Professionals and tool experts know that investing in professional grade power tools is a wise career move. It’s what separates the hobbyists from the professionals and these tools are truly on another level. Should a worker on a construction site use the same tools as someone who’s working on a do-it-yourself project in their garage? Obviously, both are worthy endeavors, but they require very different approaches and different tools. So if you’re a professional, what are the benefits of investing in professional power grade tools?

They are Made from Better Materials

A less expensive, consumer-level power drill, like the one in the DCD796 from Dewalt, may have a plastic chuck and gears while the DCD996, from the DCK695P2 Combo Kit, will have metal chuck and gears. It’s details like these that increase the longevity of the tool, so when you invest in higher-grade tools you are investing in longer life and many other premium features. Glass fiber reinforced plastic, which is often found in higher grade power tools, allows for both strength and flexibility.

They Last Longer

The longevity of your tools greatly influences your earning potential, simple as that. Tools that stand the test of time mean you will need to replace your tools less, thereby saving you money in the long run. Differences like a non-potted switch vs a potted one on a drill, for example, can have a direct impact on how long it will serve you. This wonderful feature stops dust and small particles from entering the delicate electronics of the drill. Professional grade power tools are designed for repeated use, something consumer-level tools just cannot offer.

You Get Your Work Done Faster

Having to charge your tools can be an inconvenience that costs you time and money. As professionals know, nothing can be more disruptive than a tool that needs to be recharged halfway through a job. With professional grade power tools, workers are able to use the tools for longer periods of time because they often have larger batteries. Higher quality tools also mean more options, like speed and versatility. You will be better prepared for the unexpected challenges that often arise on a project, making you more prepared and helping you stay on schedules.

The Final Word

A worker’s tools define him or her, and though the cost can often be an obstacle, we want you to have the best. That’s why we offer a financing program - because we believe that cost shouldn’t stand between a worker and professional-level tools.
