The consensus on Denali power tools is that they are solid enough entry-level tools, but there are likely limits to what you can accomplish with them. That much was made clear by a round of testing at BobVila.com. The site sampled several Denali products for its 2022 breakdown and found some didn’t quite hold up when used on more heavy-duty jobs. For example, Denali’s 12″ Tungsten Carbide saw blade performed well when cutting most woods but struggled when used on composite materials commonly used in constructing decks.
In at least one head-to-head showdown between a Denali power drill and a competitor, its middle-of-the-road quality was apparent compared to even low-end rivals. Unsurprisingly, the Denali drill didn’t hold a candle to more heavy-duty brands like Milwaukee and DeWalt or Walmart’s Hart line of power tools.
Even still, Denali power tools and devices remain well-reviewed on Amazon, with several of their products earning an impressive 4.5-star rating from buyers. And among their reviews, you’ll find no shortage of comments raving about the quality of Denali products vs. their price. So even as Denali power tools may not pack quite the punch as some made by higher-end manufacturers, everyday DIY-ers have seemingly been happy with their purchases. Even still, anyone undertaking a big-time home improvement project may want to shell out a few extra bucks for products made by the power tool big boys.
