Head to Head Tool Reviews

Head to Head Tool Reviews: Not sure which tool is best for you? Having a hard time deciding which Brand offers the best performance?

Look no further than our Head to Head Tool Reviews here on Tool Box Buzz. A team of contractors and carpenters led by Rob Robillard and Todd Fratzel pit some of the best tools on the market head to head and give you detailed feedback.

Each head to head tool review starts off with specifically designed tests that allow us to showcase the tool in real world applications. During the testing we typically have 5-7 individuals with varying backgrounds use the tools so we can develop a matrix of results and opinions on the tools performance.

The results are used to develop our head to head tool reviews where we compare topics like: Ergonomics, Price/Value, Speed, Power, Accessories, Durability and Performance.

Our goal is to offer you a relative comparison of similar tools so you can make a decision about which tool is best for you. We're always looking for ideas so feel free to send us a note if there's a head to head tool review you'd like to see us do next!
