Regardless of whether or not you are a construction professional looking to outfit yourself with nothing but the best power tools to get the job done right the first time around or a homeowner/DIYer looking to start putting things together around the house to save quite a bit of money along the way, finding the best cordless drill kit is probably step number one in making sure you have all the right tools going forward.
With so many different options available to pick and choose from, however, finding the best cordless drill kit is nowhere near as simple or as straightforward as it could or should be.
Hopefully we can shed a little bit of extra light on the subject for you!
What’s your budget look like?
The overwhelming majority of cordless drill sets really aren’t going to set you back any more than a couple hundred dollars maximum, but you can find cordless drill kits from anywhere between £400 and £50 – and hitting that real sweet spot between price, performance, and power can be a little bit tough.
We can tell you that (like most everything else) the better tools are going to set you back a little bit more, so the higher your budget is the more likely you are to walk away with professional tools you can count for years and years to come.
What kind of jobs are you going to be tackling?
Secondly, you need to know about the kind of work that you are going to subject your new cordless drill set to.
Professional contractors, carpenters, and other tradespeople are going to put their drills – and all of their other tools, for that matter – through the ringer on a day to day basis. They are going to need incredibly powerful tools, incredibly precise tool, and tools that are as durable and as reliable as they get.
Homeowners and DIYers, on the other hand, really don’t have to expect the sun and the moon when it comes to their drills. Their paychecks don’t depend on it. That’s not to say that purchasing professional grade tools would be advantageous for those serious about getting the best possible results done, just that you might not have to go overboard when you’ll only be driving screws into walls to hang picture frames.
What kind of accessories will you need?
At the end of the day, your cordless drill kit is going to include at least a handful of different accessories but you may need to invest in others that extend the functionality and utility of this combo kit all the same.
You want to be sure that your new drill comes with a battery charger and at least one spare battery (though a second speed charger and two or three spare batteries isn’t a bad investment). Your drill kit should also come with a carrying case for a hard case to make sure that your tools stay as good as brand-new for as long as humanly possible.
Other accessories include a secondary compact drill/driver, flashlights, jobsite radios, cordless saws, reciprocating saws, numerous drill bits, and that’s just the tip of the iceberg!
By outlining your expectations in advance (as well as your budget) you will be able to find the perfect drill for you going forward!
