3 Best Brands for Impact Socket Sets

by admin on February 21, 2018

Snap-on tools are high-end and best quality for professional use in the industry including automotive, marine, aviation, and railroad. They are very expensive. All hand tools come with a lifetime warranty. There are no retail shops. You can buy their tools online or from franchisees in a van loaded with their items. Because of high quality and its popularity, there are auctions on eBay every day. Most of them are pre-owned, but it doesn’t matter, you will get a lifetime warranty as well.

Craftsman tools are sold in Sears, Kmart, several other retailers, or online. It’s a mid-price brand and comparable to Husky from Home Depot, Kobalt from Lowes, and so on. Most hand tools come with a lifetime warranty. Unlike Snap-on, you can take a broken tool to the retail store, and you will get a replacement with either new or refurbished one for free. You don’t need a receipt or dated proof of purchase. Craftsman also has a lower-tier brand called Evolv, which replaced the brand called Companion in 2008. Evolv has much cheaper than Craftsman with low quality. And Evolv’s warranty program requires a receipt or dated proof of purchase.

Harbor Freight Tools is a discount tool and equipment retailer. Some of their tools are poor quality. But, when it comes to impact sockets and accessories, they are satisfactory and very reasonable. Pittsburgh Pro is the name of the brand for most of the impact tools and other hand tools. Even if you purchase all sets including SAE, Metric, 3/8″ drive, 1/2″ drive, swivel, extensions, adapters.. it won’t break your bank. They come with a lifetime warranty. You can take a broken tool to the store and get a new one for free. Harbor Freight Tools is a growing company. Currently, there are 800 stores in 47 states. It’s an advantage over Sears, which are closing many stores in recent years.
