The 53-piece VDE tool assortment Hybrid (1100-1094) contains the perfect combination of equipment for repair and maintenance work on any make of hybrid or electric vehicle. The extensive range of tools can also be used to carry out many other electronic tasks.

The range includes a reversible ratchet 3093 U 3/8", socket bit inserts in all metric sizes from 6-22 mm, 3/8" screwdriver bits in key widths 8, 10 and 12 mm, plus 3/8" extensions 75 and 150 mm. Both screwdriver slots in sizes 2.5, 3.5, 4 and 5.5 mm as well as in TX, T20, T25 and T30, and cross-heads in PH 1, 2 and 3 complete the range. Along with cable cutters 200 mm, universal pliers 10", heavy-duty side cutter 180 mm and a cable knife 180 mm, the set contains power combination pliers 200 mm, bent nose pliers 200 mm and flat nose pliers 160 mm with a two-component handle, and meter connection fittings in sizes 1, 2 and 3.

The entire Hybrid 1100-1094 range by GEDORE is insulated to EN 60900/EC 60900. The wrenches and sockets have check-tool insulation for safe working to 1000 volts. This special multilayer insulation consists of red insulation on the inside and yellow on the inside. The two layers in the different contrasting colours are used to check for damage. As soon as the red insulation is damaged and the underlying yellow insulating layer exposed, the tool must be replaced.

The tools are all transported neatly and safely in the robust, practical GEDORE L-BOXX with check-tool insert. The entire GEDORE BOXX®en system is compatible with the Sortimo vehicle equipment in service vehicles. The two-colour check-tool insert also makes it easier to sort the tools and check that everything has been put away properly after work.

GEDORE also offers smaller VDE tool sets to complement the VDE tool range Hybrid and that can also be used independently. The 3-piece VDE plier set in L-BOXX MINI (1102-005 VDE), for instance, consists of three tools that cover the most common electrical installation tasks in the workshop and home. The multiple pliers 200 mm (VDE 8131 AB) and heavy-duty side cutter 180 mm (VDE 8314), are joined by the SLIM DRIVE (VDE 2162 PZ) screwdriver to complete the set. The pliers are housed neatly and practically in the L-BOXX MINI.

The VDE multiple pliers are ideal for the requirements of electricians and, by also acting as cable cutters, stripping blades, crimping profilers and toothed gripping surface, are a space-saving all-rounder. The cable cutter easily cuts cables of up to 5 x 2.5 mm² or a diameter of 12 mm. The stripping blade is ideal for wires of 1.5 mm² and 2.5 mm², while crimping conductor end-sleeves is easy with the special profile.

Thanks to its long blades, the power side cutter by GEDORE appeals when cutting cables and soft and hard wires. Cutting hard wire with a maximum diameter of 2.0 mm is almost effortless thanks to the high leverage. The slender head also facilitates working in confined spaces.

The ultra-small blade diameter of the VDE screwdriver SLIM DRIVE can even reach workpieces that are deep inside screw shafts – naturally with full mechanical and electrical safety. The ergonomically shaped 3-component Power Grip handle also makes working fatigue-free.

All the tools are piece-tested and insulated.
