Summer Solstice at ToolStore UK

Summer Solstice at ToolStore UK

June 21st is the Summer Solstice, which marks the first day of astronomical summer both here in the UK and the Northern Hemisphere more generally. So, with summer finally here, you might be looking for tools, bags and gadgets to help you take advantage of the warmer months.

Getting adventure ready

June, July and August are great months for hitting the beach or exploring new places with the family. But if you’re heading off the beaten track or have a tribe of fussy eaters, you might want to take food with you. The DeWalt DS404 TOUGHSYSTEM Cooler Box provides five days ice retention, with IP65 rating for exceptional dust and water resistance. It also has an integrated bottle opener, dry tray and can holders on the lid.

Unlike the DS404, the Makita DCW180Z 18v 20L Cooler / Warmer Box draws on either battery or mains power, but this enables it to provide up to 17 hours of run time at 5°C, keep frozen food at -18°C for up to 5 hours or keep food warm at 60°C for up to 4 hours. It has seven temperature settings, a USB output port, plus a built-in bottle opener. Be aware that this tool is Body Only, meaning that it isn’t supplied with a battery.

Sometimes, a cooler box is too big for the items you want to take with you, but that doesn’t have to be a problem. We have other storage options available, with lunch bags and coolers among them.

If you like to pack your favourite tunes when hitting the beach, our range of cordless radios and speakers might be just what you need. While none of these machines could drown out a festival sound system, the DeWalt DCR009 Rechargeable USB-C Bluetooth Speaker packs a massive sound which belies its small size. Compact enough to be taken pretty much anywhere and easily rechargeable, this speaker is a great choice.

Most major power tool brands offer cordless radios and speakers and the raft of different battery options many can utilise, plus the increasing use of DAB+ and Bluetooth connectivity make them ideal for al fresco entertainment. For a more detailed look at the cordless radios and speakers we have available, check out our buyer’s guide to the best jobsite radios and work speakers.

Keeping the garden looking great

Our range of outdoor power tools can help you tackle any job in and around your garden. From cordless chainsaws to strimmers and brushcutters and everything in between, ToolStore UK has a wide choice of petrol-powered, battery-operated and mains operation tools. Last summer, we put together a buyer’s guide to lawnmowers, then revisited the topic to consider the best lawn mowers for small gardens. As well as tools, we stock a wide range of outdoor accessories, with a particularly large selection of chainsaw accessories.

If you have a smaller garden or an allotment, hand tools might be more appropriate than power tools. Our range of garden tools and accessories includes cutting and pruning tools, forks, rakes and hoes, hand trowels and weed forks and shovels and spades. We also have a selection of garden accessories from leading brands like Hozelock.

Wash this way

Whether you’re a professional with premises to look after or you just need a tool to keep your car, driveway or patio in great condition, our range of pressure washers covers the whole spectrum of high-pressure hoses. The Makita HW101 1300w 100 bar Compact Pressure Washer is one of the most popular products in our range. It is ideal for domestic use on driveways, patios, cars, bikes, decking and windows and suitable for cleaning drains. It’s a fantastic tool at a brilliant price!

In addition to machines for domestic or light professional use, we are also delighted to offer a range of heavy duty Pressure Washers from market leaders Karcher and V-TUF. Both manufacturers build these incredibly powerful tools to order, then deliver direct to you from their factories so please allow extra time if choosing one of these machines.

If you work in the trades, you’ve probably got plenty of clothing that’ll keep you warm during the winter months. But are you site body ready? We have t-shirts (including hi vis varieties) and shorts available in several sizes meaning that you can work in comfort, even on warm days.

You may also want to swap out your work boots for trainers, such as the DeWalt CUTTER Black Lighweight Safety Trainer. An alternative, also from DeWalt, would be the FARGO Black Safety Trainer.
