The company says these tools feature durable motors, components and housings “that can take a beating” while offering comfortable ergonomics and boasting light weight.

The 18V lithium 1/2-in. drill/driver kit (BTC400LB) features a 2-speed high-torque/speed gearbox (0-350/0-1500 RPM) and a 1/2-in. keyless metal locking chuck for bit retention and chuck durability, while a 24 position clutch helps to reduce fastener stripping. The 18V 1/4-in. hex chuck impact driver kit (BTC440LB) offers an impact driver with a variable-speed trigger that provides 0-2800 RPM and 0-3100 beats-per-minute. (Note: the 18V battery is compatible with all 18V Bostitch power tools.)

The 7A 1/2-in. hammer drill kit (BTE140K) sports a dual-speed selector switch for toggling speed and power between 0-1100/0-3100 RPM. It features a metal gear housing, 360º side handle and built-in depth rod. The 8.5A recip saw kit (BTE360K) features a 1-1/8-in. stroke length with 0-3000 strokes per minute, and tool-free blade change. The 6.5A 3/8-in. drill kit (BTE100K) includes a 6.5A motor, features speeds between 0-2500 RPM and an all-metal 3/8-in. locking chuck.
