Has anyone used one of these tools to help get out stubborn nuts and bolts and to prevent breaking them off ?

Are they available in Australia , or can they be hired ??

Have only ever seen one once on tv and that was when Edd China used one on Wheeler Dealers, did a quick search and there are some available in Oz range from $300 to $2000. Seems like a lot of coin for the odd stubborn nut, especially if you have a oxy or angle grinder, unless it’s something you would use a lot.

lol...I love the way their product detail and operating type info are in such poor English, but the payment rules etc are perfect English. Priorities.

yes , that's the one, Snap-on apparently sell 1 but its about $1000US

Ive got an old tractor with a flat head

They are notorious for breaking head bolts due to the bolts running into the water jacket.

I need to change the head on it.
