I have a DeWalt 18V. Its OK, it came with an extra battery and a carrying case. I'm not sure its worth significant more than a Rigid or Kobalt brand for just normal use around the house.

For 3-4 hours use annually the poster said.

We have several Bauer cordless tools[drill/driver etc] and all have done fine and the batteries have been GTG for 2-3 years now.
Added the pole saw last month and was surprised how much cutting I could do on one charge.

I have a Bauer chipping hammer I've been using for 5 yrs to take up tile, still works fine just keep it greased.

I would go with the Milwaukee M12 for occasional use. The price isn't going to be that much more than the lower end stuff and it has tons of different tool options that use the M12 batteries.

Have only owned two cordless drill products since the mid 90s.....

Started out with 12v Milwaukee which was fine....gifted it to a family member when their tools were lost in a fire...

Been doing the 18v makita thing ever since....

Both work for me.

Old thread I know.


I took your word for it True, picked up a M18 Fuel rattle-gun and it is an excellent piece of kit. My brother has an old V18 drill and circular saw he said I can have, so I ordered an adapter so that I can use the M18 batteries on the old V18 tools.

Next on the list is a Stihl motorised auger and a Stihl pole-saw, I should have most bases covered right about there.


These are my opinions, feel free to disagree.

DeWalt is what you want in my opinion.


Someday someone may kill you with your own gun, but they should have to beat you to death with it because it is empty.

Dad wanted a rechargeable drill for the same. He's got an ancient Makita rechargeable that's decades old and he kept trying to get it to work again, not sure why, it's like 8 volts.

So I went to Lowes and got him a Craftsman kit - drill, battery and charger. I think it was on sale for 80 bucks or so. It's about a year old now and works great for his needs.

He was happy.

'course that new Craftsman didn't stop him from buying an ancient DeWalt at a garage sale for $3.00. He likes to go to garage sales late on Sunday and put a bunch of crap in a box and then offer 'em like $5.00. Apparently he's got it figured.

I have a 10 or 11 year old Bosch that keeps on trucking. The batteries are both about shot, but I wouldn’t hesitate to buy the same unit again.

Bought a Harbor Freight, Bauer impact driver last year to build a small deck. It wasn’t happy by the end of it. Still runs, but is noticeably louder and feels like it wants to come apart.
It was cheap and did the job though.

You buy a cheap one and get fugged twice.1 st time when you buy it and help China fug us all and 2nd time when the pos craps out on you when you need it the worst. Take some of the money you saved when I gave you that original Remington sling for nothing and buy a 20v Dewalt brushless on sale. Mb

Agreed.

I bought the Milwaukee kit that comes with the weedeater, edger, hedge trimmer, and pole saw attachment and holy schit does it impress.

I also bought their brushless impact driver and 3/8" drill and they kick ass.

So the guy wants something for 3 - 4 hours a year and "relatively cheap" and look at all the suggestions he gets. This is better than the guy whose question about a small, cheap, occasional-use, homeowner chainsaw starts an epic Campfire Husqvarna vs Stihl dick-measuring contest.

Just go to Harbor Freight.

I made the same observation pages ago. If a guy were to ask about a light pickup for commuting and garden hauling, he'll get recommendations for Kenworth versus Peterbilt and which sleeper cab is the best. Never fails.
