Benefits of Going Cordless

Are you sick of having to plan your construction project around a power source? Tired of tripping over extension cords or pulling them out of the outlet when you take just a step too far? You may want to consider upgrading to cordless power tools.

Why Cordless?

There are a number of perks to using cordless power tools. For example:

  • Convenience- Cordless tools allow you to be more mobile. Outdoor projects are a breeze without having to find an outdoor outlet, extension cords or a set up a generator. If you’re moving from job site to job site, they’re easy to pack up and go without the hassle of wrapping a cord.
  • Efficiency- Long battery life allows you to work for hours without interruption. When it does finally die, you can seamlessly switch the battery out with a fresh, charged one.
  • Safety: No more tripping on cords. No more patching up frayed cords with electrical tape.

Is Cordless right for you?

Before making the switch, it’s important to consider whether a cordless tool is right for the type of project(s) you are working on. For most every day projects around the house, a cordless tool will get the job done. Cordless tools are also a good choice if you’re going to be working in tight areas or on a ladder.

If the tool you need uses a lot of power, such as miter saws or metal cutoff saws, or if you’re going to be working with very tough material such as concrete or stainless steel, chances are you will need a corded tool.

While there is not a huge difference in cost between the corded and cordless tools themselves, you need to also factor in purchasing at least two batteries and a charger. This means that cordless tools cost more upfront, but the added convenience is worth the price.
