ATI's Top Tools for Electricians

Whether you’re repairing a damaged electrical cable or performing maintenance on a portable power system, keeping your tool bag filled with specialized tools for electricians helps you to safely and effectively complete your tasks. Both novice apprentices and seasoned electricians can both agree that having the appropriate tools can make your work smoother and more productive. As Portable Power Experts, we’ve added plenty of handy-dandy tools on our website to help you stay ready to tackle any project.

Why the Right Tools Matter

At times it may be tempting to grab generic tools from your local hardware store and head over to the jobsite. However, using the right tools not only makes your job easier, but they also ensure that the job gets done correctly. Tools that are specifically designed for electricians are unique for their day-to-day tasks. For instance, electrical hand tools include special features such as insulated handles and tailored blades to speed up the process and help you to complete your job faster.

By using tools designed for electrical pros, you can also dial back your risk of getting injured while at work. I’m sure we can all agree that working with wires, sharp electrical panels, and electricity comes with inherent risks. These risks are compounded by the potential for electrical shocks, accidental cuts, and other occupational hazards. Luckily, electrical tools are developed to tackle each of these safety concerns head on. As an added bonus, they also do a great job of making sure that the electrical equipment you’re working with doesn’t accidentally get damaged.

These pre-printed wire markers are constructed of vinyl-infused cloth with a natural rubber adhesive and peel-resistant topcoat for long-lasting visibility.

Generac Liquid-Cooled Standby Generator Maintenance Kits 

As fellow electrical professionals, we all know that generators are the cornerstone of all emergency power systems. While standby generators are a sophisticated piece of machinery, over time components like oil filters, air filters, and spark plugs can wear out and negatively affect the generator’s performance. To prevent this from happening, we recommend performing maintenance every 2 years or after 200 operating hours - whichever comes first. However, recommended maintenance intervals can vary quite a bit between different generator models, so be sure to double check the owner’s manual for detailed instructions.
