Cordless Power Tool Reviews for Pros While anyone can read our cordless power tool reviews, we write them with professional tradesmen in mind. That means we test some tools in-house with our expert panel of tool testers. Others, we send out on the jobsite and put them into the hands of Pros for evaluation. This lets us really get a feel for how a tool performs against the expectations of real-world applications. Also, it ensures we don’t miss out on a particular tool application we may not have thought of.
