You’ won’t be able to do the job right unless you have the right tools. While this goes for anything you might be trying to accomplish, it’s particularly true when it comes to the world of scrap metal. Turning old bits of machinery, car parts, and the like into scrap takes a lot of work, and a lot of heavy equipment. While the work itself is never easy, it’s made far easier when you’re using the best tools available. Here are 8 tools that are a must for any big time scrapper.
Husqvarna Demo Saw
If you’re looking for a demo saw, this is the real deal. Gas powered, it’s perfectly engineered to cut up metal. And while it can take some work to keep it steady, it’s very effective. It has no problem cutting through copper, thin grades of stainless steel, machined aluminum, as well as some types of ACRs.
DeWalt Air Compressor
Due to increased torque, air powered tools are some of the most effective at certain kinds of scrap jobs, like removing bolts. For you to take advantage of these kinds of tools, you’ll need a good air compressor, and this one is at the top of its class. Buying an accessory kit with attachments and hoses will make it easy to jump into using any air powered tool you have in mind.
An amazing device that can act as a power source to jumpstart cars, charge batteries when you need, and act as a radio when you just want some music.
Briggs & Stratton Generator
If you ever work out in a field or someplace away from a power source, you’ve got to have a generator. It’s able to power up the kinds of large appliances you need for jobs out on the field.
Simple, but effective, you’ll need something to move those big pieces for salvage removal, and this does the job.
You never know when you’re going to need something to pull heavy pieces of metal like cars or safes. A portable winch gives you the ability to do just that, and is a perfect piece of equipment if you own a trailer or a truck.
For those times when you need something more than a hand wrench or regular drill, you can turn to the impact wrench. If there’s a bolt that will not budge, this is the tool for the job. Also, it’s cordless, so you can take it anywhere without having to bring an air compressor. Make sure you get the socket set to go with it.
DeWalt Hammer Drill/Driver Set
These are basic tools, so you might be tempted to forgo a fancy set like this. However, you’ll need the very best for scrapping, and this set delivers. Get yourself a drill bit set to go with it, and you’ll have everything you need in one setup.
