Looking for a new cordless tool set...
 
Please fill out the poll and let me know why you choose what you did.
Thank You

I would like to thank those of you who have replied and i am happy to see that the results point toward the Dewalt tool set, which was the one i was leaning toward. I would still appreciate if more people would chime in, as i have only had 3 people reply so far.

Thank You

Surveys have increased at my house from $125.00 to $275.00 since the Fall of 2008. That's cash; I do not take checks because I'm too dam lazy to to do the leg work of attempting to cash a hot check.

I shop Sears. No one will steal them if they read Crapsman.

I would not take the gift of any Dewalt tool.
Tired of switches, brushes failing, battery's failing and costing way to much.

surveys are soo last century, I'm having flashbacks of getting stopped in the mall like in the 80s to take surveys.

Hitachi is what I have. I believe this disqualifies me from the survey. I picked them strictly on the drill specs and impact driver specs. I didn't consider cordless circ saws and the like as those would be much less use for me.

That said, from your options, I would pick Rigid and view them as disposable and not get too stressed if they broke/did not work as expected after a few years.

And they have a lifetime warranty if your the original owner and fill out the card.
What you going to find by doing a survey is just a list of what people already own and feel comfortable with.
Check out Amazon and see what the people say that own the tools your considering.

Surveys are not allowed. Nor are links directing members off site.

If you wish to create a poll thread about which set to get, that is fine.

So if i call it a poll and not a survey it will be fine. (Technically google docs, which i used to create it calls it a form)...

Not trying to be rude, i dont know how to create a poll though so can i just leave this? People have just been responding on the thread anyway.

It has to be a poll using our site. Not some other site. As in you can't use Google to make it.

Could you inform me how exactly to do that?

beenthere 12-23-2013 05:04 PM

I already removed the link, so the thread is fine.
