Road Test Peugeot 5008: Here's How To Wake A Sleeping "Lion"

 Peugeot 5008 is not new in Indonesia. This seven-passenger family car was first introduced in 2009, where we also had time to test it. At that time, the machine amazed us. The form and features are not very.

In other words, the 5008 at that time was in line with what one would expect from a European-born Peugeot. Practical seat arrangements, spacious cabin, full features to a comfortable ride and the shape is in accordance with the 'Prancing Lion' design theme at that time. This car was drawn by designer Gilles Vidal, who had just been appointed to be the main designer at Peugeot.

Road Test Peugeot 5008: Here's How To Wake A Sleeping "Lion"

What we can say about the first-generation 5008 is, like a gentleman who is ready to slap anyone who has the intention of getting in his way. This is made possible by the use of a THP 156 four-cylinder engine with a 1.5 liter turbo capacity which is responsive and enjoyable.

Astra Peugeot then presented the second generation around 2017. This time the shape was surprising because it was outside the standard family car design that is usually found in Indonesia. The lights no longer seemed to be pulled back, but depicted the hooves of a lion ready to claw. Again, everything was as expected.

Then came the facelift version. This surprised us. The design of his face is like a long jump. The frameless grille with DRLs dangling from the bonnet on the rim emphasizes its presence on the road. Even when silent, this car always attracts attention. Especially those who already feel cool riding the Toyota Fortuner and Mitsubishi Pajero Sport.

But is the new 5008 that cool? We must firmly say yes. Apart from (honestly) we are fans of anti-mainstream new cars, but this is indeed a car to be proud of, without having to try hard to look good. Of course there are minuses. But we are sure, you will be aware of the various advantages that exist.

Complete Everything

The engine inside the Peugeot 5008 Allure Plus muzzle is called the EP6FDT. As previously reviewed, this derived engine from the Prince Engine drive family is configured with a four-cylinder with TwinPower Turbocharger. Its peak power is 167 PS which appears at 6,000 rpm. The highest torque is obtained from 1,400 rpm at 240 Nm. The power is channeled through a 6-speed automatic transmission which can be controlled via paddle shift on the steering wheel. 

What does it mean? Pay attention to engine speed when torque peaks. 1,400 rpm is a very low rev. The gas is stepped on a little, the torque has exploded. The pull feels responsive, the car becomes agile. Even so, in Normal driving mode, the ECU will reduce the pounding that makes you feel nauseous.

This mode makes passengers feel comfortable and the driver hardly feels any aggressive gear shifts or engine revs. Peugeot 5008 also acts like a family car.

Switch to Sport mode. The ECU seemed to say "Whatever!" 5008 is like a sleeping lion being disturbed. Towing becomes more aggressive, and the steering wheel feels fuller. And the exhaust is more audible. Turbo works neatly without lag. In automatic mode, the shift feels accurate. The transmission's willingness to hold the gear makes the 5008's movement even more aggressive, especially when swerving in toll traffic density. Of course with attention to driving safety. His behavior in this mode reminds us of BMW products, minus the pops at the end of the exhaust.

Play gearshift with paddle shift, then adrenaline satisfaction can be achieved properly. Certainly not as big as the BMW M-Series or Mercedes-AMG. But for family men who still like the rush of adrenaline, this Sport Mode 5008 can accommodate.

In the end, the pleasure and driving comfort of the first generation 5008 is passed on to this generation. In fact, we dare say, everything is getting better without sacrificing anything for the sake of production efficiency and selling price.

Excessive? We don't think so. Peugeot has always been known for its capable products. Then what's the minus? Sometimes it feels a bit slow gearshift, especially when using the paddle shifter. Don't imagine being slow for 1-2 seconds. But sometimes it feels like there is a short pause. Second, the sound of the Continental tires being used. Maybe this is affected by the mileage of the test car which is already more than 19 thousand kilometers.

