1/2" Drive High Performance Ratchet (237A 1/2) - it's not a secret that most of the USAG
and Facom ratchets are made in USAG's Gemonio factory in Italy.
In 2016, the engineer's at Facom/USAG introduced a new series of
high performance ratchets to replace the round head palm control
ratchets that have been around for the past 20 years. The ratchet
mechanism is now sealed from dust from the work environment.
Longer durability regardless of working conditions. The ratchets
are up to 15% lighter than the versions they are replacing and
the heads 10% more compact. Click on photos to enlarge.
