Milwaukee Impact Wrench 2861-22

What, Milwaukee has another impact wrench on the market.  Who would have thought?  Well, leave it to Milwaukee to not stand still.  Even though they have a couple different M18 impact wrenches on the market, they wanted to one up themselves.  Now they have an M18 Impact Wrench that is Fuel, which means it’s brushless.  Is this their first?  No, but they did manage to add a twist to this tool. The Milwaukee impact wrench model 2961 will surprise you when you pick it up.  The tools are lighter and smaller than their older model.  In fact, Milwaukee was...

Ridgid Dual Battery Charger – AC840094

Well, it’s finally here, the Ridgid dual port charger.  OK, I should say the sequential dual port charger.  For those who are wondering, sequential means the charge will charge one battery at a time.  I know some people will be disappointed by this, but most chargers are set up this way for a couple of reasons.  It gets tricky when you try to charge more than one battery at a time.  You will either slow down you charging time or have to have a much bigger charger.  With this charger, it’s first come, first serve.  So which ever battery...

Ryobi 18V Hammer Drill Model P1813

Well, it’s finally here, a Ryobi cordless drill.  Okay, yes they have had a cordless drill out for a long time, but this one is a little different.  If you have used a Ryobi drill in the past, you know they are great drills, but they do lack the feel and power of a tough drill.  The new Ryobi Hammer drill 18V model P1813 now fills the gap.  While Ryobi is designed for the homeowner, I do know a lot of small contractors who use Ryobi tools for a variety of reasons.  I always hear guys give different reasons...

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...

Hilti SID 4-A22 Impact Driver

About four years ago we reviewed the Hilti SID 18-A Cordless Impact Driver.  Since then, this has been my go to driver, I love it.  So when Hilti said they have another impact driver in the 22V line, I knew it was something I wanted to try out.  Now I have to admit, I am a huge Hilti fan.  Not because they pay us, but it has been one of those tools that have never let me down.  I am not saying they don’t break or they don’t have defective tools, but I rarely every talk to someone who said...

Ryobi currently has a palm router on the market that runs on their 18V platform.  If you check it out at Home Depot, people love the router and give it high praise.  So if you think that is a good palm router, you have to check out their updated palm router model P601.  This is a huge step up. When I say it’s a big step up, this palm router feels great, feels like a quality router and has some great features to it.  Now,  you’re not going to use this router to create a house since it’s cordless,...

Ryobi 18V Belt Sander Model P450

This tool is the exact reason why I love Ryobi and always recommend their line of products to Homeowners.  Well, it’s not just because they have a cordless belt sander on the market, but because of their line-up of 18V tools.  Who else on the market has such a wide range of cordless power tools on the market?  Sure there are companies who have a ton of SKU’s on the market, but if you look at Ryobi array of tools, no one beats them.  Couple that with who they are, Quality tools at reasonable prices and no other manufacturer...
