New Snap-on Specialty Tool For Mack, Volvo Trucks

snap-onThe Snap-on 1/2-inch drive 14mm 6-point Impact Socket (S6314) is a new, durable specialty tool for Mack and Volvo trucks that allows service technicians to easily remove and install the camshaft cap bolts on trucks with the MP8 series engine.

“The S6314 features deeper broach depth, which is critical to the application to accommodate the longer threads found on the camshaft cap bolts,” said Scott Amundson, product manager for Snap-on. “Snap-on customers will likely see an immediate increase in efficiency when using the S6314 because the Flank Drive grips the fastener on the flanks/flats, increasing torque by 15-20 percent, preventing the fastener from rounding and increasing the life of the socket.”

Customers can learn more about the new Snap-on 1/2-inch drive 14mm 6-point Impact Socket (S6314) by contacting their participating Snap-on franchisee or representative, visiting www.snapon.com/handtools or by calling toll free 877-SNAPON-4 (877-762-7664).
