I’m the head of product development department for ToolAnt, and I used to work in HomeDepot, Lowe’s and Grainger as a product engineer. Based on 15 years Tool industrial experience, I want to share with you some of my personal opinion on tools.
From the 1st industrial revolution in 1840s, the great products & tool brands are being developed like stars in the sky throughout history. Until today, those brands are still contributing to tool revolution and creating continuous records. We should cherish those hundred years of enterprises, the centenary and upstart brands, not for a certain one, but for every one of my tool brands.
No matter how great the product is, it will disappear in the river of history if no one keep on revolution and creation!
After compare with performance, cost and functionality, I’m trying to provide the best one tool upon comprehensive evaluation which under $500.
Reason: As the DIY grade PT brand of TTI company, RYOBI holds super high market share in US. Upon the RYOBI battery platform, 1.5 Ah and 18 v charger can provide enough output in drill and drive work, also provide the quick charger efficiency.
Reason: As one of the leading brand from Japan, MAKITA has many loyal user in global marketplaces. This 14 inch metal cutter is powered by 2 x 18v lithium batteries. Give a try, it will be better than any other steel cutter you’ve used.
Model#: MSA 200 C-BQ
Reason: 100 year brand created by Adrew Steele in German, who previously focused on gasoline-powered chain saw company. Heavy-duty torque and high cutting efficiency.
Model#: GTA 26
Reason: Light duty to 3.1 lbs, assembled with 4″ saw blade with 10.8v motor, noiseless which is perfect for home garden maintenance.
Reason: WORX is one of the best power gardening tool brand from China, although the main market trend is now dominated by lithium, the WG521 is still the most efficient blower with over 100 ft. cable.
Model#: FMM 350QSL
Reason: FEIN is the global industrial level PT brand, who created the 1st oscillating tool in 1967. 3.6A MultiMaster is ideal for cutting, grinding and polishing etc. More stable and efficiency than most others.
Reason: As one of the biggest PT brand, BOSCH is keeping their high quality products. This model has special design named ‘X-lock’ to provide the quick assembly experience.
Reason: As one of the biggest PT brand, Dewalt provide this tool with elongated handle optimizes reach for rip cutting OSB and plywood.
Model#: Pwrcore RH170402
Reason: SKIL is the hundred-year US PT brand, who created the 1st circular saw. After investigation, the tool structure design is more applicable for construction work. This tool uses SDS Puls drill bits and can be applied on drill and chisel work with stable performance.
Reason: HITACHI is the Japanese PT brand, their PT business was sold to KKR and change their brand name to “Metabo” in US, HITACHI is still being used in other marketplaces. “Made In Japen” always showed their professional and precise manufactuering, and provide high quality cylinder for shotting efficiency up to 3 nails/sec.
Reason: As the leading brand of rotary tool in US, Dremel almost cover all functional tools in this area and represent the highest quality grade. The Dremel 8220 has the strength of its motor facilitates maximum performance at all speed levels. A slim ergonomic body provides a 360-degree grip zone for control in any position.
None of these are from Toolant now 🙁
