    I recommend the Yellow Jacket brand.

    Invest wisely, good tools are not cheap but well worth it.

    In this industry you are judged by the tools you utilize, so be professional.

    I would recommend staying away from CPS, and UEI

    I use the YJ 1.5 pump and highly recommend it.

    It depends on what you are buying, some products have higher end models that have more bells and whistles, but for the most part you cant go wrong with thier products.

    Takes time to build a good set of tools that you like. So don't rush it.
