Earlier in the holiday shopping season, I caught glimpse of an advance list of Amazon tool deals. This Porter Cable 8-tool 20V Max cordless power tool combo kit, PCCK619L8, looked to have been slated for a Black Friday deal of the day. That didn’t happen, but I kept a close eye on this kit.
Now, the 8-tool combo kit has dropped in price, to $349. Looking at historical pricing, I can see that it typically lives at a price of $400 or more. It was $450 when it first landed on my radar as a prospective deal of the day item.
Now, it’s back at $349, and it looks like it might stay there for some time, possibly as a mid-to-late-season holiday deal.
I tend to like Porter Cable 20V Max cordless power tools, for the value-priced tools that they are. This kit gives you a good selection and cordless power tools, a 1.5Ah battery pack, and a 4.0Ah battery pack.
Is this something I’d buy for myself, today? No. Is this something I would have loved to have received a few years ago when I could only budget for a cordless drill kit? Absolutely.
For a DIYer or pro on a very strict budget, this kit gives you a lot of functionality for a reasonable price.
Some of the tools are Porter Cable’s less premium offerings, such as the drill and impact driver, but the circular saw is a 6-1/2″ model, rather than their 5-1/2″ saw, and you get 1.5Ah and 4.0Ah battery packs, rather than 1.3Ah batteries.
So, while it’s not a premium Porter Cable cordless combo kit, there are a few upgrades that add to its value.