Overall, the Peugeot 5008 managed to make us satisfied. Just like the generation it replaces. What it feels like until now is still effective

Buy Toyota Veloz Highest Variant, Here's What You Get

 The All New Toyota Veloz enters the second generation. It comes with a stylish appearance and has a touch of SUV orientation, although it still has MPV status. It is available in three (3) types, namely Veloz M/T, Veloz Q CVT, and Veloz Q CVT TSS. The highest variant gets the Toyota Safety Sense feature, which is Toyota's newest driving safety technology. So what do you get from this new MPV for IDR 331 million.

Interiors

The interior of the Veloz is able to pamper the driver and passengers. One of the features in the driver's seat is the instrument panel. Already full digital measuring 7 inches and there are 4 display display options. Everything plays with colors that are quite detailed and attractive. And the various information that is there is easy to monitor. Among them there are seat belt warnings, outside temperature, odometer, tripmeter, digital clock, speedometer and even inclinometer and is also able to present an explanation of the Toyota Safety Sense feature. Just press the button on the left and right of the steering wheel to see it.

Then the fancy dashboard layout. Using three color combinations, namely black, beige, and silver ornaments. Not to mention that some of the panels on the front have embraced soft touch material. It's on the front passenger dashboard, armrest to the steering wheel.

The steering wheel is wrapped in luxurious leather and has adopted tilt and telescopic, so it's easy to adjust the driving position for comfort when traveling long distances.

Bottom right there is a button to set the Drive mode. There are several driving modes to choose from, normal, eco mode and power mode.

There is thin ambient lighting or New Vibrant Illumination Light on the center console and the first row door trim, exuding an elegant and premium impression. It is clearly visible at night and creates a sense of calm and relaxation for front passengers during the journey.

Then there is Veloz embossed on the left side of the dashboard or in front of the front passenger seat. This is an identity that he is different from the All New Avanza.

Still on the center console, there is a head unit with a 9-inch floating screen landscape. Has the ability to accommodate a variety of connectivity such as Android Auto and the latest Apple CarPlay®. Operation is also quite easy, because it has adopted a touch screen. There, the driver can experience the sophisticated All Round View Camera.

The driver's seat can be adjusted reclining for the back, and also the height and low through the height adjuster feature. Although still a lever, this is enough to help the driver get a relaxed position.

Leg and head room in the first row is really roomy. Likewise in the second row that can be shifted back and forth. Plus it already has a new blower design with a thinner look. The setting is in the form of a round knob whose position is placed slightly backwards. Although it is similar to Calya's with a flat design, air conditioning can reach the passengers in the third row seats.

The center back can be folded to become a handrest. Unfortunately no cup holder is provided. But quite helpful when passengers want to relax. Speaking of features, passengers in the second row get two USB ports which are located under the center console.

All passengers including the driver are also guaranteed to be safe, because each seat is equipped with an adjustable headrest, three-point seat belt and airbags that ensure ultimate safety.

The issue of comfort continues with the presence of the long sofa mode. This feature allows all seats, both front and center, to lie down like a sofa. Because the second row seats can go back and forth, adult passengers can still sit in the back seat. However, it can only be used for those who have a height below 170cm. If more than that, the head is easily stuck with the roof.

The isofix feature for baby seats is also available. This technology is very important to install a baby car seat so that the baby can ride safely.

Entertainment for the middle and rear passengers is provided with rear seat entertainment (RSE) aka a monitor attached to the ceiling. They can watch their favorite videos while enjoying the trip. The resulting sound quality is quite adequate. There are six speakers (including two tweeters on the A-pillar). And to adjust the audio is also easier with the audio steering switch on the steering wheel.

Comparison of Hyundai Ioniq 5 Electric Car vs Lexus UX 300e

 Ioniq 5 is Hyundai's newest investment to play in the electric vehicle segment in Indonesia. No half-hearted, his presence was immediately responded positively to the achievement of ordering nearly 1,700 units since his presence last month.

