6 reasons to upgrade to contractor-grade cordless tools

Whether you’re an experienced carpenter or just starting out, making the switch to contractor-grade cordless tools is a big choice to make. You’ve likely gotten familiar with the dependability and life that comes with running a corded tool for years and the thought of switching has you concerned. At The Tool Cabin, we hear these concerns and we have six reasons why making the switch is actually an upgrade.


Tool brands like Makita and Paslode are trusted by contractors for a reason. They make the best tools. Cordless tools made by these companies will continue to provide the same level of strength, performance, and durability that you expect. Keep in mind that these brands are not willing to sacrifice the performance that you expect by producing an inferior product. So, durability is not something that you need to worry about if you’re buying from a trusted tool manufacturer, to begin with.


When you buy tools that are made by the most trusted brands like Milwaukee and Buckingham, you know that they’re going to back their products. You can buy with peace of mind knowing that your purchase is covered by a warranty. Furthermore, our team can help you get any necessary service completed that falls under the warranty of your cordless tools.


Construction sites went from manual tools that didn’t have any cords to being cluttered with cords. This poses a major safety hazard to all workers on-site with risks of tripping or even cutting through electrical wires and getting electrocuted. Eliminate the mess of cords at your worksite by going with contractor-grade cordless tools. You can easily clean up the clutter and create a safer work environment for everyone on your team.


Properly winding and unwinding cords and hoses takes a lot of time. This is time away from work at the start and end of each day. Additionally, cords take up valuable space in a storage shed or tool trailer. Eliminate the need to store cords and replace those slots with battery chargers. Your storage areas will be much more neat and orderly.


In addition to making it much more convenient to store your tools, you can transport them to and from your job site much easier. Cordless power tools will fit much easier on a belt, a rack, or in storage drawers without the hassle of dealing with the cords that come with them.

Battery Life

There’s nothing worse than when the batteries in your tools die. This is a reasonable concern given the important role that your tools play in your everyday work. However, contractor-grade cordless tools come with lithium-ion batteries that are rated to last as long as you need them to. For example, the DEWALT 20V MAX XR COMPACT Reciprocating Saw provides more than 2.5 times more run time on average than previous models. This should give you plenty of time to get the work done that you need. Batteries and motors are more efficient, which makes for longer-lasting and more durable cordless tools.
