Our Recommendation on the DC821KA
This tool is a middle of the range tool but will definitely not look out of place on a construction where heavy duty tools are required and used daily. The metal transmission mechanisms mean that the tool will have the reliability that any construction worker looks for in a product. It is the best budget tool in the 1/2 inch connector range. The price is a snip at $250 and should definitely be considered when looking for a high performing 1/2 inch.
Another 1/2 inch connector cordless electric tool is the Milwaukee 2663-22 which packs almost double the torque of the DeWalt. However, this model lacks in features and has a hefty price tag. The Bosch 22612 is another 1/2 inch cordless electric tool that is the best cordless for light use.
