I have the Milwaukee impact.
Absolutely love it, very good quality and has held up (so far) to whatever I’ve thrown at it.
I also have a Milwaukee grinder/cut off. So far so good. No complaints.
I have Dewalt drill and impact driver purchased as a kit. Works well, no complaints.
I just ordered the new Milwaukee “extended reach” ratchet, have not used it yet but have full confidence that it will work as claimed and hold up well.
My tools are taken care of but are not used daily to earn a living. My opinion is based on hobbyist/shade tree home mechanic but unless something drastically changes my money will be spent on Milwaukee going forward.
Next purchase will probably be their chainsaw to carry in the Jeep, I have gas saws but the Milwaukee seems better suited for the trails as I already carry batteries for the impact, and I don’t want to carry gas/oil mix for a saw. I already also carry oil (for Jeep),in the event I cut enough to need a little for the bar, I’ve already got it.
My opinion probably shouldn’t hold much weight because my use of these tools is somewhat limited but I’m a Milwaukee guy.
Prices are not cheap but I’ve always considered “good” tools as a wise investment.
I’ve got some oil leaks on my F250 w/7.3 to work on. Purchased the extended reach ratchet for this job. I’ll update my opinion of the tool when I’ve used it. I fully expect good things.
If y’all know anything about pulling the turbo and pedestal on a 7.3, A good power ratchet that can “reach”should make the job much easier.
This is the saw that I want, and will be purchasing ASAP (funds)
I did buy the ratchet from Home Depot
I purchased the tool and batteries separately because they currently have a sale on the batteries.
I got the charger and two 3 mAh batteries for about 1/2 price.
The “kit” comes with 2 mAh battery
