Saw an ad for these tools and wondered if anyone has been using them. I don’t see any reviews online. I’m using mostly DeWalt 20v and wouldn’t want to change everything out. But I do need a new driver and drill for the cabin and thought this might be a chance to try something different.

Why do you want to try something different?

Having multiple brands of battery powered tools is something I try to avoid. I doubt they will be substantially better or worse than what else is out there.

I have 2. It works for me.

I have DeWalt for drill/impact/18 brad.

For sander/extra impact/grinder/router/drywall saw I have ryobi.

The ryobi stuff, besides sander, is not used heavily. I like their battery charger that has 6 spots. Always one fully charged.

The DeWalt only came with one slot charger and no sander at the time. The sander was the reason for 2 systems, I just expanded on it.

I have the 18v ryobi and 12v milwaukee tools.

It works, but I can see giving up on one or the other eventually when it is time for expensive battery replacements.

The Grizzly 20 volt tools look a lot like Vollplus tools.

Never owned a Vollplus cordless tool so I can’t comment on their quality.

Interesting. If you need a stand alone rig for another site (cabin) then give it a shot. That said, not my cup of tea as my idea of a cordless tool is light and compact…otherwise I will get out the real deal.

I have been really happy since switching my main drill and driver to 12v.

Much lighter and plenty of power for everything I do.

Have your say...
