Your Thoughts?

8 posts in this topic

I am a student of the construction electricity program at MCTC and we have to purchase all of our tools soon. We get a discount through a distributor on Greenlee, Ideal, and Klein tools. I was wondering if you guys had any preferences on any of these brands. One electrician i know said greenlee is garbage and Klein and Ideal are the way to go. Thanks for any thoughts.

From what I've experienced, Klein tools are far better. Warranty and all. They hold up very good. Easy to find as well. A little more expensive but worth it in the long run.

for your most used - most valuable tools choose the best quality that you can. For your less used - less critical tools you can go with something more affordable (i.e HF, Craftsman, etc). I like the Klien tools I've used and that's what I look for in the few sparky tools I own.

As a electrician for a number of years, go Klein, you won't be disappointed.

As an electrician I have very few tools that are not Klien. I'm not a big fan of Ideal and anything less than that is just junk in my opinion. I make all of my money (and you will too) with my tools, my hands and my brain. Of the three there is one you have control over, why not get the tools that makes the other two's job easier.

My dad is a retired construction eletrician and he has a bunch of Klein tools. Me, I didn't know why, but now I know.
