At Pro Tool Reviews, we’re obviously focusing on the Pro user market. As such, we don’t do a whole lot on the DIY side of things. But we do keep an eye on the overall market and sometimes there are innovations on the DIY side that raise our eyebrows. A good example is the new […]
Have you spent time checking circular saw accuracy? Did you even know that you should? Whether guiding against a rafter square or straightedge or just following a line freehand, your saw needs to be in tune for efficient cutting.

Several very excited people told me about the Worx HydroShot 20V Max Portable Power Cleaner before I got in my hands for review. To be perfectly honest, I wasn’t sure that a 320 PSI power washer really had any place in our shop or my home. But as it is with any tool we review, […]

Echo’s first foray into the cordless OPE world wasn’t bad, but it’s blower was kind of like the weird kid in the group with a strange design and okay performance.

The new Milwaukee M18 Fuel Circular Saw features a single 18V battery system that runs a 7-1/4″ blade. This entry into the full size cordless circular saw arena made waves because of the fact that it only uses that one M18 RedLithium battery. Questions were certainly raised as to whether it would be able to […]
Just as Electricians must constantly cut wire as a matter of course, Plumbers find the most repetitive task of the trade to be cutting pipe. Traditionally, we’ve used a hacksaw, a reciprocating saw, or a ratcheting hand cutter. But those first two require a large working area with no wall or other obstruction behind the […]
Often in our shootouts, we try to keep the list of tools reasonable. With so many features to consider and tons of wood to cut, it doesn’t typically make sense to invite everyone to the party. Sometimes it’s a price point, battery voltage, or top-rated tools that make the cut. But this time, we invited everyone […]
Lithium-Ion blowers are the category that every commercial lawn care Pro loves to hate. No matter what the marketing claims, cordless blowers just don’t push the kind of power that Pros need. But where does that leave the property owner that doesn’t need 200 MPH speeds couple with 600 CFM or more? Cordless blowers are […]
In a crowded field of lithium-ion blowers, the Ryobi 40V Jet Fan Blower enters the scene looking like some sort of futuristic death ray straight out of Dr. Who. While Ryobi does claim “gas-like power” with their 40V lineup, there’s no doubt their target user is the homeowner. So let’s dispense with the commercial lawn […]
