Probably struggle with some tough crank pulley bolts, my old snap on struggled on some of these, so then I got this bad boy out
Mac tools bwp 151 18v cordless impact
BRUSHLESS motor and heavy duty impactor offers improved fastening torque of 950Nm and breakaway torque of 1,625Nm

Never come across a crank bolt pulley that can not be undone by this tool😀
A friend of mine had a Lidl one that undone very little other than wheel bolts and some shock absorber bolts

Did you unstake the nuts first John

I use a 32mm King Dick offset ring spanner for these nuts, and it's just over 15" long

I did.-

First job , apprenticed Toolmaker. Been fighting with mechanical objects most of my life when not designing them.--

Then in the drawing office for many years designing special purpose machinery.


The reason I needed extra leverage is because I am very Old. When you reach 82 you will know exactly what I mean.-------You will find that you will probably have trouble with your nuts too.-----If you catch my drift. Lol. )
