What voltage power tools do I need?
Power tools come in different voltages but which one is right for the job? When choosing a power tool, it’s important you select one that is powerful enough to get the job done.
The voltage rating indicates how much electrical power the appliance can deliver. Here are some common power tool voltages with an explanation of their applications:
- 3.6v: These are usually lightweight cordless screwdrivers that are easy to use around the house. They are perfect for small tasks like assembling flat packed furniture or hanging pictures.
- 12v: Compact and versatile and can handle light to medium jobs like drilling, cutting, or sanding. They are ideal for DIYers and homeowners who need a reliable and portable tool.
- 18v: Professional standard with more torque that can tackle heavy-duty tasks like drilling through concrete, metal, or wood. They are suitable for contractors and tradespeople who need a higher level of power and durability.
- 20v: Similar to 18v, but with a slightly higher voltage and performance. They are usually designed to work with lithium-ion batteries that offer a longer run time and faster charging.
- 110v: The set standard for use on commercial sites. They are corded and require a transformer to operate. These are just as powerful as their 240v counterparts but are safer due to the lower voltage.
- 240v: These are corded, run on mains electricity and provide excellent power and performance. They are used for demanding, heavy duty tasks such as construction and demolition. 240v electrical appliances are not normally permitted on commercial sites due to health and safety. If you are unsure, then check with the site manager.
