Snap-on announced that it has been recognized as having the “Overall Best Power Tools in the United States” among its top competitors on the basis of Frost & Sullivan’s independent research, 2008 United States (U.S.) Automotive Technicians’ Choice: Evaluation of Automotive Tools.


Technicians gave high ratings to Snap-on by a wide margin in the power tool category. Thirty-one percent chose Snap-on as the best overall power tool, making this the second year in a row that Snap-on has led the category. Its closest competitor was chosen by 6 percent of respondents.


“We are truly honored to receive Frost & Sullivan’s Automotive Technician’s Choice Award for overall best power tools in the industry,” said Dave Manka, product manager for Snap-on. “One of Snap-on’s newest power tools is the talk of the industry, the 3/8-inch Drive Impact Wrench (MG325), which has service technicians buzzing about its power, speed and ease of use. This new wrench played a key role in our ranking as having the No. 1 power tools in the industry for the second year in a row.”
