Makita LCT209 12volt Drill/Driver Combo Kit

Makita LCT209 12volt Drill/Driver Combo Kit

1279 days ago by Gord Graff | 9 comments »

Makita LCT 209 Combo Kit: Does size really matter? It does when you’re using a cordless drill or driver all day or when you find yourself working over your head or in tight spaces, like building or installing kitchen cabinets. Makita recently introduced its 12 volt, LCT 209 12volt Combo Kit that includes the 3/8” Drill (model #FD02), the ¼” Impact Driver (model #DT01) and the battery charger (model #DC10WB) and what a combination it is. A versatile, light weight, well balanced combinati...

A great buy for the price at Lowes Hardware

A great buy for the price at Lowes Hardware

1881 days ago by cabinetmaster | 16 comments »

My boss went to Lowes Hardware the other night and came back and handed me this combo set of drill and impact. Lowes has this on sale this week for only $149. The Impact by itself sells for $129. I used it all day Friday and let me tell you. This impact alone has more power than the regular 12 volt Hitachi impact driver. And light. Every time I pick it up I wonder if someone took the battery out. This impact and drill are so light weight and comfortable. You can use these drills all day an...

Porter-Cable 12v Lithium Combo Drill and Driver

Porter-Cable 12v Lithium Combo Drill and Driver

1290 days ago by WoodJediNTraining | 14 comments »

By no means am I an expert qualified to give a professional review of this combo pack. But as the owner of a Remodeling company and a hobbyist woodworker I wanted to give my input on the dynamic duo… First off, Guys everything you hear about “Size Matters” is a myth in this case!! When it comes to the compact power of these mini work horses, don’t let the size fool you.. After purchasing my first set, I put it straight into the mix. From the very first jobsite, t...

Ridgid Sub compact drill drive set

Ridgid Sub compact drill drive set

1947 days ago by Bob #2 | 24 comments »

I’ve been using a couple of offshore 18 volt Ni cads for about a year as my Dewalts wont hold a charge any longer and I saw no advantage to replacing their batteries.I had been looking at the Ridgid standard 18 volt Li cordless but when I saw this one at the Borg I had to try it. The tools are very compact and feel well made with a good balance although heavy for their size, I can live with that as they are still lighter than my old drills.The torque is amazing and blew me away at 12 vo...

Hitachi Cordless Drill

Hitachi Cordless Drill

1630 days ago by Kjuly | 21 comments »

My old Delta cordless drill, drilled it’s last hole after four plus years of service. It was a 14 volt drill that served me well. The drill is in decent shape but the batteries would not hold a charge long enough to drive a 2? drywall screw. To replace the two batteries would cost over $75.00. I do not want to put that kind of money in to batteries with the life of the drill motor uncertain. Time to go shopping for a new cordless drill. First, lets look at what I need in a drill and ho...

G reat little impact driver - Bosch PS40-2

G reat little impact driver - Bosch PS40-2

2236 days ago by GaryK | 16 comments »

I was looking for a small driver so that I wouldn’t keep having to swap bits out in my drill. I wasn’t really looking for an impact driver, but then I found about the rebate Bosch is currently having. Buy an impact driver and get a PS20 (non-impact version) for free. Now it doesn’t include a battery but the PS40 does include 2. So now I get both for the price of one. I got it for the out the door price of $142. How does it perform? Well, I drove a #8×3” deck...

Dewalt DWD112  - A satisfactory tool.

Dewalt DWD112 - A satisfactory tool.

2236 days ago by Mark Shymanski | 4 comments »

I’ve been using battery powered drills for several years now and have grown accustomed to the cord free nature and the power characteristics, but my two aging Craftsman drills are showing their age and were not up to the heavy duty demands of screwing up the ceiling in my garage so Saturday morning it was off to Canadian Tire and Home Depot I went. Looked at the generic brands at CT and decided if I was going to spend about $80 I may as well get a name brand drill. CT didn’t have...

A good impact driver for the money

A good impact driver for the money

2058 days ago by ferstler | 6 comments »

I own two of these (one for each hand; OK, that is a joke), and you can see both in the photo. I obtained one a few years back and picked up the other a few months ago when I was feeling flush. I do not feel so bad about buying two of the things, since together they cost about the same as one such unit from any number of more upscale manufacturers. These are 18-volt jobs and they are part of the Ryobi One + battery-powered tool catalog collection. This means you can buy the driver without ...

Review - Milwaukee 12v Compact Driver (Model #2401-22)

Review - Milwaukee 12v Compact Driver (Model #2401-22)

2157 days ago by DaveH | 9 comments »

Great little tool. I’d recommend it without reservation. I recently drove 50+ 3” stainless screws into pressure treated lumber without a battery swap. Drives a little slower than my 18v Dewalt but I’m not complaining. I’d definitely buy another if it needed replacing. Pros 12v Cordless Driver kit includes 2 batteries, charger, case and two 1/4” locking driver bits Driver clutch has 14 + 1 settings to protect screws when driving into stock Weighs i...
