A tradie is nothing without their tools. Having the right tools for the job can go a long way in making work much easier and more efficient. However, with such a wide variety of tools available, it can be difficult to know which ones are worth investing in and what the best uses for each one might be. No matter whether you’re looking for saws, drills, hammers or tape guns, there are tools that will make your life on the job so much easier.

There are many different tool manufacturers, the most popular of which are Makita, DeWalt and Hitachi. These brands have been around for quite some time now, and have proven themselves as reliable and trustworthy. All three brands feature hand tools and power tools, as well as power tool accessories that are compatible with most, if not all of their tools.

Makita tools are especially popular amongst tradies and DIY-ers, simply because they’re very durable and feature a lot of high-quality products at reasonable prices. You’ll find Makita tools for every job, whether it’s a simple drill or an industrial saw. Another reason why so many people choose Makita is because of their range of cordless tools, which are compatible with the all-new 18V LXT and 4Ah batteries, as well as the NiMH batteries that they previously used. Here are some of their most popular tools:
