Ridgid 18V Brushless 4-1/2 Angle Grinder

I always look at Ridgid as a sleeping giant.  Ridgid has some great tools, but they are not on everyone’s radar.  If you have been watching us for a while, you have probably seen some of our tool fights.  We usually have Ridgid mixed in the fight and almost every time they have come out on top.  They are just quality tools and they don’t beat you up on price.  Since they aren’t on everyone’s radar, I wanted to show off the Ridgid 18V 4-1/2″ angle grinder. Ridgid designed this with a brushless motor which means it’s more efficient,...

Hilti – 3 New Drills Preview

If you have been following us for a while, you know Hilti is one of my favorite brands on the market.  Over the years I have had a chance to use them when I was in construction.  The one thing I can say is they are worth every penny.  Hilti is a little different since they sell directly to the consumer and not the normal path of a distributor.

Weather Guard Truck Box Review – Saddle Box Style

Having a truck for work is crucial.  On any given day, you have no idea what you will be hauling around.  Having the bed in the back is great and makes your life so much easier.  However, there is one small problem or price we have to pay for the ability to have an open bed.  We lose the ability to securely store and transport certain items.  Now if you have a crew cab, sure you have some room to lock up your tools, but for a single cab, how do you lock your stuff up and protect it?  As...

Weather Guard Remote – Quick Draw Remote Access System

If you have been following Tools in Action for a while, you know we are huge fans of Weather Guard truck boxes.  In fact, they have won a couple of TIA awards over the years.  These boxes are tough and as the name implies, they protect your things from the weather.  In our opinion, there isn’t any other box on the market that is built to the high-quality standards as Weather Guard.  As much as we love Weather Guard, that’s not why we are here today.  Well, actually it’s part of the reason.  But we recently found out Weather Guard...
