CORDLESS DRILL BUYING GUIDE

Cordless drills are becoming popular these days since they can become a huge time saver. For any professional contractor, this is a must-have tool. Most people are delighted to have cordless drills due to their high degree of versatility and the extraordinary power they offer. These machines save you the burden of dragging the cord around the house or a job site.

Deprived of the discomfort caused by the cord, cordless drills provide high mobility allowing you to work in bigger areas; however, you will need to recharge the battery periodically.

The drills are then split into three categories:

  1. i) Combi Drill:

Combi drills are the best option if you have a big project which involves lots of drilling and driving. These kinds of power tools are capable of drilling holes into wood and metal within the shortest amount of time possible. Combi drills can be used to drive screws. Makita XPH102 18V LXT Lithium-Ion Cordless 1/2-Inches Hammer Driver-Drill Kit is highly recommended.

  1. ii) Drill/driver

These are the most common power tools available in the market. A compact drill/driver is typically fitted with two-speed settings and multiple torque settings. Apart from these, the power tools also feature a forward/reverse function, an adjustable clutch and variable speed.

iii) Impact Drivers

This power tool is equipped with a quick-release style mechanism known as hex chuck which tends to differ from other chucks available on drill drivers and combi drills. An impact driver is all about the peak torque, coupled with high impact levels.

Before buying a cordless drill look for

  1. i) Battery power and long runtimes.
  2. ii) Variable RPMs.

iii) Adequate Torque.

  1. iv) Chuck size.
  2. v) Comfortable handling and a decent warranty.
