Helpful battery powered tools:
Note: batteries and chargers are often more expensive than the tool, therefore choose one brand of product for all tools, enabling the use of one kind of battery/charger for all. Most of the tools are sold separately from the batteries. Would suggest 20 volt rather than 18 volt.
