Ken Tueffel's mechanic's toolboxes
When you are recognized as the best, and you work for the best, then you choose to use products that are the best. That's what Ken Tueffel, automobile technician at Earnhardt Ford in Tempe, Arizona, believes. Chosen as the ASE Ford Technician of the Year for 2000, Ken has spent the better part of 40 years working on cars produced by the automobile company which he proudly maintains is the best in the world.
For Ken, working on cars is something he made up his mind to do early on. "I guess cars are in my blood. I started tinkering at a young age, and was into drag racing in the '60's. My first real job was in a gas station – I figured working on cars was a pretty good thing to do."
Some four decades later, Ken still insists on working with nothing but the best. Especially when it comes to his tools. He's had plenty of time to evaluate what works and what doesn't. So it didn't take a huge jump in logic for him to choose Lista storage solutions to organize his tools of the trade.
Thinking inside and outside the box.
"I purchased Lista because of its durability and fine features. I have never had such a high quality product before! And it's worth the price (which was a lot less than I would have expected). These products will last a lifetime. I didn't do any comparison shopping because I don't think there's a better product out there."
Ken has two Lista mobile tool cabinets for use at work, and a 10-foot high Lista Storage Wall® unit in his home garage.
"I use my smaller mobile cabinet for parts storage. I configured it to be used for smaller items, with the side door compartment for large bulky items. The larger mobile cabinet is for tools. My tools are a lot easier to find now, compared to my previous tool box. I don't need to jam tools into the drawers!"
The deal is in the details.
When asked to give an example of what makes Lista storage drawer cabinets so much better, Ken cited the little things that he says go beyond what you'd expect from an inferior product. "The drawers roll so easily, with no dragging or sagging. And they have a classy appearance. I also like the fact that you can rearrange the compartments to fit your needs."
Ken holds true to his beliefs at home. Beside his Lista Storage Wall® system, he's quick to point out that his home garage also contains: "Ford products, of course! And a 1978 GMC pickup that I'll probably have forever."
