Looking for recommendations on which cordless drill I should buy for raising and lowering my stabilizers. Appreciate any advice. Thanks.

Most of us with staabilizer jacks use this Milwaukee, but you could probably get something smaller if you're on a budget. The weaker ones sometimes don't do anything tho.

I have a Milwaukee 18V that I already had for my job. If/when it goes, I’m going to Harbor Frieght and buy a $30 cordless drill.

I have a few kits from different manufacturers but the Ryobi stuff lives in the trailer. I use the impact on 2 for the jacks.

Most any 18 volt will work fine, especially the 2 speed ones with a high speed and a lower speed with more torque. I started with a 12 volt Craftsman single speed that worked well. You really don’t need an impact. They are stabilizers, not jacks.

Impact drivers are loud. Be prepared to get dirty looks from your neighbors!

I have a 20 volt Dewalt inpact. I use it when we go camping. Never had anybody says anything to me about being loud. We always get to where we are going during the middle of the day so that is not a problem.

Cheap cordless drill from Harbor Freight, on sale. $20 +/- one battery, so I always charge it while loading out for camping. You don’t need the impact action.
