Determine whether you are in the market for a tool kit or if you need only one single tool. Often you may find kits available that include the most frequently used power tools like a drill, impact driver, and reciprocating saw. This is obviously a more expensive investment that buying a drill alone, but if you need these other power tools, its certainly more economical to buy them in a kit than to buy them all separately. This is also helpful if you prefer cordless tools - buying multiple cordless tools from the same manufacturer means you can usually swap a battery between different and multiple tools.
Before undergoing any do it yourself project, make sure you invest all of your options and read up on the project. If the project is relatively easy, you may want to buy a set of power tools to complete it yourself.
Just what qualities are you looking for in a specific power tool? Do not get caught up in all the features that one may give. You might end up paying a great deal more for one which includes features you do not expect to ever use. Take a close look at those features though because you will possibly find a couple you are able to really employ that you didn't think of. That could certainly make a specific model more appealing to you.
Founded in 1915 in Japan, the Makita Corporation has also staked its reputation on cordless, battery-powered power tools - most notably, the hand-held drill, which Makita introduced in 1978. Nine years later, the company had a full arsenal of cordless, professional-grade power tools for contractors. Today, Makita manufactures over 350 different power tools, both portable and stationary, and the pronounced teal color emblazoned on all of their tools is often mimicked by others trying to capitalize on Makita's reliable name.
Finally, even though the tile cement (mortar) I had chosen was a good one and guaranteed curing during cold weather, it still took longer to cure because of the temperature, which made the job even longer to complete. Although this allowed for laying more tiles, between the weather problems, lighting issues etc., I found myself running out of time necessary for the jog at hand.
