Mountain 1/2 Inch Drive 25-250 ft/lb Torque Wrench, Model #16250
For a low cost torque wrench, this one has an amazing range; allowing you to set torques up to 250 foot-pounds. Thats 100 foot-pounds higher than any of the other torque wrenches on this list; which is why I feel it deserves the top spot. Its 25 inches long, making it slightly longer than the others; but you need that extra length for the higher torque values. The ratcheting head makes it easy to use it in tight places. It comes in a blow molded case for easier storage and to protect the tool.
