Bosch 12V Impact Driver

Bosch may not have the largest 12V line on the market, but the tools they have out for the 12V line, well let’s just say they rock.  I am a huge fan of Bosch power tools, but I think they make the most comfortable 12V tools.  For me, I think it is the highest quality 12V tool you can buy.  Well, it may come as no surprise to you, but this 12V impact driver isn’t any different and Bosch didn’t disappoint.  The PS42 should be your next buy if you are looking for a 12V line.  No, they don’t...

Milwaukee Wireless Jobsite Speaker 2891-20

Since I first heard about the Milwaukee Wireless Jobsite Speaker 2891-20, I have been wanting one so bad.  See, I am the guy who likes to jam out or at least have some background noise at all times.  I think when things are quiet and I am alone with my thoughts, I get too scared.  So when Milwaukee announced the wireless speakers, I was excited. Now before I go on I want to clarify something.  Read the title again, this is a Milwaukee Wireless Jobsite Speaker 2891-20, which means it’s just a speaker and speaker only.  There is not a radio...

Milwaukee Inspection Camera – M12 M-Spector Flex 2317

You probably know that Milwaukee Tool has a couple different inspection cameras available.  In fact we reviewed the 2314 back in 2014.  The 2314 is a great camera and for the price, it’s hard to beat.  An inspection camera is good for all most any professional tradesman.  It’s useful for plumbers, inspectors, electricians, HVAC and the list goes on.  However for a camera to be truly useful, you need a quality camera, that has a great image so you know what you are looking at and it has to be easy to move around in tight areas.  So that...

Milwaukee M12 3 Ah and 6 Ah battery

Winter is here and we know how cold it can get on the jobsite or just hanging out.  As you know Milwaukee has a ton of heated jackets to choose from.  While I like them all, my favorite is the Camo jackets.  Speaking of heated jackets, you have to use a Milwaukee M12 to power the jacket in order to produce heat.  We have been getting emails about when Milwaukee will be coming out with their 3Ah battery for longer run time for the jackets.  So I decided to create a post about this since the Milwaukee 3Ah battery...

Bosch 12V Impact – Big Power in a Little Size

If you are new to Tools in Action, you probably already know how much I love Bosch tools.  Bosch isn’t always first to market with their tools, but when they release something, they are designed nicely and you know they are designed to last.  So speaking of new tools, Bosch has two new 12V tools available.  The Bosch 12V impact Driver and the Bosch 12V impact Wrench.  Both of these tools share a lot in common so before I go into each tool, let’s cover what assets they share. The one thing I really like about the Bosch 12V...

Makita DT03 12V Impact Driver

I am not sure if you have had a chance to test drive one of the Makita 12V tools, but next time you’re at the store, pick one up.  Makita has done a great job with this line.  We had a chance to check out their 12V drill and it is one of our top picks.  Now we have the chance to check out their 12V impact driver, the Makita DT03 and this is just as impressive.  Now I know we will get some people who say it’s not the most powerful 12V tool on the market.  Yes, I understand...

Makita FD07R1 12V MAX Brushless Cordless Driver-Drill

We have worked with Makita in the past, but this is the first time we had a chance to check out their new 12V drill driver.  The Makita FD07R1 is a 3/8″ drill/driver that has a ton to offer.  Before being introduced to this drill, my go to 12v drill was the Bosch 12V.  I think both of these 12V drills leave the competitors in the dust.  I know I will get some slack for that, but let me explain.  With a 12V drill, I don’t want the biggest, baddest drill.  I don’t want all that extra weight and...
