.......the thread title says it all.

Can be any type of tool- power, hand etc.

Mine has to be the Cordless Mixer. Mixes up a few bags of adhesive on one battery. Love it.

Has to be for me my concrete grinder and dust extraction. .
It's saved me so much time flattening high spots on walls and floors and cleaning up old adhesive off floors and walls even stubborn pain on plaster

I like my new floorlayers pants with the stretchy knees. They make work more comfortable.

Do these Snickers trousers last better than Scruffs etc?

Are they worth the premium?

Tiling tool Sigma cutter.
Other tool my 12v Bosch mini circular saw, still on its original blade with a tooth missing and still cuts clean after a good 2.7 years, needed to rough cut a 40mm worktop and it flew through okay you need to turn it over and cut through both side but the first cut acts as a guide.

A no brainer tool purchase really as its much safer than its bigger brothers.

I’ve seem that range of 12v gear from Bosch and it looks pretty good. I already have a couple of 12v batteries, a drill/driver and the impact driver and very nearly bought the mini circ. it looks really handy. They also do a little router, grinder and various other ‘mini’ tools. Very handy when working in small spaces. Quite tempted to get a few more bits bit really can’t buy any more gear as it’s getting silly now.

I’ve had 3 or 4 pairs of the old Snickers floorlayers with the bean kneepads but they are so heavy and feel like you are away to bat at the Oval. The Snickers flexi are light and the best fitted and comfortable trousers I’ve ever worn and the new X knee pads are thin and lightweight but stay in place and very comfortable and don’t crush or flatten over time

I’m not sure if I have tried this exact style but have had many pairs of the floor layers (kevlar woven i to kneed section)
And others. The knees do last well. I could go through the knees in most work trousers in 1-2 months. The snickers would last 6+ so probably no more expensive in the long run. Trouble is after 6 months they look crap as covered in, Adhesive, grip fill, silicone, blood, sweat and tears.

If we're including clothes,it would have to be my two pairs of dewalt work shorts from screwfix in the summer along with my new snickers floor layer trousers.got to be comfy in work.
Tool wise,it would be the refina megamixer to replace my last one which was at least fifteen years old.I tried a cheaper mixer from topps tiles( with my topps points )but within week was on he phone to refina to order my new whisk.
