4.0 out of 5 stars Nice compact set, January 30, 2011
By 
This review is from: Makita LCT208W 12-Volt max Lithium-Ion Cordless 2-Piece Combo Kit (Tools & Home Improvement)
I did nothing but make fun of a buddy who bought the Milwaukee 12v compact drill/driver after he already had a complete 18v Dewalt set. That all changed when he left it at my house one day. I soon picked up my own 12v set by Makita with the circular saw to compliment my 18V LXT set. The size is perfect for having in your kitchen closet or somewhere close if you're frequently into little projects like I am. It takes up very little room when tucked in the case and leaves room for extra tools too.

drill/driver- I find myself reaching for this more often than a regular screwdriver. The small size lets you be very precise and the light is an absolute bonus. I had no problems screwing 3" screws into 2x4's. It has plenty of torque and great battery life.

circular saw- blade spins with more torque than sheer rpm's than I expected. My major use for this saw was cutting tons of hardwood lath frome a home rehab into shorter pieces for my wood-burner. My other use is drywall. I can cut and notch areas with ease and be more precise than I can with a rotary-type tool. Also worked well with tile backer board. The small size and light weight come in handy. Only thing I'd like is more rpm's but I can't really complain as it does what it's supposed to. Ripping sheeting while on a roof?- of course not. Being a good all-around saw that is easy to handle and replaces a hand saw?- exactly!
