3 Star Review   By member yanusbfd - Aug 30, 2008   

Strengths: Saves some finger work

Weakness: Drains batteries fast

Well, what more can I say about this? Black & Decker took a common adjustable wrench, extended the depth of the head and added a motor to spin the adjustment wheel. What you end up with is obviously a neat little toy that makes a cool metal whizzing sound as the motor opens and closes the jaw in response to the rocker switch on the right side of the wrench. Needless to say, this kind of motorized adjustment is certainly nice if you're used to having to continuously rotate the wheel to open or close a normal manual adjustable wrench. The only real down side to this mechanism is that continuous use of the motor wears down the batteries, so it behooves you to get over the coolness factor sooner rather than later. That said, the Auto Wrench takes plain old AAA batteries, so replacing them isn't a big deal. Also, the Auto Wrench can always be adjusted manually if the batteries duck out in the middle of something. One gotcha with this wrench might be that it cannot be used to exert as much torque as a conventional adjustable wrench. This has to do with the materials used in the construction of the wrench in order to accommodate the motor. One web site has actually subjected the Auto Wrench to a kind of torque destruction test, and the wrench was damaged with an amount of torque that did not damage a fully manual model. So, just take care and don't try to do things like loosen nuts and bolts that are rusted together. Break out the Liquid Wrench or WD-40 and a conventional wrench for these kinds of jobs.

Black & Decker 8" Auto Adjustable Wrench
4 Star Review   By member eldeff - Feb 26, 2008   

Strengths: quick adjustment, simple to use

Weakness: a bit bulky

I bought this as a gift for my husband, but I believe that I have used it as much as he has. He is not real handy with tools, but feels very comfortable with this easy-to-use tool. It is an easy wrench to operate for even the novice. The automatic opening and closing works with the simple press of a button after you put the jaws around the bolt’s head, and it opens and closes immediately….no slow motion here, very fast! One touch, and it automatically sizes for you, just like the TV commercial shows it does. Although a bit on the bulky side, it can tighten small as well as relatively big bolts. It works particularly great in tight areas where you don’t have room to turn a wrench or can’t get a socket on it. I like how it is ergonomically designed to fit nicely in your hand. We’ve only used it for relatively small jobs; so I can’t say how it functions on bigger heavy-duty jobs that may require more force. Both my husband and I love using this practical tool and would recommend it for everyone’s toolbox. It is indeed a great time-saver and highly effective in being able to be used one-handed.

Great Tool
5 Star Review   By carpentermama on Home Depot - Dec 29, 2007   

The Auto Wrench works easily and fits most items where I would personally use a wrench. The button works without effort. I really like this product and feel it will help my husbanc who has had part of his index finger amputated as he won't have to use a wratchet to tighten various objects, pipes, nuts, etc.

I have tendonitis in my right hand and wrist so the ease of use of this Auto wrench is so amazing. With just a touch of a button it tightens and loosens in a split second. I recommend this wrench to everyone who uses tools. It saves time in the task you are working on also. Best product ever made!!!!!!!

For Small Jobs
4 Star Review   By buddymilosmokey on Home Depot - Dec 27, 2007   

I haven't used it a lot but I think it will be great from small jobs. If you have heavy duty work you might need something a little more heavy duty. I am impressed with the fact that when it detects something it stops and fits tightly, my husband got it for Christmas and the grandkids had to play with it and I was concerned it would mash their finger but it stopped when it detected something solid. I would reccommend.

Auto Wrench
5 Star Review   By kcross on Home Depot - Jan 19, 2007   

I purchased one of these auto wrenches for my husband for this past Christmas (2006). Although they were out of stock at the store the employee suggested I order on-line, I did, he received it and he LOVES it. He is a man with many tools, yet any new tool is worth trying. He has and on the first use he smiled. For him that means he loves it. It does exactly what it is advertised to do which means everything. He has converted our 3rd garage in to his work shop which in comparison to a women is like our clothes closet. All the hand tool favorites are at easy access which is on the peg board above his work bench. That is where the wrench is. It is not always easy to find a gift for a man who does not want much, except every tool made, so this was a big success in my mind. The price was very appropriate and I look forward to watching his satisfaction every time he uses it. I thank you very much.
