Top Tool Tips from Master to Apprentice

16 April 2022

When it comes to getting the job done right the first time you need knowledge, skills and some high-quality tools. 

Tradies often choose brands based on where they are in their career, opting for higher-quality tools as they become more experienced.

However, this strategy isn’t the best way to get value for your money. 

Instead, you should choose tool brands that are: 

  • Well-known for their durability. 
  • High-quality and improve your workmanship from the beginning.
  • Designed for performance.

The good news is we know four brands that can help you get any job done and will last you a lifetime. 

1. Bahco

Bahco is an internationally-renowned brand with over 160 years of history. The company’s founder, Göran Fredrik Göransson, got his start in the tool industry by producing high-quality steel which eventually led to the development of saw blades. 

Through its rich history, Bahco has developed cutting-edge trade tools that surpass international standards and help tradies perform high-quality work. 

Some of Bahco’s most popular tools include: 

  • Cable Cutters
  • Foldable Pruning Saws
  • Heavy Duty Hedge Shears

But regardless of which tools you need, you can rest assured that Bahco’s quality has you covered.

2. Crescent

Crescent Tools are well-known around the world for quality and innovation. The tool manufacturer has a reputation for unique tool designs that change the way tradespeople do their work. 

Due to Crescent’s popularity with tradies, they’ve expanded their brand to include partnerships, such as: 

  • Crescent Lufkin®
  • Crescent Wiss®
  • Crescent Nicholson®
  • Crescent H.K. Porter®

Which combines hundreds of years worth of tool-making experience with a selection of over 2,600 high-quality tools.

3. Dewalt

Celebrating their 100th anniversary this year, Dewalt is a trusted name for tradies. Getting its start with woodworking machinery, the company expanded their products to meet the rapidly increasing demand for power tools. 

These days, they continue to create innovative power tools, hand tools and more. 

Some of Dewalt’s most popular tools and accessories include: 

  • Saw stands
  • Sanders and polishers
  • Compound saws

And much more. On top of this, the tool manufacturer provides a range of warranties from three years all the way up to a lifetime guarantee. 

4. Sidchrome

Sidchrome is a well-known Aussie tool brand that originated in Melbourne. Compared to the other brands on this list, Sidchrome is more of a specialist, focusing solely on auto mechanics tools.

However, that’s allowed the company to become one of the top brands in the marketplace. 

They offer patented features that you won’t find anywhere else, including their: 


So whether you need a single spanner or a whole toolkit, Sidchrome has every tradie covered. 

High-Quality Trade Tools Equals High-Quality Work

There’s a reason tradies choose the tools we mentioned above. High-quality tools help you get the job done faster and to a better standard. Plus, they don’t break down on you when you need them the most.
