Mechanics Tool Kit: What's Inside.

Milwaukee mechanics tool kit

There's a short list of “must have” tools that every mechanic needs, regardless of how many new specialised tools are developed within the automotive industry. Here at SGS we've partnered up with Milwaukee to create three tailor made Mechanic's tool kit packaged in either a Milwaukee packout 40cm tote tool bag, a Milwaukee packout 50cm tote tool bag or a SGS 26" professional 14 drawer tool chest & roller cabinet
for easy transportation.

Impact Wrench

Milwaukee impact wrench

An impact wrench can make quick work of removing lug nuts as it can drive nuts in an instant. Impact wrenches supply additional force in cases where more power is required, where a high torque output is needed. Impact wrenches get their immense torque from a hammering mechanism in the tool that delivers strong concussive blows extremely quickly.

Socket Set

Socket set

Offering sizes of 17mm, 19mm and 21mm with a ½” square drive, most automotive services will require these sizes for wheel nuts. This set covers a large section of the passenger vehicle market. Each socket features a plastic retainer inside to prevent damage to wheel nuts. While recessed corners allow torque to be transferred across the flats of the socket rather than producing stress on the points or corners.

Air Socket Set

A socket set is arguably the tool you'll need most in order to work on your car. The socket set has various uses especially in many automotive jobs. Make sure that you have both metric and imperial sizes as constantly having to convert is a pain. These tools have excellent amounts of torque.

Ratchet Set

Ratchets allow you to work with freedom, speed and accuracy. One of the best possible investments for your tool box.​Socket-wise, you want to have from 6mm up to 19mm.

Multi Bit Screw Driver

You'll be hard pushed to get through life without needing the use of a screwdriver at some point, but as a mechanic it's important that you invest in a good quality screwdriver set or multi bit screw driver with a variety of heads. Most machinery and vehicles will require the use of Phillips head screw driver but anything older is likely to have flat head screws.

Linesman Pliers

Linesman Pliers

Most mechanical jobs will require you to use some sort of pliers. From brakes to removing electric connectors, pliers are a must. There are a ton of electrical projects you can take on with a vehicle, such as, installing a stereo head unit, speakers, or wiring new headlights. You'll need pliers of various sizes to achieve this, as well as wire cutters and wire strippers.

Aviation Snips

Aviation snips

Aviation snips are a type of shears used for snipping sheet metal. Their long handles provide great leverage, and they're a really useful tool to have at hand when working on car body work and repairs .

Battery Twin Pack and Multi Voltage Charger

The batteries use Redlithium™ technology which delivers more work per charge and more work over the life of the pack. They also feature a temperature Management System which keeps the battery at the ideal temperature alongside individual cell monitoring which helps to provide maximum battery life whilst also preventing cell damage. The remaining charge of the battery can be seen on the fuel gauge.
