Drill/Driver Vs. Impact Driver

Hercules answers the cordless conundrum

The cordless compact drill/driver is one of the most popular portable power tools of all time. The versatility of drilling and driving screws is indispensable for tackling countless projects. So what’s the difference between a drill/driver and impact driver—and why would you need one over the other?

A drill driver has a keyless chuck that accommodates a wide range of round and hex-shank drill and screw-driving bits—in addition to hole saws, rotary sanders, wire-wheel brushes and other accessories. Cordless drill/drivers also feature a slip clutch which enables the user to adjust the torque level for precise and consistent driving.

An impact driver looks similar to a drill/driver but instead of a keyless chuck, it features a collet that accepts hex-shanked driver bits. By utilizing bit rotation and concussive force, the impact driver is designed for one job—driving screws, which it does more efficiently than any other tool. An impact driver can generate two to three times the torque of a drill/driver. For example: an impact driver can drive long, large fasteners like fat lag screws that would stall the very best drill/driver.

If your focus is on tasks or projects that involve driving numerous screws or a lot of long or large screws—like building decks, installing tile backer board or laying down plywood subfloors—you should consider an impact driver. Otherwise, you’ll probably do great with a reliable drill/driver.

Professional-grade Hercules offers a drill/driver and impact driver:

Performance Under Pressure

Tackle the toughest cleaning jobs with a pressure washer!

A pressure washer is far more than a glorified hose. In fact, a pressure washer is a versatile tool that enables you to tackle numerous cleaning tasks quickly and easily. There are three key factors to consider when purchasing a pressure washer: pressure (PSI – pounds per square inch), waterflow (GPM – gallons per minute) and work (HP –  horsepower).

Pressure/PSI is especially important when considering applications. Light duty (1000-1900 PSI) is good for cleaning vehicles, boats, bricks, fences and decks. Medium duty (2000-2900 PSI) is ideal for cleaning your house, larger vehicles including airplanes and fleet trucks, pools, sidewalks, driveways, roofs, exhaust vents and garages. Heavy duty (3000-5000 PSI) is best for stripping paint, heavy grease stains, concrete restoration and clogged pipes.

Waterflow helps determine time of cleaning—the higher the GPM, the less time it will take for the dirt to be removed from the surface. The lower the GPM, the longer it will take for the same job.

Work facilitates the pressure and waterflow respectively. In general, the more horsepower an engine has, the better it can facilitate higher pressure and waterflow. More power translates into finishing the job quicker as well as a longer life expectancy of the unit.

Now that you’ve determined the types of jobs you’ll be performing, it’s time to go pressure washer shopping! Next stop—Harbor Freight Tools!

 

2500 PSI, 2.4 GPM, 4 HP (160cc) Pressure Washer EPA/CARB
This gas-powered pressure washer is designed for tough jobs with up to 2500 PSI, 2.4 GPM and 4 HP of cleaning power. Two heavy-duty pneumatic tires make transport and positioning easy while a long-reach (25 ft.) high pressure hose allows you to clean wide areas. Additional features include an EPA/CARB certified 160cc Predator engine with low oil sensor and recoil start for optimal performance, commercial grade axial pump, five quick-connect tips and chemical/detergent injector on the pump.

3100 PSI, 2.8 GPM, 6.5 HP (212cc) Pressure Washer CARB
When you want even more power, this pressure washer is the ticket! It generates up to 3100 PSI, 2.8 GPM and 6.5 HP. The pressure washer also features two heavy-duty pneumatic tires, 25-ft. pressure hose, commercial grade axial pump, five quick-connect tips, chemical/detergent injector on the pump—and CARB-certified 212cc Predator engine with low oil sensor and recoil start.

1750 PSI 1.3 Electric Pressure Washer
For lighter duty jobs like power-cleaning walls, yard equipment and vehicles, this electric pressure washer delivers up to 1750 PSI.  Lightweight and portable, this pressure washer features 4-in. diameter wheels and a 20 ft. pressure hose. When the trigger is released, the flow stops automatically to prolong motor life.

