Infographic: Brushed vs. Brushless Tools
The choice between tools with brushed motors and tools with brushless motors depends on the job application and its demands.
Motor brushes transfer power via physical contact with a spinning electromagnet. Advantages of brushed motors include peak torque and constant torque.
A microprocessor transfers power to a stationary electromagnet without making physical contact. Electromagnet advantages include efficiency, reliability and compact design.
