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?
sort by best latest
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.
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 don't know what you are doing, but we were in HVAC. All overhead work. The 18 was pretty heavy, so we got 14.4 and they worked just as well and made your day much easier. Good luck.
IDONO - I do HVAC and electrical. I really need a seven to nine volt, and an 18 volt for myself :)
OK. I screwed up. We went to a 9.6 drill, not 14. My bad! We used a lot of Dewalt but replacement batteries cost almost as much as the drill. All of the foreign ones are junk. Bosch was fair. Back to Porter Cable.
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.
Hey Wes, Mastercraft can be found at Canadian Tire (obviously in Canada) and I thought that maybe they could be purchased at Sears as well. So maybe Sears is your best bet. My 20v is compact cordless and has a ton of power, I love it.