Here a few tips when using a pressure washer:

Wear appropriate safety attire. That means safety googles and protective footwear like rubber boots—might as well make them waterproof. Long pants and a long-sleeved shirt are also advised for protecting your limbs from flying dirt and debris.

Protect plants and breakable objects. It’s easy for items to get damaged if accidentally hit with a high-pressure stream of water. Simply move or cover items to protect them.

Prep the pressure washer for use. Sounds basic but it will save you a lot of hassle! If it’s a gas-powered pressure washer, fill it with the appropriate engine oil and gasoline—do not fill it while it’s on! If it’s a plug-in washer, plug it in to a properly grounded outlet.

Connect the water supply hose (e.g. garden hose) to the inlet. Turn on the water supply before turning on the pressure washer to avoid damaging the pump.

Fill the reservoir with a detergent solution if you want extra cleaning power. Make sure the solution is compatible for use with a pressure washer.

Attach the proper spray tip to the nozzle. Certain tips may be required when using detergent. Be sure to read the user manual carefully.

Position the spray tip at least 2 feet from the surface. When starting to pressure wash, it’s better to start further back and gradually move closer. You may risk damaging the surface if you hold the tip closer than 12 inches.

Move the spray in a side-to-side motion. Don’t spray too long in any one spot.

Apply detergent starting low and moving upwards. Allow the detergent to soak for at least three minutes before rinsing. Don’t let it dry—rinse the surface by spraying water from the top down.

Flush the system if using detergent. When the job is completed, follow the manufacturer’s instructions for flushing the system.

 

Once you start using a pressure, you’ll truly wonder how you ever got along without one. To view the pressure washers featured above, visit your local Harbor Freight Tools store.

10 in. 2.5 HP Tile/Brick Saw

The remodeler’s best friend

Growing up, we were taught not to mix water and electricity. So, when it comes to remodeling projects, we may be hesitant at first to use a tile saw which utilizes water and electricity—and a diamond rim rotating blade! But you needn’t worry because there’s no better way to cut a voluminous amount of tile or other masonry materials than with a tile saw, also known as a “wet saw.”

The Chicago Electric 10 in. 2.5 HP Tile/Brick Saw is a must-have for remodeling with tile, brink and other masonry.


The two-position cutting head enables you to adjust the blade for a variety of materials up to 3-1/2 inches thick and 24 inches in length or width. You can also make 22.5° and 45° bevel cuts. The tile saw includes a 3-gallon per minute water pump and high-impact ABS water tub that’s easy to clean. Additional features include a powerful dual capacity motor with sealed bearings and thermal overload protection, heavy-duty cast alloy column and cutting head for reduced vibration and an oversized steel frame with a precision linear bar system for smooth operation. The folding stand with wheels and diamond blade shown are sold separately.

If you’re never used a tile saw before, here are a few tips to get you started.

 


Position the tile saw on a solid and level surface. Sawing on a wobbly table could result in inaccurate cuts and potential injury.

 


Fill the tile saw’s reservoir with clean water—use a garden hose or pitcher. Make sure that the water pump is completely submerged.

 


Position the tile onto the cutting board. Adjust the fence so the blade lines up with the pencil mark demarcating where the cut should be. Keep the widest part of the tile between the fence and the blade so you can keep your hand as far from the blade as possible.

For cutting tiles along the diagonal, position a miter guide or speed square between the tile and the fence.

When making partial cuts, for example, an L-shaped cut to fit around an electrical outlet, set up the cut the same way but only feed the tile far enough into the blade as needed.

 


Position the tile, turn on the saw and make sure water is being sprayed onto the blade before cutting the tile.

 


Use a steady grip to feed the tile slowly into the blade, especially toward the edges of the tile as this is where the most breakage can occur. Do not force the cut.

