Hmmm, Just done a little research done on these. The ACDELCO ARM601-4 has only a 99 ft-lb upper limit but does a lower minimum limit of 4 ft-lbs. Now the Kobalt 80720 has a lower limit of 12.5 ft-lbs and an upper limit of 250 ft-lbs @ only 70 usd more. Of course there are digital adapters that can be used with pull bars too.

All of these are fairly expensive especially compared to my 10 usd Harbor Freight clicker torque wrenches. But dropping 200 usd is a big drop in the bucket for me just to go to digital. For me I am willing to pay more for the 3/4 600 ft-lbs clicker torque wrench; even the 3/4 300 ft-lb one I currently cost more than the 6 HF [3 RH and 3 LH] ones put to together. Now for the price of the digital 1/2 Kobalt 250 ft-lbs digital I can get the Performance Tool M204 3/4 100-600 ft-lbs clicker. Now the Wright Tool 6448 is nearly 3X the price. Since I seldom need more than 300 ft-lbs LH so I would just convert the 3/4 300 ft-lbs to full time LH if I do get the 3/4 600 ft-lbs. Anyway that will need to be in the Summer at the earliest for me.

Plus even through I like the digital versions of my other clickers I been having a lot failure of the digital equipment. This may be due the temperatures that they are stored at as the shop during the Winter does drop to below freezing temps.
