berry The only cordless tools I use are drill/drivers, everything else is corded. I have Bosch, Milwaukee and Panisonic. I like the Panisonic best but it was the spendiest too. I'd advise staying with a brand name and shop somewhere where you can, at a minimum, hold the tools if not use them. Go with what feels the best in your hand.

At some point the batteries will give up the ghost so if the tool is still good you'll want a replacement battery, that's easier with a name brand tool.

waynetruong thank you Theo, it sounds very sensible the way you use tools in your workshop, I will rethink mine.

JOAT One of my sons is in heating and air, the other was in refrigeration. Which meant a lot of the work is where no power is available, so they were left with no choice but cordless tools. Their tools of choice are by DeWalt, as well as their friends in the same lines of work.

Me, personally I don't see using cordless tools in my shop. I don't have to charge batteries, I don't have to buy replacement batteries, etc., etc. All I have to do is pick up a tool, plug it in, and ready to go. Plus the cord tools are less expensive.

But, your dime, your choice.

Ben in Cypress Texas Wayne -

The best advice would probably come from a working professional rather than a hobbist. A hobbist like me generally has one cordless tool brand while the pro has used multiple brands and has experience to base his or her advice upon.

If you are planning cordless tools look closely at the price of the batteries and charger. The battery cost varies widely and may well determine what brand you go with. As you are 'Down-Under' hopefully one of our many Australian members may have usefull current cost information.

It would be helpful if you would edit your personal information to let us know exactly where you are located in Australia.

Regards
Ben
