Molded Coolant Hose Gates - Marlin Good, Owner/Technician at Cascade Automotive Repair and Services, Inc.
Generally acceptable to great fit, but not reliable enough to depend on in unfamiliar applications. Quality is fair, but they definitely do not have the life span of most OE hoses. They are generally acceptable for older vehicle with fairly short life expectancy.
DriveAlign Idler Pulleys Gates - Marlin Good, Owner/Technician at Cascade Automotive Repair and Services, Inc.
These pulleys are very hit and miss on quality, primarily based on bearing quality. The actual pulleys are of good quality regardless of whether a good quality or low quality bearing is installed. They do usually fit acceptably well, so that helps.
1/8" x 3" Double End Drill Point The Original Rescue Bit - Justin Hartman, Consultant/Technician at Jackson's Auto Care
Let me start off by stating that I almost never review anything, but THIS TOOL REQUIRES YOUR ATTENTION. I bought it directly from the company through their website. Shipping was prompt. It is very seldom that I find something that works as well as advertised, as well as I need it to, and surprises me with its effectiveness. This tool does all of that. I used this on an exhaust stud in the cylinder head on a Ford V10. The extraction attempt had Read more...

Maximus Matco Tools - Tony Todd, Technician/Shop Foreman at Hemann Automotive
This is not a very good scanner. Had one for a year or two. We had to send it in 2 times for screen problems. Autel scanner is way better . maxisys elite is what I'm using now and I love this thing!
Maximus Matco Tools - Alex Ewing, Manager/Technician at Tony and Brothers
I tried a demo Maximus a year ago and it was alright. I liked the scanner overall but not for the price point it was offered at. Well, I tried a demo unit again this year and got a lot of use from it this time around. I was offered to buy it at a competitive price and decided to jump on it. Not sure if older ones were Windows based but this Maximus 2.0 is Android based. I work exclusively on European cars and so far the scanner has done what I n Read more...

System Smart Belt Education Display Gates - Ted Terra, Technician at Elec-Tech Auto Repair
Although this is a great display for customer education or to illustrate your discussion, you should think twice before having it on the counter. As a technician with a bit of an perfectionist streak (that or OCD), it drives me completely batty that the number of cogs on the cam and crank sprockets do not have the correct 2:1 ratio. Also, I can't find the alignment marks. If you can overlook these shortcomings, this is and absolutely excellent Read more...
PowerProbe 4 Power Probe TeK - Jordan Sillman, Technician at Jordan Sillman
This tool is super quick for many basic circuit problem. The long lead is handy to get you to the back of the car so every volt-drop test you do is referenced from the battery. The auxiliary negative wire has a female banana jack so if its time to break out a scope just plug in to that for a battery referenced ground anywhere. The high and low tones are great for cramped areas or wiggle testing harness or circuit activation where the screen can' Read more...
