I received the G-24 24v Cordless Combo Kit from Greenworks.  I immediately noticed the Drill and Impact Driver were lighter than my old cordless drill.  The combo kit came with the Greenworks drill and impact driver, two 24 volt Batteries and a charger. 

The Drill has a 24 step clutch and a convenient bit holder. The drill has a two speed switch on top and a variable speed trigger.  There is a led light placed to illuminate the work.  

The impact is extremely fast with a top speed of 3000 rpm and 2000 inches lbs of torque. The impact has 0-3600 bpm.  The impact also has a variable speed trigger and a led light like the drill.  Both came with a reversible belt clip.  

On-board battery "fuel" indicator allows for on-demand reference of remaining power. G-24 24V Lithium-Ion Battery delivers fade-free power with no memory loss after charging.

  I used the Greenworks G-24 24V Cordless 2-Speed Compact Drill to drill a pilot hole in the post to hang an eight foot gate.  The drill had amazing power and there was no hesitation making the job quick and easy.  The drill had a higher RPM than my old drill and more torque. 
 I needed an hose hanger in the wash area at the barn.  I used the drill to drill the holes and the impact to screw in the screws.  The Greenworks Drill had no problem drilling into the cement wall.  The Greenworks Impact driver made quick work of the screws.

I mounted a winch to help with lifting of the basket.  I again used the Greenworks Drill and G-24 24 Volt Impact Driver. The impact had so much torque I had to redo one hole due to the impact stripping out the screw.
Next was installing a motion activated light on the side of the barn.  the Greenworks drill was used with an hole saw and screwed in the junction box.  
I used the Greenworks Drill and Hole Saw to cut several holes in the bottom of the drum, ice chest, and trash can to plant Potatoes.  I have been using the Greenworks for about two weeks now and still have not needed to recharge the batteries.  

Greenworks has produced a front runner in the cordless power tools with the cordless drill and impact driver. Greenworks have put together a great warranty to go with the items.  They come with a four year warranty on the drill and impact and a two year warranty on the batteries.  There are several other items available from Greenworks to use with the G-24 batteries, including a circular saw and an air compressor. When you finish the list of items inside you can take the batteries and head outside. the G-24 system include pole saws, string trimmers and hedge trimmers. 

In short, I highly recommend purchasing the G-24 24 volt combo kit

  • The Drill and Impact are light in weight but not power.

  • The led light light shines exactly where you need it. 
  • The fade free batteries
  • The Fuel level on the batteries never leave you guessing.
  • The lasting power of the batteries
  • The batteries can be used on other tools.
