Essential Tools and Toys For Irrigators

Here ya go boys, the chance to finally list your equipment has arrived.

Feel free to also list the tools and toys you would like to acquire in the near future, as well as those you will not even consider.

This is not intended to be a chest-thumping thread ... so don't make it one.

Two bent flags to do locates with.
Oh yeah, and a Rigid Seektech SR-20.

Reading glasses for the fine print
Bent spoon for trenching
5-gallon bucket (camo, of course) and stopwatch for flow tests

That line locater is pretty cool. Does it work on non-metallic objects?

I walk up with these in hand
Irritool has:
small flat screwdrive
large flat screw driver
phillips head screw driver
hex key for PGP adjustments
hex key for toro adjustment
paperclip size "poker" for clearing nozzles
punch for making a hole for emitters

and the Knipex pliers

And for the cold weather guys, a quick trigger torch is a must for repairing cracked copper and brass

My auto mechanic was ranting and raving about his Knipex pliers last week and said that he couldn't understand how I could operate with just channel locks.

You can run a "sonde" down a pipe to locate pipes that do not have conductors in them.
Also the device can locate live electric lines and radio frequency lines with out any transmitter needed.
Not worth a darn for locating solenoids though!
