RAD Torque
and the Mining Industry

Mining is a challenging job. The physical labor is demanding, and operator safety is always on everyone’s mind. The heavy equipment and hauling trucks used in mining are some of the toughest in the world, and one breakdown can put a crimp in an entire mine’s work.

That’s why at RAD Torque, we deliver the tools needed to keep extracted materials moving both on-site and off. Because we have deep experience working for some of the largest mining companies in the world — think Suncor and Syncrude — we understand the pressures and the needs.

Providing Efficient Maintenance

The mining industry’s haul trucks are second to none anywhere in the world. Trucks such as the Komatsu 980 or the Caterpillar 797 carry almost 400 tons in a single haul. When one of these trucks breaks down or needs maintenance, it’s a top priority to get them moving again.

RAD Torque tools help keep everything running. Our larger tools — such as our 50DX and 60DX — provide the reliable torque needed to change the tires on these massive trucks. That’s why companies like Finning and Kal Tire rely on RAD torque tools to change tires and keep mining trucks rolling in Canada.

And that’s not all. Those big trucks like the Cat 797 and Komatsu 980 need more than tires. So, we provide strut kits for them, as well as other tools, including:

  • Tools for engine barring
  • Tie rod bolts for haul truck suspensions
  • Wrenches for track pads, final drive segments, cutting blades, mill liners, and wheel nuts
  • Transducer verification

OUR TOOLS KEEP MECHANICS WORKING AT SOME OF THE LARGEST MINES IN THE WORLD. THEY DELIVER THE KIND OF RELIABLE PERFORMANCE THAT BOOSTS PRODUCTIVITY AND MINIMIZES DOWNTIME.

Lifting the Weight off Workers' Shoulders

Miners have a tough job that’s demanding on the body. The labor is strenuous and sometimes dangerous. The last thing miners need are tools that contort their bodies and send them home in pain every night.

That’s where we come in. At RAD Torque, we make sure every tool we design is ergonomically friendly.

Back in the day, the mining industry relied on hefty impact wrenches. The hammering and vibration of these wrenches was extremely destructive to miners’ bodies. They caused damage to miners’ wrists and resulted in Hand-Arm Vibration Syndrome, a disorder that can result in permanent nerve damage.

Those days are over, thanks to the ergonomic tools from RAD Torque. Our torque wrenches allow operators to set the desired torque to a +/- accuracy of 5%. This removes impact from the picture and protects your employees’ bodies.

SAFER WORKERS ARE STRONGER WORKERS, ESPECIALLY IN A SAFETY-CONSCIOUS INDUSTRY LIKE MINING. RAD TORQUE IS PROUD TO BE PART OF THAT DRIVE FOR SAFETY AND ERGONOMICS.

Lifting the Weight off Workers' Shoulders

Our tools are designed with mining in mind. We understand heavy duty hauling. We offer several tools to help mechanics working at some of the largest mines in the world get their jobs done:

  • Strut kits
  • RAD TV Series (Transducer Verification)
  • RAD 15NDX-R
  • RAD 15DX
  • RAD 34GX
  • RAD 50DX
  • RAD 60DX

WHAT OUR CLIENTS SAY

“I never realized how short we were coming up on proper torque specs until I started using RAD Tools. The power in the 30DX is unbelievable for its size. No more loose bolts.”
