Doesn't it try and rip your arm off while you're doing it though, Eric? All that torque does have to go somewhere...

When I changed mine, I used a Snap-on 1/2" breaker bar with a scaffolding bar Cry, next time a cheaper 3/4" breaker bar for sure.

Chaps

I cheat and use a cordless Milwaukee impact gun with 650Nm of torque it does not matter if I use the 1/2 inch drive it come with or an adaptor to 3/4 as long as they are impact gun material since the chrome vanadium type can explode into shrapnel. I no longer need a 10 feet scaffold pole to losen crank nuts rusted in place over 30 years.

Mrs Hawk bought me a new trolley jack a few years ago and it came with 12v impact gun.  Expecting it to be a POS I just stored it in one of my cabinets - only to dig it our when trying to undo a stubborn sprocket nut on a motorcycle.  And it's bloody brilliant.

I power it from a battery booster pack and it hasn't failed (yet) to shift a nut.  They only cost about 30 which is lots cheaper than a decent breaker bar.

Hawk

Maplin do a surprisingly good cheap cordless item and they really are amazing compared to bouncing on long scaffold poles.
