I say I'm brand agnostic but there are a lot of yellow DeWalt tools around my garage. Corded and cord less.

I like Porter Cable or Makita tools, corded or cordless. Only because I've had good experiences with them. Dewalt tools aren't hateful either...I have a few.

I try to stick with the same battery on whatever brands I purchase. I like the 18 -20 v lithium batteries. I have even modified the pins on couple of older ones ( thanks - You Tube) to allow them to charge in different chargers.

I bought a couple of "Cry Once, Forever Tools", or thought they would be. My favorite Milwaukee drill has an obsolete battery. As do the older Porter Cable cordless tools.



Fool me once, fool me twice - I'm punted on "really good tools" and have gone Ryobi. Good enough and there's a Direct Tools Outlet store in town so I can get killer deals on refurbs.


Just for giggles, I tossed an IKEA 14.4V drill/driver in the RV. That thing's been pretty handy as a cordless screwdriver.

I still don't own any cordless tools. I keep saying that I'm going to research them and that's about as far as it goes.

I have a cordless TT. Runs off a battery that's charged by solar. I also have a driver and drill that are cordless. Both have some advantages.

After buying my 34G I went to Harbor Freight and spent maybe $200 on cheep everything and I leave it all in the RV. Honestly, none of the tools have broken and I fix all kinds of stuff on the road. I bought a cordless drill, drill bits, Pittsburgh cheep 200 piece tool set, extension cords, rechargeable lights, battery charger, jumper cables, tie wraps, a saw, wire, tape, deep sockets, air compressor, a multimeter and a tool box to keep it in. I keep it all in the basement in the back. If it all gets stolen some day Iíll just go buy the same stuff again. At home I have far better tools. Works for me.

About ten years ago I needed about a dozen holes drilled in some concrete. I was facing the decision of renting a drill motor for $60 or buying a HF for $40 after coupons. I figure even if I burn one up I'll be ahead.

I still use it occasionally.

On the other hand a wood worker I know tried their miter saw and it couldn't repeat a cut. About a 1/8th wobble in the blade.

Their drill presses aren't any better.

I like the Ryobi 18 volt as they have so many different tools that all use the same battery. They are reasonably priced and Home Depot has perodic sales to let you "stock up" on batteries. I'm retired so I'm an occasional user and these have held up fine for me.
