Professional Tool Reviews for Pros


Tool Accessory Reviews

Our power tool accessory reviews include products such as impact-rated bits, driver bits, saw blades, batteries & chargers, tool storage, and more. If you care about power tools, then the accessories are what make or break your daily use. Choose the right power tool accessories, and your tools tend to last longer, cut or drive faster, and increase in productivity. Our power tool accessory reviews compare the latest products across various categories. We eliminate outside variables to really hone in on the power tool accessory performance. That typically means we test accessories by placing them on identical tools. We use weights and testing rigs when possible to ensure cut and/or torque consistency. We do everything in our power to eliminate as much bias as possible. In the end, using the right accessories makes you more productive. Install a poorly-made bit or blade in a tool and it performs less efficiently. Use the right accessory, and your day will go more quickly.
