What size drill?

We opted to not get the power stabilizers. Is it preferred to use a 12v or 18v drill?

I just got a cheapo from Harbor Freight. I use the x chock wrench to go more than the drill will go if needed.

Get 18 volt, 12 volt is really useless.

I got the Ryobi set, multiple batteries, with quick recharge. Now, if you are going to get a battery powered impact driver to take off lug nuts, use whatever battery base it uses and get the drill to match. Commonality counts for a lot.

We often have a Dewalt 18 Volt with two batteries on sale for $85.00 CDN at local stores. That is what I used.

We did fine with a cordless 12 volt drill.

I had a 12volt, worked great after I broke the seal(loosened)
same with lowering the stabalizers the 12volt just couldn't get it tight enough.

18 V DeWalt here. They make tons of tools that work with the same batteries. Not sure how long the 18 will be around with the 20V here but I'm hoping for a while. Just don't use a impact for this, those people must be oblivious to how obnoxious and far traveling that sound is.

A contractor friend of mind said he always bought the Harbor Freight tool since found there is a direct coloration between the price and how fast he people would drop it off a ladder onto a concrete floor.

DK. Same correlation on a piece of toast with jelly on it landing on your carpet face down depends on the cost of your carpet.

I had an old Skil 3/8 corded laying in a box, it got drafted works well and no battery to go dead.

No power you say, 5500 watt gen will run it just fine.

I am sure we all have a 3/8th corded in our box but sometimes the "gen" isn't with us.
