Spend time looking through our selection of tools and test plugs. Either sourced from USA and Germany or designed and made in NZ for you.

The Chief range of tools are designed for the professional trades. Sourced from the USA, these are heavy duty and fit for everyday use by those working hard out in their field. Featuring shovels, spades, picks, crowbars, hammers, sledgehammers, rakes, asphalt lutes and brooms that the discerning contractor will recognise as durable and tough.

All Chief shovels and spades feature a 14-gauge blade for longer life and most feature the blade, socket and shank forged from one piece. Chief picks, bars and mattocks all come with fibreglass handless for maximum strength. An integrally moulded handle guard provides permanent overstrike protection.

The Brave range of tools are designed for weekend warriors. Shovels, spades and rakes that will impress every DIYer out there.

All of our Apache Tools (Chief and Brave) come with a lifetime guarantee. Download our warranty here.

We also stock a range of tools made in New Zealand especially created for New Zealand jobs and conditions. Our manhole cover lifters exert 1 tonne of force with a simple push, so that you don’t have to. Watch our how-to video here. These come with a range of keys to fit all New Zealand manholes. We also stock manhole prybars with a key option.

Apply spray paint in a straight line easily with our paint applicators. Either hand-held or on a trolley, these work perfectly with our range of aerosol paint. Check out our range of paint colours here.

Test your pipework with our range of test plugs and cushions from 80mm to 3600mm. The sealing cushions can be used for sewage and rainwater pipes. Use them when repairing, for inspections, relining and pressure tests.

The pipe plugs are manufactured from high quality special rubber with a fabric reinforcement. They are the best solution for pipe shut-offs and pressure testing in small circular diameters up to 500mm.
