I have been on something of a tool buying spree before Brexit & Covid sends prices up here in the UK I decided I wanted an additional proper heavy duty 3 ton jack. I found this Sealley300CXD jack very similar to the one of a different brand I have had for 20 plus years. Really heavy duty and good quality over the moon with it :-) Might be too heavy for mobile techs

This thing kicks ass! It's my go to for break jobs, cleaning the rust off the brackets.

It's got abrasive around the edge of the auger side as well and is suitable for cutting and grinding.
My friend at the shop bought his 3 years ago and it's still like new.

I guess that's why call me The Working Man.-

I have been treating myself to new impact wrenches --- massive improvement over the Sealey unit I was using which was big very  heavy and not that powerful.

The DeWalt is a DCF899N  - brushless very powerful  quite compact and well balanced with reall good fine control of speed and torque  -- it was a difficult choice between it and the equivalent Milwaukee anyway I couldn't find a UK seller with the 1/2" detent ball peen drive  Milwaukee in stock.

The Kielder is model KWT-002 3/8" drive very compact light brushless unit rated at 220nm torque so not overly powerful it has good speed and torque control control and feels well balanced.  Only a couple of niggling things: the silver finish has already picked up a couple of chips and one of the catches on the supplied plastic case  was broken on delivery .

That DeWalt is a good gun (if it's the the one I think it is).
Mac tools battery tools are red DeWalts, a lot of the guys I have worked with invested pretty heavily into them as the the Snap On stuff was getting old.
