HOTO Tools 12V Brushless Drill: Does it work as well as it looks?


Sometimes, the functionality of a product is compromised by the design aesthetic – form over function. And, sometimes it’s not…  

HOTO Tools, which is short for Home Tools, sent me this 12V Brushless Drill Kit for me to unbox and review. This is not a sponsored video and I’m not being paid, so watch me check out this new drill. I didn’t know if it was a useful tool, or just another pretty face!

Check out the video to see if its looks match its performance!

You might have already guessed that I love tools!

Unboxing and giving you my initial impressions is something I am happy to be able to share with you.

Check out the video for more details and to see this drill in use!

I count this as a very useful tool, and it has earned a space in my collection of favorite tools!

The quality of this HOTO Tools Brushless Drill was beyond my expectations. It feels like something NASA or James Bond would use, and it looks great too!

From the moment I opened the top-notch package, I knew this was no ordinary tool! Not only is it very quiet, solid and strong, the digital display is a welcome addition too. I’ve never seen a drill with actual torque settings and not just a clutch. Very impressive and useful!

The accessories included in the kit are also top quality, not like some kits that are stuffed with low budget bits and pieces to make them appear more valuable. This kit really is a great value.

Now I’m wanting to try some of HOTO Tools other offerings since this one is off to a great start. I’ll be reviewing a Smart Laser Distance Measure and a soon-to-be-released Rotary Tool too, so stay tuned!

The great news is that HOTO Tools provided a code for you to receive 10% off your order if you would like to purchase one of these drill kits for yourself.
