    One of my best tools

    All I can say is. This thing Rocks.
    From the 4-inch Woofers and 1-inch Tweeters
    to it's Equalizer. The sound blows away all of the work radio's on the market today. The best part of all is you can connect your iPod to this radio and listen to all of your favorite music all day long. Commercial free.
    I give it 5 Stars!

      Got this yesterday, and put it to work today at Habitat for Humanity. I was the man due to bringing it. Pretty user friendly with great, full sound. Now, I think it's time I buy an iPod so I can rock out to my favourite tunes all day.

      You definitely need to get an Ipod Brutus. I rarley even listen to the radio anymore.

      My boss checked it out, and bought one for himself. We both run various types of milwaukee cordless tools, so we always have extra batteries to pop in there and not take up outlet space.

    Good radio

    I bought the Milwaukee cordless kit last spring, so i got this radio for my birthday last summer.
    Its been great. sounds good, had an aux input to play ipod, XM, or what ever. Runs off drill batteries. it has a 12v power plug, and even a bottle opener on it (i have yet to use either).
    the battery/ ipod compartment had a gasket and it weather proof. it has been rained on before, doesnt affect it.
    I really with it had a battery charger.

    • Pros:
    • Good sound
    • strong
    • good size
    • waether proof
    • Cons:
    • doesnt charge batteries
    • YES
