A point to consider

If you're starting out with a new 10.8V tool, it's important to consider the range you're buying into and which tools will work best for the jobs you need. Once you own your first tool and battery set it can then make it economical to buy body only tools and buy extra batteries if you need them as you start to build up your collection.
