Milwaukee took a leap and entered the LDM market a while back.  I have to admit when I first heard they were entering this market, I was a little skeptical.  Not because I didn’t think Milwaukee could do it, but you have a market out there with some heavy hitters that have been in this business for a long time and have created awesome products.  Milwaukee is going up against names like Bosch, Hilti and Leica.  So how does Milwaukee stack up?

When it comes to 12V power tools, Milwaukee owns the market.  Now the one thing i can say about their M12 line is it’s not a gimmick.  These tools are not only powerful, but they are industry specific.  While most manufacturers try to build up their 12V line of tools with out of the box solutions for one tool to fit all jobs, Milwaukee takes a different approach.  If an electrician needs a certain tool that will only be used by an electrician, Milwaukee isn’t afraid to tackle the job and create a specific tool.  As you can see,...

Milwaukee Drywall Screw Gun Review – Powered y the M18 Battery

Drywall is considered to be one of the newer building materials on the market.  Even though it was developed in the early 1900’s, it wasn’t until the later half of the 1900’s that it became a common fixture intoday’s buildings.  Now looking around at any residential or commercial property, you find it unusual if you didn’t see any drywall.  While there are many reasons that the market has switched to drywall, one reason is cost.  Drywall is for the most part inexpensive, since it’s primarily rock.  Drywall is also easy to shape into 4′ x 8′ sheets, which makes...
