Rauckman Utility Products BW-223 BugWrench (End One Fitting - 9/16" Ratchet) (End Two Fitting - 3/4" Ratchet) (.7 lbs.)
Our other standard models provide unique combinations that allow line workers to carry one tool that will install hundreds of different connectors. The very popular 3/4" and 9/16" combinations, as in BW-223, is just right when installing or performing maintenance on overhead transformers.
The BugWrench handle is designed with a visual and physical indicator permanently molded (in a shape of a rib) in 2 positions on the handle. This rib provides an indication of the “isolated area” of the handle. Holding the wrench behind the appropriate rib (see photo) provides a 1,000 V rating between the metal working end and the operator’s hand.
Independent dielectric tests have demonstrated that the fiberglass reinforced nylon handle used on all non-conductive BugWrench models meet or exceed all electrical requirements contained in ASTM 1505-10.
The BugWrench handle is formulated of a high strength and high dielectric polymer. All BugWrench tools equipped with the high dielectric handle include the following features:
A see-through port in the center of the handle to confirm that the two ends are not electrically connected
Tool metal-to-metal electrical isolation superior to others
Pull-Apart Strength greater than others
Indicator Ribs for improved safety
High visibility yellow color
The unique design and manufacturing process ensures maximum metal-to-metal separation, with unmatched mechanical strength.
