Am I the only one on here who is constantly browsing the selection of various cordless tools by milwaukee?

I'm slowly looking to upgrade and update some of my tools and add some various power tools to the mix. Specifically the cordless brushless power sockets & the high torque impacts. It seems like milwaukee makes some of the best offerings out there and widest power tool selections maybe other than Ryobi.

Time to win the lottery

I have both 18V Power Plus & M12/M18 cordless Milwaukee tools, I even have a heated M12 hoodie to wear under my Carhartt jacket in case it ever gets REALLY cold here (not likely).

Most of the M12 line is drool worthy!

I have many Milwaukee M18 Fuel power tools along with a few outdoor power tools. They are all top notch.

But I cannot get 100% of what I want with Milwaukee.

I wanted a 10" cordless chain saw and got a Ryobi as Milwaukee only had an expensive 16" cordless chain saw. I have two 20" gas chain saws so I did not want a 16".

Makita has a wide selection of power tools as well.

Over 200 cordless tools.

Milwaukee makes excellent tools. I own several.

But I’m a Makita fan...

Yes, I'm a Milwaukee tools fan.

Most recent toys for garage are 'M18 Fuel' 1/2" & 3/8" impact combination pack. They're nice!

Got this 3/8 “ M12 for Christmas. It’s the older version, cheaper and smaller ( which I wanted) than the Fuel.There’s something for everyone! laugh

I've been running Bosch for a while but I'm seriously considering making the switch over to Milwaukee. Their drills are very nice, and they make a battery powered fish tape which seems like it'd be the greatest tool I ever bought.

I might just get the fish tape, though, my Bosch drills still run just fine. No need to replace good tools.

M12 is awesome, my gen 2 fuel impact got left in the rain with a battery in it a few weeks ago and is toast.

That impact was as strong as a 18/20v even with 2AH batteries, I used it to drive spade bits numerous times. It fits in the palm of my hand without a bit in it.

I'm definitely replacing it but I'm not sure if I should get the hydraulic impact or wait for the gen 3 conventional. I've been using a cheap 2016 dewalt 20v impact and it's too big and seems to heat up quickly and shoot sparks from the motor with a 3AH battery.

I have some older Dewalt, but added a number of various Milwaukee M12/M18 products over recent years. They aren't cheap, but I've had very good performance with no failures and if so, I have a service center close by.

Snagglefoot - I've got that same ratchet. It's awesome. I liked it so much, I bought the 1/4" drive one, too!

I have that one too. I probably use it more with the 1/4" drive adapter on it. One of my favorite tools!

I also have the M12 impact driver but I prefer my Dewalt 20v. I don't think it weighs any more, and it just feels better balanced and can stand up on it's own battery.

Right there. If it works even half as well as Milwaukee says it does it'd be a huge relief for my least favorite thing.
