Runner Up: Makita XT505 – 5 Pc. Combo Kit

Makita XT505 18V LXT® Lithium-Ion Cordless 5-Pc. Combo Kit (3.0Ah)
Makita is another company that comes out on top of many “best-of” tool articles like this one. They are pioneers in the cordless tool industry and always seem to outdo themselves.
What makes this combo kit remarkable is the power the LXT battery system and Gear Ratio setups generate. If power is your thing, then Makita must be your go-to company.  This particular combo kit, however, does not include brushless motors as the DeWalt combo kit does.


  • Variable 2-Speed ½” hammer drill (600 rpm and 1900 rpm)
  • Variable speed ¼” impact driver (2900 rpm and 3500 rpm)
  • Reciprocating Saw (2800 strokes per minute)
  • 2 LXT – 18 Volt Lithium-Ion Batteries with Charger
  • 6-½” circular saw
  • 4-position LED flashlight
  • Contractor Carry Bag
  • Each of these tools operates at breakneck speeds and generates more power than you would have thought cordless tools could generate
  • It comes with all of the most needed tools
  • The flashlight battery lasts an entire workday (7.5 hours) on just one charge
  • Lightweight enough to carry with you anywhere
  • Makita also makes the best tool bags around – and this comes with one of those fabulous bags
  • It comes with two 18-volt lithium-ion batteries and a charger
  • 3 Year manufacturers warranty on the batteries and tools
  • 30-day money-back guarantee
  • 18 Volt is a Shorter battery life than competitors.
  • An LED Lamp would be better for battery life.
  • Non-Brushless Motor Tools
The innovative nature of this company is apparent the moment you focus on its tools. And it becomes even more evident once you begin using them. It is why the first thing anybody notices when using this tool is the speed and power that it can generate.

Our Take

There is nothing quite like having speed and power at your fingertips – and Makita provides just that. It’s what makes video games so fun.  The first thing anybody notices when using these tools is the speed and battery power they generate.
This Makita power tool set is chock full of innovation, and it’s a wonder they packed this much power into their tools. My only advice is to find a larger volt battery if you are using these heavily. One extra hour of use can make all the difference when on the job.

Runner Up – Makita Combo Kit



Premium Brand: Milwaukee 4-Piece M18 Combo Kit

Milwaukee 2696-24 M18 Cordless Compact Combo Tool Kit If you know tools, then you probably are familiar with Milwaukee tools. They’ve been around since the end of the first world war when Henry Ford commissioned help from the company’s founder. And ever since that day, they’ve been making the grade “A” tools. So why is it our sleeper “Premium” pick?
Mostly because Makita and Dewalt take up so much oxygen in the cordless tool world, but greatness cannot be suppressed. Or is it repressed?  Anyway – My main reason for including the Milwaukee Combo Kit as our “Sleeper Pick” is the cost and quality they deliver into this 4-Piece Combo Tool Set.
The set includes the most used cordless tools you will probably need. At the same time, the Dewalt is a six pc. Set, but the Milwaukee Kit costs $120 less. Also, many contractors and homeowners believe this is the best tool company in the world – so there’s that as well.

Milwaukee M18 (18V) Cordless Tool System (Video)


Cordless Multi-Tool Kit Includes:

  • All Non-Brushless Motor Tools
  • One each: M18 cordless drill/driver with 550-inch-pound torque and up to 1700 RPM speed.
  • One:  M18 reciprocating saw with the Milwaukee patented gear-protecting clutch and counterbalance mechanism
  • One: M18 ¼” impact gun with 1400 inch-pounds of torque
  • M18 LED work light with foldaway hooks
  • Two 18V lithium-ion batteries with battery charger
  • The contractor Tool bag is included
  • 18-volt RED LITHIUM extended power batteries – last for several hours and have indicators letting you know when it is nearly time to recharge them
  • It has an all-metal chuck on the ½” hammer drill
  • The flashlight illuminates your workspace and eliminates shadows
  • Compact tools that let you work in tight spaces with ease
  • 3-year battery warranty and a 5-year warranty on the tools themselves
  • Non-Brushless Motors
  • No circular saw included
  • An LED Lamp would be better for battery life.

