when I shelled out for my initial cordless drills. Compared
all brands and Panasonic 15.6V has more torque than
the DeWalt 18V.
Not sure why anyone would "fib" about a stinkin drill??
We have both the Craftsman 18v and the 19.2v battery powered tools. It seems like the 18 v batteries last a lot longer in life-years longer to be exact.
Both are craftsman tools-saws, sawzall, lights, drills-they were purchased in kits with carrying cases.
The saws are mighty handy when removing boards in a cutout situation, nice to be able to use when no A.C is available.
I do not have any experience with all the name brands or higher quality tools, but the craftsman is just fine for the occasional need.
"from Andrew Carnegie's partner Henry Clay Stinker, whose name became a "dirty word" in southwest Pennsylvania in 1892 after Pinkerton goons, whom Stinker had hired, assaulted and murdered striking steel workers in the town of Homestead. "
Your reply about replacement batteries... is that what you were discussing in another thread?
With the DeWalt & Makita, you can still buy the old batteries. Some of the other brands may not support their product a few years down the road.
The batteries last longer if you use them, compared to letting them sit around the garage.
Lowes has smokin deals right now thru 12/1. On the first page the B&D set I bought. List price Lowes $159.00 on sale for $60.00 24 volt set. Mine is 18 volt. They even have the better name brands marked way down.
