Big Wrenches

I bought these huge wrenches for $10 off CL. Not sure why. But they're cool. The smal wrench in the picture in one of my 1/2" wrenches.

Tractor Hydraulic lines need those types of wrenches.
As a Service Mechanic, I had twice that amount... with 50% of them heated and bent to fit certain Tractors .
love that they installed the lines then built the tractor around them.

I cut it 3 times..... and it's still too short.

Dont go ninja'ing anybody that dont need no ninja'ing...

I am a mechanic for the railroad. I take care of all the weird looking machines that maintain the tracks. Those wrenches are worth their weight in gold to me, especially when dealing with large hydraulic lines and stuff in tight areas where the head of a big adjustable wrench wont go. Here is a seldom known trick for breaking the big rusted hoses loose, use an air hammer on the corners of the fitting and push. I don't care how long its been on there or how rusted and tight that will bring it off. Even most mechanics don't know this trick but its a knuckle and frustration saver for sure.
