I am all red now, I looked at those nailers, but with the way my heath is lately, No point, I do have scads of their saws and drills, the weed trimmer would cut a tree I bet, Can't justify the new mower, too much and too heavy. blower is handy as hell, blow off the steps, walk if light snow. The 9 amp battery will last a long time.I have mostly DeWalt. Been happy with the performance and battery life. I say mostly because I did get a Milwaukee framing nailer. The DeWalt nailers have an annoying spin-up time when you press the trigger. This is due to using a centrifugal system. The Milwaukee uses a closed pressurized nitrogen system. It fires instantly upon pressing the trigger.
Way back I use to buy cheap, sears, or what ever , and some blue stuff, snap on 3/8" impact, but its all gone, one charger for everything now.I have one battery that came with the first drill, still works and has to be about 20 yrs old.
the old snap on impact still works a bit , but snaps on battery busted.
I like small and compact these days , I use cordless drivers most of the time now.
But they are not the best when fixing watches.
There are 3 big Milwaukee dealers in town, and they seem to be dropping the others.
Maybe its the margins?
PS on the sears , when I had some of that , they seem make a point to make stuff that would not work with any others , and then they would change tools and old battery's would not work with the new crap. These days there is no more Sears in Canada.
Son uses yellow stuff, in the trades, I find it bulky.
But he has a hi end water jet, Now that is neat. makes a CMT plasma cutter old school.
