Title: CORDLESS TOOLS
Post by: chic on March 12, 2008, 05:26:05 PM
Hi guys,just was wondering what kind of cordless drills yopu guys use if any.During my training with A&E i haVE NOT USED much of any cordless.I purchesed the bosch ps-10 right  angled nut driver.it has slow start,variable speed and feels good in my hands.I bought it because of it's clutching system,it wont over torqe any screws when going into plastic or critical applications.
 Any thoughts on this subject ,I would love to here.

I use an 18 volt B&D Firestorm. Runs all week long on one charged battery, although it came with 2. Quick-chuck, etc....and it feels good in my hand.

The good companies each have a color (Bosch is also good and also blue but is less popular in the US):

Yellow = DeWalt
Red = Milwaukee
Blue  = Mikita

Drill drivers are drills that can also drive.  Impact drivers are drivers that can also drill.  They are now often sold in sets.

I have a Ryobi set from Home Depot 18 volt, impact driver and drill with 2 lithium batteries in a bag. Bought them for $99.00. Work great.

I use a Dewalt 12 volt with lithium batteries. Lasts a week and a half. I also use the flashlight that you can purchase separately and really like it. Lasts all week on one charge The drill has 3 LED's and is compact so it fits in my bag. The flashlight has a swivel head, magnetic base and and a stand that folds out.

I have that Milwaukee driver.  I've had it for at least ten years. I've gone through six batteries and I even replaced the housing when it cracked. It doesn't have enough power to break loose most screws.  The shaft is locked when idle, so you have to twist it to break the screw loose and then power it the rest of the way out. I think I cracked the housing from twisting it too hard a few times. It sits mostly unused since I got my Bosch PS20.  It's a good driver but the Bosch is much better.

 I use matco cordless driver,1/4ratchett,drill,light and 1/4 impact that uses the same battery.Best battery life that I have seen. There 3/8 and 1/2 impact are strong.I pulled the basket nut (1 11/16) off a ge washer when a corded Dewalt could not.

Did they make them that long ago?

Yes they been around for awhile. It has good torque on low setting. it will remove and install wood screws in the face frame of hardwood cabinets. And if you use it like a regular screwdriver its hard to slip the clutch.

I also have this  cordless drill with 4 extra batteries.Love this drill but in weather time i keep a battery in my jacket in the house as the lithium battery don't like the cold.They are fully charge and once they warm up they work like a charm.

I had that driver and had the same problem in cold weather. Used to lay the battery on the dash with the defroster on so it would warm up on my way to the first call.The Dewalt I use now has Lithium batteries but I don't have that problem.

I use an 18v Makita drill, and a 18v makita right angle drill.


  Also a b/d small battery powered screwdriver for tight spots.  Some customers freak out when they see me with a big drill, but that with magnetic tips make jobs go so quick.
