Editor's Review: A Look into Cordless Combo Kits

review date: December 1, 2005

Bosch provides a good saw with real dust collection and a solid hammer drill in its cordless combo kit. The saw's housing has two great features: a flip-up port for attaching a Bosch vacuum hose and a superb depth-adjustment knob and scale that's the easiest to read of the ones tested. Unfortunately, the saw's rip fence wiggled during our test, and the arbor lock was difficult to access. The hammer drill is no-frills, but it performed well. The quick 30-minute dual-port charger is capable of trickle-charging hot batteries until they cool enough to permit fast-charging. This kit also includes a reciprocating saw and a light.
