Less is More (CRAFTSMAN V20 Cordless Drill Combo Kit)

The world is evolving its technological aspect with every passing day. Due to the Worldwide Pandemic, everyone is working from home and that requires people to have handy and savvy gadgets. Since most of the people now opt for DIY projects, the demand for easy-to-use tools has increased. One out of every 7 households create their own furniture, farm vegetables in their own backyards and build a tree house for their children by themselves. In order to help all those underrated artists, CRAFSTMAN has introduced their Cordless Drill Combo Kit. It is light, compact, durable and budget friendly.

The CRAFTSMAN V20 Cordless Drill Combo Kit can be used for multiple DIY projects. You may follow this link if you are looking for ideas to start your own DIY project. This is a brushless drill in their new V20 series. The brushless technology modification upgrade is essential for such types of tools as such motors provide an approximated 60% more runtime and enhanced durability. The durability and power of this drill can be seen in this video where this individual managed to drill through thirty-inch of thick ice successfully. 

This Craftsman V20 Cordless Drill Combo Kit is a commendable  innovation in the construction/repair/craftsmanship industries. In such industries, a machine that can provide more power and durability along with a longer battery life, is considered to be a vital asset. These efficient factors and functions of this equipment would lead to higher productivity rates in the market. This is the kind of product that can be used semi-professionally, as well as for home-based projects and fixtures. The presence of a Lithium battery is also a plus point.

Apart from the fact that the V20 Cordless Drill Combo Kit comes with every supporting sub-tool possible. A carry bag only proves that its portability can be relied upon. 

The Craftsman V20 Cordless Drill Combo Kit was introduced last year. It has a 20-Volt Max Variable Speed Brushless Cordless Hammer Drill which was tested by a handful of people who also published their reviews about this Drill. In a test where this machine was compared with the DeWalt (DCD996B) 20-Volt Max XR Lithium-Ion Cordless ½ – Inch Premium Brushless Hammer Drill, the V20 Drill displayed impressive performance due to its speed and power. The V20 Drill managed to remain less heated at the bottom as compared to the DeWalt Max XR Drill which was hotter than the V20 by 10 Degrees.

The Craftsman V20 Cordless Drill Combo 8-PC Tool Kit has a bunch of handy, lightweight and cordless equipment which includes the following items:

  • A ½ – Inch Drill Driver – The motor of this drill looks larger compared to other drills of the same genre from other companies. However, it is a well-balanced tool. The drill comes with a two-speed drive and a twenty-three-speed clutch system as well as a drill lock. The drill has a rubberised grip with ridges and ribs to prevent it from slipping through your hand. The cover at the back of the motor is also rubberised for the same reason. 
  • A ¼ – Inch Quick Connect Impact Driver – Its design is similar to the ½ Inch Drill. The best thing about both the driver and the drill is the fact that they have small and reversible switches which add to their ease-of-use factor. 
  • A Random Orbit Sander – It has an eight-hole design with a standard velcro pad along with a detachable dust bag. It is compact and great for portability. 
  • A Jig Saw – The design is very basic. It has two cutting modes (Direct and Oscillating). It has an all-steel base plate. Well-balanced and also has a lock feature for safety. 
  • An Oscillating Tool – This tool is used for trim-cuts for renovation/demolition work. It has a pistol grip and has no metal housing and it is not meant for running for hours on end. This tool is quieter than other oscillators. 
  • A 6.5 Inch Circular Saw – This item has all the basic and necessary safety features, rubberised grip, sturdy metal base-plate. It has an arbour lock for whenever the blade needs to be changed. It has a small quick-disconnect depth-of-cut-adjustment lever for the base-plate with built-in positive stops at a 90-degree angle. It also does not speed up as soon as it is turned on which is good for handling and momentum building. 
  • Reciprocating Saw – It is a well-balanced tool like the rest of the tools. Quick-removal technology for the blades. Similar to the Jig Saw, it has a lock feature too. An overall smooth operator.
  • Flashlight – It is lightweight. It has a rubberised grip with an adjustable head to 90 degree angles along with a quick on/off feature. 
  • Two 2.0 AH Lithium Ion Batteries – They have their own built-in charge indicators. They are easy to install and remove due to the presence of a thumb latch at the front-top of the battery. This thumb latch would prevent overapplication of pressure to remove or install the battery into the equipment.
  • Fast Charger – It is a single battery charger for 12 and 20 Volt batteries. It has a hidden feature at the bottom which are mounting holes.

This Craftsman V20 kit comes with 2 spacious but basic bags so that the equipment can be carried around. Though they may not seem durable enough, but they might last for a reasonable amount of time.
