Question by CobMan151: What is the best brand of cordless power tools?
I’ve been thinking about buying a set of power tools to use in carpentry applications (Im tired of borrowing my grandfathers). I’m in the process of remodeling my home and need a circular saw, a drill/screwgun and a recipricating saw. I saw the Milwaukee V28 set and it looks like just what I need. My grandfather who is a very experienced carpender tells me Milwaukee is a very good brand. Tell me what you think…..thanx.

    First of all, this is an OUTSTANDING Drill/driver combo! I want to point out to all who have read reviews about the batteries being poor that the ones who have written those reviews have neglected to point out that the batteries that come with the set are 1.5 amp hour batteries. The 3.0 Amph batteries are sold with a seperate combo set (LXT-202) which is nearly twice the price. So, OBVIOUSLY they are not going to last as long. The benefit of the 1.5 amp batts. is that the drill is MUCH lighter, and since you can recharge the battery in fifteen min. its not an issue. The exception would be DAILY contractors. In addition, since you have 2 batteries you’re not gonna have any down time. I just recently built a 10×12 pergola that included 4×6 posts, 2×10 beams and 2×8 rafters in about 3 days and I charged a battery three times during that span. Never once was a battery dying ever an issue during the construction. If you really NEED to, you can purchase 2 additional batteries for around 80 bucks and you would still be about $100 under the LXT combo set. You could even purchase the 3.0 amph batteries for this set if you wanted (they’re interchangable!!). To give this combo set 2 stars because a reviewer neglects to take in account value in proportionate to functionality does a disservice to us all. If you’re like me, a very busy DIY’er, this combo set is perfect! It’s by far my favorite and most useful tool around the house. Here is somthing else to chew on. I bought my set for $180 online about a year ago(that included s&h) and now I haven’t seen this set for under $250 (NEW, not refurbished). Hmmmm, I wonder why? It must be those terrible batteries;) One more thing, if you watch alot of home improvement tv shows, look closely. Several of the contractors on the show have this exact combo set sitting in the background and/or being used in plane sight. If its good enough for them….. I hope this review has more accuratly explained this product and what it has to offer. The only dissappointment is that I can no longer get this for $180 for my friends 🙁

    Best Tools/Value Hands Down!!!!!!!, February 22, 2008

    By far the best drill and impact driver available today. I’ve been using cordless tools for 20 some years and this line by Makita surpasses the best ever offered. I’ve had really good luck with Bosch in recent years and will stand by those. If I get the longevity they promise then that will be the only remaining variable yet decided. Both the drill and driver will do all you ask, are very light weight, and as comfortable to work with as a tool made specifically for your hand. Anyone griping about battery life needs to rethink things a bit. If you want a battery that lasts you all day and into the night then by all means go get yourself a 192 lb. back pack of a battery that you”ll need wheels to move around. If you are a person within reason then give these drills and drivers serious consideration. The 1.5 hr battery will give you plenty of work without adding weight that no one wants to carry around. Want a lot more run time, spend a few bucks and add a 3.0 hr battery to an already near perfect kit. Anyone that actually uses tools daily would never expect more than this drill and driver will deliver and I have some seriously tough expectations of my tools. I have to, they, in my hands, earn my living. Makita has a clear winner here!

    This review is from: Makita LCT200W 18-Volt Compact Lithium-Ion Cordless 2-Piece Combo Kit (Tools & Home Improvement)

    I bought this kit to augment my 14.4v Dewalt for the installation of one of those giant wood swing-sets. I started off using the Dewalt for driving the hex-bolts into the T-Nuts, but once I used the impact driver for the first time, I hardly put it down again after. I had to be careful not to over-drive the bolts, becuase the torque would just keep on going.

    There were comments on previous reviews complaining about the battery life. This kit includes two 1.5 Ah batteries. I found these batteries to be adequate for a general home user – particularly with the 15-minute recharge cycle time. If long life is what you need, you should either purchse the kit that comes with the 3.0 Ah batteries, or I was told that the 3 Ah batteries are compatible with this kit, but not vice versa.

    I didn’t use the Drill Driver near as much as the impact driver, but overall, it met my expectations. Both were much lighter than my Dewalt, and overall, that weight made a huge difference on my own fatigue factor over the 4-day installation, than if I would have used the Dewalt exclusively. I have absolutely no regrets over this purchase!

    I am with “mrphaka” on this, Dewalt is the way to go. I see them at construction sights all the time. Expensive yes, but you get great quality as well.

    Rigid.

    They use to have a life time warrenty. Bought my husband a table saw and a circular saw about five years ago and they work very nicely. He built the girls a Victorian playhouse using them.

    Milwaukee V28 tool kit is very good (my brother has them-I use them) They are, however, not cheap – $ 600 (at Amazon.com) for drill, sawzall (recipricating saw) circular saw, drill and flash light. The V28 batteries are Lithium Ion, (the same type as laptops have) and last a long time, so unless you are doing a lot of work they probably will last all day. If you go with 18 volt nicad kit with the same tools in Milwaukee, it costs about $ 480, lithium Ion 18 volt $ 455. However, I have heard bad reviews of the 18 volt nicad Milwaukee batteries, although I have the 18 volt nicad drill, and haven’t had any problem with the batteries.

    Other brands: Dewalt. Dewalt makes a 36 volt lithium Ion kit, about $ 800 at Amazon, however, replacement batteries are expensive, $ 130 compared to $ 95 for Milwaukee V28. Bottem line: maybe Dewalt 36 volt price will go down, but for now, between the two of them I would go with Milwaukee.

    Other brands to consider: Makita makes a 18 volt lithium ion kit, light, compact, powerfull, $ 520 at Amazon for drill, impact driver, flashlight and circular saw. a good buy. bosch makes an 18 volt nicad kit: $ 500 for drill, recipricating saw, circular saw and flashlight. Dewalt also makes an 18 volt nicad kit:$ 480 for same equipment as Bosch. All these are good buys, any of them would be fine.

    Also, not recomended unless you are doing very little work Ryobi, $ 250-$ 350 for same equipment as Dewalt and Bosch, however, very low quality, frustating to use, and short life time. Good for low useage.

    Overall, go with the more expensive brands, and stay away from Rigid. Rigid is about as exspensive as the good brands and not as good. Best bets: Milwaukee, Dewalt, Bosch, Makita.

    I hope that this helps you!