 


When the cut is complete, carefully pull the pieces away and turn off the saw. Position the next tile for cutting and repeat the steps above.

Additional safety notes:

The water keeps the blade and tile cool and helps prevent particles from flying around. The water should flow freely around the entire cutting edge of the blade. If not, don’t begin cutting as this could damage the blade as well as the tile and potentially cause serious injury.

Always keep your hands away from the line of the cut to prevent injury.

Always wear safety glasses to prevent particles from injuring your eyes.

 


To insure electrical safety, it’s best to create a “drip loop.” See the illustrations above. Notice how the loop is lower than the outlet so water does not drip into the outlet.

The Chicago Electric 10 in. 2.5 HP Tile/Brick Saw is an unbeatable value—many customers have expressed how it’s cheaper to buy this tile saw than to rent one from a big box store.  The only problem is there will be no excuse not to tackle more remodeling jobs! Check out other tile saws and accessories available from Harbor Freight or visit your local Harbor Freight Tools store.

Harbor Freight Drills Down on Drill Bits

All drill bits are not created equal—there are many different types of bits and a variety of materials used to make them. In some cases, the same drill bit can be used on different materials, but is it necessarily the best choice? It’s important to know a bit about bits to optimize the results of your respective task or project …

 

Twist Bits
These are some of the most common bits to find in the handyman’s toolbox. Used with either a hand or electric drill, the front edges cut the material and the spirals remove the debris along the length of the bit. However, there is a lot of variation with these bits. HSS (High Speed Steel) bits are generally characterized by their black color but more expensive and durable ones may contain cobalt or titanium coating (identified by the gold color). Titanium increases the hardness of the bit and facilitates a lubricating quality which is effective when drilling metals but has little impact on other materials.

Harbor Freight has several Twist Bit sets from which to choose, including the Titanium Drill Bit Set 29 Pc. These titanium drill bits run cooler, drill smoother and last up to three times longer than standard drill bits. The bits range in size from 1/16 in. to ½ in. in 64ths.

Harbor Freight also carries the 115 Pc Cobalt Drill Bit Set. These cobalt drill bits retain their hardness up to 1000 degrees Fahrenheit making them ideal for drilling cast iron, heat-treated steel, stainless steel and other hard materials. With 135 degree tips, the cobalt drill bits not only last longer but also cut faster than standard high speed steel bits.

 

Brad Point Bits (a.k.a. wood or dowel bits)
These bits are best used on wood (some plastics) and are characterized by a small point at the tip of the bit. Spurs on either side cut clean, straight holes. They’re ideal for drilling holes for dowels, which is why they’re also called dowel bits. These drill bits are a staple for wood workers.

Harbor Freight offers the Brad Point Wood Drill Bit Set 7 Pc with 3/8 inch cutdown shanks. These outstanding bits resist skating and feature extra sharp flutes designed to smooth hole sides while ejecting chips faster to prevent overheating your drill. For projects utilizing either hard or soft woods, this set of brad point bits gets the job done quickly and accurately.

 

Auger Drill Bits
These bits are designed to cut large, deep and accurate flat-bottomed holes. The spiraling shaft comes to a fine, threaded point while the single spur cuts and defines the hole’s edge. The threaded center bites into the wood, pulling the bit into the timber. This pulling action makes it unsuitable for use in power drills.

Harbor Freight has several sets of auger drill bits available, starting with the Auger Bit Set 7 Pc. These 7-1/2 in. long auger bits make fast, clean holes in both soft and hard woods. The bits are made of heat-treated alloy steel that resists damage from nails. Other features include quick-change 3/8 in. dia. hex shanks and a ¼ in. bit with a ¼ in. hex shank.

Other Harbor Freight auger bits set include the 18 in. Ship Auger Bit Set 3 Pc and Stubby Auger Bit Set 6 Pc.

