Neilson 18V Cordless Drill Driver Review

Well, before you read any further, it’s important to note that the Nielson 18V Cordless drill is more suited to being a screw driver rather than an all out drilling machine. It is also best suited for light usage, so if you’re looking for a power tool to do some heavy duty, regular drilling, this is not it.

So, doing things such as changing the battery is easy. Whatever the task you want to perform, be it drilling into sheet steel, wooden kitchen cabinets or just fixing up the screws in your latest item of flat pack furniture, you can do it all easily and safely with this tool.
