Safe way to run power tools off of your car ? Inverter ?

    Yes. But get a good 1000W+ inverter that goes straight to the battery.

    Or buy cordless like a normal human bean and stop posting that pic.

    >tfw you could def run M12 stuff off a car battery with an adapter
    You would need to run overly thick cables to the tool if you wanted any reach though. 12V DC is going to be a lot of amps and drop off quick unless you have like jumper cables attached to the tool.

    Why do you imagine you want to power tools from your car? What is is you want to do? BE SPECIFIC.

    I have inverters, corded tools, cordless tools and pneumatic tools. I rarely use inverters except to charge the cordless tool batteries which the small inverters do well. I use them more often during power outages to power my router and charge my notebook etc. I use car cell phone chargers hooked to spare batteries for my phones.

    Larger and small inverters work but are a hassle because the engine must be running. I own them for backup rather than regular use and consider there to be no point in buying them to run tools. I got mine used for next to nothing.

    Just buy cordless tools. They're amply effective as proven on many jobsites. There is nothing new to invent in this respect. If you have work to do have the sense to choose the most effective tools for the task. My corded tools stay in my workshops for heavy use (where the lack of battery bulk is also an advantage). I have pneumatics but haven't used them in several years despite using tools all the time (mechanic, hardcore DIYer). I even have CO2 tanks which can briefly power pneumatic tools but I use those for portable tire inflation and blowguns now and then.

      Ok , there is this rock I want to drill holes in , in the woods and I don’t do think battery powered tool will cut it. I figured that using a car powered tools would last longer than using battery powered ones

        uhm, your car runs on a battery... unless you plan to leave the car run and waste gas so the alternator provides constant power... you are still using a battery tool. you tool!

          Yes that was the plan obviously to run the car while using the drill. Figuring that a car with a full tank of gas would run longer than a cordless drill battery

            Smaller inverter and a charger for your cordless SDS with 2 batteries so you can have one on the charger would be bretty gud too. Plus you can use the batteries on other cordless tools and not rely on the car battery.

            Either way it’s going to cost a few bucks. Corded or cordless SDS from a good brand won’t be cheap. Good size tool batteries aren’t cheap. 2000W inverters aren’t cheap.

        Suitable cordless drills exist. Do some reading. Choose the drill by bit size.

        How much are you willing to spend and how many holes do you want to drill?

        BTW always include maximum detail in every original post. No one should have to ask for details.

      Psh just get an old compressor and stick it in the engine bay with a longer serpentine belt, plumb it to a 30gal tank in the trunk.

      A good cordless SDS would be so much easier.