Comparison of Hyundai Ioniq 5 Electric Car vs Lexus UX 300e

Then speaking of rivals, the Ioniq 5 does not stand alone as an EV model in Indonesia. There are several interesting models to compare with the Hyundai product. One of them, the Lexus UX 300e. It seems there is no problem trying to look at the data on paper of these two premium electric vehicle products, which certainly invites interest for electric vehicle enthusiasts to choose each product.

First, just about the price. Ioniq 5 cannot be said to be cheap for most of the automotive market in Indonesia. The official price starts at IDR 718 million. For the model we are comparing, this is the top variant, namely the Signature Long Range at a price of Rp. 829 million. Worth the price to get the current premium status. Then the Lexux UX 300 e comes with a price range of IDR 1.2 billion, a difference of around IDR 400 million from the Ioniq 5, the highest variant. However, Lexus carries the premium image that has been attached to the Japanese brand.

Hyundai Ioniq 5

This leads us to the next discussion, namely design. Lexus still carries the design lines commonly found in modern products, such as the distinctive spindle grille, sturdy body shape and distinctive front and rear lamp designs as premium products. Meanwhile, the Ioniq 5 is said to be a revolutionary design because it is different from previous products.

Indeed, this EV still carries a parametric jewel design in some parts, but the retro impression with a square shape is Hyundai's approach to this modern vehicle. It can be said out of the box, but this is evidenced by the various design awards that Hyundai has received for its EV model. Both have their own approach and definitely have their own fans, again about this design, it's more about their individual preferences.

Still discussing the exterior, another comparison is in the size of the tires. The Ioniq 5 uses 19-inch rims with 235/55 R19 tires. The design is quite unique, namely it comes with a parametric design. For Lexus, use 17-inch rims with 215/60 R17 tires. The Lexus rim design approach is more sporty, in accordance with the sports SUV design that he chose.

In terms of color choices, the Ioniq 5 offers optical white, titan gray metallic, magnetic silver metallic, midnight black pearl and gravity gold matte as an option with one interior color choice, namely black.

For the interior there is a choice of colors cobalt, black, orcher, rich cream and white ash

Continue to another comparison that is a matter of dimensions. The Ioniq 5 comes with a length of 4,635 mm, a width of 1,890 mm and a height of 1,647 mm with a ground clearance of 160 mm and a wheelbase of 3,000 mm. The Lexus UX 300e offers a length of 4,495 mm, a width of 1,840 mm and a height of 1,545 mm with a wheelbase of 2,640 mm and a ground clearance of 140 mm. Dimensionally, the Lexus is smaller than the Ioniq 5, but has the same carrying capacity of 5 passengers.

The interior design chosen by the Hyundai Ioniq 5 is futuristic, which represents a lounge in the cabin space for a comfortable impression. Some of the main interior features are the presence of a panoramic glass roof, seats wrapped in leather, a seat with footrests in the first row, a 12.3-inch screen that serves as a meter cluster and head unit, as well as a Bose premium eight-speaker sound system for a maximum entertainment experience. drive. The Lexus UX 300e model is still faithful to the same interior design form as other Lexus models. The premium touch comes from the stitching with the sahiko technique, the 10.3-inch head unit, 13 speakers throughout the cabin made by Mark Levinson, as well as a digital meter cluster.

The features of these two electric cars are also quite sophisticated. Ioniq 5 is equipped with Hyundai SmartSense which consists of several active safety features such as high beam assist, forward collision avoidance assist, driver attention warning, smart cruise control with stop & go function. There are still lane keeping assist and lane following assist, blind spot view monitor, blind spot collision avoidance assist, rear cross traffic collision avoidance assist, tire pressure monitoring system, parking distance warning and view monitor. The UX 300e features the Lexus Safety System+ which consists of lane tracing assist, pre-collision system, blind spot monitor, dynamic radar cruise control, parking support brake, rear cross traffic alert, head up display and view around monitor.

