Overview

Editor's Review: A Look into Cordless Combo Kits

review date: December 1, 2005

Craftsman has combined a fine drill with a poor saw in its cordless combo kit. The drill is a light tool with great balance and easily accessible controls. Unique features include integral plumb and level vials, and an LED in the base that illuminates the work area. The saw may have a laser-cutting guide, but there's not much else going for it. Cutting endurance was the lowest of the 11 cordless saws we tested. The simple task of blade replacement was a chore because the arbor lock frequently slipped. The one-hour charger is good, although hot battery packs must cool before being placed in the unit. This kit also includes a reciprocating saw and a light.
