    Milwaukee has a 5 year warranty and I’ve had to use it and they paid shipping both ways and it was only about 7 days from the time I shipped it to the time is was back and I received brand new tool. Not sure about the Bosch warranty but tough to beat the Milwaukee warranty.

    hilti is the best on the market for what they make, and way more expensive than everything else...
    my buddy is an electrican and has an old (8-10 years old) 14.4v 1/4" impact driver that is close to if not better than my new 18v millwaukee brushless impact driver
    it will drive 1/2" lags like theyre a #8 screw, but it was close to $500 and my milwaukee around $200

    What Shaun said above. Can’t go wrong with Makita, mine worked hard for 10years. Tough to change platforms if you need more than a couple tools. But I just switched to Milwaukee and I’m very happy with it. They have some tools for mechanical contractors that others don’t is why I switched. They all are coming out with new tools like crazy now. Battery tech is getting exciting!

    i think the Li battery technology was still new when i priced that which is why it was close to $500, they also dont offer that model anymore, and it looks like the tools have been cheapened up a bit?

    The ones I was looking at are made in China but the materials used are of the highest quality from what I've read.

    I've watch a couple reviews videos of that thing.
    It's a badass for sure.

    I agree, I have three big air wrenches in the shop, and this thing will out do them all. I did not believe it until I decided to spend the money on it. And I take it with me without air. ( well worth the money! )

    Gary, one of the things I looked for when buying my Makita stuff a couple of years ago was the battery charging. I wanted a quick charger that could charge two batteries at once.

    Also, I wanted the cases that are stackable and connect for easy transport. I have some Festo stuff with cases, which Makita cases were compatible with. It made sense for me to go with Makita.

    I've always loved the Milwaukee also, but for the price, the Makita packages fit me better.

    The best part after getting your initial setup with batteries/charger, you can add tool only to your lineup for a lot cheaper than with batteries.

    So this summer I have spent a butt load of money on Milwaukee tools as has my neighbor. I now have 4 of the 9.0 batteries and my neighbor got 2 of the 12.0 batteries and let me tell you about those batteries. He was cutting up some small branches with his sawzall with the 12.0 and the saw felt like it was a corded saw. I can use one 9.0 and normally drill out an entire house on one battery and that is drilling holes from 1.5 inches to over 4 inches.

    Yes but it’s actually the super hawg . I bought it when Home Depot had them on close out and the only time we run the generator now is if we have to air test or I Foyt charge the batteries at home. I have a 6 way charger so by morning they are all ready for the day

    Watch the deals or check out cpomilwaukee.com

    I don’t remember what specials are going on right now but if I don’t buy from my wholesaler I only buy when I get free stuff. This summer I bought the string trimmer as I got a free tool and went with the hedge trimmer
