    Default power tools

    Hi there,

    I'd like to have your opinion about the term "power tools"...I use to translate it as "herramientas eléctricas" but some times there are not electrical, but gas-operated, for example. How would you translate it, then?

    Cheers

    Jack

    Hi Jack! In such a case I'd still use "herramientas eléctricas", as this term is also used when they are gas-operated, so keep it and do not worry!
    Cheers!

    Serán "herramientas eléctricas, hidráulicas y neumáticas" entonces.

    Se trata de "herramientas motorizadas". Éstas abarcan cualquier tipo de fuente de energía que no sea la fuerza humana: hidráulica, eléctrica, combustión interna, etc.
