Do price man, The F 150 An 350 might have a cost equation before you get it to tow something down the road.

Monte Barnes says:

I personally like the makita rattle gun and drills I have been using them on and off for about 5 years been really good tools no problems with them I have been wanting to get the Milwaukee just cost to much to justify buying them

John Hamilton says:

Dhir Am says:

I bought the RIDGID brushless hammer drill & impact kit ($279) a while back and just recently used the drill to drill some 3/4″ holes through (older) studs for water lines. I used a self-feeding auger bit, new. To my surprise and disappointment, the overload/protection feature came on around 10 times for each stud, forcing me to wait and press the switch again and again to get through the studs. I bought this set precisely for its power, and now the electronic limiter is what makes it useless. I bought this also to drill through double top plates of walls and that certainly won’t work with this drill..

Can you recommend any 18v drill or kit that doesn’t stall the drill under stress? If it can’t drill through older studs and double plates I have no use for it. Been looking around and even considered the 24v Kobalt but it says it also has overload protection so I’m afraid it will do the same thing… Sigh. Any suggestions would be appreciated.

Fruit Punch Samurai says:

i love milwaukee so much

Frank Coughlin says:

You do an excellent job at this. Well done.

Larson Fam says:

Can you please stop shilling the kobalt crap? it’s cringey, and they aren’t worth anything more then any other low price Chinese made homeowner tool, the only difference is they are more expensive, slung to the wingtip Lowes crowd. Everything else was alright, but you really need to get off of Lowes tit.

Alex Sabic says:

Bosch can be dad of all those tools

Gary Scoville says:

What happen to a review of Dewalt cordless tools? That’s the only cordless tools I have used for the last 30+ years.

A D A M M A J O R says:

Hey there! I use a lot of hand tools. Almost on a daily basis. I own currently a Kobalt 1/2 air impact wrench and a harbor freight 3/8s air ratchet. Would power tools be better? I only have a 2 gallon tank too.

Otto Schless says:

This preference comes down to the individual. I am sure their is a wide range of preferences by users for different reasons. You are basically telling us your preference with maybe some incentive. I am a tradesman and i will only use AEG tools for my trade.

Joe Riemer says:

You sound exactly like John Davis from Motor Week. Like the reviews, but your voice and cadence drive me crazy!
