Who makes the best cordless drill?


As a craftsman, I'm forever messing with drills and saws, but I wonder what others here on HP might think is the best brand of cordless drill?

    Thanks! I think I prefer the Milwaukee, but I'm going to look around some before I buy. I don't need a big 18 volt...I really need one of the newer smaller ones that still have lots of torque.

    Hey - I will check that out, and I will link to you in the one I'm building as well.

    You've also told me something I didn't know about Makita with the batteries!

    Hey Alan! I've never heard of the German one - but I'd bet it is outstanding.

    Makita has been here a long long time - but a lot of folks like the DeWalt or others ...as they seem to be heavier duty or.."better" than the Makita.

    I'm interested in these Mastercraft tools then! I'm not familiar with them - I don't know why I don't see those in Texas.

    Yes! I recently got to use one of theirs - I'd never heard of them before. A superintendent on a job I was working loaned me his Porter Cable 18 volt drill - and it was fantastic.

    I'm "in the market" for one. DeWalt is a great product!
