Hitachi, Bosch or Makita? It is littered with værktøjmærker on the Danish hardware stores, and it is usually either a jungle or a religion, when the professional craftsmen or experienced do-it-yourself-men need to choose the best screwdriver.
But who are doing really the best 18 volt screwdriver with slagbore function? Extra Magazine, the Craftsman has set out to find the answer among six of the most popular screwdrivers in the Danish market.
Behind the test is the carpenters Thomas Reffelt and Anders Reffelt from Reffelt Build and elektrikerne Jacob Hansbøl and Jan Rosenlind from Elstyrken that all of fi-re on a daily basis spending several hours in the company of the beloved and sometimes hated tool.
The four craftsmen have assessed the screwdrivers in six categories such as price and power and given them points in each of the categories with six for the sovereign and for the miserable. The test was a close affair at the top, where the De-Walts DCD 785 race with victory right in front of Bosch and Makita.
Light and strong
- It is incredibly light compared to how strong it is. And so is the lovely small and easy to handle. However, I am a little in doubt if the quality can keep.
The little plastic-like compared to the big DeWalt that is made more in the iron. But there is three years warranty on both, so they should be durable, says Jan Rosenlind from Elstyrken.
At Reffelt Barley had the two carpenters, also the Dewalt vindermodel with brand promotion, but here it had to see itself beaten on the finish line of another machine.
- It was absolutely right on the point between the Makita and the Dewalt 785. But we go up in power. It is the most important category for us, and there was the Makita the best. DeWalt was in the stand, having it drilled large holes in the tree. Looking solely at forces, so was the downtown milwaukee model is actually the best. It was just too much and was quite heavy, says Thomas Reffelt.
Noise and sluggish buttons
During the test is the six machines have been subjected to everything from having to drill into the concrete ceiling with 6 millimeter drill to screw 10 millimeter French screws in 100 millimeters of timber at the time to separate the junk from the stuff. And when it was close at the top, then showed one of the models that have hard to follow with the rest of the field.
- Hitachien have on paper it all. But it is a skrammelmaskine, which is packed in a nice cover. It vibrates and makes a noise much, lacks power, sluggish buttons and a cumbersome battery replacement. In addition, the price is second highest. It is not at all together, says Thomas Reffelt.
the Prices of skruemaskinerne are manufacturers ' recommended retail prices, and all are exclusive of vat.
