Milwaukee has announced the newest additions to their Mechanics Hand Tool lineup: Flex Head Ratcheting Combination Wrenches! The combination wrenches you know and love can now go even further with flexible heads for maneuvering through tight and hard-to-reach spaces. Combination wrenches are a staple in so many industries from transportation, automotive, and aviation to repair, electricians, and remodelers. With their 2.5 degree arc swing and 144 possible ratcheting positions, this new line gives users far more access to difficult nuts and bolts.

A Milwaukee Flex Head Combination Wrench is being used to fasten a bolt on a vehicle.

In addition to the pivoting head, the Flex Head Combination Wrenches are created to resist damage after repeated use in high-torque situations. Their ratchet mechanisms now have double stacked pawls to provide the longest ratchet life possible and prevent the tool from wearing down with each use. Many users struggle with having nuts and bolts round off or get stripped from fastening/loosening in high-torque applications. The open end of the Flex Head wrenches feature Milwaukee’s Max Bite grip that provides up to 25% more torque and greatly reduces rounding and stripping.

A hex key can be inserted into the screw on the side of the wrench head to adjust the tension.

The Flex Head can be adjusted to your preferred tension to lock the head in place or keep it flexible. Each wrench is designed with a set screw to allow you to loosen or tighten the head easily. You can also use a hex key or hex driver to make adjustments if needed.

SAE and Metric Flex Head Wrench Sets

The Flex Head Wrenches are available in full sets or as individuals in both SAE and metric sizing options. The 15-piece sets come in a tray designed for steel storage drawers for efficient storage with no wasted space. They include 8MM through 22MM combination wrenches in the metric set and 1/4″ through 1″ wrenches in the SAE set to fit a full range of applications.

The 7-piece kits come in a portable, locking storage tray, offering organization both on and off the jobsite. Standing behind their products, Milwaukee also offer a Lifetime Guarantee on all of their Combination Wrench Sets.
