I consider Harbor Freight "throw away" tools. I typically buy them for one-time use projects or where I know I am likely to break a tool. Some things there are a good value, I have a stick welder that has held up reasonably well, Jack stands, grinders, sandpaper, etc. I haven't bought any of their cordless tools.I’d spend the money on a known brand vs harbour freight because it will be easier find batteries later on down the road…..
When I "drive" I like to drive a Cadillac, not a Yugo. The comment about batteries is important. Doesn't matter how good the driver is, if the batteries are junk, you'll never want to use it or always be frustrated because you'll feel that you should have just bought the corded variety. The charge time, run time, and longevity of the battery is really critical to cordless stuff.
