Favorite brand of power tools?

Experiences? Good or bad?

 

We've always ran DeWalt and I just picked up one of their new 20v Tools, and i've just fallen in love with it. Looking for things to do with it.

I was looking at Milwaukee but I figured i'd stay with what I know and what to expect.

 

Love to here what others run

I'm interested in this, at work I use Milwaukee dewalt and Makita. But I've been looking at this rigid set at home depot for home its like 500 bucks and has everything. Home doesn't require the ruggedness of my job.

 

 

Makita makes the best angle grinders IMO Milwaukee is best cordless drills and dewalt makes a good corded drill

We bought a Rigid table saw from Home Depot for a wicked deal and we love it.... we don't put it through the paces of a construction site, but its great for around the farm.

Mikwaukee is my personal favorite. The tools themselves are tougher than others and they always seem quicker to use. Batteries are okay but bosch has the best batteries out there. Dewalt is okay in pretty much every category but dollar for dollar I still find Milwaukee a better tool.

 

For garage use and dollar for dollar value rigid is the best. about 7 years ago I used a set for work and was impressed that a relatively cheaper tool set could perform so well. Unless they have gotten cheaper in recent years they may be a good budget brand.

 

This is coming from a guy who has worn out more tools than an average guy will ever use.

Milwaukee tools seem to have the best ratings.out there for reliability and performance, a very god drill that's reasonably price that I use is a Hitachi drill; lithium ion 18v, and for its size, the torque on the monster is incredible! Comparable to higher voltage nicads.

I was in the construction buisness for 15 years and the cordless tools we always used were dewalt and they never failed us and we beat the crap out of them. We tried bosch and had alot of problems with them and there fullsize table saw as well. Recently we got the makita cordless drill and impact driver set and love it. Its very durable and powerful, it is a little expensive though. I personally at home have a 36 volt dewalt cordless kit (drill, circular saw, sawzall, and light) and love it, talk about power and it will last for days on a single charge. I also have a rigid impact driver and Im very impressed it feels solid and lasts pretty long, if you dont have an impact driver you need to get one they are awesome.

Other than my drill, the other stuff I have is corded. A Milwaukee Sawzall, Skil worm drive circular saw, Ryobi angle grinder and table saw, and Snap-on air tools, MG725 impact, and a Snap-on die grinder. The impact is a torque monster. But I digress.

 

I don't have use for many cordless tools.

Last Xmas I got the dewalt 20v lithium ion drill/impact kit. This thing is a beast. Battery lasts much longer than previous batteries I have used. They are much lighter also.

Ryan have you tried the impact on wheel lugs? Swapping the winter wheels with a four way is overrated. I've had great luck with dewalt in the past. Had makita long ago when the handles/batteries were long and awkward. This may have changed. I also work with a bunch of cordless tools at work, but they all drive forklifts :)

We have the larger 1/2" "High Torque" and they come in the 20v too, and this thing has balls. For me, the smaller impact has taken off lug nuts, but the High Torque model will take them off 10/10.
