 100 percent of wrench capability
**NOTE - Just noticed Walmart is offering at the same price [walmart.com] (not sure who matched whose price). Also, as an FYI - the 30-340 Nm scale equates to apprx 22 - 250 ft lbs.

I have a Craftsman 1/2 digital and this is better. I have a Snap On 3/8 digital and a GearWrench 1/4 digital as well, so I have good experience with different brands. That said, the Craftsman is simply a regular torque wrench with a digital screen to set torque.

Don't get me wrong, the Craftsman is made well, but doesn't show you the torque progression as you approach the target setting and only clicks like a micrometer style torque wrench when you hit target torque. The GW shows you the torque progression, digitally, as you tighten the bolt and then can be set to alert you 10, 25, 50% of torque target by beeping and eventually vibrating as you hit target torque. Additionally, it will show you where you torque it at when you stop... so, set it at 80 ft lbs and crank it past that, then it will show you, for ex, that you stopped at 85 ft lbs instead of 80 ft lbs. Finally, it should show degrees as well. I know on some mfr torque specs on my VW that VW calls for, for ex, 90 ft lbs + 90 degrees (**EDIT - I'm not sure on this, the degrees may only be on the more expensive 85079 model with flex head and not this, the 85077 model).

If I didn't already have the digital 1/2 Craftsman, I'd have bought this, myself - at least at this price.

Here's a YouTube video from Apex that's pretty good if you're seriously interested:

250lb-ft max is better than most in 1/2" drive. Seems like a decent deal.

Anyone knows about the warranty? Based on the review some says 1 year some says lifetime.

I purchased this for $110 on December 5, 2018. Used numerous times and I really like it. Have previously used HF click type and while it worked, this is nicer. Also, after years of use, my HF started to slip. I'm guessing an issue with the pawls, but haven't tried to take it apart to fix (if I even can). Interestingly, the handle on mine is red.
The 3/8" is also at the lowest price, so I may pick that one up.

Thanks for the feedback. I looked at price history and sd history and found the $110 lowest price in 2018 but felt like current price is good enough for me to grab one. By the way, hf torque wrench has lifetime warranty and no receipt is needed. You should get it replaced instead of fixing it yourself.

Good point on the HF warranty. I honestly haven't really worried about it much with this new Gearwrench.

I have one of these. Works well. The 250 ft-lb rating is necessary for crank pulley bolts.

Is it easy to switch this to ft lbs? Looks like it's Nm by default but it says ft lbs secondary

Yes, very easy. I don't recall how exactly, just check the directions.
