In addition to new tools, each year REED makes end-user driven improvements and refinements to existing tools. The “Best Ever” designation is given to a tool whose quality, benefits, or performance has been significantly improved over all previous versions. These continuous improvements are advantages to buying REED. 2022 brings more additions and improvements to the breadth and depth of REED’s tool line. Recent additions include the Bear Hug™ PE Squeeze Tool, upgrades on the Bevel Boss™ Cordless Pipe Beveler, Pump Stick® Water Transfer Pump and several more.
