It’s been said that sometimes less is more, but when it comes to power tools, who are they kidding? In this case, more is always more. More tools, more power, more projects, more variety, more more more! So in this section I’m going to talk about tool kits that give you more – tools! That’s right, combo kits are put together by tool manufacturers so you can get more tools, usually with more accessories, in one place. It’s kind of like Tool Heaven for some of us. So let’s take a look at some combo kits I found and see if your new best friends are here. Trust me, there’s no way any tool lover will walk away from these without a feeling of longing and a deep desire to drop those credit card numbers and get a hold of one of these combo kits.

Tool manufacturers often sell their products in combination packs, which are usually a pretty good value when it comes to pricing, and sometimes it can even turn out that you get one tool basically for free, depending on how many tools are packaged together and what their individual prices are. So I figured it would be a good idea to see what kind of combo packs are out there and check a few out. I absolutely had to take a look at Makita’s #1 selling combo kit, which is the LCT209W 2-piece combo kit.
