Your Tool Experts for Power Tools
Auto mechanics use a lot of different tools in the garage when repairing cars & motorbikes. Power Tools make a tremendous difference to this work by being stronger, faster and often doing tasks that the mechanic couldn’t without them.
This improved efficiency means that power tools are indispensable for the modern auto mechanic and whilst electric power tools are an improvement over non-electric hand tools, air tools and air compressors are even better.
Power tools improve efficiency by speeding up repetitive tasks like nailing and fastening nuts & bolts. On occasions, using a power tool can be better than using the equivalent hand tool. Power tools are an integral aspect of any mechanic’s work and significantly improve auto repairs and maintenance.

There is an extensive selection of auto power tools, including demolition tools, electric saws, drills, drivers, glue & heat guns, grinders and many more, the following are just some examples.
Drivers are one of the most popular power tool for mechanics, used for a range of tasks, including tightening and loosening fasteners, eliminating the need for hand-driven screwdrivers. The common types of driver used by mechanics are electric screwdrivers and impact drivers but choosing the right tool often comes down to the torque requirements, vital to ensure the correct amount of force is used.
Drills tend to be used to make holes, allowing fasteners, nuts, bolts and screws to be inserted, allowing multiple elements to be joined. Drill and drill bit choice is important to ensure the selection matches the material, whether this be metal (bodywork), wood, cement or something else.
Saws & Grinders
Auto repairs often require body panels to be cut, smoothed, sanded and finished, which is where Saws and Grinders come in. Motor restoration projects tend to need heavy-duty power tools like these as there is usually plenty of rusted panel damage.
