Well good morning guys it's
john from Bearly Russian. Today my son Joash and I are
out looking at tool stores, we looked at some tool stores, we've gone to some
of the bigger chains stores and now we're going to some of the smaller ones now. We are just trying to see what sort
of specialized tools we can find here. obviously from Australia we we're familiar
with what we can buy there and the brands that we can buy, all the big brands your Makita's your
Milwaukee's your DeWalt's all those sorts of brands. We haven't seen as many of them for sale here.
Bosch is fairly common, Bosch and Hilti they're here, again i think it's more of a European style influence
than say, the American brands and how much of that is caused by the
price fluctuation between the ruble and the dollar, whether there are sanctions involved or things like
So we're going to see what's available, we'll show you some of the Russian tools available and
show you what tool shops are like here in Russia. Come along enjoy the day with
us and we'll show you what's around. So the first store we came to turned out to be quite a
good one, it had a good range of tools, all different types of tools from your lawn care construction
metal fabrication and timber working tools. it had one of the better ranges of tools that we've actually
seen in Russia. We haven't been to this store before but it had a good range of tools.
As we go through I'll try and pop a few price charts up for you, so you can get an idea of
what the costs are for the tools here in Russia. Got a big range of Stihl chainsaws, there were
no Husqvarna's or other brands here obviously there is Stihl distributor but decent
size range of all sorts of Stihl equipment whipper snippers or like line
trimmers the Americans call them mowers and vacuums and shredders
a good good range of Stihl tools.
backpack blowers A lot of petrol mowers, there were
a few battery operated mowers which you'll see. electric mowers also but yeah a good a good range of stihl equipment Joash talking to the sales rep So this is their range of construction
style tools, different brands some of the brands, we aren't familiar with,
Worx we've seen before but a lot of other brands we we don't get
in Australia and obviously they are for Russia and maybe other countries in
this area, but definitely not in Australia.
Some of the more familiar ones you see,
Stanley here which we have in Australia DeWalt which is also in Australia, metal
cut off saws radial arm saws Bosch obviously we get in Australia. Nice radial arm saw from DeWalt these double saws, I don't even know what
they're called really, but they have the table saw on top and a drop saw set up below.
they are not very common in Australia DeWalt metal cutoff saw Stanley, so they have got a few bigger brands.
Here we got DeWalt, Bosch a little bit of Makita. Patriot which is a brand which
I haven't seen anywhere else but Russia, I don't know if it's in any other
countries, I'm presuming it's a Chinese brand. Worx is a brand that we have in Australia This is one of the biggest tool
stores I've seen in Russia so far. greenworks some more Worx tools let us know
if works is a reasonable brand? Some more patriot tools. Patriot reminds a little bit of the Ozito brand,
we have a big hardware chain in Australia called Bunnings and they brought out
the Ozito tools and when they first came out they were pretty average, but
if you only bought the plug-in tools the powered tools, not the cordless tools they
were ok, they did it right.
They weren't as fine-tuned as the
bigger name brands. A lot of water pumps, hoses gardening gear, Fiskars is
pretty big here, because you can find Fiskars in a lot of
places, it's a good quality brand. A lot more garden tools, garden
tractors, small garden tractors, Wheel barrows. Some more workshop tools,
workshop style, what's this brand, Belmash, never heard of that brand before, they seem to make a few
different tools, belt sanders, flat wheel sanders. this is a table planer and a table saw yeah, this is actually cast, man that's solid What have we got here? Korvet corvette, I guess that means they're fast three-year warranty on these ones Belmash. None of these brands I've
seen before, these are all new to me. You can see the difference between the DeWalt
which is sort of twice the price of the Belmash Interesting, so what are discovering
is on the tags here, it says Russia there, so this corvette brand is Russian brand
Patriot is Chinese this brand here jet is Chinese. This Belmash doesn't say,
obviously the DeWalt is USA Chinese, Belmash apparently is Chinese also.
