Porter Cable has never let me down
Let me preface this review with this: On just about anything and everything I buy, I can normally find a pretty even amount of opinions both for and against said item. From my limited experience and in today’s market of mediocrity to average quality stuff (for above average to outrageous prices) luck of the draw seems to play the biggest role in whether or not I get a good average priced item or a Monday or Friday produced item………….
Great Drill, affordable price
For the money, this is a great combo set. I purchased this drill to use at work. I have been using this drill to start a gas liquid transfer pump we have at my job. I have a bad back, and this engine is a pain to start. So pulling on the recoil starter is not good for me. On setting 1, it has sufficient torque but not enough speed for my particular needs. Speed 2, seems just fast enough to turn the motor over and get it running. This drill is a life saver, or back saver, that quite frankly I couldn’t live without at this point in my life, and for my needs works perfectly. I have an expensive Dewalt drill and impact. Cost me over $300 just for the drill and $120 for the impact driver. Now I will say that you do get what you pay for. There are many obvious build qualities in the Dewalt that surpass this Porter Cable. For instance, the chuck on my Dewalt is metal, this Porter Cable is plastic. The actual size of the drills too, this Porter Cable is much smaller than my black and yellow one. I’m am by no means saying that makes it a bad tool, just not a heavy duty tool. I didn’t want to ruin my good drill on the job, so that’s why I bought this one. However, for a regular person or homeowner, I think this is a great drill. I did take off 1 star because of the batteries. A 1.3 amp hour battery is not sufficient and seems cheaply made. With both batteries, thats 2.6 amp hours of work time, my Dewalt is two 3.0 amp hours(which I have 4 of because I bought my drill and impact separately) . But again the price reflects that. I am not using the carry bag that came with it, I prefer hard cases, especially in my work truck. I’m using a Dewalt power tool case and Stanley power inverter I purchased as well here on Amazon. Overall though, I’m extremely satisfied with the build and price of this drill and, I am considering purchasing a second one for home as a backup.
All you need!
I have purchased and used just about every make of drill driver made. Driving 5 inch bolts into three 2 by 10s burned out by trusty Dewalt. Serves me right as they do recommend using an impact driver! Never used or needed one before and did not plan to spend a ton of money, so this looked good. The impact driver is fine, just what I needed. But the drill driver (which I thought of as a bonus) is mind boggling. Using it to drill 1/2 inch holes in the previously mentioned triple 2×10 was a unique experience. So much power it felt like it was pulling into the wood! Really incredible, I wanted to drill more. lol. Nice feel, good balance, seems light to me compared to others, charges fast and comes with a bag to keep them together. Also the price is right!
Awesome tools…Used them every day for work for a year ..Never had a. problem… plus you can leave batteries in the charger You can’t over charge them..Plus You don’t have to drain batteries..Can charge at any point….AWESOME….
i like this drill set because its my fist drill set
i like this drill set because its my fist drill set. the sad parts is that the batteries do not last long for what i do . i put a sanding bit on it and the drill lasted me a bout 20 -30 mins maybe more but that is what it felt like . and that is for both batteries. i am probably going to buy the bigger battery later but if you are no going to do long drilling sessions then this will work fine but if you are going to use this for work that you should buy the bigger battery or spend a little more for a better brand.
Started out great
When I bought it the batteries were great. Slowly they started fading faster then they used too. They aren’t very old either
This is an excellent drill set
This is an excellent drill set. I purchased it to replace my previous 18V drill. I have been very happy with the power, battery life, and adjustability of both the drill and impact drive. The dual Lithium ion batteries are invaluable when working on projects.
The Standard Drill is Strictly for Less Demanding Home Tasks
This is a pretty good set for the money. But I must admit, the standard drill is strictly for around the house when you need to screw something in or maybe drill a small hole. This didn’t cut it at all when I was trying to drill an inch hole through studs at our new construction home. It just made that ratcheting sound that is basically a drill’s way of saying, “Sorry, dude, you’re asking too much of me.” Pfft. It may be heavy and impressive looking, but I felt like I was working with a Barbie drill. It may as well be pink. I may be a woman, but I don’t want wimpy power tools. Give me something with some torque.
Great combo pack!
So far these have held up well. I have used both of these on several projects and had no issues. I really like the impact for working on the my vehicles. I used it to change the oil pump in my 1500 Ram. No loud compressor running and it beats turning a ratchet. Oh yea and the price was AWESOME!
I would normally gravitate towards something with a battery dock not cable, and preferably one that could charge two batteries at a time, however this was such a great deal I didn’t mind.
