    At the Hireman we have a range of equipment available for woodworking tasks. Whether it's cutting wood, sanding or finishing, we have the tools for you. Here are a few examples of the sort of kit we have available.



    We offer a compact and robust 6-8mm router. Offering a smooth routing performance and a maximum plunge depth of 57mm, the router operates thanks to a plunge type motor. Designed to ensure low vibration values, the router can be used throughout a full working day without causing operator fatigue.

    Also available is a 235mm circular saw. At 110V and coming with a TCT blade, the circular saw is perfect for cutting straight and angled lines in woods such as plywood, MDF, timber and blockboard. Its blade and low vibration values mean the operator can use it for a full working day without fatigue.


    Additional features include a high speed blower, which can provide a dust-free view of the cutting line and an integrated dust extraction unit. The saw’s ergonomic design helps improve user comfort and safety further.

    Palm Finishing Sander


    Another option is a palm finishing sander. Ergonomically designed, the sander comes with a dust bag and its small size allows it to offer great performance alongside comfort and flexibility. These factors make it ideal for small sanding tasks or working in areas which are tough to reach with a larger machine.


    Additional features include a built-in dust collection system to ensure a cleaner work space and a non-slip grip with low vibration values. The sander is also suitable for use with roll clamper or hook and eye papers.

  • Recip Saws

    Recip saws are some of our most popular products; used by plumbers, heating engineers and joiners. Recip saws are ideal for straight and curved cuts in metal pipes, plastic, plasterboard, wood or even poultry! We do however recommend you take a few more safety precautions if you’re carving the Christmas turkey…
    All this makes recip saws very versatile, as proved by their popularity with our customers. An orbital cutting motion gives greater efficiency and allows for quick and easy sawing, while an ergonomic handle provides optimum control, front support grip and an anti-vibration handle for low-fatigue working.

    The recip saw’s blade changing system means blade changes are fast and convenient and can be done one-handed. It has variable speed control and a high-performance motor which can deal with the toughest applications.
