One of the best ways to jump into a new battery platform is by buying a cordless tool combo kit. The best power tool combo kit gives you the tools you need. It should also include a couple of higher-capacity batteries and more than just entry-level products.

Some manufacturers offer really comprehensive kits that can run $2,000 or more. However, the most popular kits include those 4 core tools every general contractor needs. Which ones? Core tools include a cordless drill, impact driver, circular saw, and reciprocating saw. Most brands tend to throw in a small work light as well. Others swap out the reciprocating saw for an oscillating multi-tool.

Some brands go further than just those 4 basic cordless tools. You’ll see some kits that include other tools. But what we’re looking for here is the smallest kit each brand offers that includes (where possible) those 4 core products. We’ll make our recommendations and then go through our best picks from some of the main tool brands as well.

Makita, DeWalt, and Milwaukee really go head to head for the best overall in this group. When it came down to it, we just liked the grouping and value in the Makita kit a tiny bit more. All the top kits take advantage of brushless motors and are awfully close in performance specs. They also give you outstanding tools all the way around and are a step above the rest with their circular and reciprocating saws.

Makita, DeWalt, and Milwaukee also have very deep product lines to keep you on the platform for all your cordless tools. At around $749, you get a lot of bang for your buck when jumping into the Makita 18V LXT platform. This is also our pick for the best Makita power tool combo kit. They have larger kits, but this hits the sweet spot.

Value combines what you get for what you spend. When we came to our value recommendation, we had the trades in mind. We wanted to suggest a kit that lets them build up their tools over time. In the end, we decided this Milwaukee Tool combo kit delivered the goods.

We can’t help but steer people towards Milwaukee and the 2998-25 combo kit for its baseline tools. Milwaukee, like Makita and DeWalt, has a very deep product line. With so many tools customized for the plumbing and mechanical industry, we just felt the Milwaukee 5-tool combo kit made for a solid recommendation—particularly for anyone in the trades. In our opinion, it’s the best Milwaukee cordless M18 tool kit you can buy if you want to quickly build up a system.

With that said, how on earth is this kit a value since it runs $699??? Simple. Buying these tools separately, you’d spend around $905. On top of that, Milwaukee and Acme Tools frequently run sales during holidays—watch out for those to save even more. Of course, if you want something less expensive, see our Best DIY tool combo kit recommendation and also our combo kit picks by brand below.

Once again DeWalt takes the top spot when it comes to overall ergonomics. Their combination of tools that fit well in hand, compactness, and light weight is unmatched at this stage. We love this kit for its blend of powerful tools that have a nice comfortable grip. Unlike most kits in this list, you also get a cordless grinder tossed in for good measure!

The new Ryobi One+ HP line of tools has really impressed us to no end. Ryobi remains a perennial best value when it comes to entry-level tools for the trades. While they don’t quite match the build quality you’ll enjoy with brands like Milwaukee, DeWalt, or Makita, Ryobi backs their tools with a 3-year limited warranty. After you buy this kit, add a larger circular saw and consider a full-size recip saw. Still, for just $399, how do you beat the value of these tools?

We also like the value presented by options from the Kobalt 24V line of tools as well as what you can find from Ridgid. Both supply high-performance brushless combo kits for less than $500. For both Ridgid and Kobalt, the limitation comes in the number of tools available on their battery platform. However, as they continue to expand, they’ll both be legitimate options as a primary Pro platform.

While you’d think we might limit our recommendations to “full-sized” tools only, the 6-1/2″ circular included in this 3-piece kit from Hart Tools does pretty well. For a basic set of tools, this Hart combo does more with less.

For $148, this gets you into a very usable set of tools on a fast-growing platform. Hart Tools has everything from drills, impact drivers, and saws to battery-powered fans and tire inflators. Get more info at the Hart Tools website.

It’s actually tough to get a comprehensive 12V combo kit. However, if your heart is set on 12V, Skil has you covered. They do a uniquely solid job of providing a wide array of tools in this category. The PWRCore 12 line seems perfect for those wanting smaller ergonomic tools for light-duty work. In particular, we like the inclusion of a 5.5-inch circular saw and right-angle impact. The kit also includes a pair of PWRCore 12V batteries. Almost as a cherry on top, they added the Skil 12V inflator which we found to be an excellent product.

Once again this 5-piece combo kit from DeWalt takes our top recommendation due to what it includes. You get tools that blend—almost perfectly—power and great ergonomics. We love the key tools DeWalt includes in this rather obscure kit. It puts together some really powerful tools that let you do almost anything.

As mentioned above in our top-spot pick, this brushless kit from Makita is hard to beat—though some come close! The kit gives you a well-rounded start with some top tools that you can really build up from. It even includes the XDT16 which was held the top spot as our best impact driver. At just $749, this Makita combo kit gives you a whole lot of value when getting into the 18V LXT platform. Makita does have some larger kits—much larger, in fact—if you want to really splurge. This one just seems to hit all our key metrics.

Value combines what you get for what you spend. When we came to our value recommendation, we had the trades in mind. We wanted to suggest a kit that lets them build up their tools over time. In the end, we decided this Milwaukee Tool combo kit delivered the goods.

We can’t help but steer people towards Milwaukee and the 2998-25 combo kit for its baseline tools. Milwaukee, like Makita and DeWalt, has a very deep product line. With so many tools customized for the plumbing and mechanical industry, we just felt the Milwaukee 5-tool combo kit made for a solid recommendation—particularly for anyone in the trades.

We love the ergonomics of these Bosch power tools. They feel solid in the hand and comfortable. Picking up a Bosch, we often wonder why we don’t reach for these tools more often. Quality also never seems to fail on these tools.

Ridgid continues to represent one of the best values among brands clearly at the Pro level. Performance isn’t as high all-around as we see with Milwaukee and Makita, but there are some bright spots to go along with solid mid-level performance. Ergonomics fall away from the design that contours well to your hand that some other brands have. If we can find a downside to this kit, it’s that you get no brushless tools here—but once on the platform, you can upgrade at will. We do hope they add new kits with tools from the Ridgid brushless power tools line.

This best Ryobi combo kit also showed up as our best value pick. It has 6 serious tools, and all of them utilize HP brushless motors. That’s not the case with most Ryobi combo kits. provides an amazing value at $399. It also gives you a 3-year warranty supplemented with a lifetime service agreement. You get a full-size 7-1/4-inch circular saw, impact driver, orbital-action reciprocating saw, and a solid hammer drill.

We have remained impressed with the Kobalt XTR power tools line. Their Kobalt 24V XTR 5-tool combo kit provides an almost ridiculous bargain at $449. The tools carry a 5-year limited warranty and you get a really nice starter set of cordless power tools. Included is a full-size 7-1/4-inch brushless circular saw, an XTR impact driver, reciprocating saw with orbital action, XTR hammer drill, and LED light. Kobalt tosses in both a compact 2Ah battery and a 4Ah extended runtime pack.

At $299, this V20 cordless combo kit from Craftsman gives a solid base from which to build your system. The tools and batteries include a 3-year limited warranty, so you get some peace of mind. This kit also includes both a 6.5-inch circular saw and a reciprocating saw. You also get the expected drill and impact driver along with a handy oscillating multi-tool and LED light. Finally, Craftsman includes a pair of compact 2Ah batteries.

The 4-tool combo kit consisting of a drill, im
