Top 10 Power Tool Christmas Gifts

Joseph Coupal - Monday, December 09, 2019

Christmas is two weeks away. If you are behind on your shopping or trying to finish-up, here is a list of the most popular power tools for the DIY on your list.

Makita 18V Sub-Compact Combo Kit

Makita designed one of the best subcompact kits on the market. With the size of a 12V drill and impact but the power of a 18V tool, these subcompacts are a game changer. Lightweight and powerful all in one.

12V 2-Tool Combo Kit

If you want a great 12V drill and impact, check out the Bosch. Lightweight, small and powerful. Perfect for those jobs where space is at a premium or if you don’t want to carry around the weight of the 18V tools.

DEWALT 12″ Sliding Compound Miter Saw

This is the one and only compound miter saw to own. This has won the TIA awards for a number of years in a row. The Dewalt saw is accurate and easy to use. If you are looking for the perfect miter saw, the Dewalt is the one to own.

Milwaukee Cordless Sawzall Reciprocating Saw

Milwaukee Tool owns the reciprocating saw. Some people want a bigger reciprocating saw tool for their arsenal. The Milwaukee saw is powerful and low in vibrations. Perfect for that long work day.

Top-Handle Jigsaw

When it comes to Jig Saw, Bosch is the one to own. The Bosch Jig Saw is overlooked by some, but ask anyone who owns one and you will get an instant smile. Smooth and powerful, the Bosch is the perfect tool to get jiggy with.

Dewalt 10-Inch Jobsite Table Saw

As with the Miter saw, Dewalt makes an incredible table saw. While the stand needs a little work, the saw is top notch. Smooth and very accurate, but most of all, extremely powerful to cut through any size lumber.

Oscillating Multi-Tool Kit

The Oscillating tool. No one does it like Bosch. The tool is a perfect fit for any hands and extremely low in vibration. Quick blade changes and the variable speed make this the oscillating tool to own.

Makita (36V) Brushless Rear Handle Circular Saw

The one and only cordless circular saw to own, the Makita rear handle saw. We used this circular saw for my roof. Time and time again it proved to work hard. No cords to mess around with and powerful enough to cut our old lumber. The runtime is exceptional. If you are looking for a cordless circular saw, the Makita Rear Handle Circular Saw is the one to own.

Milwaukee Cordless Rocket LED Light with 9.0Ah Battery

When it comes to lighting and the power tool world, Milwaukee Tool does it right. With a ton of lighting solutions, the tower light is one of our favorites. Lights up an area, easy to adjust and spread the light without any heat build up.

Bosch 3 Plane Leveling Alignment Laser

Considered the best laser by some, the Bosch is known for their quality and accurate lasers. This bad boy laser creates a 360° line and is perfect for any job. Very easy to see and the self-leveling makes it a simple and painless set up. Amazon is selling this for $350.

Fuel Related Reasons for Outdoor Power Equipment Repair

Monnick Supply performs outdoor power equipment repair constantly for lawnmowers, snow blowers, chainsaws, leaf blowers and more. Some have been damaged through specific situations, some have not been regularly maintained and have issues that can have been prevented, but most equipment failure is a result of fuel.

The biggest problem outdoor power equipment has is the fuel that is used. Gas from the pumps has a very short shelf life. In fact, it can degrade in a month’s time. So, if you are storing power tools with the gas in them, you are asking for problems when you go to use that equipment again. When equipment is stored with the gas in it, it will be very challenging or impossible to get the engine running.

Even stored fuel will degrade. To help keep your gas fresh use a gasoline stabilizer and store it in the right container. Fuel with gas stabilizer allows small engines to start more easily, increases their power and improves their performance. However, the best option is ethanol-free gasoline. Most small gas engine repairs are not the result of regular wear and tear, but are caused by ethanol in gasoline, which can cause rust and carbon deposits inside the engine, can dissolve plastic parts and more.

Other fuel related problems are common in two stroke engines which require a precise fuel-oil mix. Two stroke engines are generally found in small hand-held machines such as trimmers, chainsaws and leaf blowers. Unless the fuel/oil mixture is prepared according to the manufacturer's specifications, severe engine damage can result.
