Obligitory eye candy, Lithium Ion Cordless Impacts: Let us know what you end up getting and how you like it. And they are backed by a Dewalt 3-year limited warranty for added peace of mind. Plenty of impacts for most screws and reasonably-sizes bolts out there. Enjoy dual-range, variable-speed control and a comfortable grip for job-specific performance and minimal fatigue. All that cordless goodness does come at a cost.
With impacts you only need about a quarter of the force on the driver, you get to let the tool do so much more of the work. The quality of the accessories you use on your tools can make a huge difference. For example, some brands may have a kit that's great for just drills and cutting. The number one issue I found during my research is that no matter what tool brand you choose, the battery quality is not yet consistent, the batteries are not as dependable as they should be, and you'll need more than one and a charger and power source for the charger to be sure you have a working drill. The end result: a genetically pre-disposed, socially sculpted home improvement machine! The Home Depot sells every one of our brands in a value pack kit, so instead of picking up a cordless drill one day then a reciprocating saw the next time around, save a good deal of money and grab the entire kit.
This post is sponsored by The Home Depot. Worst experience when driving a screw into a project? The key to its strong showing is the powerful, efficient brushless motor. Makita has recently made a chroma-curious move and released a new line of 18v Cordless tools in, wait for it, black! It lights up when you press the trigger, providing an ongoing snapshot of charge level. I thought lugging my tools from the outside shop into the back door, up the stairs to work on a project was bad. Hi Boris123,Adam444 gave you a good rundown on whats available in cordless power tools. For his complete profile, please visit our page.
Which brings us to this current review. These Makita bits are engineered to fit just right and they really do. Ryobi tools are available elsewhere, as well, and the company lent us the P825 Starter Combo Kit, which includes a large-capacity battery, a circular saw, drill, charger, and carrying bag. It took a long time, binding several times in the process. Even though this tool comes with 2 Slim Packs, you can purchase a Fat Pack separately and get more run time--2. The tools are lighter, more compact, offer plenty of power, and typically cost less than their 18 volt siblings.
I have some older nicad Ryobi's that have mostly gotten the job done. Our shop tools include Hitachi,Milwaukee, De Walt and Makita. For one thing, things can get messy when it comes to battery platforms and chargers. The extra weight, combined with a thicker grip, may fatigue your hands sooner. . This drill and its larger battery capacity and voltage shrugged off every test, from boring with a spade bit to delicately sinking screws into wallboard.
Before I 'hammer' away a 'cutting edge' solution to your question, I've included a great video guide that talks in detail about selecting the right cordless power tool. It also has an anti-slip comfort grip. The kit includes both Sub-Compact tools, 18V charger, two 2. It feels great in your hand and has lots of torque. Whether you have Ryobi, Dewalt, Ridgid, Milwaukee or Makita, keep extra batteries on hand. I got my hands on these Impact Gold Makita Power Bits and I love them.
While some bulkier 18v tools can feel awkward and cumbersome to wield, the Makita sub-compact tools instead feel like a natural extension of your arm albeit with a lot more torque. Dewalt-built high power, high efficiency motor delivers 425 unit watts out of max power for superior performance.

Cheers, aboveaveragejoe I have to drop in and say that if all the cordless tools you have used are Ni-Cad you are in for a serious surprise the first time you get to work with L-ion. I will say that the NiCad batteries are hit and miss but so far had great luck with the lithium ions. But, I love my grandchildren, my daughter and my son-in-law.
Hope this helps you out, and if you have any future projects at the cabin, feel free to let us know and post some pics of the place, sounds like its going to be a great escape! Pairing the with and you have a perfect match. Pictured with a Fat Pack battery. The comes with both the drill and driver, two batteries, a charger station and storage bag. As a starting point, this Makita drill is outstanding. Even outdoor power equipment is making the rapid progression toward cordless technology. Makita is a worldwide manufacturer of industrial power tools, pneumatics and power equipment, and offers a wide range of industrial accessories.
