    Great combo, December 9, 2011

    This review is from: PORTER-CABLE PC218C-2 18-Volt NiCad Cordless 2-Tool Combo Kit (Tools & Home Improvement)

    I have read some negative reviews on other sites that were less than “good” in regards to this combo. Most of those were from guys who claimed to be finish carpenters or contract professionals. The average home handy man may consider these types more valid personnel to review tools. But I asked myself, what sort of professionals put their livelihoods in the hands of anything less than the best tools? It’s like anything. If you want professional grade you buy professional grade.

    It’s like a guy I know who races Mountain bikes professionally. He can justify spending top dollar on his rig. And he should if he wants to compete. But giving a negative review to a bike that is a great rig for the weekend trail warrior is both invalid and unfair if it’s not meeting his expectations during a big race. Same principle.

    So now, the Porter Cable Combo. I bought it mostly for the saw. I already had a Makita cordless drill which is still second to none after decades of work. But for the price, I figured I would get this because it had an extra battery and an extra drill is never a bad thing. I used the saw cutting 2×4 for framing out a basement. I also used it on ply-wood up to one inch thick. I found it to be surprisingly powerful. It made clean and accurate cuts and the battery life was never an issue. I made hundreds of cuts over two days and only charged the battery over night between those two days.

    I used the drill as well to see how it performed. It was fine. I had no chuck issues like the previous poster. No wobble at all. I use screws instead of framing nails and this one drove them almost as cleanly and about 80 percent as easily as my much higher priced Makita. No pilot holes either. Same thing. Battery life didn’t seem an issue.

    I figure as a home owner, who does not do professional work, this combo is a great set for the average handy man who does weekend home remodeling or what not.

    If you are a contractor, then perhaps giving negative reviews to something like this is more of an issue of you not doing your due diligence prior to investing in the RIGHT tools, the back bone of your trade.

    Great Drill and Saw kit., December 25, 2008

    This review is from: PORTER-CABLE PC218C-2 18-Volt NiCad Cordless 2-Tool Combo Kit (Tools & Home Improvement)

    I’ve been a Porter Cable fan for many years. I’m not a professional in construction but some of my friends are. I however have domne a lot of work around my house and Porter Cable has been my weapon of choice across the board for durability and safety. I’ve built a deck out back that is huge and even added an extension onto my home that is 12′ X 36′ being used for a closed in roofed porch. Porter Cable tools did it all with the help of my wife and myself.

    That being said, There were some recent projects I needed to do of a minor nature like install the braces for the new 46″ Plasma TV to the wall. I discovered that the batteries for my Porter Cable Drill would not hold a charge. Well, I had the thing for many years and it lasted longer than average. It paid for itself. The batteries are no longer made. Time to get a new drill.[…]

    I put both the drill and the saw through the paces cuz I had some more projects I had put on the side for awhile. Guys like to play with new toys like this. Gotta say this. The batteries totally REFUSE to wear down after what I put both tools through! Both the drill and the saw out performed what I expected for tools twice the price! I sawed and drilled everything from pressed board to Pressure Treated 2X4’s. Both the drill and saw powered up just as if they were plugged into an outlet. There was no loss of power or torque after around four hours of steady use. Due to the projects that I had put on hold, I needed more than the 18 tooth blade that came with the saw and bought a 24 tooth, 40 tooth and 90 tooth blades. I highly recommend doing that. I also highly recommend buying this combo kit. It’s awesome.
