It never fails. A guy needs a small pickup to haul garden supplies and half the replies say that nothing less than a Peterbilt with a sleeper will do.

Been using the HF Hercules stuff for a couple of years - drill/drivers, recip saw, circ saw, and LED light. Everything except the LED light is brushless. LED light is only 280 lumens, whereas others (Dewalt, at least, is 2x or maybe even 4x brighter).

If you expect the twin pack for $99 to be awesome....

Bosch

From lowes

18v

Gets used about every other day for a 5 minute and sometimes all day project. Same batteries and no problems for the last 5-6 years I’ve had it. Drop it off ladders, throw it off the roof down into the yard, etc. still good.

Lowes used to run a deal about Chrimmus Time, the drill, 2 batts and charger for 99 dollars. Usually it was like 179$

So anyway they did that sale again the next Chrimmus and I bought the set again just to have those the two batteries.

Look at what each brand offers in the same voltage/battery type and see if there's other things you can use. My next door neighbor has all Dewalt 20V tools and we use his hedge trimmer. We bought a Ego cordless leaf blower, string trimmer, and self propelled mower. All use the same batteries and while the mower's battery is larger (thicker) the smaller batteries will work if it dies before were done. I bit the bullet and bought a Dewalt combo drill and impact driver this year. I have used them more than I had anticipated. I use the drill to anneal my brass.

Just to add, I also have had a Dewalt set of 18v since 1998 and they still kinda sorta work. I let Batteries Plus rebuild the batteries once.

Batteries Plus, probably don’t have those “wist ofthee missyssissyssippi” as shubert says.

The one item I have any current urge for is still nearly $20 cheaper elsewhere. LOL

I'd look at the battery 'ecosystem' as part of your decision. Nice to have several batteries that will drive any/all of your tools. And you will get more tools than the drill (impact wrench!)

Milwaukee has the battery stuff down, IMHO, and their tools are top notch.

Last Summer I was up that the old family vacation house and needed to run a couple of screws in to fix something. The only thing I could find was an old corded drill and a screw driver. I told myself that I was going to buy a cordless drill and leave it there for the next time. I went up a few weeks ago and forgot to buy one. Sho-nuff, got up there and the freakin gutter was falling off the front of the house. So I go to the local lumber yard and they only sell Bosch. I told the guy that the thing might get used 10 minutes a year for the house and I didn't want to spend a million bucks. I told him that I sold building materials and we got in a long conversation about the prices of schit. He sold me a little 12V Bosch and knocked $40 off the price. Nice guy. The bad boy came with two batteries and a handy dandy carrying case. Perfect for what I need.

For 3-4 times a year I’d get this. More reliable than Ryobi and it’s cordless.

A push drill is more compact.

Looking to buy relatively cheap




Home Depot has some great sales on some combo kits of Ryobi right now. I have several Ryobi drills, impacts, etc, and they have never let me down. They are great for home owners and weekend warriors. One thing I like is their "One +" batteries never change, other than hour ratings, and they have a lot of tools that use them. Don't listen to the Ryobi haters, I have abused mine more than once with no problems. Unless you use them to make a living every day, it makes no sense to spend too much for a drill, etc. The guys that tell you Ryobi is junk and Milwaukee is the real deal, may not know they are both part of TTi.
