Honestly I need the best tool available regardless of brand. No one brand makes the best or all the tools I need. Go with the best deal or what is available in your area.

Re: Your Brand Of Choice Of Battery Powered Tools


Makita for me, long term use the Makita tools and batteries hold up the best. Ergonomically I find Makita tools are the best, trigger feel and control Makita again. I also have a bunch of Milwaukee fuel but not that impressed with the battery run time (5.0), the ergos and balance like on the Fuel 6 1/2" circ saw has terrible balance and ergos vs the Makita version, and had several Milwaukee switches go bad. Glorified Ryobis now under TTI ownership.

Currently, I am Makita all the way. Love their stuff. But I am considering branching out for cordless trim guns because reviews on the Makita brad nailer and finish nailer are mediocre at best. Needless to say, that really chaps me because as good as Makita is, they need to step it up for their trim guns and redesign them badly

That one for redesigned so it's technically a second gen, correct? I'd like them to do the same for the brad gun and finish gun. Then make a really ergonomic framer like the Milwaukee

Yes. I had 2 of the first gen 23ga and Makita changed them for 2 of the 2nd gen guns. I agree their guns need to be scraped and redesigned.

Quite the mix here. Oh chit guess I’d better watch it. Yellow blue red but definitely orange on guns. Oh and a couple of old black ones. Really better watch it now

Re: Your Brand Of Choice Of Battery Powered Tools


Who has the best nailers? Iím all makita, but read bad reviews on their nailers. 23ga is nice though. One of my guys has a Milwaukee and the 18ga is nice but havenít tried the 15 or 16ga

I bought a ryobi 18 and 16 because they were so cheap, the 18 is fine but the 16 has a hard time sinking 2-1/2

Hoping makita will come up with something so I donít have to have another battery setup.

I'm facing the same conundrum. I run Makita but have been looking hard at the Ryobi Airstrikes.

Yup, my thoughts are the same. The price justifies it and the little Ryobi cordless vac may be something I would consider once I have the batteries.

If you want a nailer that works forget cryobi. Shoot a few framing nails proud into an lvl or finish nails into oak proud. Save yourself headaches & get paslode. Few drops of oil easily cleaned & never look back. Buy cheap suffer with cheap unless h/o brand is your bag

Re: Your Brand Of Choice Of Battery Powered Tools


A lot of guys have never framed with LVLs, or trimmed in oak. I know I haven't.

For quick repairs, or small remodels, the Ryobi stuff gets good feedback. Especially for the price.
