To shop with confidence and know you are not being taken for a ride by unscrupulous salespeople. Arming yourself with options, features, and brands is a bare minimum for successfully buying new power tools comfortably. Corded vs Cordless Power tools come in two main varieties. The older types of power tools are corded and must be plugged in to get electricity. However, just because a power tool has a cord doesn’t mean it is old. Some tool users prefer corded tools because they can get an unlimited supply of high-amp electricity to deliver the power needed for greater performance. The more amps of electricity that can get to the tool, the more power it will have. This is especially important for some types of saws and when drilling through especially hard surfaces. It was once a matter of size rather than the electricity source that mattered most. Modern technology has changed that because new smaller motors have been invented that can operate at extremely high power yet fit into a handheld tool. In those days, handheld power tools were limited to 5 or 6 amps. Today, many handheld power tools operate at 11 or 12 amps. Of course, you are limited to where such tools can be used and how far they can reach, but many contractors used a system of extension cords and generators to make sure they can get anywhere on the job site with their preferred power tools. The next type of electricity used in power tools is from batteries. The most popular power tools are cordless, battery-operated tools. When considering a battery-operated power tool, the power it will have is measured by how many volts it can get from the battery. The first cordless power tools used 9.6 volts as a maximum. Through the years, voltage and durability of cordless power tools has increased. Batteries have also become smaller and more efficient. Common cordless power tools are now 12 to 14.4 volts. Industrial cordless tools can operate with 36 volts or more. It was once unthinkable to operate many types of power saws on batteries. Today, even a miter saw can run on a battery-operated system. Important Features Every year new features are being added on to common power tools. Some of these features improve safety and the efficiency of the tools. Other features improve comfort and handling. Some features are just eye candy. One type of feature that is growing in popularity is the quick-change feature. It allows drill bits or saw blades to be changed rapidly. This is often a useful feature to consider. Another feature available on some tools is a laser guidance control. This helps improve accuracy, but if you are coordinated and have good eyesight, it is not really necessary. When looking at features, a personal decision must be made as to whether the feature is worth it to you for the added expense it carries. Knowing these few simple facts about the power tool market will improve any power tool shopping experience. This is just the beginning.
