Electricians start collecting tools from day one and slowly but surely, they assemble a toolkit with all the essential tools of the trade. “Every electrician knows that a well-equipped tool bag is not a luxury – it’s a necessity,” says Werner Grobbelaar, sales manager at Major Tech.
“When investing in tools of the trade, the best advice is to always buy the best quality tools that you can afford,” he says. “And you can’t go wrong with Major Tech’s TBP5-9 – the first genuine backpack tool bag on the South African market for the professional tradesman – great quality at an affordable price.”
Grobbelaar says the specially designed tool backpack has been manufactured according to mining specifications and with electricians’ safety top of mind – from the reflective tape for visibility to the heavy duty construction for durability. “And the injection-moulded waterproof base keeps tools dry, even in the most extreme of conditions.”
There’s more: The TBP5-9 tool backpack easily transforms into a convenient portable ‘workstation’ and is an excellent solution for installers and repair technicians who need to carry tools and still have their hands free when climbing ladders or carrying bulky replacement parts. The backpack features a comfortable thermo-formed padded back panel that helps cushion the load while providing structural stability along with a padded load-displacing shoulder strap with multiple adjustable strap points and an ergonomic rubber grip.
When opened, the backpack’s removable inner sleeve features pockets of various sizes and configurations to hold a multitude of tools and small parts. A lot of thought went into design of the tool backpack and its contents were carefully selected: 22 high quality durable chrome vanadium steel tools that will last a lifetime.
Inside there are: 230 mm and 165 mm combination pliers; 215 mm diagonal cutting pliers; 200 mm and 165 mm long-nose pliers; and a fully insulated seven-piece 1000 V screwdriver set with corrosion-resistant tips for heavy duty professional use up to 1 000 V ac – all with soft-grip handles for maximum torque.
Other tools include a terminal driver; a utility knife; 160 mm wire stripper; 200 mm adjustable spanner; 100 g hammer; neon screwdriver tester; 150 mm junior hacksaw; a tape measure; and 38 mm cable shears – all neatly packed in a well-organised, space-saving and easy-to-carry backpack.
