06 Dec Drill, Driver, Two Batteries Kit Under $200
A new 24-Volt brushless drill and impact driver set from Greenworks comes with a 3-year tool and battery warranty, a charger, belt clips, screwdriver bits, and two 1.5 Amp hour batteries that have a USB port built in to charge your phone or tablet on the jobsite. And the list price on the Greenworks website (item 1307502AZ) is $189.99. A brushless motor provides more torque, quieter operation and longer life. The drill/driver has a 1/2″ keyless ratcheting chuck, a 2-speed gearbox and an 18-position clutch. The impact driver has a 1/4″ hex quick-release coupler, 3-speed electronic variable speed control, runs at 1450 RPM and delivers 2,666 inch-pounds of torque. It also has a built-in LED light for working in poorly lit spaces. Greenworks products are made in China, while the design, engineering and product management services are located in North America. The corporate head office is in North Carolina.
(Ed Note: The WoodEzine woodshop has been using a 40-Volt Greenworks snowblower for a couple of years, and just added a chainsaw that uses the same battery. We’ve been pleased. We have no connection whatsoever with the company.)
