Cordless tool comparison

Recommended Posts

I just can’t decide if the price difference reflects performance...

I dunno.... looks like Ryobi might Come up a bit short.

Think I’ll stick with DeWalt and Milwaukee.😎

I agree with Lorenzo's rankings but would like to give "DeWalt" a chance to come up in the rankings. Should never get complacent.😀

I was thinking the same thing, I’ve gone Milwaukee over and over, always had excellent performance and outstanding operating time no matter how down and dirty the task, but I sure would give de Walt a good go, looks like they really put their best uh...foot ..... forward this time. 

I will say though it’s amazing what you can do with a Milwaukee considering it’s very compact size, they are surprisingly strong

All jokes aside,    I started with Makita  back in the 80's and we thought we had it made.

Switching from a corded drill for things like sheet metal screws, self tapping etc...

Very few options at that time for cordless stuff but what I had I thought was great at the time.

Then as time went on and more and more tools became available I switched to DeWalt.  Everyone had them, all trades on a job sight had the same stuff.

Then the other manufactures had to get with the program and come up with better stuff to gain a piece of the market so the battery voltage wars began.

It has been my experience that the Milwaukee battery has surpassed the DeWalt so as my DeWalt stuff wore out I replaced everything with Milwaukee .

It was a good decision in my opinion .

They have switched from Dewalt to Milwaukee at work. Have to admit those red batteries are impressive.

Just remember none of them are much use when the batteries get cantankerous. 

And if a guy gets desperate, a Ryobi is probably going to be better than doing it by hand. Close your eyes, might not even know the difference.....

The cheapest tools on the shelf get used less so, less wear and tear....

True, but a lot of them were pretty sloppy right out of the box.

I’m having a tough time deciding if those are jeans, or painted-on jeans. Let me study it more and I’ll get back with my decision.🤪
