Q: How can I get the most out of my tool purchase?
A:A valuable tool is one that is compatible across the most common tasks in the automotive industry whether it’s suspension work, brake work or changing tires. During the buying process, it’s beneficial to look for one multi-purpose and adaptable power tool that can help accomplish these tasks and avoid the tedious need to switch.
For example, the Ingersoll Rand W5132 impact wrench has four power and control settings, from hand tight to max power, so you don’t have to switch tools to complete multiple tasks. With each setting operating at maximum reverse torque, there’s no need to adjust settings to remove a stubborn fastener.
When filling your toolbox, it’s important to consider what you will use on a daily basis in the shop. According to our research, more than one-third of technicians use a cordless impact wrench every day. Cordless tools allow you to move freely without the inconvenience of bulky air and hydraulic hoses. An ideal cordless tool is one that has the same power as a pneumatic and provides the technician with an ergonomic design.
A tool needs to help technicians with the toughest jobs they face. At the end of the day, having tools you can count on to get the job done right, fast and on time is all that matters.
