This is one big mamba jamba adjustable wrench - 24 inch size, 2.5 inch jaw capacity. I have an 18 incher and wasn't quite sure what I would do with one this big, but found it useful to counter hold a big plumbing fitting that I needed to tighten up.
I like that the jaws are nicely machined and are very flat and parallel. It has a hole at the end of the handle to attach to a tether if needed.
It is marked as Made in Spain.
The only thing it doesn't have that would be nice is scale markings to see what size the jaws are set to. not a big deal of course.

Professional quality wrench for serious work. BIG yet right-priced. Well made, should last a lifetime.
I own many adjustable wrenches. This one compares well to my favorites, some made a long time ago when mechanics lived by their wrenches. This one works smoothly, is very well-finished on the working surfaces and smooth all over, kind to the hands.
This type of adjustable wrench has been around over a century, Johansson 1892 and Peterson 1915. Works just as good today as it did for our grandfathers.
One correction: while this is sold as up to 2-1/2 in, mine opens to 2-7/16 inch.
This wrench is made in Spain. Not Chicago, not China. In the last 30 years Spain has been building on its traditional strength in metal-working. Spain is now strong in machine tools and auto production, and the tools to support those industries. Workers in Spain enjoy collective bargaining with court oversight, no sweat-shops. Look-up "Irega Manufacturing" to see videos of a modern Spanish tool factory.

This is a nice heavy-duty adjustable wrench. The build quality is excellent.
The jaw opens to 2 1/2 inches. For larger nuts and bolts, this wrench is excellent in order to handle a variety of nut/bolt sizes without needing to bring a set of huge sockets. The jaw does not wiggle within the wrench head. I like the precision fit of the jaw into the wrench so there isn't play as the jaw is adjusted from completely closed to its widest opening. That is something I see in cheaper small adjustable wrenches.
The adjusting wheel of the wrench is also fit tightly into the wrench so there isn't play while adjusting the jaw width.
There is a hole at the handle end of the wrench to hang the tool while in storage.
Chrome plating is nice throughout.
I've taken photos with a see-though ruler so you can see the dimensions of the wrench head and jaw. Total length of the entire wrench is a bit under 24 inches.
This wrench is ideally suited for use in an industrial/commercial capacity, but also is suited for use by the DIY person or contractor who works on home, farm, construction, plumbing or motor vehicle repair projects.

I've owned probably a dozen or more adjustable wrenches over the years but never one as well-made as this 1-11/16 by 15 inch Standard Capacity Adjustable Wrench made by Klein Tools. The machine work and finish of this wrench is outstanding and it opens and closes as smooth as butter. Even the tapered shape of the handle bespeaks the extra thought that went into its design. I've included a photo of one of my old standard adjustable wrenches next to this one so you can see the difference in their quality. While this wrench is more expensice than your average adjustable wrench, its high quality should last a lifetime of use. Unlike most wrenches that are made in China these days, this is made in Spain.

The name KLEIN TOOLS is synonymous with high quality professional grade tools and this adjustable wrench is no exception. It is forged from strong, heat-treated steel alloy for exceptional strength. It has an overall length of 15 7/8” with a jaw capacity of 1 11/16”. I found the jaws move easily and smoothly with a nicely machined knarled adjustment screw drive. What separates this high quality wrench from others, ultimately, is not only the materials and machining quality but the precision with which the jaws operate. For maximum grip, the jaws need to maintain contact with the entire surface area on parallel sides of a nut when engaged. The adjustable jaws on this wrench stay perfectly parallel to one another throughout its range of motion delivering that maximum grip. Please see attached pictures where I’ve highlighted this point. If you need one of the very best adjustable wrenches available, you need not look further than this KLEIN TOOLS adjustable wrench.

Klein does it again. This is a solid wrench. The only wish on my list is that I wanted the mouth to expand beyond the beyond the 43mm mark. It holds position very well. I plan on using it to change out some over-oxidized handles on my water meter. 15 inches gives you great leverage when you need to torque an object down. What you can't notice by simply looking at it, is that is has really good grip and is really ergonomic for your hands whether you choose to wear gloves or not.

This very high-quality Klein Tools adjustable wrench is made in Spain by Irega, who make high-quality adjustables that are rebranded by many of the best names in tools.
This is a quality tool, through and through. Well-forged, well-machined. Hand-assembled. Very little slop in the jaws. This is a tool that will last you a lifetime, no question about it.

The 2-1/16 in. standard capacity adjustable wrench is as solid as you could ever want. This thing is solid and heavy but very well balanced so that it is easy to handle. The adjustable cylinder for opening and closing the mouth is very easy to operate and there is no slippage. The handle feels long which is great because you can really get a lot of torque with the extended reach. You can always fit a screw driver in the end to get even more torque but I don't know that you would ever need it.

I am not a fan of using adjustable wrenches on anything big or small, probably due to being told as a boy to find the right wrench for the job. This Klein wrench has changed my mind for some things for sure. It is very well built and the jaw adjustment feels really good. The jaw slides well on the main body of the wrench and stays where you adjust it. I used it to install and remove tow balls of and on some hitches of different sizes, even put a piece of pipe over it to use as an advantage with no issues. This adjustable wrench is a keeper.

I love this adjustable wrench. I own a number of adjustable wrenches. None are the size and weight of this one. So many times I have run into a nut or bolt bigger than any of my open-end/box-end, or adjustable wrenches. This baby definitely can handle the big ones. Big 18" handle and 2 1/2" jaw opening. I would definitely recommend this wrench for those large size nuts and bolts.
