Absolutely they are! I work in construction and can honestly say that these tools are well worth the price you pay. They do have their limits but I think for what you plan to use them for, you won’t be disappointed. Of coarse there are great differences in the performance based on the voltage you get, as well as the type of batteries they have, bigger tends to be better and the Lithium batteries have a better overall lifespan. I’ve always used Dewalt 14.4v because I didn’t want the bulky 18v and have always had plenty of power for everything I’ve done. I also have an 18v hammer drill and recently bought the 12v drill with the lith battery and was surprised how strong it is. The one thing I’ve learned is that if they don’t get regular use( charge and drain) the batteries won’t last as long and can cost nearly as much as the tool to replace. My impact driver and hammer drill are both over 7 years old, my cordless saw is over 12 and looks brand new and the 12v is 2 years old. Like I said you won’t regret the purchase.