Go to the performance section. The Ioniq 5 uses a permanent magnet sychronous motor with a power production of 217 ps and a lithium ion battery with a capacity of 72.6 kWh. In Indonesia, the Ioniq 5 uses a rear drive with a torque of 350 Nm. The AC socket uses type 2 and the DC socket uses the CCS Combo2 type. Its charging capability is for AC charging for six hours and six minutes and DC fast charging for around 56 minutes 30 seconds, while the use of 350 kW fast charging will last for 17 minutes 16 seconds. The Long Range type is claimed to be able to cover a distance of 451 kilometers.

Regarding the advantages of the Ioniq 5 battery, Hyundai includes V2L or vehicle to load capabilities. This capability makes the Ioniq 5 an additional power generator for outdoor activities such as charging gadgets during travel. Its largest total power source is about 3.6 kW which is equivalent to the average household electricity.

The UX 300e uses a permanent magnet motor that produces 201 hp of power with a Li-ion battery with a capacity of 54.35 kWh with a current of 153 Ah. The motor located at the front produces 300 Nm of torque. The charger socket uses type 2 for AC and Chademo for DC. The charging time for the AC wall charger is about 6.5 hours, for a home charging socket it is about 24 hours and for DC fast charging it can be charged in only 50 minutes. Lexus claims this model can cover a distance of 300 km with the WLTP method.

The various advantages above are also added to the after sales program for each model. Hyundai comes with a 24-hour Hyundai Call Center offer, a basic warranty of 3 years or 100,000 kilometers, free maintenance services for up to 5 years or 75,000 kilometers, free 24-hour roadside assistance, Hyundai Comes Anywhere service program, Free 24-hour Emergency mobile charging, and free spare parts for up to 3 years or 45,000 kilometers. In addition, Hyundai includes an electric vehicle battery warranty for 8 years or 160,000 kilometers. Electric car consumers will also get a free AC Home Charger and installation fees as well as a free portable charger. Lexus also offers a warranty that is almost the same as an eight-year warranty, as well as five years of free service and parts.

Conclusion

Looking at the comparison above, the Ioniq 5 and UX 300e can be benchmarks for electric vehicles in the country. Each provides advantages that potential customers can consider. Ioniq 5 offers a fairly complete product, although with a price tag of Rp800 million. For prospective Lexus consumers, it is certain that they will get a premium image that has been built for years but now with a touch of the future through the electric motors offered.

The dominance of consumers of both products is likely to be second or third car buyers. For Ioniq 5 consumers, it could be due to novelty or already having a conventional vehicle in their garage. For Lexus, it is likely loyalists who want a different touch on their SUV. Each one returns to the tastes and needs that are tailored to the existing funding needs

Meet Kymco Ionex

 Kymco Italia has introduced its newest electric scooter, the Kymco Ionex. The advantages offered by this pollution-free motorbike is a long distance of up to 200 kilometers when the battery is fully charged. Then a practical charging system with an exchange system (battery swap) also makes this motorbike interesting to own.

Meet Kymco Ionex

Quoting Rideapart, the scooter with the full name Ionex Many 110 EV was actually exhibited at the EICMA Milan 2021 automotive exhibition but at that time it was still in prototype form. Well, the model that has been officially introduced looks more perfect with some of the technology it has.

In terms of electricity, the Kymco Ionex Many 110 is equipped with an electric dynamo with a capacity of 3,200 watts or the equivalent of 4.3 horsepower. While the battery system uses a LiFePo4 (LFP) model which the manufacturer claims on a single charge, the vehicle can go up to 124 miles or 200 kilometers.

As explained earlier, one of the advantages offered by this stun motor is the battery exchange system in several spots that has been prepared by Kymco. However, if you want to charge independently, you can also do it at home, it only takes 1 hour to fully charge the battery.

Interestingly, this electric scooter provides space for 5 batteries, each of which weighs 4.9 kilograms. The battery has a kind of handle that is easy to remove or carry around.

