Professional Tool Reviews for Pros


Cordless Drill Reviews & Impact Drivers

We spent hundreds of man-hours on cordless drill reviews and impact drivers with hands-on objective testing. We also rated the most powerful cordless drills through head-to-head comparative testing. All 12V, 18V (20V), and 36V models go through our testing rig, and we rank them for their respective categories. When Pros want to upgrade their systems it’s often difficult to know where to go. While you may have your favorite “color” or brand, we seek to help you understand the competition. We understand the tendency for Pros to choose favorites. Our cordless drill reviews and our impact driver reviews seek to avoid bias by using standardized testing methods. Without an objective testing source, you may find yourself purchasing a tool that can’t get the job done. Pros Can Trust Our Cordless Drill Reviews We not only test power, we look at run-time, vibration, and ergonomics. The best cordless drill for one may not be the same for another. Our drill and driver reviews take that into account, testing various torque and speed scenarios. Our individual cordless drill reviews are thorough, and break down the build quality, features, feel, and performance of each tool.