 

Wood Spade Bits (a.k.a. Paddle Bits, Flat Wood Bits)
The pointed tip centers the hole as the paddle-shaped blade bores large, wide holes. Sizes are clearly marked on the face of each bit. These larger bits require a fairly powerful drill and lend themselves to drilling fairly large flat-bottomed holes with a center point—works especially well when the head of a screw or bolt needs to be recessed in the lumber. The bits can cause a lot of splintering as they breakthrough the work piece but a sacrificial backing board will reduce this. These bits are not recommended for enlarging an existing hole.

Harbor Freight offers a variety of wood spade bit sets, including the Steel Spade Drill Bit Set 13 Pc. The extended spurs effortlessly cut crisp, clean holes in thick stock. Each bit is forged and heat-treated to withstand rigorous use. The ¼ inch quick-change shank works with drills and impact drivers.

Other Harbor Freight offerings include the Steel Spade Bit Set 6 Pc, Steel Large Diameter Spade Bit Set 4 Pc, and the Steel Stubby Spade Bit Set 3 Pc.

 

Masonry Bits
As the name implies, these drill bits are designed to be used on masonry material, including brick, block, stone, quarry tiles and concrete. The cutting tip is often made of tungsten carbide bonded to a spiral steel shaft. Generally, masonry bits are used in a hand drill but can also be used in a hand brace or hammer action power drill (though cheaper bits can shatter due to the action). Long masonry bits can be used for drilling through masonry walls.

Harbor Freight provides several masonry bit options, including the Masonry Drill Bit Set 5 Pc featuring M2 high-speed steel shanks and C2 carbide tips with 6% cobalt. The 8 in. SDS Masonry Bit Set 6 Pc features a superior hardening process and an enhanced flute design that helps the bits run cooler.

 

Tile and Glass Bits
The tips of these bits are designed to penetrate tile or glass, then enlarge the hole as the bit penetrates the material. The tips are usually made with tungsten carbide. The bits can be used in a hand drill but are best used with a variable speed power drill on a slow speed. Lubricants should be used to keep the tip cool when drilling.

Harbor Freight offers the Carbide Tip Glass and Tile Cutting Drill Bit Set 6 Pc featuring C-3 tungsten carbide tips and a steel shaft for drilling glass, ceramics, plastics and Formica tiles. The wide base angle provides precise, stable drilling.

 

Countersink Bits
Using a power or hand drill, these bits penetrate material and form a conical recess to accommodate the heads of countersunk screws. Countersink bits are generally designed for use on softer materials.

Harbor Freight carries the Carbon Steel Tapered Drill Bit and Countersink Set, 22 Pc. The bits are made from heat-treated steel and designed with a unique single-twist design to remove material more efficiently, resulting in cleaner holes. The set includes seven drills, seven countersinks, seven stop-collars and an individually organized wooden storage box for easy transport and organization.

 

Forstner Bits
These bits are used to form holes with flat bottoms, such as with kitchen cupboard hinges. It’s best to use a power drill with a drill stand for optimal accuracy.

Harbor Freight offers two Forstner bit sets, the 1/4 in. – 1 in. Forstner Drill Bit Set With 3/8 in. Shanks 7 Pc featuring high carbon steel construction and 3/8 in. reinforced shanks, and the 1/4 in. – 2-1/8 in. Forstner Drill Bit Set With 3/8 in. Shanks 16 Pc which includes more bits and a wood carrying case for storage.

 

That’s just the basics when it comes to drill bits. There are many other types of specialized drill bits as well, such as screwdriver bits, plug cutters and nut drivers.

