ProMAXX touts new PowerDrive Hex Adapter

ProMAXX Tool’s new PowerDrive Hex Adapter converts any type of 1/4-inch drive ratchet, including electric, air, and hand, into a powerful, high-torque hex screwdriver, the company noted in a press release. What makes the PowerDrive Hex different from other ratchet adapters is its small, 1/2-inch-tall profile. The compact adapter design allows users to reach limited access areas with an included straight- or Phillips-head hardened-steel bit. Additionally, the PowerDrive Hex accepts any 1/4-inch security hex shank specialty bit. This allows technicians to use their ratchet for any repair, even in the tightest sections of the engine compartment, ProMAXX stated.

ProMAXX Tools are built in American and made with machine-shop-grade tooling, resulting in superior quality, and a faster return on tool investment dollars. The company’s wide variety of automotive repair kits offer simple solutions for complicated problems. ProMAXX Tools provide quality, productivity and precision.
