Helpful power tool kits for homeowners

Like word processors for writers, battery powered tools have become indispensable for general home repairs because they are so versatile.

Cordless tools can be used to drill, drive screws, power hole saws or to remove or tighten fasteners like nuts and bolts using socket attachments. Kits like these are handy and will get used all the time. So you’ll want to get durable products of good quality.

Multi-tool kits are better deals

The reason you want to buy a kit is because it is way cheaper than buying the individual tools and batteries piecemeal. The manufacturers all make kits that can be had with various mixes of components including saws, drills, sanders, grinders etc. Occasionally a maker will have a special sale on packages that include new tool offerings or tools they are planning to discontinue. These are especially good ways to get low cost batteries.

Makita drill and impact driver kitI recommend you start with a kit that has at least two primary tools like a battery powered drill kit with an impact driver, two extra batteries and a charger. Get a kit that includes big 5.0 amperage/hour batteries possible. Beware of cheaper, “teaser” sets that have low amp/hour batteries

All kits come with handy but heavily-branded carrying boxes or bags that hold the tools, extra batteries and charger. Buy on-line for the very best deals and use my links below for reliable vendors.


When assembling a useful homeowner tool set you will want a battery powered drill kit to be a part of it. I like the DeWalt or Makita sets best, but Milwaukee, and Bosch make acceptable kits. Hitachi also makes similar tools but I was only able to find them with 3.0 amp/hour batteries. Any of these will be a good addition to your tool set.