In terms of weight, the Kymco Ionex Many 110 weighs up to 93.9 kilograms and can be claimed to reach a top speed of up to 50 kilometers per hour. This electric scooter is said to be suitable for use on congested and congested streets because of its relatively compact dimensions.

Kymco Ionex Features

To accompany the owner's activities, this motorbike is also equipped with various interesting features. For example, there is a connectivity device between a motorbike and a smartphone, so you can monitor all important information including battery power from the screen of your device. 

Next is the embedding of the meter panel with smart navigation access. The direction app is also integrated with battery charging points so that its use will be more enjoyable.

The Ionex Many 110 EV is claimed to be suitable for the needs of typical urban commuters, but Kymco has not released an official price list for this electric scooter. The plan is that KMI (from the Padana Sviluppo group) will distribute Ionex scooters throughout Italy.

However, from various leaks, it is said that the price set by the manufacturer touched 1,420 United States (US) dollars or which, when converted to Rupiah, was equivalent to Rp. 20.6 million. It will be interesting if this motorbike is also imported to Indonesia, especially since the Taiwanese motorcycle brand also trades in the Indonesian two-wheeled market. We are waiting for the surprise

These are 10 things you need to know before buying a Honda Scoopy

 Honda Scoopy last received a refresh on November 11, 2020. PT Astra Honda (AHM) gave birth to it in an all new and successfully made the appearance of this scooter even more attractive to own.

These are 10 things you need to know before buying a Honda Scoopy

1. Dimensions of the Latest Honda Scoopy Enlarged

First, referring to the official motor specification data, the size of the latest Honda Scoopy is now enlarged. The overall length is 1,864 mm, width 683 mm, height 1,075 mm and wheelbase 1,251 mm.

The old Honda Scoopy generation has a length of 1,847 mm, a width of 686 mm, a height of 1,061 mm, and a wheelbase of 1,257 mm. The change in dimensions also makes the seat height of the Scoopy increase by 2 mm or to 746 mm. Meanwhile, the lowest distance to the ground (ground clearance) also increases by 2 mm to 145 mm.

2. New Engine Offal But Decreased Output

Still referring to the specification sheet, the all new Honda Scoopy still packs a 110 cc engine. However, in this new generation, the cubication is actually larger to be 109.5 cc from the previous 108.2 cc.

Investigating, it turns out that the engine used is the same engine as that of the all new Honda Beat and New Genio. Now the bore x stroke size is 47 x 63.1 mm, which was originally 50 x 55 mm. Then the compression of the engine also increased to 10:1 from the initial 9.5:1.

Unfortunately, from the use of the new machine, the output on paper actually decreased. From the maximum power, for example, from 8.9 horsepower at 7,500 rpm, it has now become 8.8 horsepower at the same engine speed. While the peak torque also drops to 9.3 Nm from 9.4 Nm at 5,500 rpm engine torque.

3. The Volume of the Fuel Tank Becomes Bigger

In the new generation Honda Scoopy, Honda engineers calibrate the fuel tank volume. Now the latest Scoopy can drink up to 4.2 liters of gasoline or up 0.2 liters from the previous version.

The manufacturer claims that with the new fuel tank capacity, Scoopy can record fuel consumption of 59 kilometers per liter when the Idling Stop System feature is on. This is very economical, guys!

4. New eSAF Lighter Frame

In this latest Scoopy, the empty weight is reduced quite well, ranging from 95 and 94 kilograms (specifically for the Smart Key type). In the previous model the weight is fairly heavy to 99 kilograms.

This is thanks to the use of the same new chassis as the BeAT and Genio. AHM named it the eSAF (enhanced Smart Architecture Frame) chassis. The manufacturer says, with the application of this frame, the weight of the bike is reduced by 8 percent and promises good stability

5. USB Model Charging Dock

His name is a motorbike for young people, of course he wants everything to be practical and easy. When it comes to charging your device, you don't need to bother carrying around an adapter anymore, the latest Scoopy already uses a USB type power outlet.