Our Take

All in all, this is a quality kit that gets most jobs done with ease. Of course, if you need a circular saw, you may want to skip this set. At the very least, you’ll have to buy one separately. But where this kit shines is in its sheer power.
Also, is this a premium tool kit without the brushless motor option?  If you use power tools often or for your work, we recommend upgrading to a Milwaukee brushless motor combo tool kit.
Plus, Milwaukee tools provide a better warranty than any other company I can think of. If you want peace of mind that your devices are covered for the next decade, then you must go with Milwaukee.

Best Value: 6-Piece Porter Cable – PCCK61726 – 20V System

  • Includes Soft side Kit Bag 
  • Great set for DIY homeowners but maybe a bit light duty for pros
  • Kit Doesn’t have the Brushless motors of more expensive brands
Porter Cable delivers everything you need in a power tool combo set and does it for incredible value. I own two sets of 6-Pc Porter Cable Multi-Tools for my remote locations and have used both sets for over eight years without any equipment failure.  
That’s a fantastic result, considering the Entry-level price they charge for this Power Tool Package.

Ryobi:  8-Piece  “18 Volt” Cordless Multi-Tool Kit

Ryobi P883 One+ 18V Lithium Ion Cordless Contractor’s Kit (8 Pieces: 1 x P704 Worklight, 1 x P515 Reciprocating Saw, 1 x Circular Saw, 1 x P271 Drill / Driver, 2 x Batteries, 1 x Charger, 1 x Bag)
  • Kit includes (2) 18V Lithium-Ion Compact 1.3 Ah Slide Type batteries for less weight in a more compact size than traditional batteries.
  • 18V Lithium-Ion Impact Driver that weighs only 3.1 lbs yet still delivers 1,280 in/lbs of driving torque for heavier applications.
  • Reciprocating Saw
  • Circular Saw
  • 18V Lithium-Ion LED Flashlight for high visibility in a free-standing design for convenience
  • A quick battery charger, Phillips #2 Driver bit, and Carrying bag
  • Covered by Ryobi’s 3-Year tool warranty and 90-day exchange warranty.

Our Take

Ryobi Tools are Known for being an Affordable cordless tool alternative to the more expensive and durable power tool brands.  That being said, if You’re looking for a one-of-everything combo set, this is a safe and affordable option. 
If you already own other Ryobi tools like Lawn tools or a Chainsaw, this power tool set is a great choice, as the battery system will be compatible with the Power Tool Kit.
I place a little more value on the Porter-Cable combo, which includes a Hammer Drill and Oscillating Tool and does so at the cost of around $50 less.

What Brand of Cordless Combo Tools Do Contractors Use?

DeWalt is the #1 brand of cordless (battery-powered) tools worldwide.  Besides making 100s of different devices, DeWalt also manufactures one of the best cordless lawn tool brands.

The Battery systems for DeWalt power tools and Yard Tools are fully interchangeable.


Cordless power tool brands have significantly improved their Battery Powered platform and the Type of Tools Offered in their Multi PowerTool Kits.
For most homeowners, we recommend choosing a battery tool kit that includes a Power Drill, Hammer Drill, Reciprocating Saw, Circular Saw, and LED Flashlight.
Most Cordless Power Tool Kits include all 5 of the above tools. However, Porter Cable offers six tools, including an Oscillating Tool – Whereas Makita only offers a 4-tool Set.
All of the kits in our review, as a must-have, include lithium-ion batteries and a quick-charge battery charger. Like us, most people no longer want to be attached to electrical cords or pneumatic air tools on the job.
It is time to embrace freedom, join the cordless revolution, and “cut the cord.”
