Cordless power tools have become quite popular in the power tool industry. They have become the easy choice for most homeowners because of the convenience they offer. Even pros can have a kick out of these cordless power tools for a lot of jobs.

Porter-Cable is among the top manufacturers of power tools today, and they have an impressive selection of cordless power tools. They have been in the industry for more than a century, and they are not stopping now.

The company has provided us with tools over the years that are truly reliable and of top quality. Here are two of their combo kit bestsellers that you will surely find a use for. Check them out to see which one is best suited for your needs.

PORTER-CABLE PCCK604L2 Combo Kit

This first combo kit packs power that every homeowner will need. Professionals can also use these when they need reliable tools to handle lighter jobs. In this kit, you will get a drill driver and an impact driver. You can have this combo for less than $155.

The included drill driver is the PCC600. This has a rated torque of 330 UWO (Unit Watts Out), which is the company’s standard measure of power. This has two-speed settings, 0-400 RPM, and 0-1,600 RPM. You can also choose from 23 clutch settings to best suit the job you are working on.

The other features of the drill are that it has a magnetic bit holder and it comes with a tool belt clip. This also weighs 3.5 lbs. and measures 7 ¾ in. long.

The included impact driver is the PCC640. The impact driver produces 1,495 in. lbs. of power with a variable speed trigger. It has a maximum speed of 2,900 RPM and can do 3,100 BPM. The impact driver is slightly smaller and lighter compared to the drill driver. The impact driver has a weight of 3.2 lbs. and length of 6.2 in.

Both of these tools have a built-in LED work light above its trigger, so you have extra illumination. They also both have battery fuel gauges at the foot so you can estimate how much power the tools have left.

These tools are powered by 20V lithium-ion batteries. The kit includes two batteries for one for each tool. The batteries are rated at 1.5 Ah so you will probably get a good 15-20 minutes of runtime for constant use.

The battery takes about 40 minutes to fully recharge. You can get an extra battery so you can use the tool while recharging the other one to save time. If you are only using one of the tools, then you can use its battery because these batteries can be used on any Porter-Cable 20V power tool.

Inside the kit bag, you will also get one charger, a double-ended bit tip, and a #2 PH screwdriving bit. (See guide here)

  • Compact and lightweight
  • Fast battery charger
  • Backed by a 3-year limited warranty, 1-year free service and 90-day money back guarantee
  • High-quality construction

Porter-Cable PCCK604L2 20V Combo Kit

This other combo kit is more expensive than the other one. This will cost you almost $200. The PCCK604L2 is a really good deal for homeowners but not for professionals. It does not have much power to offer which makes it more suited for everyday household tasks and DIY projects.

The PCC601 is the drill driver that comes in this kit. It only has a power of 283 UWO. It has two-speed settings which are 0-350 at low gear and 0-1,500 at high gear. You can easily change bits with its ½” keyless chuck. There is also onboard bit storage on the tool itself.

The drill driver has a weight of 3.5 lbs. This is also slightly bigger than the one in the first kit measuring 8.25 in. long.

Along with the drill driver, you will also get the PCC641 impact driver. This has a torque of 1,450 in. lbs. with a maximum speed of 2,800 RPM. This impact driver can also do 3,100 BPM. This also has onboard bit storage at the foot that can hold three bits at the same time.

Without the battery, the impact driver weighs at 1.3 lbs. This is also slightly bigger compared to the other impact driver measuring at 6.9 in. long.

Both these tools also have built-in LED work lights. So, when you are working on darker areas, eye strain will be minimized.

They also both use 20V lithium-ion batteries rated at 1.3 AH. These tools would run shorter compared to the first combo kit.

Unfortunately, both of these tools don’t have battery fuel gauges. You can only know when to recharge when the tool actually stops. You may also notice it starting to decline in performance indicating low battery charge.

Other items included in this kit are a charger, a double-ended screw driving bit, and a #2 Phillips bit tip. All these will come in a standard small kit bag.

Pros:

  • Compact and lightweight
  • Can handle household jobs and DIY projects
  • Backed by a 3-year limited warranty, 1-year free service and 90-day money back guarantee
  • Fast battery charger
  • Comfortable to hold and with good balance

Cons:

  • Has no battery fuel gauge
  • Does not come in a hard storage case
  • Lower battery capacity
  • Not for heavy duty jobs

Product Comparison:

These combo kits both have drill drivers and impact drivers. All the tools are cordless which makes all of them convenient and easy to use. They also use 20V batteries which can be interchanged among other 20V power tools from Porter-Cable.

The differences between the two combo kits are the power and speed the tools have and their prices. The PCCK602L2 is cheaper and offers more power. It can be used for household jobs, DIY projects, as well as light professional jobs.

The PCCK604L2 is more expensive but offers less power. It is more suitable for household jobs and DIY projects. This is not recommended for professional jobs because it will not be able to handle those.

Coming from the same manufacturer, they are backed by the same 3-year limited warranty. You will also get 1-year free service for tool maintenance. If you are not totally satisfied with the tools, you can return it within 90-days from the date of purchase.

Recommendation:

If you are a pro who wants reliable tools to handle lighter masonry jobs, the PCCK602L2 is a great choice. Though you already have other tools designed for heavier tasks, you will need these to handle more delicate jobs. It will prevent you from mistakes that may cost you more.

The PCCK6604L2 is also a good deal. Homeowners and DIYers can really make the most out of the tools from this kit. Since you will only be handling everyday repairs and assembly, you won’t need much power to accomplish those. Great for demanding jobsites and woodworking projects alike.
