INDUSTRIES THAT COMMONLY USE CORDLESS POWER TOOLS
Companies in a wide range of industries rely on cordless power tools for their day-to-day work tasks. Some of the more common cordless power tool uses include:
- Plumbing: Plumbers often work in tight spaces and may not always have access to an electrical outlet. Some of the cordless power tools that can help plumbers get the job done are drills, oscillating multi-tools that enable cutting while working at awkward angles, circular saws for cutting pipes as well as transfer pumps for moving water from one place to another.
- HVAC: HVAC technicians can use numerous cordless power tools when they're performing installations, conducting routine maintenance, troubleshooting and handling repair tasks. Examples include right angle and hammer drills, reciprocating saws for cutting, dust extractors for keeping work areas neat and clean and angle wrenches for tightening and loosening nuts and bolts.
- Construction: Construction projects frequently occur in outdoor environments, which can result in limited or no access to electricity. Construction operations can take advantage of the flexibility of cordless power tools such as drills, dust extractors, rotary hammers, saws and palm nailers when they're working at remote jobsites. Using cordless tools can also reduce dependency on portable generators.
- Landscaping: Landscapers work exclusively outdoors, which can make cordless power tools a necessity. Grass shears are one tool that can make the job faster and easier for landscaping professionals. In addition, blowers can facilitate a quick, efficient cleanup at the end of the workday.
- General contracting: Because their job entails working on a variety of projects, general contractors need versatile power tools that can do many things. Kits that contain several tools often provide the most cost-effective and flexible cordless power tool solution for general contracting professionals. Packages are available that include tools such as cordless drills, cordless impact drivers and a wide range of accessories.
- Electrical work: Electricians often must work with the power turned off as a safety precaution. Cordless power tools enable them to work without access to an electrical power source. Hammer drills, for instance, allow electricians to drill through walls and other hard materials when they're extending wires and cables. Impact drivers make it easier to drive large fasteners such as long screws. They're also lighter and easier to use than standard drills and contain no chucks.
- DIY: There are many non-commercial, non-industrial cordless power tool applications. If you're a do-it-yourselfer, you can use cordless power tools for various tasks in and around the home. Some of the most common cordless power tools for household use include drills, impact drivers, impact wrenches, circular saws and angle grinders. You won't have to run extension cords through the house or into the yard, and you'll significantly reduce the risk of electric shock.

How to Choose the Right Cordless Power Tool to Fit Your Needs
Finding the right cordless power tool for the job involves decisions based on application, purchasing details, specifications and brands. Think about the factors below during your search.
Your goals play a major role in your buying decisions. Consider how youplan to use your cordless power tool, weighing factors such as:
- Light vs. heavy-duty: You need to match your tool's power to the intensity of the job you have in mind. A less powerful tool can manage hardware installation and drilling into light materials. However, you will need a heavy-duty option for intensive construction and repairs.
- General use vs. specialty projects: Do you plan on getting a well-rounded tool for general use, or do you need to complete a specialty job? Some tools fit a variety of projects, while others have very specific purposes. For example, while a power drill suits multiple jobs, an impact drill has the main purpose of fastening.
- Outdoor vs. indoor: The setting of your project also influences your cordless power tool choice. You might want features like a belt hook or a light depending on where you plan to work.
Once you understand your tool's application, you can move onto more specific details.
Purchasing Details and Specifications
Your power tool's features and specifications will also become important during use. Pay attention to the product's:
- Power level: A tool's voltage and product type determine the situations where you can use it. While a general use tool with low voltage fits periodic use, you may need a heavier-duty option for intense jobs.
- Cost:Depending on the frequency and intensity of use, you might want to invest more or less into your cordless tool.
- Accessories: Our tools come as a kit or as a bare tool only. Kits typically include batteries and other accessories, while bare tools come with the tool only. If you already have a compatible battery, you could save money by buying a bare tool instead of a kit.
- Battery: Cordless tools can use lithium-ion batteries or nickel-cadmium batteries. Nickel-cadmium batteries have a more affordable cost, and lithium-ion batteries have higher performance.
- Warranty: A cordless power tool can have a warranty ranging from one year to life. If you plan to invest a decent amount in your next power tool, you may want to look for a manufacturer that offers a longer warranty.
After considering these details, you can begin to compare brands for their features and price.