Torquing It to the Limit with Breaker Bars

Real Tool Reviews compares four leading brands

 

Real Tool Reviews takes breaker bars to their limit, comparing four top pro-grade brands with ½ inch drives – Pittsburgh Pro (available at Harbor Freight Tools) along with Snap-On, Matco and Mac Tools. For those of you unfamiliar with what a breaker bar is:

A breaker bar is a long non-ratcheting bar that is used with socket wrench style sockets. Breaker bars are used to break loose very tight fasteners because their additional length allows the same amount of force to generate significantly more torque than a standard length socket wrench. The use of a breaker bar also prevents damage to the ratcheting mechanism of a socket wrench. Often, after the first half turn of a fastener, the fastener is then loose enough to be turned with a socket wrench.1

Common applications include freeing lug nuts on vehicle wheels, freeing a variety of bolts in car repair and maintenance where rust is a common problem, manufacturing applications, home renovating projects and any other instance in which a bolt has become frozen in place.2

Now that we’re all up to speed on breaker bars, let’s dive into the review.

First off, length. Length is a key component of breaker bars since it’s the leverage provided that enables the user to generate significantly more torque compared to a standard wrench. Note that the Pittsburgh Pro brand is advertised as a 25-inch breaker bar and the other three as 24-inch breaker bars. The actual measurements are as follows:


Pictured top to bottom: Matco, Pittsburgh Pro, Snap-On and Mac

Length
Snap-On: 23-3/4 in.
Matco: 25-1/2 in.
Mac Tools: 24-5/8 in.
Pittsburgh Pro: 25 in.

The weight of each breaker bar was also measured.

Weight
Snap-On: 2 lbs., 3 oz.
Matco: 2 lbs., 4.5 oz.
Mac Tools: 2 lbs., 3-1/2 oz.
Pittsburgh Pro: 2 lbs., 7 oz.

Next, the drives were shown side-by-side.


Drive ends of the four brands

The Matco and Mac breaker bars have black ends while the Snap-On and Pittsburgh Pro versions have chrome ends. This really seems to be an area of preference with no discernable difference in terms of performance.

The handles, however, have the potential of making a significant difference.


Breaker bar handles

Each breaker bar handle has a two-piece design to secure a good hold—the colored portion is comprised of hard plastic with the black portion made of a softer rubber overmold, though the Pittsburgh Pro’s black material is respectively firmer than the other three. The handle lengths vary as well.

Handle length
Snap-On: 5-1/8 in.
Matco: 6-3/4 in.
Mac Tools: 4-5/8 in.
Pittsburgh Pro: 5-3/8 in.


Handle center positions marked

Leverage is a significant factor to consider and that’s why the length of a breaker bar is so important—applying the same amount of pressure or weight on the end can generate more torque respectively. Bar length alone though does not provide the working “length” in terms of leverage—Real Tool Reviews marked the center position of each handle which is where the user’s hand would naturally rest (see picture above). Taking the handle center points into consideration, the Mac breaker bar actually had the most length from the pivot point which suggests it would provide the most torque. But the real proof comes next.


Deflection and torque testing

The review moved on to testing the deflection of each breaker bar (how much the tool bends when applying force) and the resulting torque generated. The results may surprise you …

Torque
Snap-On: 281 ft. lbs.
Matco: 266 ft. lbs.
Mac Tools: 276 ft. lbs.
Pittsburgh Pro: 298 ft. lbs.

With the performance testing completed, the final comparison was on price. That’s where the results varied the most …

Price
Snap-On: $148.47 (with tax and free shipping)
Matco: $146.67 (with tax and shipping)
Mac Tools: $121.08 (with tax and shipping)
Pittsburgh Pro: $16.84 (using 20% coupon and no shipping cost – picked up at store)

Snap-On, Matco and Mac breaker bars are between seven and nine times higher in price compared to the Pittsburgh Pro brand, yet, as the torque testing revealed, Pittsburgh Pro generated the greatest amount of torque.

In conclusion, the performance of all four was similar with the Pittsburgh Pro coming in with the highest torque generated, 32 ft. lbs. higher than the Matco breaker bar. The handles differed from brand to brand but the biggest difference was on price. The review noted that all the breaker bars tested come with a lifetime warranty against manufacturing defects. Pittsburgh Pro is clearly the best value.
