Every month we bring you the chart-topping drills so you, the drill buyer, can know what’s hot! In addition, we are starting to post our thoughts on the best-selling drills to help you navigate your drill purchase!
1. Black & Decker BDCDMT120 20-volt Matrix Drill
If you’re looking for a real versatile tool system, look no further than this 20v Matrix drill by Black & Decker. At around $60, it’s overpriced for a 20v drill. But, if you’re pressed for storage space, the tool system functionality comes into play. Attachments for saws, sanders, lights, routers, and even a trim saw are available and cheaper than owning all the tools.
The downside? When your battery dies, all your tools are out for the count. And when your battery hits the end of it’s useable life in a few years, you may or may not be able to get a replacement battery. But, it’s not a bad tool if the tool system idea rocks your boat, and this drill is the least expensive Matrix system drill.
The Black & Decker DR260B is a great basic drill like the Genesis above.
I’ve got one and I like it as a light duty, around the house drill. The nice thing about it being corded is the fact that it doesn’t need recharged. The frustrating thing about it being corded is…well…you’re stuck to the wall!
To be honest, if I had to purchase again, I’d go with the Genesis as an around-the-home drill. It sometimes stinks to have to find a plug and extension cord just to drill 1 simple hole, so keep that in mind. 🙂 [divider_flat]
This project kit from Black & Decker features their LDX120 , as well as a tool kit filled with hand tools and a quality tool bag. It even includes a number of drill bits, spade bits and some small hole saws.
This starter kit is on sale for a killer price this season, so grab them while they last – a great Christmas gift!
A much-tougher big brother to the Matrix drill, the MAX by Black & Decker is a great addition to your toolbox if you need a drill that’s…just a drill!Check out our full review here.
This drill normally sits at #1 or #2 on Amazon, but due to Holiday and Black Friday sales on other drills, it’s fallen this month. I’m sure it’ll be back soon!
Reviews on Amazon state that it’s a really great, high quality corded drill. At an affordable $50, it’s also a reasonable price! And the best benefit? No battery to die leaving you in a bind!
Want to sink 4″ deck screws with ease? Drill through steel more easily? Than this is the drill for you.
An upgraded, more powerful version of the 112 corded drill above, the DeWalt DWD115K is a real-deal, industrial grade drill that means business. Buy it now on Amazon!
Are you looking for a good, all around toolkit that includes a good drill? This $55 tool kit from Black & Decker contains all the basics you need in order to get things done around the house. It includes a number of hand tools and drill bits and a nice bag to store it all in. Note, this kit is smaller and has less tools than the LDX120 Kit above.
It’s definitely a basic home-grade kit, but it’s a good one at that! A great buy for a new homeowner![divider_flat]
Coming up at #10 on our list this month is Black & Decker’s DR560 drill, and boy is it a serious drill! Reviewers noted that you must grip the drill properly if you’re going to open it up all the way because you may damage your wrist.
Yes, it is a Black & Decker, so it’s value priced and made of plastic. It’s not the must durable unit ever, but it’s got a TON of power, and if you take care of it, this corded drill will last you a long time and make you a lot of great projects!