Its position is still in the slot on the left deck which is complete with a cover drawer. So you don't have to worry about your smartphone getting wet when riding in rainy conditions.

6. Item Hook is Safer

The manufacturer also provides a new model of hook or hook in the all new Scoopy. Now use a locking model at the top, so that when you carry items that are hung on the components, they don't come off easily.

A minimalist but highly functional change isn't it? Especially considering that Scoopy is a commuter motorbike, the majority of its use is for daily mobility.

 7. More Sophisticated with Keyless

All new Honda Scoopy now comes with more sophisticated technology. There is now a keyless option with Anti Theft Alarm, a device similar to that of the PCX and Vario 160.

It's just that if you want to have a Scoopy with keyless features, the variants you have to choose are Scoopy Stylish and Prestige. While the 2 variants below it, Sporty and Fashion still pack conventional key models.

8. Change the Lights to Make the Look More Classic

The most striking changes and make it more classic are in the components of the front and rear lights. The design is consistent with using a rounded model, but now tends to be more oval. What's interesting is that the turn signal is now separated.

The new headlight design is maximized by the use of LED projector technology. While at the back, the lamp model is perfectly round, but interestingly, even though it is still a halogen, it resembles an LED lamp. 

9 Complete Features

basically Scoopy has a different target consumer from Genio. Although both have a stylish appearance, Scoopy was created to have a higher class through design, especially the completeness of features.

Above, we have explained that the latest Scoopy is keyless to the LED projector lamp in front. Moreover, this scooter has also used an informative digital-analog panel meter, ACG Starter, ISS, Side Stand Switch, and has also used new 5-spoke wheels with a 12-inch diameter that provide a better driving style.

10. Types and Prices of All New Honda Scoopy

And the last thing you should know is the type options and selling price tag from Scoopy. This is important to adjust to your budget and needs. The all new Honda Scoopy consists of four variants: Sporty, Fashion, Stylish, and Prestige. Especially Stylish and Prestige have adopted Smart Key alias keyless.

Based on the official AHM website, as of May 2022, the price of the all new Scoopy is released at IDR 21 million OTR Jakarta.

"What is clear is that until now our preparations to launch the latest product in the second quarter are still on track as planned. Today, too, we will first share a little more information about the product and launch date, which we will launch in the not too distant future,” said Arie Christopher, COO of Subaru Indonesia.

Arie further explained that this new model has gone through a test stage, aka a test drive of 20,000 kilometers in preparation for greeting the Indonesian market. The test went through various criteria to the endurance test required by the relevant government agency, he said. This is to make this new product meet market expectations.

Subaru Forester

Questioning the Forester itself, the model that will be launched is the fifth generation with the SK body code. It has been circulating since 2018. Of course, what will be launched here is the facelift version that Subaru has provided for the 2022 model year. Its form is slightly visible from the LED DRL silhouette on the teaser accompanied by the fog lamp luminescence which is sufficient to display the boxy body shape typical of an SUV.


To be sure, Subaru products will feature its signature technology, namely the Boxer engine and the Symmetrical All-Wheel Drive (AWD) drive system. There are three engine options, namely 1.8 liter turbo (CB18), 2.0 liter (FB20), and 2.5 liter (FB25). They are all petrol engines and are mated to a Lineartronic CVT automatic transmission.

The latest Forester has also carried a series of standard safety technologies that are packaged as Eyesight Driver Assist Technology. Some of the safety features include the Subaru DriverFocus Distraction Mitigation System. Can detect when the driver lost focus or sleepy on the way. This system can even recognize five different driver profiles, to be able to adjust the seat position, mirrors, and AC settings.

What variant or specifications of the Subaru Forester will be launched in Indonesia next month, we will know exactly at launch later.

  3M Hookit Sanding Block

3M Hookit Sanding Block helps make sanding easier in difficult locations. Use this accessory item with Hookit abrasive products to achieve more consistent, uniform sanding results. The sanding block when used in combination with Hookit abrasion is ideal for sanding filler, primer and other substrates. 

