    Comments about Tradesman 18V Cordless Lithium-Ion 3-Tool Combo Kit:

    Was looking for new batteries to replace tired old ni-cads for my 18v ensemble. Found this kit where I got 2 lithium's and a charger for less than the cost of 2 batteries plus... a bonus drill, impact driver, and a flashlight.

      Comments about Tradesman 18V Cordless Lithium-Ion 3-Tool Combo Kit:

      Both the drill and the driver are very powerful. The problem is speed and torque control.
      The drill starts fast and stops immediately. This causes the bit to come loose. It has fallen out repeatedly. The driver has very poor speed control. I have broken two #10 wood screws and two Hitachi bits because it went to full power.
      I am going to have to adjust my technique to these tools, since they behave like no others I have owned. That should not be necessary.

      Solid drill set

            Comments about Tradesman 18V Cordless Lithium-Ion 3-Tool Combo Kit:

            These drills work perfectly well. They have lots of power, and a good solid feel. My set even makes a quiet musical tweeting as they engage. I have only a couple of complaints. The batteries slide out backwards, and the clip that holds them in place can be a little tough. I assume both of these could be considered pros - the battery isn't about to fall out forwards as you use it if it wasn't so securely held, but on my last set of Bosch 18vs the batteries were much smoother in and out and easier to handle. Just seemed a bit higher quality in that department. Not much of a complaint really.
            The thing that does bother me is with the chuck on the drill. The drill gives out a ton of power, and the solid metal chuck is nice and feels higher quality than my Boschs. However, there is no good liminal zone when releasing the trigger: it goes straight from Full Power! to Off! with a snap unless you really focus on letting the trigger off slowly. This puts torque on the heave metal chuck as it slams to a stop, which can actually loosen the drill's grip on the bit you are using and cause it to fall straight out of the teeth. I got better at preventing this with a little bit of practice - tightening the chuck as hard as you can helps, as does passing the trigger through the release point more slowly - but it's still annoying and not something I've dealt with on any other brand drill.
            All in all, it's not really a deal breaker. The impact driver, my preferred weapon of choice, is totally unaffected by this issue, and otherwise they are a solid set of drills. Add in the fact that I got these for basically the price of a 12v set, it's still a deal I'd recommend to a friend. My brother, who insists on the highest quality tool possible, I'd recommend to spring for the next step up, but if you're that guy, you already know it, and probably own a set of Milwaukees.
