If you’ve ever cut masonry on a job site, then you know that working with subpar tools can turn a difficult job and into a complete headache. Make your life easier with a pro-grade tool like this 14-inch power cutter from Makita.
Fill up your tool belts and boxes with these incredible tools for pros across all industries.
Cordless power tools revolutionized the job site, but heavy-duty tools like rotary hammers need more power to deliver the kind of performance that a professional expects. This Bosch model’s 36V battery pack means you can free yourself from the cord without sacrificing the torque and impact required to get the job done.
There are plenty of reciprocating saws on the market, but Milwaukee’s Sawzall line still sets the bar for quality and reliability. Don’t confuse this model with its more consumer-oriented 12-amp little brother. The Super Sawzall has twice the stroke length, a heftier build that can handle more abuse, and an adjustable orbit on the cut.
Not all of the power tools on Amazon are designed for job site use. The Shop Fox line provides quality shop equipment at reasonable prices. While this bench-mounted belt and disk sander can be taken to a job site, it’s more at home in your shop, where it will quickly become a favorite for material removal and finish sanding.
A favorite of door and window installers, as well as deck crews, this portable planer is the perfect tool to keep tucked in your truck. It can make quick work out of material that’s out of square or oversized.
Sometimes it’s just easier to buy everything in one go! If that’s your situation, check out this Makita nine-piece combo kit. These are solid power tools to get you up and running quickly, or to serve as backups, in case of emergency.
Lastly, don’t forget to consider how you’re going to power all these corded tools, and charge all these batteries when many job sites don’t have power! Keep an eye open for one, like this model from Powermate, with a wheeled support carriage to make things easy on your back as well as your budget.
