Cordless Power Tools

Aside from a carpenter’s pencil, every toolbox has a battery powered cordless drill. Our cordless power tool lineup includes lighter, more powerful tools featuring brushless motors for longer wear and advanced onboard electronics for maximum power, torque and user safety. Couple that with the latest in lithium ion batteries for more run time and you’ve got something your dad didn’t have, power to spare.

SKILSAW 7-1/4 inch magnesium worm drive saw cutting plywood

Corded Power Tools

There is nothing like a constant source of power when you’re ripping a 2x8 and you are halfway through your cut. Corded power tools deliver endless performance and for some tasks may be the only way to go. One of our all time toolbox favorites is the very versatile circular saw and its cousin the worm drive SKILSAW.

40V max XGT Brushless Cordless 8-1/2 inch Dual Bevel Sliding Compound Miter Saw

Miter Saws

A compound miter or sliding miter saw is one of the best investments you can make for your workshop or jobsite. Miter saws, aka chop saws, offer a high level of precision that allows you to make accurate crosscuts as well as angle and bevel cuts for a variety of applications including molding, trim and crown.

Miter saws are available in both corded and cordless models. Cordless miter saws run on a high volt battery platform, delivering the power of a cord with the convenience and freedom to move from room to room quickly without trailing a cord or untangling that long extension.

Portable Table Saws

Portable table saws keep getting better and safer, and you can roll some of them out of your pickup and onto the jobsite. Table saws are extremely useful and can provide a long, straight cut with precision and accuracy. Our selection of saws are compact and portable, with enough power to rip lumber along the grain, cut dadoes and miters accurately, and cut panels or shelves for casework.
