Differences in torque/power between corded and cordless?
Hey. I apologize if this has already been discussed -- but, if so, could you please direct me to the conversation?
My question is this; what is the difference in torque between corded and cordless drills?
It seems like the cordless drills have a higher max torque than corded drills on average. In fact, most of the corded drills seem to have a relatively low max torque rating (Under 40 nm.), and I don't think I've come across one with a 135nm (Milwaukee cordless 18v), or 136nm (Hitachi cordless 18v) rating. But, I thought the general consensus was that corded drills are significantly stronger?
So, what's the deal here? Can the cordless batteries nowadays easily supply more power than a regular power outlet, and with a, what I assume, much smaller motor in the drill?
Or are the torque ratings meaningless?
