Cold-Weather Tool Tips

Remodeling | Tools and Equipment, Remodeling, Business, Live-Work, Jobsite Equipment, Building Envelope, Waterproofing: I usually try to plan my work according to the weather; I like working outside when it's sunny and warm and inside when it's cold. But I live and work in a cold climate, so my plan usually doesn't pan out. Here in South Dakota, temperatures may peak at 5 degrees on a winter day.

As everyone who lives with cold weather knows, tools and equipment don't work the same when temperatures drop. Electric cords crack and break, electric motors frost over when moved from warm to cold spaces or vice versa, gas or diesel motors won't start, and batteries go dead. The list goes on and on.
