Tool Balancers

Tool balancers also known as spring balancers, power tool holders or power tool assists are designed to hold and counterbalance tools in a pre-set position making them weightless during use. The tool balancer comprises a reel containing an extendable support cable that is suspended from an overhead line or connected to a fitting in the workplace. The tool is then connected to the tool balancer by a suspension hook. A tensioning spring inside the balancer is finely adjusted to the weight of the tool using a tensioning knob. Tool balancers are available with different load capacities and cable travel lengths.


Benefits of using Tool Balancers


  • Provides weightless operation of tools
  • Increases operator comfort and decreases fatigue
  • Increases productivity allowing the use of tool over long periods of time
  • Keeps tool away from work area when not needed
  • Prevents tools from being dropped onto the floor and damaged
  • Easy to adjust using an integrated tensioner