 Get Better Results When Sanding by Hand

3M Hookit Sanding Block is the perfect companion when using 3M Hookit abrasion. This sanding block fits comfortably in the hand to help reduce instances of hand fatigue. The block allows for a more even and consistent application of pressure, which delivers more uniform results. A sanding block also lets you apply more pressure than you could simply with your hand, a benefit that will speed how quickly you can complete your project. 

 Benefits of Sanding by Hand

3M blocks make hand sanding a more efficient task, which helps boost overall productivity when power sanding is not an option. Automotive restoration technicians like power sanding due to its speed and ease, but some applications do not allow for power sanding. In those cases, you can still gain efficiency by using 3M sanding blocks. Use these blocks for areas out of reach of power sanding tools. Hand sanding is also preferred for situations in which you need more precise control. With the speed of power sanders, one lingering pause can result in irreversible damage in certain situations. Hand sanding allows you to work at a pace that's suitable for more delicate work. Hand sanding also produces less dust if that is a concern. 


Two Big Benefits of Using 3M Sanding Blocks


3M Hookit Sanding Blocks serve dual purposes of making the job of sanding go easier and the results better. These auto shop accessories are the product of seeking innovative ways to boost efficiency and effectiveness on the job.
 

Enjoy the Ease and Speed of the Hookit Attachment System


These sanding blocks use the 3M Hookit attachment system for easy replacement of sandpaper sheets. Simply press on the abrasive sheet to get a secure grip, and then peel it away for easy removal. Hookit is the perfect time-saving answer when you're switching between abrasive grits frequently. Best of all, you can remove and reattach an abrasive that still has a useful service life. Let's say you need to switch to a different grit but the abrarasives on the sheet you're currently using are not fully spent. Simply remove it and reattach later. Hookit ensures that you will get the same secure hold, which is an important advantage compared to pressure sensitive attachment products where the adhesive may be compromised after being removed.

From the manufacturer

1

Malco Products, SBC was started in 1950 by Mark Keymer, a young steel supply salesman who manufactured and marketed a pipe crimper he had invented for installing sheet metal ductwork in heating systems. He insisted on quality construction, setting the benchmark for the new company. To this day, Malco strives to uphold our founder’s legacy of quality and innovation.

Our story

For over 70 years, Malco has been dedicated to producing innovative, dependable, and high-performance hand tools for the heating, ventilation, air conditioning, and refrigeration (HVACR) industry; exterior remodeling field, including roofing, siding, and gutter installation; fence, deck, and rail installation; and auto body repair. The introduction of Malco’s new Eagle Grip line of professional locking tools will also cater to the welding and agriculture industries. We believe in top-quality products that work hard, enhance performance, and stand up to years of real-world use on the job. Our corporate headquarters and main manufacturing facility is located in Annandale, MN. Malco is proud to offer American-made tools that Work. Perform. Outlast.

Facility

In 2018, we opened up our second manufacturing facility located in DeWitt, NE to start producing USA-made locking pliers. For nearly 60 years, the best tools ever made were crafted in DeWitt and forged from American steel. Unfortunately, that manufacturer decided to move production to China in 2008 to save a few bucks per unit at the expense of American jobs. Since bringing manufacturing back to the nation’s heartland, Malco is committed to producing the toughest and highest quality tools in the world. Verified by third-party testing, the LP10WC Eagle Grip Curved Jaw Locking Pliers w/Wire Cutter are officially the strongest locking pliers available on the market.

Dewitt

Making Malco’s Eagle Grip locking tools take more than equipment; they take the talent and devotion of skilled artisans who live and breathe hand tool manufacturing every day. Employees of Malco’s DeWitt facility uphold Midwest values of hard work and ownership that get baked into every tool. This dedication to craftsmanship is one of the factors that set Eagle Grip apart from the competition.

Pliers
