  • which cordless drill

    My current drill is a B & D 12vlt that typically doesn't have the torque or battery duration to get the job done - non-pro use. The Ridgid 12 vlt was recommended because it does have far more torque - but is the 12 vlt model Ridgid going to solve the problem mentioned above or do I have to move up to a 14vlt model? Thanks

    Deb,

    comparing B&D to ridgid is like comparing apples to Oranges. Ridgid is made for the contractor and will run laps around B&D. But so will Mil, ridgid, Bosch, Porter cable. (I.e. all pro brands). If the difference in money is not an issue.. I would go with the pro brand..it may be overkill but it will solve your problem. If money is an issue I would look at the homeowner brands, Ryobi, Skill or Black and Decker but at a higher voltage

      Dont want to sound like a know it all. I have had em all but for B&D. this year I purchased a Ridgid 18v treo Drill, saw & flash light. While I feel the fash light to be a gimmick with all Vendors I did feel that the drill & saw were the best I have EVER had and only wish I were 20 yrs old again just so I could have a lot more years to play with Ridgid hand tools. Just wish they would get in gear and bring out more.
