Kimo Drill Driver Review (Model 13811)

Mini Review:

This Kimo Drill/Driver kit is loaded with accessories/supplies. It is a solid starter kit and has tons of value. We have yet to see another kit priced like this that performs and saves you money. It’s not an every day/ all applications drill but it will perform the the base DIY and Handyman users.

First Impressions:

This was my first time every holding a Kimo product, so I didn’t know what to expect. To add to that, Amazon currently has this as their “Top Pick” and has solid customer reviews. My exact first impression when opening the box was “WOW”. Feels like a solid unit and comes with tons of accessories. I will list them out below. It feels like a Craftsman or Porter Cable drill but with loads of extras. So, this could easily  be described as a Starter Kit. You can accomplish a lot of projects with just this setup.

So, What's in the box?

It comes with the Drill Driver, 1 2.0AH 20v battery (currently running a free second promo), fast charger, 3 cleaning brushes, 3 brad point bits, 6 twist bits, 33 screw-driving bits, flexible shaft, user manual, and carry bag.

Review:

   The Kimo 20v Max Drill Driver kit will help you accomplish a lot of basic varied projects.  It bogged down a little with the 1″ spade bit on a 2×4 but did make it through. The lower max RPM of 1350 definitely shows when trying to power through harder materials with larger bits; on the flip side, standard wood and masonry bits performed with ease. This kit (and it deserves the name of KIT) comes with all of the basic accessories that would normally cost an additional $40-$50. The Kimo surprised me with how much you get for around the $60 mark. As a pleasant surprise, Amazon is currently shipping the unit with a coupon code for an additional free battery; I don’t know if they will continue to do this but we did receive it in the shipping box.  We recommend this unit because of three main reasons: value, 2 yr warranty, and solid performance. This Kimo Drill Driver kit will work for two of our The Tool Space users: DIY and Handyman.
