While most manufacturers opted for specialising in versatile models, Porter Cable decided to take a different approach and produce the best specialised cordless drills, especially for work in heavy industry and breaking through tough materials.

At first, we were sceptical about the 20V lithium ion battery, but it doesn’t affect the slick, light-weight frame at all – the entire drill stands at just 2.4 pounds (1.08 kgs)! Both our testers and interviewees lauded the comfortable grip and the reduction in weight. This is of the utmost importance when you’re working long hours on a complex project and every minute matters. A 0-2.900 RPM is sure helpful and the increase in efficiency is very much evident from the start.

We were quite amazed by the size of the Porter Cable cordless drill kit when we ordered it for testing. The impeccable impact driver is a dream come true for every contractor, bringing you every characteristic that is searched for in a premier cordless drill.
