Snap-on has added almost 50 new sockets to expand its heavy-duty ¾ in. Flank Drive impact socket set. Flank Drive impact sockets are heat-treated to optimize service life with a lower hardness than traditional hand sockets, the company said.
A special alloy socket steel provides longer life and offers up to 20% more turning power without slipping or rounding while exceeding ANSI performance standards, Snap-on noted.
“Heavy-duty techs told us they needed a larger variety of impact sockets,” said Scott Amundson, product manager for Snap-on. “With the added number of heavy duty ¾ in. Flank Drive impact sockets, combined with our existing part numbers, I know Snap-on has the most complete offering of impact sockets anywhere.”
