yeah I was on a Milwaukee kick a few years ago. I learned my lesson. I kept the 24V stuff strictly for the circ saw. It's nice for cutting out vinyl floors...and that's about it.Thats just because Milwaukee has yet to make a decent battery.
I made the switch over from dewalt NiCad's to lithium ion batteries and have almost every cordless dewalt tool and use them often in my work-the biggest joy is decreased charge time. I have a dual port charger and can start charging one NiCd and one lithium at the same time and the lithium is fully charged first-possibily b/c the Li batteries stop when the charge is low (doesn't run down like NiCd).
I have had two Panasonic cordless drills in the past. They worked well but both broke in the same way. Stripped gears in about a year of moderate use. These were older modles so perhaps they are more durable now.Did you run outta beer greg? :laughing:
Yeah, there are lots of threads regarding this.
Has anyone bought/used the panasonic drills (or any other tools)? They've always rated extremely well, with a lot of it having to do with their battery technology....I've just never tried 'em because....it's just weird to me, to think of "panasonic" when it comes to power tools. :blink:
