    Re: Cordless Tools

    I like the 18 volt myself.. had a big Red 18 hammer/drill that took some abuse and still works great.. my wife bought be a Ridgid kit, 18 volt as well, and I've been using that for work for some time now.. I am very happy with how it works..

      Dewalt 18V for everything.
      1. sawzall
      2. hammerdrill
      3. impact driver
      4. circular saw
      5. right angle drill
      6. small vacuum
      7. self leveling rotary laser level on tripod
      8. caulking guns
      9. grinder
      10. drywall cut out tool
      11. jig saw
      However, I do have a Hitachi 9.6V Impact Driver for light duty undersink, inside cabinet, faucet repairs, etc. where weight is an issue.

      The 18V comes out when I need to drive really long or big screws.

              All of our stuff is 18 volt. We have a pretty good slug of 18 volt tools, including circular saw, recip saw, hammer drill and impact drivers. They work very well. It might be that 24 volt would be better, but it should be quite some time before we need new tools - so for now, our favorite is 18 volt.