Okay another wheel sander The the interskol is a brand
that's made here in Russia. we have got some spray equipment generators some big generators One thing we notice is that, with the power tools
the cordless tools aren't as popular here in Russia and I presume that's because of the cold
weather and how much the cold weather affects cordless tools so they still use a lot of corded tools, which is why
generators are still pretty big here. pipe benders these heat guns, these
big diesels diesel heat guns for heating up your work spaces, your workshops,
car engine when it's when it's cold.
These are diesel down here or kerosene. compactors, concrete saws. A lot of this is going to be just finding
out what brands are good quality and reliable. Plastering gear, kangaroo jack or high lift jack, winches, endless chains, ratchet straps. This is one of the better tool stores,
that we've seen here in Russia so far. They have got quite a good range of gear. and we've got router bit fittings multi-tool fittings or oscillating tool fittings I don't know the brand is but it
comes from Israel.
Kapro you can buy that brand in Australia,
it's not common in Australia, but you can definitely buy it in Australia
it's quite good quality, quite a good brand Kapro Stanley fat max levels okay, some laser levels again brands
I haven't seen before. x liner four way laser levels with external levels control warranty for three years, 36 months Dremel there's a brand you've seen before,
a lot of smaller tools, new small bits big range Whipper snippers, one thing we've noticed here
in Russia is they use Whipper snippers a lot. Areas where, if we were in Australia
you just get them some kind of push mower or slasher mower, but here they use
whipper snippers and they do acres and acres with whippersnippers.
Here we go a patriot a
wheeled one that would make a little bit easier, so i mean if you've got rough
ground, I guess that works well, but know in Australia we would
just use some kind of slasher. a little block splitter very little block splitter sort of a multi-carry cart setup we got cordless mower automatic three-year guarantee on the worx Aurora I've seen that brand
before, it's a Russian brand made in Russia. what's that 350 aurora 160 amp, Mig welder. 220 volt, 180 amp this overman 185
sort of a workshop size welder. Some more welders, they are Italian made
Kvazarrus, I've never seen that brand before. interesting but one of the bigger ranges
we've definitely seen here in russia okay, so milking set up cups are all inside and pumps Well set up, interesting, that'll be handy on the farm a milking machine, grain crusher for crushing grain.
Some table grinders, bench grinders All right we found the Makita store, let's go in
and see what tools they've got. This is a brand we're familiar with from Australia, let's
see what they got. So the floor space of this shop wasn't big, but they certainly
had a big selection of Makita tools in their range of tools from all sorts of
different categories, from your table saws to your drills, to your planers, to jigsaws.
comprehensive, one of the better ranges I've seen in Russia some of the other smaller stores will have a few tools from brands, but they had a huge selection of the different tools and all the
different models they have in the drills and the grinders and planers, circular saws.
But you can see, a good range of tools. It was a little bit awkward in store because
it's such a small store and we're trying to film without being in people's way, But I
hope it gives you a good idea of what's available. table saw, foldable table saw planer big boy saws big depth All corded Alrighty guys, well we've checked out a few
tool stores and seen what's available, it was quite encouraging to see the Makita store and the
big range of gear there, pretty much anything we could have got in australia you can get here.
The prices sort of comparable, a little bit more expensive here, from what I can see I have
to do some comparisons at home and check it out. So you've seen some of the things that are
available here what kind of tools are available. Of course there's more tool stores around that
we haven't found yet.
In Australia we used a fair bit of Milwaukee tools and Milwaukee
is not common here at all. In Russia you'll see Makita is probably the most well known brand
we know here, you'll see some more DeWalt tools here, but very little Milwaukee. They are
here, I have seen them advertised occasionally, but it's not big here at
all. So from what I understand they're actually quite expensive, because they're
coming in from from the USA. So that's our trip out, looking for tools today and
it's been good, it's been informative, it's been helpful for us to find out where
we can order in the tools from and arrange them ahead of time It's okay
to try new brands, but it's always nice to be able to work with brands your familiar with because
you know the quality, you know their accuracy and their reliability.
