"Life is too short to buy Dewalt, or is it "friends don't let friends buy Dewalt".

I use the 18 volt roybi set which hands down gives you the most bang for the buck. Have had mine now for 3 years and still going strong on the org. batteries. I use mine pretty much for everything vary rarely do i pull out the corded tools.

I do industrial electrical work and I will take a corded tool over a battery tool any day .The other day I wanted to cut a old lead cable out of a pit . We had 2 saws and 4 dead batteries between them.When we need a battery drill we will takea drill both batteries and a charger. We also have a Burndy dieless crimper and cable cutter one is 14 volt the other is 18 voltwe take both batteries and chargers when we use them. Also we take a generator just tom charge the batteries.

Hypress welcome to the forum. [Linked Image]

I too get frustrated with dead batteries sometimes.

Usually when I see some one grab a battery drill even though they are working near power and have a bazillion holes to drill.

If you are looking for good battery operated tools you want to look at AIRCRAFT DYANAMICS in Lima Ohio.They dont have the greatest selection but they are probably the best you can buy . Sawzalls impact wrenches drills and rechargeabel lights. EXELENT EXELENT EXELENT CUSTOMER SERVICE.

When I had 4 batteries,still got caught w/my pants down w/4 dead bat. I asked a Milwaukee rep. about the lack of a charger on their radio and the reason he gave was that a lot of job sites ban radios,the three bay charger seems to work pretty good for me.

NORCAL.... the Mil rep wasn't entirely truthful. DeWalt owns the rights to onboard radio charging.
