For many people, power tools are a way of life. A moment of browsing #powertools on Instagram is enough to witness the collections people display-and many actually use!-day in and day out. For others, power tools are a borderline dangerous mystery best left to the professionals. At Helton Tool and Home, we feel that everyone should have some knowledge and understanding of power tools, because one should not put off or hire out a task that may be easy enough to accomplish on one's own (with the help of a little power).
Knowing how much power is needed for the task is important when buying Power Tools and Equipment. There's no need to go all out for a 20V when a 12V drill will provide enough power and runtime to complete the most arduous task it may ever be expected to accomplish. For most casual power tool users, a 12V tool is plenty for quick drilling, driving, and fastening without issuing so much power the user risks over-doing it and causing damage.
