Mine is my stream light. If I don't have that I feel useless. Other lights just aren't the same. A close second are my 1/4 cordless matco impact and ratchet. uploadfromtaptalk1437602091750.jpguploadfromtaptalk1437602100665.JPG

This isn't really a tool, but it is a very important piece of equipment for doing transmission rebuilds. It is a cooler flushing machine that gets out all the crap that goes into a cooler when a transmission fails. Here's a short video of it in action with a brief description of how it works and a picture of what came out of it on the first flush.

This is a good thread! I love the kent moore injector pullers and return line kits for when I'm doing that stuff but for broad range of work my snappy stuff keeps me from going crazy. The CTR761A 3/8 lithium ratchet and CT8810 3/8 cordless impact see so much use they look 20 years old even with boots.

Working on 95% stock duramax trucks for a living is different is pretty boring but I get to see all the new stuff when it trickles down to the dealers. Excited to see the new colorado and 16 silvys

Any good 3/8 impact, snap off currently & a set of metric and std. wobble sockets... I took all my cordless stuff home, In my line of work there just not powerful enough, work great at the house though.

Right now it is a close tie between my Makita impact driver and my Topside Creeper (man that thing saves your back).

That little Makita has plenty of ass for the majority of nuts/bolts that I encounter. It wont pull a lug nut off of course, but for smaller stuff it is so much faster.

Working graveyard shift, outside alot...this is my most useful tool. Turns night time into daytime. Eagle tac D25LC2. Runs off of 2 CR123's or 1-18650 Li-on batteries. Hard to beat eagle tac, you get a whole lot of light for their price tags. This one is about $55.

I love my 3/4 drive high torque Milwaukee impact. If something really doesn't want to give I have a 42" 1" drive breaker bar. It weighs like 50 pounds.

The d25 is a great light. You're right, can't really beat them for the money. Fenix is also a good bet. I mostly have surefire and olights though. Along with some custom ones.

Curious to see what you use out in the field though. Our excavators have some crazy bolts I can only imagine what you've got there. The 1" air impact usually takes everything off.

I've broken the snout off my fair share of those 1/2" kobalt flex head ratchets. My 1/2" harbor freight breaker bars long out lives them lol

Hytorc for the really stuck or tight stuff. 1" impact, Industrial IR titanium is a runner, although Atlas Copco is building a beast of a gun as well.
