We know that being a technician can be messy and leaving the shop at the end of the day means dirty hands covered in oil and grease. Washing your hands between every job isn’t a possibility, so you need tools that are strong, durable and won’t slip out of your hands. Matco’s Top Torque II screwdrivers give you the grip you need when you need it most.

They’re strong. Matco’s Top Torque II screwdrivers are made with the best steel available. Produced from German specialty high alloy Chrome vanadium steel, our screwdrivers give the user a lightweight tool that is strong, long-lasting and ready to take on the toughest jobs.

It's what's inside that matters. All of our Top Torque II screwdrivers feature a forged-in, butterfly shaped blade deep inside the 3-layer, molded-on handle. This molded-in blade cannot be pulled out, pounded through or twisted in the handle. Although you cannot see this feature, rest assured it’s there providing durability and strength at every turn.

Ultimate turning power. Each handle on our Top Torque II screwdrivers features patented flocking on the sides. This is the fuzzy 

Why Matco’s Top Torque II Screwdrivers?material that gives you a vice grip in slippery situations. Regardless of how much oil, grease or sweat is on your hands, our Top Torque II screwdrivers give you the grip to get the job done.

The handle shape is designed specifically for the task at hand.

The Toughest Tool Boxes Just Got More Powerful

Posted by Nicole Gennarelli

If you want power, you want Matco.

As the traditional automotive shop evolves, so does storage and tool boxes that technicians use on a daily basis. That’s why Matco’s Power Toolboxes are different from the rest.

Because Matco knows it’s not just about power; it’s about how you use it, where you put it and when you need it.

All Matco Toolboxes 25" and deeper now come with power and have exposed USB and grounded outlets right in the front, making it easier to plug in tools and personal devices while providing optimal work space on top. Designed with the technician in mind, a second built-in power strip is available in the side drawer.

The Power-Integrated Toolboxes come with the same flexible options and add-ons that allow customers to design their own toolbox to fit different spaces and needs. With several color and trim options, a Matco toolbox is a reflection of individuality. Matco is the only mobile tool company that currently offers the complete power storage solution, starting with an entry-level toolbox continuing through the line of hutches and side lockers. This extensive offering makes Matco’s toolboxes the most obtainable for every tech in the industry.

“With technology advancing at a rapid pace, we want to make sure our products always allow consumers to work effectively and efficiently,” said John Green, Vice President of Marketing and e-Commerce for Matco Tools. “Having multiple power sources for technicians to constantly charge devices and tools maximizes their output. These new boxes are practical, flexible and designed with the technician in mind.”

At Matco Tools, we build trust and craftsmanship into each storage unit assembled at our Jamestown, New York facility. Each Matco toolbox features our T-shaped center shelf that is fully welded to all sides for brute strength and total stability.

From the standard 4s to the ultimate 6s, Matco has the industry’s best toolbox for every technician. And now, with the addition of power, Matco toolboxes just got even better.

For more information and to see the many different options available to customize your toolbox, see your Matco distributor.

Air Saw Technology: Expectations vs. Reality

Posted by Gina Zimmerman

Matco Tools’ product lineup now includes the MT2219 Gear Driven Air Saw, offering technicians the most powerful air saw on the market. The technologically-advanced MT2219 functions like a standard air saw, but has one key difference—a geared mechanism that produces additional torque, providing 87% more power than competitor saws while improving speed and efficiency.

Matco's Geared Air Saw (MT2219) vs. Standard Air Saw

The MT2219 features a patent-pending, gear-transmitted design that provides more than double the cutting capacity over standard air saws. The saw can cut through up to 5mm of sheet metal and even steel tubes more efficiently, providing users with more power to save time. A 360-degree swivel exhaust ring directs air flow away from the technician, and a variable speed trigger provides complete control in every job at hand.

It is always our goal to produce tools that make our customers’ job as easy as possible,” said Jody Baker, product manager at Matco Tools. “The MT2219 does just that by combining speed, power and durability into one easy-to-use air saw. Matco prides itself on creating tools that will deliver performance when it’s needed most, and this air saw is no exception.”

The MT2219 is not only the most powerful air saw on the market, but also one of the most long-lasting and comfortable. The greasable fitting allows the tool to be easily maintained, extending its life.  Plus, the nylon composite housing with an ergonomically designed handle creates a lightweight, balanced tool for less user fatigue and more comfortable operation for the long haul.

The MT2219 is available now exclusively from Matco Tools. To locate a distributor in your area or for more information on the product, call 1-866-289-8665 or check out our selection of air saws on our website.
