The 4 Best Cordless Drills of 2016

Whether you make your living in construction or you’re just handy around the house, you need high quality tools to do good work. From large, long term projects, to quick do-it-yourself fixes, these drills will get the job done. As 2016 comes to a close, here’s a look at some of the best cordless drills this year:

1. The 20-Volt Max XR Lithium-Ion 1/2 in. Cordless Brushless Compact Hammer

This drill will work on a number of different surfaces and materials, which makes it a great choice regardless of your intended use. Its DeWalt brushless motor enables it to run nearly 60 percent longer than similar drills with brushed motors. This drill is equipped with long lasting batteries, an ergonomic grip for tool and balance control, and an LED spotlight to enable longer work periods in dark spaces.

2. The 18 V ½ in. Cordless Compact Drill

This drill offers high quality at a lower price. At just over five pounds, this drill is light and easy to use but is still has the power to get the job done. It also offers dual speed options to give it more versatility. This means it will work for a variety of projects, small and large.

3. Makita Xph012 18v Lxt Lithium-ion Cordless 1/2-inch Hammer Driver-drill Kit

This is another great multi-purpose drill. Able to deliver up to 480 pounds of torque and weighing only four pounds, this drill is easy to carry but packs a lot of punch. This drill uses Star Protect Computer Controls, which prohibit it from overheating, overloading, and over-discharging. Its battery charges in less than 30 minutes, making it a great drill for on the go uses as well.

4. The Bosch DDB181-02 18-Volt Lithium-Ion 1/2-Inch Compact Tough Drill

This drill is a smaller model, meant for detailed projects and small spaces. It can handle up to 350 pounds of torque to give you durable fastenings. It can also work at up to 1300 RPM’s. This makes it an optimal choice for working efficiently to get the job done.
