Overview

Editor's Review: A Look into Cordless Combo Kits

review date: December 1, 2005

The tools in Porter-Cable's cordless combo kit scored above average in every test. Besides its performance, the hammer drill's strength is its controls and adjustments. The innovative grip features an insert system to accommodate hands of various sizes, and the large clutch is easy to adjust. Battery attachment could be better, though. The saw is good. The metal blade guard stood up to rough work, the large adjustment levers were easy to move, and the dust-exhaust nozzle was a terrific feature even without a vacuum attached. The one-hour charger offered a good diagnostic capability. This kit also includes a reciprocating saw and a light.
