10 Bestselling Drills – February 2014

Every month we bring you the chart-topping drills so that you can see the latest and greatest in drill value.  Like every month, some drills stay at the top, others fall, and we have some new contenders on the list near the bottom!  Let’s dive in!

1. Black & Decker BDCDMT120 20-volt Matrix Drill

If you’re looking for a real, versatile tool system, you’ll want to look no further than this drill by Black & Decker.

At around $60, it’s overpriced for a 20v drill.  But, the Matrix 20v drill is not just a drill!  Attachments for saws, sanders, worklights, routers, and even a trim saw are available for attachment on to the tools head.

When you buy 3-4 tools with the Matrix system, you’ll spend less than buying all of the tools individually, and that is a win if you are a occasional tool user.  Plus, it can save you a lot of space in your garage since you don’t have to store them all individually!

The Matrix system includes a long-lasting lithium ion battery and is perfect for homeowners and hobbyists!  Check out our full review right here.

2. Genesis GCD18BK 18v Cordless Drill/Driver Kit

The Genesis 18v drill is a really cool player on the market.

For starters, it’s really affordable with an under $40 price tag.  Sometimes the price falls just under $30, so if you see it there, you’ll want to grab one!

When you see the low price tag, you may be thinking “Is this thing really any good, or is it just a piece of junk?”

Users who review it say it is worth far more than the $40 price, and on Amazon it gets an overall review of over 4 stars, which is really good on the drill market.  This drill features a 3/8″ chuck, Ni-Cad battery, on board worklight and a host of other features!  Check out our full review here.

3. DEWALT DWD112 8.0 Amp 3/8-Inch VSR Pistol-Grip Drill with Keyless All-Metal Chuck

Third on our lineup this month is the DeWalt DWD112, a great semi-professional cordless drill from DeWalt. It features an all metal 3/8″ chuck, long cord, level and can speed up to 2,500 RPM.  It’s a very upgraded version of Black & Decker’s DR260B.

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!  Check out our full review here.

4. Black & Decker DR260B 3/8-Inch 5.2 Amp Drill/Driver

The Black & Decker DR260B is a great basic, corded drill.  It’s highly inexpensive and does the basics well.

I personally own one and I like it as a light duty, around the house drill.  It is cheap, but it is also inexpensive, if you know what I mean!  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.  I like my 260B, but sometimes it’s just a pain to drag out an extension cord just to make 1 hole.  Check out our full review here.

5. Bosch PS21-2A 12-Volt Max Lithium-Ion 2-Speed Pocket Driver

Reviewers really love this drill!  The Bosch PS21-2A is a bit of a crossover, featuring both the benefits of a great drill and the light weight of a cordless screwdriver.  It’s small, dependable and really, really powerful!

At the time of writing, just the Amazon reviews contained over 100 reviews with an average rating of 4.6 stars!

Though this bosch tool tool is technically only a screwdriver, many reviewers report it being able to drill, and the weight/size are benefits to fall in love with.

6. DEWALT DWD115K 8 Amp 3/8-Inch VSR Mid-Handle Grip Drill Kit with Keyless Chuck

It’s $60. It’s a corded drill. And reviewers claim it’s more powerful than their cordless drills.

Want to sink 4″ deck screws with ease? Drill through steel 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!

7. SKIL 2356-01 360 Quick-Select 4-Volt Max 1.5Ah Lithium-Ion Screwdriver

 Are you looking for the ultimate in light-duty cordless screwdrivers?

Want bit storage on hand?  USB charging so you can use your phone charger?  Powerful lithium ion battery?

Then look no further than the Skil 360 Quick Select Screwdriver!  This is a screwdriver that will last you for years and complete tons of small projects if you treat it well.  Like other screwdrivers, it features adjustable torque and comes with a great selection of bits.  It’ll always be charged up and can hold it’s charge for 18 months – so what are you waiting for?

8. Black & Decker DR560 1/2-Inch 7.0 Amp Drill/Driver

Here is a drill that means business!  Falling into the same category as the above listed DR260, and Dewalt 112/115 drills, the Black & Decker DR560 is a great, medium duty corded drill.

It excels in drilling through materials as light as wood and as hard as sheetmetal.  Don’t expect this $50 drill to do concrete well, however, as you’ll probably break it.  Like all Black & Decker tools, the DR560 is a great tool at a great price, and if you treat it well, you’ll get years of performance for a small price.  Buy now!

9.DeWalt DWD210G 10-Amp 1/2-Inch Pistol-Grip Drill

 Want a powerful, professional grade drill with that won’t let you down, even after hours of use?

Enter the DeWalt DWD210G.  This drill is powerful.  It’s really, really powerful, and includes with the power a advanced motor design that protects the drill from overload.

So basically, you can throw whatever you want at this drill, and it’ll either take it or stop to protect itself.  You really can’t lose, and this amazingly powerful corded drill is typically priced under $120!  You can’t beat that with a stick!

10.Hitachi DS18DSAL 18-Volt 1/2-Inch Drill/Driver

 This value-packed combo features an 18v drill, 18v flashlight and 2 lithium ion batteries.

Add to that Hitachi’s 10 year lithium ion tool warranty, and you can see why this drill sells so many units!  It’s  a great drill, it’s been around for a long time, and I sure hope Hitachi continues to make it in the future!  Check out our full review here!
