Craftsman let us try out their 12V lithium-ion Hammerhead Auto Hammer. If you’ve ever pounded a nail into oblivion, you know that a magical tool that did it for you would be a god-send. Well, the auto-hammer is the first of its kind in the marketplace and aims to change the way consumers hammer nails. The hammerhead is hose- and cord-free and uses the power of a 12 Volt Lithium-ion battery to pound nails up to 3.5-in. in length with the press of a trigger. Coming in at just under 30 ounces, the Hammerhead Auto Hammer is a bit heavier than your typical 20-22 ounce framing hammer, but it didn’t feel unwieldy during use.
The Craftsman C3 19.2V Compact Lithium-Ion Drill/Driver 11910 is the most recent addition to the already extensive line of the C3 tool system. The latest technology was used to build this compact and ergonomic drill that is 30% lighter and has features normally associated with a full size drill. Standard with a 1/2â€ keyless chuck, two speed gear box, 24 position adjustable torque clutch and a built in LED work light in the handle.
The Craftsman 4.8 Volt Pistol Screwdriver is a handyman’s (or handywoman’s) “go-to” tool. This rechargeable pistol grip screwdriver is perfect for those around the house jobs for which the big boy tools are simply too darn cumbersome. We tested out this pistol grip screwdriver in a variety of jobs and found it to be long lasting and perfect for most basic projects, provided you didn’t expect much torque or require the finesse of a variable speed drill.
