Power Tools: 9 essential tools for your workshop

All car garages should have power tools in their tool box. But why? Because they provide comfort and well-being, as well as good results when executing tasks.

When the price of power tools is weighed against the return they provide and the time saved when performing tasks, there can be no doubt of their advantages. Therefore, the tools and these factors must be considered when considering investing in opening a car garage.

Find out what these are and the power tools essential for your workshop.


What are power tools?

A power tool is a tool powered by a power source.

Generally speaking, the most common types of power tools use electric motors.

This type of tool is, as has been said previously, a way of increasing the productivity of a garage, ensuring better results.



The main safety rules applied to power tools

To avoid incidents that arise due to power tools being mishandled, it is essential that you follow some safety rules:

  • Keep your workspace organised and clean;
  • Handle tools in well-lit areas;
  • Keep all guards in place and in good condition;
  • Do not use power tools in damp or wet locations;
  • Wear safety goggles when using the tools;
  • Whenever the tool is not in use or before it is serviced, unplug it and, if possible, store it in a tool cabinet;
  • If you accidentally cut a tool cord or damage its insulation, do not try to repair it at your own risk. Contact a power tool repair technician.


9 Essential power tools for professional use

To provide your customers with the best results, your tools must be up to scratch.

With this in mind, here are the 9 power tools you should have in your car garage:


1. Wireless Charging Dual Pad



It’s normal for some devices to run out of battery when in use. As such, it’s helpful to always have a charger on hand.

Our Dual Wireless Charger, which can be used on devices with wireless functionality, features nylon TPE coating and two 10W power outputs, allowing for two devices to be charged simultaneously, as well as a mobile phone connector.

2. Impact Wrench – one of the main power tools in a car garage



This is one of the most commonly used power tools in car garages. An impact wrench is used, in short, to tighten and loosen pressure screws thanks to its torque power.

An impact driver is the best tool to remove screws from plates when you cannot do so manually using ordinary tools.

The impact driver in the picture above has a charging voltage of 18V. Its battery fully charges in approximately 90 minutes.

However, charging time may vary depending on the ambient temperature and power source voltage.

3. Touch LED Light 



Whether to illuminate your entire work area or to signal the locations of tool carts (which is very useful in poorly lit areas), an LED lamp is the solution and another of the must-have power tools in your workshop.

Our 5W 500mm Touch LED lamp produces 380 Lumens and has a voltage of 100-240V AC.

4. Pen Lamp



Sometimes the lighting necessary to see specific car parts is lacking, making it difficult to make a correct diagnosis. When faced with this problem, an LED torch is the perfect solution.

Our Rechargeable 6+1 COB LED Pen Torch is fitted with 6 front LEDs, 1 Top LED and is powered by 3 MI-MH 3.6 V rechargeable batteries.

In addition, it can be charged via a USB cable.

5. LED Rechargeable Foldables Pocket Slimlight



This is, without a doubt, one of the power tools required in any mechanic’s garage. After all, choosing the right LED inspection flashlight gives you the lighting necessary to produce better final results when fitting or fixing specific car parts.

To ensure you have access to a device suitable for any situation, opt for a Slim 3-LED articulated, rechargeable inspection lamp.

By doing so, you can enjoy the lighting produced by a high-power COB LED lamp and the IP54 – IK 07 protection provided by this device.
