The ToolShed prides itself on making sure that you are satisfied with the tool that you have bought, for the level of work you require. We have three grade ratings for all our tools:

  • Serious D.I.Y
    For the home user who likes to have good tools but cannot justify a high price. May use the tool once every couple of months.
  • Trade
    Designed for the tradesperson working with one or two others in a gang, that needs a good tool to do a job. Doesn’t necessarily use it on a day-to-day basis.
  • Professional
    Designed for the tradie to use on a day-to-day basis.

ToolShed Trade

You’ll notice that a lot of our tools are ‘ToolShed Trade’ tools. These are top quality tools that we have sourced directly out of high quality factories which often produce big brand name tools.

The ToolShed team personally visit these factories to inspect the product and make sure it is fit to wear the ToolShed name. We bulk buy from these factories, ship to New Zealand, pull it out of the container and put it on the shelf.

This means no middle man or brand royalty to push the price up. This means YOU can have the very best tools CHEAP!

DON’T BE FOOLED by the prices - ToolShed Trade hand tools come with a full lifetime guarantee, power tools come with a three year trade warranty and petrol tools come with 12 month trade warranty.


The ToolShed imports a range of trade quality power tools named after the Greek Titan, Arges.

Arges power tools come with the features and quality that you would expect from top of the range, quality tools. Tested for over five years under New Zealand conditions, Arges power tools really hack the pace. They are an excellent option for those who want to buy trade quality tools at a DIY price.

Arges power tools come with a three year trade warranty and a no risk 30 day money back guarantee (Conditions apply).
