Greenlee has been the industry leader in electrician’s knockout tools and accessories for many years and until a few years ago remained moderately unchallenged. In the last few years however hole making has opened up to several new players and techniques that are testing their supremacy in this category. Several competitors, most notably Maxis, GB & Current Tool 162PM ($899) all very similar in operation, have hit the market with some slightly less expensive mechanical solutions that adapt to your 18V drill.
