Drill, Driver, or Both?
Simply, drilling is making a hole, and driving is securing a screw or other fastener. Drill/Drivers do both jobs, which is convenient for projects like hanging a mirror, where you might drill a pilot hole then drive in a screw.
Corded vs. Cordless Drills
Cordless drills are convenient, compact, and easy to maneuver, so they can be used anywhere. You’ll appreciate cordless flexibility when you’re out in the yard repairing a gate or up on a ladder installing a light fixture. A lithium-powered cordless drill such as our 21V Drill/Driver will give you plenty of runtime for basic projects.
Corded drills require a power source and tether you to a cord, but they offer the benefit of unlimited runtime and increased power for large or complex projects you want to finish without recharging a battery. You can’t go wrong with a corded drill like this Mega Drill 21V Drill/Driver.
