Klein Tool Station Backpack

Klein Tool Station Backpack for Electricians

Greenlee G1 Versi-Tugger Wire Puller spooling rope

Greenlee G1 Versi-Tugger 1000-lb Wire Puller Review

The compact Greenlee G1 Versi-Tugger 1,000-lb wire puller is an excellent wire pulling tool for jobs of 1,000-lbs or less.  When it first showed up, most of the crew was surprised by its size.

Fluke Pack30 Professional Tool Backpack Review

Early in my career, I quickly learned the value of organized tools. Like a lot of guys, I started out using a big duffel to carry everything whether I need it that day or not. It’s heavy and disorganized, but it’s cheap. However, even the greenest apprentice can figure out that it’s actually disorganization that’s expensive on the […]
