SIMPLE, EASY TO USE

I used it a lot before the belt broke. It has a 2 year warranty so if its after that time and the belt breaks go to WalMart or Target and buy a new wrench, remove the new belt and return the new wrench as a out of box failure - non functioning unit. I would buy the belt for $3-$5. Sadly, a 1000 of them would not take any space or cost much. I am a product manager and as such I would implement a courtesy replacement for the belt. Something that is virtually free will now cost them a return from WalMart. Just Save your receipt and box/packaging.

Pros: Simple easy to use, relatively inexpensive, helpful in tight spaces

Cons: No parts available - specifically the drive belt. Time to go to WalMart or Target and buy a new wrench, remove the new belt and return it as an out of box failure - non functioning unit

It's junk

Just got off of the phone with B&D Service. No parts available to repair the broken drive belt. tool is discontinued and nothing can be done. Another strike against cheap products being imported from China.

Pros: nothing

Cons: belt broke after only a couple uses. tool is too bulky to be of much use. a waste of money.

Good Idea - One bad part

Got this as a gift. Only use for quick, light duty. Neat idea.

Pros: Concept/Idea

Cons: Used seldom, but always glad to have hanging on my shop wall for quick, light jobs. Only problem is the belt drive. Belts break (e.g. sanders, etc), but see no reason B&D can't list a replacement belt. Paying about $5 for a postpaid part would be acceptable, but about $25 to replace the whole tool just because of a broken belt is not acceptable!!!

Cool Gadget Tool Gift... not for heavy use

My wife gave this nifty wrench to me as a birthday or Christmas gift a few years ago. I've used it several times when I wanted a convenient way to torque down a leaking garden hose on an outdoor spigot or something like that. The batteries died in it a couples days ago, replaced them but the motor couldn't automatically close the jaws. It could only open them. I was disappointed, searched for advice from other owners & couldn't find anything positive about the wrench. At least my wrench's belt hadn't broken. I tried spraying the top & bottom of the thumb wheel pin on either side of the wrench with WD-40 and that lubricated it enough so the motor opens & closes the jaws just as fast when the wrench was brand new! I'm happy this wrench won't be tossed in the junk heap now.

Pros: Automatically adjusts the wrench quickly when your other hand is holding something else in place. Hang tab is useful for hanging wrench from a peg board.

Cons: Not meant for high torque or tight spaces. Instructions don't mention it requires lubrication. Motor belt is flimsy & should be offered as a service part.

Isn't anybody paying attention at B & D. This wrench is JUNK.

It was on sale at Home Depot for $3.00 (now I know why!). When I got home I started to try it out. When held so that the motor has to lift the movable jaw the motor stalled. I thought that customers playing with it in store the had run the AAA batteries down. So I replaced the batteries with with new AAA alkaline batteries and the results are the same. The motor does not have sufficient power to lift the movable jaw. Further in a tool box other tools a tool is likely to operate the switch which would run the jaw to one end or the other of its travel leaving the motor stalled until it ran the batteries flat, probably in much less than one hour.

How can B&D management allow such junk to be sold under its name. If they had given this tool to even five of their DIY employees the would have quickly found its serious shortcomings. No decent mechanic would give this poorly engineered tool three minutes of his time. Don't buy one, if you have return it and get your money back.

Pros: I thought it would be convenient to have it automatically tighten on a hidden nut or bolt. If it worked properly and wouldn't kill it batteries in a tool box that might justify its existence. Heck, if they had even given this tool to a eight year old boy with any experience with tools he would have quickly discovered its shortcomings.

Cons: JUNK - weak motor. JUNK - in a tool box it will kill its batteries.
