Professional Tool Reviews for Pros

Manufacturer: Porter-Cable

Our Porter-Cable tool reviews mostly deal with the newer tools brought to market in the past decade. Porter-Cable tools were well-known as Pro-focused back in the day. Now, however, they take a more value-approach to consumers. Quite honestly, they have a branding issue as consumers seek to understand where they fit against other popular manufacturers. Our most recent Porter-Cable tool reviews include the Porter-Cable 20V Max 18-gauge brad nailer and the Porter-Cable 20V Max 16-gauge finish nailer. We also looked at the Porter-Cable 20V Max brushless drill & impact driver. While we liked these tools, there is a lot of competition in the marketplace. Porter-Cable Tool Reviews with Hands-on Evaluations The Porter-Cable tool reviews below cover just about every new and existing tool made by the company. Porter-Cable is a brand with lots of tools and a decent category of products. From recip saws and circ saws to drills, drivers, flashlights, and vacuums, there’s a lot to choose from.
