Snap-on says the new 282-piece kit is ideal for apprentices

Snap-on says it is excited to release its new 282-piece Classic Starter Kit, an entry-level offering to suit apprentices and those new to the automotive industry who are building their tool set.
The 282-piece Classic Starter Kit comes with all the tools required and is housed within the ever-popular Snap-on 54” Classic Roll Cab.
The Classic Rollcab is made in the USA using top quality materials and the 282-piece tool set includes a range of must-have tools that will serve both beginner and skilled technicians alike.
Snap-on says this starter kit provides quality and quantity of tools to cover off on the range of work that technicians will be completing in the early years of their career.
In addition to the tool control foam in the drawers, that have been used to organise the collection of hand tools; a new addition for the kit is two power tool foam drawers that include the most popular Snap-on 14.4v and 18v power tools from each range.
With an unprecedented number of tools and the ability to choose from red, blue, and black roll cabs, this allows mechanics to customise their kit and stand out from the crowd in their workplace.
Snap-on brand Ambassador Jake ‘Drift Squid’ Jones has recently taken delivery of his Snap-on 282-piece Classic Starter Kit and has been impressed with the variety of tools provided, which have served as an ideal starting point for the work he is completing on his RB M3 drift car.
“This kit comes with the basics that allow you to pretty well rebuild an entire car. Not only does the kit allow me to maintain the RBM3 and Sonvia drift cars, it allows it to be done quicker than before,” Jake said.
“All the tools are neatly organised and in one spot and with the 54” classic roll cab being on wheels I can have it right next to either car.”
Jake’s incredible RB M3 often returns from drift events requiring a host of repairs and adjustments before it is ready to hit the track again. Snap-on says the 282-piece Classic Starter Kit allows Jake to perform work on his car in his workshop or at the track.
“The starter kit will allow the job of prepping the car before an event to be quicker. I can then roll the cab straight into my enclosed trailer and head to the racetrack. It’s a game changer for me,” Jake said.
“Snap-on has a reputation of manufacturing the best tools in the world. It is unreal to be working with Snap-on. Like any journey, the starter kit is the beginning of what will be an amazing tool collection that never ends.”
The Snap-on 282-piece Classic Starter Kit is available now.
