Power tools are equipment that is proven very useful for when you need more power or efficiency than with manual tools or labor. Because of their features and versatility, they are commonly used at home, on construction sites and across different industries.

Cordless or corded power tools?

Cordless power tools or battery power tools, are a great choice for when you need optimal flexibility. You can easily use them in hard to reach spots as you are not dependent on a power outlet. Instead you are dependent on a battery, making the device normally not as powerful as the corded versions.
