The cranes used Dayton wheels due to less room allowed by the planetary drive on the drivers. They were a good strong system but a pain in the keister to line up on such a big and heavy tire.

Learn something new everyday. Thanks for mentioning that !

Back in the day when I was around semis and cranes we kept the attached tool in every truck for changing Budd wheels. Many times that tool saved the day but they are somewhat expensive. Ken-Tool Power Wrench Sets for Truck, Farm, Buses, Aircraft, RV's All Tire Supply

It's all relative. If you have a $200k truck not earning it's keep due to a flat tire, a $500 torque magnifier isn't that expensive. Plus, you buy it once where a service truck has to be paid for each time it is used.

You should make your own. You have the mill/lathe combo and a welder. What else could you possibly need?

Keep in mind, the torque multipliers you linked only multiple torque, they don't hold the inner nut with the square head from turning like the one in the link I posted. If all you want to do is multiply torque then use a longer cheater pipe. But that won't help if the outer nut has seized on the inner nut.

Darn I didn't think of that, I'll have to factor that in on my rebuild mod, always someone to throw a monkey in the wrench......
