Too gimmicky..........stick with a good brand name such as Dewalt, Makita, Milwalkee, Black & Decker Industrial.

For $120 you could buy a nice drill from one of the above companies and have money left over. I love my Dewalt 18 volt.

Just my $.02 (I was a tool distributor for 13 years, Mac Tools)

First time I saw that thing, I imagined all of the places it wouldn't fit into. Milwaukee drill batteries can be inserted from the front or rear of the grip, for cases where there's not enough room to get it with the battery in the normal position. They will usually stand up on the battery in the normal position (provided there's not a really long bit in it) but may not with the V28 and V18 batteries being a lot lighter in weight.

What? No Porter cable? PC great tools, Bosch, and yes Milwaukee! My sanders, planer are DeWalt but I do not have much else. Didn't we have a tool thread? Favorite tools; Hinge Butt Template kit Porter Cable, Biscuit Joiner Porter Cable, Drop Foot Circular Saw Milwalkee, any Sawsall but mine is a Porter Cable and my Lulu(5 in 1 Painters Tool)! Had time to kill!:o Too gimmicky..........stick with a good brand name such as Dewalt, Makita, Milwalkee, Black & Decker Industrial.

I just ordered the V-28 Milwaukee Cordless kit. I am pumped! I may not use it but it is cool to have none the less. No it ain't 36V but 28 is good enough for me. Quality appears to be awesome! We shall see!:D

I think just a high quality drill is in order.

I just ordered another old tech 12V battery for my old B&D drill that I love and use all the time!

I do like that bag of tools though Bob!

After using my 18v Dewalt for years, and a 14v before that, I"m starting to move to lighter tools. Recently added this Litheon10v and absolutely love it!

If I need more power, typically I grab my trusty variable speed 1/2" corded drill, unless it's only a couple holes/screws.

At the end of the day, it's nice to have the lighter tools. Of course - I have been getting older lately :rolleyes:

I agree... The person who invented this should have sold his patent to one of the large tool manufacturers... Of course isn't the as seen on tv a way for the broke man to actually make some $$ they take your idea, manufacture it, market it, and then give you like 20% of the profit (if that much)..

I received my Milwaukee 28v Lith Ion kit yesterday. WOW! Circular saw cuts like a champ. Hammer drill drills so fast you go back in time! I have not used the Sawzall but it is a Sawzall what would you expect? I will use the Impact 325 FT PNDS TORQUE tomorrow! That thing is bad and I can take it to the track! So far all is smooth as silk, powerful as corded and run forever! I think I will head out to the woods and build a tree fort, or as she calls it a really nice "DOG HOUSE!"

Milwaukee has a little 2.4V driver that is slow but fairly torquie (meaning, nice for small things with some screws that need removing). The people in engineering at Milwaukee Tool call it "The Drilldo".

Hoosier- what's the little red thing just to the right of the hammerdrill/driver?

Hoosier Bob

That is actually pretty cool. It is the belt tool clip for the hammer drill. The "T" on top releases the tool. So far unless I have a tool belt on it appears the pants would hit the floor! The drill is amazing! I have an S-Load of tools (another hobby I cannot afford) and these things are amazing! Pure precision and functionality while being cordless. Being a cheapskate I went reconditioned for $475 delivered plus the $122 for the new impact wrench. All still come with a five year wrty!:D
PS I may have some really nice crap for sale on Ebay!:D Hoosier- what's the little red thing just to the right of the hammerdrill/driver?

I think I mentioned it before but I know a senior project engineer at Milwaukee and I bought an 18V Hammer Drill through him before the 28V came out. There were two 2x12's leaning up against the wall next to the engineering building when I picked it up, each with 3 rows of holes, looking like their 2-9/16" self-feed bit size. I had some time to kill so I counted the holes- 66 per board. I asked him about them when he came out and they did them one hole after another, no stopping, one battery per board.

They may be called "The Milwaukee Rocket", but not by the engineering dept.

You made a good choice. Our company sells all of the aforementioned tools. The 28 volt Milwaukee is the biggest seller so far. Milwakee also has 18V lithium ion tools now. 36 volt lithium ion tools are just to pricy for most contractors, when the mfgrs realize this the prices will come down. anyone need info or a deal let me know.

Hey HB..
Don't you wonder why they call them Milwaukee and not Czech Republic....:confused:
J/K....;)


As a side note. I saw Milwaukee has a drill very similar in intentions as what Milk originally started this with. The exception is the CHUCK is REMOVABLE with a quick connect and the philips bit is under the chuck.

In the smaller impactors up thru 18 volt, the larger impact wrenches Dewalt offers a 36 volt li-ion

I'm done with 18s and up (as far as drills and drivers go that is).... Do they both have 9v, 12v, & 14v impact drivers....?

I did not post a pic of this but I used it this morning to change Lisa's flat! This thing works as good as my air impact! Battery is still full and I have been switching it between tools.
