I have better tools and a welder. Your more than welcome to drive all the way to NY and use them. But you can't take them with you.

Kawasaki heavy duty 2500 rpm drill, it has a power cord because i HATE battery powered drills, so far I love it. and it will come in very very handy this summer.

Nice drill. I kind of need a 3/8 drill. I picked up a bit 1/2 drill last year, but you really need 2 hands to use it, very high torque. But to big to get in to smaller areas.

Makita had a sale a while back on 12V 1/4 hex drive impact and drill driver so I got one. Works really nice,powerful and gets in tight spots. I haven't had to recharge the Lithium Ion batterys yet.

you havent used a proper tool then. i have the makita 10.8v set of impact and drill and its got the power of the old 18v stuff and is lighter than those puny electric screwdrivers and the battery lasts months sometimes. ive honestly forgot were i left the charger because its been that long. and the batteries are unaffected by cold i leave my tools outside in the truck. i also have the big 18v set, it will do 4 times the work of the 18v dewalts i had. for the dewalt i had 5or 6 batteries and a few chargers any time i was doing a project i would have a constant bunch of batteries on at all times just so i could keep working now i have two and charge them at lunch and can work a normal day.

the one we have is a dewalt its not big and its old i dont like dealing with batteries on anything, personal preference.


my buddy jeff has a powerful makita drill and impact his impact was 550$ his wife got it for him for forgetting his birthday they make some pretty badass tools and those lithium batteries are insane
