Dino Paoli SRL was founded in Italy in 1967, with the aim to provide industrial impact wrenches. As the founder; Mr. Paoli, was watching Formula 1 in 1975, he noticed that the impact wrenches used by the Ferrari team was a typical industrial one. He knew that he could do better, so on the Monday after that race weekend he called Enzo Ferrari himself, promising him that he would deliver an impact wrench like no other.

After months of iterations and versions, Dino Paoli brought the wheel gun to the paddocks and changed pit stops forever. The purpose-built impact wrenches outperformed all the competition and defined the wheel guns on every paddock. In just a few years, the name Paoli became a synonym for wheel guns and it has remained at the top of the motorsports game ever since.
