I am waiting for some more info on these tools also.hatchet said:Milwaukee has some new ones coming out - 24v with the weight of the current 18v's. Supposed to be longer lasting and charge quicker .. and I say supposed to be as I haven't seen any reviews on them yet.

I just saw the big red Milwaukee Experience semi at my distributor so I stopped and they had the new v28 lithium ion tools. I got my hands on the drill, sawsall and circle saw. These tools are powerful and beat the yellow tools head to head in cutting and drilling and they never stopped. You had to see it to believe it. they have a website www.v28power.com where test results are shown. I placed an order and can’t wait for them to arrive. Cole, they have some tool reviews on the site too. :Thumbs:Cole_21 said:I am waiting for some more info on these tools also.
You get funniest comment of the year award!Mike Finley said:Everybody should buy a extra battery so they have at least 2. What do you do when your nailer goes through a stick of nails, throw it on the deck and curse at it for running out of nails so fast? :cheesygri
Heres a new tool that just came out in january at first I thought it was just a weekend warrior tool but now I think it my come in usefull for custom jobs. Its called a "Triton 18v plunge drill" it has a spring loaded base to keep your bit perpendicular to the work surface it can be used as a hammer drill to.proftooler said:Anybody new of any cordless tools that actually have any power or any runtime.?

You're right christoph. A lot of contractors here are going to laugh at you. You don't say what you do or what your business is but look through the older Tools threads about cordless drills, etc. B&D just doesn't stand the test of time when it comes to what a lot of us here do.christoph said:You're all probably going to laugh at me, but I use a Black and Decker 24v Drill. I like it, it lasts long, and I think the torque is good. I've been working in the snow and mud with it, and so far it hasn't let me down.
Teetor,Teetorbilt said:I've had the Panasonic drill/driver for about 6 mos. now. Not a long haul test but it is used almost daily, so far no problems. The kit comes with 2 batteries and I dare you to wear them both out in a day. I got about 6hrs. drilling and driving 1/4" Tapcons during the last hurricanes and we were really humping it.
