Question by John: How do I run power tools on portable power?
I’d like to run some DeWalt corded power tools…drill, reciprocating saw, etc…off of some sort of portable power. I don’t want to buy both corded and un-corded models of every tool. How can I use a corded tool when I don’t have an outlet nearby? Suggestions?

Just buy a portable generator like most of the contractors in the world have done.

    Have owned this for about 3.5 months now for light projects around the house. It’s pretty bare bones, but does the job well. I really appreciate the power from a corded drill after getting fed up with how weak my old cordless was. At this point, the toughest thing I’ve put it through was drilling two holes into brick — it got hot but performed its task admirably. Otherwise, for drilling through wood, drywall, etc — has worked fine without any issues.

    Assuming that it’s durable over the longer term, the only cons are:

    1) It feels a bit “cheap” in the hand (but, what do you expect for $25?)

    2) The chuck has some give in it (when you press the bit into the target, there is some initial give). Not sure if it was engineered this way on purpose, but was a little disconcerting at first. But, doesn’t affect any outcomes.

    3) The soft carrying case is fine (I actually prefer it over a hard case), but could have been made slightly larger as the drill has to be in a “V” shape in order for the zipper to zip. Another 1/2 inch of height would have done the job without being so snug. Strange choice. Oh well.

    Overall: Price is great and I’ve been quite pleased with this purchase so far. Probably not the drill of choice for industrial use — but works just fine for occasional projects around the house.

    UPDATE: Have had this for a year now, still works great and still recommended.

    What can i say that is interesting about a Drill that works to spec. Nothing. But non-intersting I can say more. But whats the point ? It is orange so it is easy to see. It plugs in and works. It is variable speed. It is reversible. Just like practically every other drill motor on the market. Oh, it does fit in MY hand comfortably. Yours is another matter. I also received a Dewalt drill motor and it has more torque. but then again it is a $55.00 unit versus this. I got the Dewalt free 2 weeks after I bought this. Oh well. I will just pack it up and gift it for Xmas. Would I reccomend ? For the price it is worth it. If you need one for heavy duty 8 hour a day use, then no. You would need really strong arms and hands and a bigger drill motor. But as I drive a desk for a living I can safely say I will not need such a thing.

    You probably found this review totaly worthless and just wasted 20 seconds of your life reading this.

    I bought this drill to replace my older model B&D drill. The only reason I bought this drill was that Amazon had it on sale for $30. My old B&D drill just needed a part which was not available. In reality I do not like this drill much. The chuck assembly sucks. Most of the time when you are drilling the drill will get loose and you have to stop it and retighten it. I usually have to use a vice grip and adjustable pliers to get the drill tight enough to finish the job. The other problem is when you take your drill out, because it slips,it now has burrs on the smooth part to the point that it will not go back in it’s holder without taking a file to it to remove the burrs. My advice is do not buy this drill. I don’t know what happened to the old B&D (well I do) but I rather have a drill with a chuck that uses a key. Spend more money and get a good drill.

    Well they have two types of power but the one that utilizes several batteries wouldn’t last long. Your best bet is to buy a 4 stroke generator with wheel kit installed. These things are heavy & you do not want to have to carry them everywhere.

    I would buy a used one because a lot of people get free generators from FEMA then turn around & sell them a few yrs later when they just sit in their garage. Just make sure it starts & runs smooth because sometimes when you let gas generators set, the carbs gum up & some carbs are very expensive. I priced one on my troybilt for $ 190 but got lucky & found it in England for $ 80.
