Whether you’re just starting on your DIY journey or looking to upgrade your current equipment — power tool combo sets offer the complete solution. Typically, they include the most utilized and useful of the DIY staples — drill, driver, circular saw — together with other essentials, such as reciprocating saws, work lights, and sanders. What’s more, these electric tool kits not only save you making numerous separate purchases — they also make power management effortless. As all the machines belong to one brand, you usually only have to charge one battery — often compatible across the whole range. When selecting the best power tool combo set, always ensure that the tools you need for your particular projects are included — contents often differ across brands.
Power tool combination kits can provide great value if you know you want a big tool kit and you don’t want to spend the time and money of building it up piece by piece. Plus, when you need multiple cordless power tools, it’s always best to stick with the same battery platform, and a combo kit gets you setup right out of the gate.
Choose a tool combo kit based on the tools, accessories, and power needed. Look for kits that include extra batteries and beware of kits that include tools that can’t be bought separately.
