Combi Drill

A combi drill is the perfect all rounder, most standard drills are only suitable for wood, plasterboard and metal. The combi drill has a hammer option used for hammering tougher materials such as concrete, brick and more, making the combi drill extremely versatile. Every home needs one of these amazing power tools

Impact Driver

The impact driver has more force than a standard drill, allowing you to drive faster and deeper while minimising the impact on your hands and wrists at the same time. The impact driver was designed to drive in a more controlled manner, the short pulses allow the tool to maintain better contact with the screw head, which means it’s less likely to strip your screw heads.

Hammer Drill

A hammer drill is designed to drill into harder materials such as stone, concrete, brick or mortar. When a hammer drill operates, it rotates like a normal drill while hammering at the same time. They are also great for removing tiles, mortar, tile adhesive and more.

Electric Screwdriver

An electric screwdriver is similar to a drill, but unlike a drill they can only fit drive bits (e.g phillips head, fat head). They are typically used for small jobs, such as constructing flat pack furniture and hanging pictures. They’re small and light so they’re much easier to carry around than a standard drill.


Heat guns simply blow very hot air, they are typically used for removing paint and welding or bending plastic. They have other great uses too, such as loosening old bolts and screws, lifting up flooring, drying out damp wood, removing adhesive and much more.#

Sheet Sander

The sheet sander is primarily used for light to moderate duty sanding tasks. Such as smoothing of the wood surface, sanding between coats of finish and smoothing of curved surfaces that are difficult to sand with larger, more powerful sanding tools.

Mouse Sander

Mouse Sanders are extremely compact and lightweight. The pointed edge allows you to reach those tight places with complete control and comfort. This sander is ideal for removal of paint and rust, cleaning glass, sanding in tight spaces and providing the finishing touches to your DIY projects.


Jigsaws are ideal when it comes to cutting curves and shapes in wood and metal. The blades are typically removable and come in different variants for different materials, such as wood, steel, fiberglass, and drywall. Most jigsaws can also be used to make angled cuts.

Angle Grinder

Angle Grinders can be used for a multitude of tasks, and make almost any DIY job easier. They can be used for cutting, grinding, deburring, stripping finishing, polishing and much more. Different cutting blades can be attached to cut different materials, from metal to concrete. An angle grinder is a must have tool if you enjoy DIY.

Reciprocating Saw

The primary use for a reciprocating saw is to cut and rip out the materials around doors, windows and when cutting through joists and plasterboard. They’re great for removing old window and door frames. They can be used with several different blades to cut through different materials.


A multi-tool lets you sand, saw and cut different materials with a handy all in one tool. There are several different attachments for any type of job you can think of. A multi-tool is a real must-have topl in everyone’s collection.
