I looked at mine, it’s actually 1.2Nm to 3.0Nm

Had to go and check as this was niggling me and it is indeed 1.2-3.0Nm.

I got this set as an Amazon warehouse deal - as new for about £15 more than the driver on its own. Went with Wera as I had a couple of handles and all the blades I needed, so ended up with doubles of most. The torque driver has only been used for one job (wanted to ensure I hadn't squashed conductors to within an inch of their existence), but can not fault the simplicity or quality of it. The regular handles get used a lot and, again, I can not fault them - blades locate as solidly as the day they were new. I guess the only issue with Wera is whether or not people find the handles comfortable, but they suit me just fine.

I think that is the Wera one I have.

I also have a 1/4" drive torque wrench and 3/8" torque wrench that allow me to cover up to 25Nm or so for the likes of M8 on bigger switchgear, but they are not insulated so I always feel very uncomfortable using them on electrics (instead of mechanics) even after proving dead...

For DIN rail terminals and a few other things I was thinking about getting the next one down, think it is 0.3 to 1.2Nm and takes the same 9mm insulated bits.

I went for the armeg, must say not overly impressed, had a few 3.5mm flat heads snap, and a +/-1 also the foam in the carry case stopped gripping all the bits after a year
Wasn't overall impressed with it either fairly poor quality for the price. Have a wiha one also which isn't bad but you have to take he bit of to change torque. Wera one looks good

I’ve looked at the wrench for doing mccb’s, pricy but I suppose if you want to torque them, then that’s what you need.
