Editor's Review: A Look into Cordless Combo Kits

review date: December 1, 2005

Panasonic's cordless combo kit features endurance champions but below average controls and adjustments. Both the hammer drill and the saw won their respective endurance tests. The drill has a great grip. The light-duty circular saw's adjustment knobs are too small, the depth-adjustment lever interfered with the shoe, and the trigger-switch lock was stiff and often prevented the tool from being turned on. Blade-changing was marginal because the blade guard interfered with the new blade as it was installed. The 65-minute charging system is good.
