Here are 3 tools that’ll step up any home mechanic’s game. These game-changing tools will make the self-taught mechanic feel and look like an expert mechanic.
Now I am quick admit that I am no gear head. In fact, my mechanical skill level is at a beginner level at best. However, I’ve been learning a lot from the ToolBox Dude and my brother- in- law who is a mechanic about basic things I can do to service my own vehicle and lawnmower. And recently I’ve had the opportunity to test out these 3 tools that I’ve found to be game changing mechanical tools that have definitely made me feel like a boss. Hahaha.
OK, Let’s jump into it.
To check out additional tool reviews consider the review of the Milwaukee M18 PACKOUT™ Radio/Speaker with Built-In Charger and Review of the Milwaukee M18 FUEL 16 in. 18-Volt Lithium-Ion Battery Brushless Cordless Chainsaw
The Milwaukee M12 FUEL 12-Volt Lithium-Ion Brushless Cordless 3/8 in. Extended Reach Ratchet Kit with One 2.0 Ah Batteries is not your grandpa’s old ratchet set. This game changing mechanical tool has power and is made to handle it. This cordless tool can go toe to toe with any pneumatic ratchet in performance, achieving up to 55 Ft-Lbs Max Torque. And it’s durable.
Other features of the Milwaukee M12 FUEL 12-Volt Lithium-Ion Brushless Cordless 3/8 in. Extended Reach Ratchet include:
- Its design gives it the longest reach in tight spaces. It’s 11″ in. length from the anvil to the hand.
- This rather has a Variable Speed Trigger for more control.
- And the REDLINK plus intelligence prevents damage to the tool and battery due to overloading or overheating.
I used this tool to remove and reinstall the blade of my lawnmower so I could sharpen the blade. And the Milwaukee M12 FUEL 12-Volt Lithium-Ion Brushless Cordless 3/8 in. Extended Reach Ratchet made this less of a chore. I was done in no time and back to cutting my grass.
No. 2 on my list is the Milwaukee M18 FUEL 18-Volt Lithium-Ion Brushless Cordless 1/2 in. Impact Wrench with Friction Ring Kit With Two 5.0 Ah Batteries. The M18 ½” HTIW KIT is a beast. This is a professional grade impact Wrench for sure. You will never need another pneumatic wrench in your life with this tool. I felt stronger using this impact wrench. Hahaha.
The M18 ½” HTIW KIT has up to 1400 ft. lbs. Nut-Busting Torque. And you can control that power with its 4-mode drive control with bolt removal mode. The bolt removal mode provides maximum nut-busting torque to break fastener free, then slows its down to 750 RPM for more control when removing fasteners.
I love it. I removed my car’s tire in record time. I’d never been able to remove a tire so fast until this tool. Milwaukee M18 FUEL 18-Volt Lithium-Ion Brushless Cordless 1/2 in. Impact Wrench with Friction Ring Kit comes with:
- One M18 5.0Ah Batteries
- Hard Case
- Charger Included
Husky 149-Piece Mechanics Tool Set
Finally, the 3rd Game-Changing mechanical tool is actually essential to the performance of the previously mentioned tools. It’s the bits for the rachet and the impact wrench. The Husky 1/4 in., 3/8 in. and 1/2 in. Drive Mechanics Tool Set is 149 piece kit that has sockets that both a M18 ½” HTIW KIT and the Milwaukee 3/8 in. Extended Reach Ratchet Kit.
This set comes with Set includes 25 standard length 3/8 in. drive 6-point sockets, 17 deep 3/8 in. drive 6-point sockets, and 19 standard length 1/2 in. drive 12-point sockets, along with a host of other sockets, wrenches and 44 other accessories.
