Why hire a torque wrench instead of buying?
Flexibility! You only hire the right bolting equipment for the period required, so there are no wasted resources. With equipment hire you have the flexibility to pick and choose what you want and when you want it. This can be particularly beneficial for operators that experience fluctuating demand on large projects – like a 2 to 4 week maintenance shut down.
Enjoy peace of mind knowing that your team will be working with safe high-quality torque wrenches that are calibrated, serviced and well maintained. Hiring is a way of mitigating the risk of investing significant amounts of money on a piece of equipment only to find that the situation changes – plus you can put your working capital to better use. Hire is so much more cost effective.
A good quality torque wrench set can cost 17 – 20K, so hiring your torque wrenches can save you many thousands. This is especially true with low profile cassette torque tools, which require different size cassettes to fit each nut AF. (For example, if a you purchase a W4000 drive, you will also need to purchase a range of cassettes 55m, 60mm, 70mm etc to make up starter torque wrench set.)
Of course, the decision whether to hire or buy torque equipment will depend on many factors like the nature of the work plus the amount of ongoing use, your balance sheet, the level of flexibility that you desire and so on, but be assured that when you hire from an established equipment hire company like Jonel Hydraulics you get qualified, expert advice and recommendations for the optimum solution for your job, large or small.
