Grand Prize Winner Receives a 2015 Ford F-150 Truck
December 2, 2014
IRWIN® Tools has announced the launch of its Ultimate Tradesman Contest. Community members throughout North America are invited to nominate themselves, or a tradesperson in their community, to become IRWIN’s Ultimate Tradesman for the chance to win a new Ford F-150 truck and one of nine monthly prizes worth up to $250.
When tool collector Dan Schmidt heard about a Klein Tools-sponsored contest rewarding the oldest pair of Klein pliers, he felt compelled to find the potential winning pair. Much to his surprise, a pair of pliers manufactured in 1904 that he purchased for $3 in March emerged as the eldest tool.
When working in confined or hard-to-reach areas, the Cobra® Quick Set, which has been added to the Cobra water pump pliers family, gives the user the ability to get the job done easily and efficiently. To adjust the tool, the user can slide the top handle forward to achieve the desired capacity.
Each year, as technicians add new tools to their box, many not only consider durability and cost, but are also looking for something to make their job easier. Making the job easier was a prevailing theme of The NEWS’ ninth annual Dealer Design Awards’ Tools category winners.
