Five "Must Have" Craftsman Power Tools For Homeowners

1. Craftsman Battery Powered Weed Wacker Leaf Blower Combo [Craftsman V20 Leaf Blower Battery Operated]


This one is actually two tools in one but the leaf blower is not necessarily on the "must have: list, however, it is a very nice addition to the collection. Craftsman Battery Powered Weed Wacker Leaf Blower Combo [Craftsman V20 Leaf Blower Battery Operated] Purchased at Lowes for $129 plus tax which came out to $140.00. Good unit but the battery life only lasts for 15 minutes on high at full charge. If you have two batteries you can get 30 minutes or so out of it. Great light weight unit just doesn't last as long as you'd expect. Many positives to this one though. Low cost, light weight, easy assembly, cheaper than gas, comes with edger line, etc.

2. Craftsman Electric Chainsaw Unboxing, Assembly and Use | 12.0 AMP | 16 Inch [Best Electric Chainsaw]


Craftsman Electric Chainsaw Unboxing, Assembly and Usage | 12.0 AMP | 16 Inch | NO GAS Required! Picked this hummer up from Lowe's for a decent price. I have been very impressed with the way this cuts. I've cut down now a number of decent size trees with this as well as bucked them all up into usable firewood rounds. I was skeptical at first using this electric chainsaw but after using it, I was very happy with my purchase. I have always traditionally been a Stihl chainsaw fan and even Husky and never dreamed I'd be bragging about how good an electric little chainsaw cuts but this thing gets after it. Great for cutting up tree limbs as well as limbing trees while they are on the ground. Also used this for trimming laurel hardwood (after using hedge trimmers for the leaves).

3. Craftsman Cordless Lithium Battery Powered 18Ga Brad Nailer [Best Cordless Brad Nailer]


This "must have" Craftsman Brand Cordless Lithium Battery Powered 18 Gauge Brad Nailer is one that you can't do without. This is a DIY'r and handyman's dream nailer. As great as it is, if I could have one or two wishes on this thing I would want it to come with an extra battery and have the battery last a little bit longer. My guess is that it takes quite a bit of battery power to operate and drains faster than I'd like especially when doing bigger jobs.

5.Craftsman 2000 Lumen LED Work Light | Water Resistant | Purchased at Lowe's [Craftsman LED]


This cheap Craftsman 2000 Lumen LED Work Light | Water Resistant | Lightweight | Purchased at Lowe's worked really well for working under the truck at night and it even helped during the day. This is a nice lightweight unit that's super portable. I was really happy with this for the price. Nice and bright. Used it as a backyard spotlight as well and it worked like a charm and lit up the area well.
