Best Cordless Drills 2016
Over the years, I solved the problem, “which is the best drill strings?” Different ways. Last year, I went a little too enthusiastic, too many proposals. Most of these proposals very little is valid now as they are after, but I want to pare it down a little this year.
This roundup reflects my opinion, based on all the exercises I have used and tested over the years. Every year I experiment more and more models, and while many people may be recommended for different user preferences, needs and desires, I want to restrict this year’s recommendations the best of the best.
Some models had just landed on a test bench of me, and I will review these recommendations in a few months in the changes whatever the case. Maybe then I’ll be posting a complete roundup.

BEST 18V CORDLESS DRILL: DEWALT DCD991 3-SPEED BRUSHLESS
The Dewalt 20V Max DCD991 Brushless 3 speed drill is one of the last models I’ve tested in time for this round of proposals, and it quickly grew on me.
The previous model, DCD990, was discussed last year when a special mention. So what’s changed since then? I went on a factory tour Dewalt USA, and went home with a new DCD995 (version jackhammer) that I “built” myself.
I did not touch the hammer drill function DCD995, but I find myself using more and more boring that, in place of any other drilling unless I tried to test different models. Maybe I’ve developed an attachment to drill it because it has my name on it, or maybe it is because I have misplaced my DDS181 Bosch and was too busy to look for it.
Finally, I got used to DCD995 and quite like it.
Then, the DCD991 and DCD996 come out, advanced second generation brushless 20V Max drill Dewalt’s 3 speed.
The DCD991 is more powerful than its predecessor, and new LED worklight function has grown on me.
I’m also quite fond of 2nd generation M18 Brushless Fuel Milwaukee’s drill, and maybe if I had not used my DCD995 Dewalt as a go to for a few months, the Milwaukee had fuel could take top honors in the 4th consecutive year.
On paper, the Milwaukee M18 fuel drilling, model 2703, is the most powerful cordless drill on the market. But I have yet to come across a task that template DCD991 I can not handle.
And that is that worklight LED, can be used independently of the drill. It most certainly was helpful, despite my initial doubts.
With brushless DCD991 Dewalt drill, you get a lot of energy, drilling and driving fast, and great ergonomics.
If I were to have multiple “Best 18V drill wire” type this year, the latest fuel and Milwaukee’s M18 M18 One-Key drill – with customizable settings and control torque – will have both promoted runner is. I wish I could convey how difficult it is to determine the cordless drill’s best overall year.
It takes a lot of travel between Milwaukee M18 Dewalt DCD991 and fuel in 2703 before I finally went with Dewalt.
Both are great models, but if it’s one or the other, I prefer a little more Dewalt.
I have found that the new, DCD991P2, is the same as the previous, lower even in some places, and it also comes with a 5.0Ah battery pack instead of 4.0. Often I would recommend looking into the previous model to save a few bucks, but in this case it’s almost a no-brainer to go with the latest and greatest.
BEST 18V COMPACT CORDLESS DRILL: DEWALT DCD791 BRUSHLESS
DCD791 brushless 20V Max compact drill / driver Dewalt is the successor to that DCD790 first-class 18V Compact Drill I picked last year.
The new model stronger, slightly more compact, and high-grade drill like it has a high worklight LED can operate independently.
If you need a compact drill with great capacity, runtime specifically, and great ergonomics, this is the one to get. DCD791D2 kit is the same price as for the DCD790D2 ($ 199). Perhaps the price will decline DCD790 at some point, but until then there is no reason not to go with the latest models and greatest.
If I need is a cordless drill, Dewalt DCD991 I would go with. If I knew I had a wired drill available to back up the demand for higher energy happens, I’ll go with this DCD791.
The move is just perfect.
MIWAUKEE M18 RED (Best Cordless Drills 2016)
Although I say I want to decrease this year the best wireless drilling recommendations, it would be unfair to not mention M18 compact brushless drill Milwaukee’s, 2701. I like this model very good, and it was runner-up last year as well.
It is very likely, and while not any less expensive than Dewalt DCD791, which is the next best option.
MILWAUKEE M18 COMPACT BRUSHLESS DRILL
The above are Milwaukee M18 compact brushless hammer drill, 2702, which I thought would be my 18V-class compact hammer drill of choice.
BEST 12V CORDLESS DRILL: BOSCH PS32 BRUSHLESS
What’s so good about 12V-class exercises? They are compact, lightweight, and most capable light-duty and medium duty.
Without a doubt, I love Milwaukee’s M12 line than all the others. They have the choice of compact cordless tools wide, great specs, prices pretty, relaxed, and thoughtful features.
When it comes down to 12V cordless drill, Milwaukee I like a lot. But I simply like Bosch even better.
Drilling of the Bosch PS32 brushless is very compact and offers incredible runtime. This is not the most powerful 12V drill-class, but it can still do a lot. And when more power is needed, that’s what drills are for 18V.
The PS32 brushless a bit more expensive compared to PS31, it is still a good model, although I like the PS32 handle ergonomics. The difference is small, but noticeable.
12V-class drilling is sometimes economical option to set 18V, but not always. Here are some of the $ 100 Wireless drill / driver recommendation, but remember that most of the better deals and prices only go around the winter holiday shopping season Father’s Day.
EDITOR’S CHOICE CORDLESS DRILL: METABO BS18 QUICK
Cordless drill is my first Black & Decker model Firestorm 12V NiCd, with a drill chuck it removed to expose a driver 1/4 “hex. Metabo BS18 Quick 18V drill / driver has a same thing. Maybe that’s why I like it so much, or maybe it’s compact size and affordable.
It’s easy to get hung up on specs. When I upgraded Black & Decker drill in my past, in part because I needed more energy, and partly because I needed to upgrade to a “chuck 1/2.
These days, when you see a “drill chuck 18V 3/8 of a cord, which is usually a sign that there is a budget model with the technical specifications referred to.
Nothing dialed down on fast Metabo BS18 18V drill / driver is. It provides 425-lbs in torque, which is pretty good for a compact 18V models. And the kit comes with (2) 2.0Ah Li-ion battery.
While testing and use later I did not remove the chuck the fast BS18 very often, there is a built-in 1/4 “hex driver is not useful. It’s faster to swap the chuck and off than to exchange the drill bit and the owner, and more convenient too.
Some users find it convenient to use 2 drills, or a drill and a screwdriver wireless, to avoid frequent changes little. The Metabo Quick BS18 can in some cases replace 2 with 1 engine.
I find it somewhat incredible that Metabo is selling this kit for $ 149, but I’m not complaining. This is one of the professional wiring kit cheap best available drilling.
