Great Cordless Drill Combo Kit for Finish Work

Recently the guys on my carpentry crew purchased a new “mini” cordless drill combo to use for finish work. Using a standard 18-volt cordless drill like the DeWalt 18-Volt Drill that I use can be very difficult in tight spaces because of the large battery pack and overall size of the drill. This is especially true when you’re installing kitchen cabinets and you’re trying to screw the rails together between boxes.

Small But Powerful Cordless Drill

These two cordless drills may appear small in size but the fact is they are really powerfu. Powered by stick type lithium-ion 10.8 volt battery packs these drills are powerful enough to drive wood screws into hard maple cabinetry, oak cabinets and even truss lock screws into paralam beams!
