Anyone Else use Milwaukee Power Tools?

Just curious if anyone else uses Milwaukee Power tools. There the kind my dad has and personally I love them and will probably order some of my own in the future.

Milwaukee, Bosch and Hitachi make the best power tools.

I've been using a Ryobi 18v kit, and I like it very well.

My dad used to only get De Walt but he has got a kit just like mine now.

I use a Milwaukee Sawzall, it's a terrific hacker too.

Milwaukee is a good tool but I use De Walt most of the time. It has worked for me for years and I believe that if its not broken don't fix it. But I also won't wear blinders and always looking for new tools.

I used to work for a landscape company and we have a big Milwaukee sawzall and a 1/2 drill. Both are excellent tools that are 10+ years old and still working like brand new!

We also recently got a Ryobi adjustible speed 90degree grinder and it works like a charm too!

I wish I had only 1 brand, I have some Porter Cable stuff and love it as well as Dewalt, Makita and some Milwakee tools. All are great but I have a closet full of chargers and batteries, the problem is when I think I will thin things down to just 1 brand the thing I need is 200 in the brand I want and the other is 125 so it is tough.

bosch used to be the stuff, but not anymore.. they moved all mfg to china and now its just overpriced.. DeWalt, Festo, Milwaukee , Makita, kawasaki and Hitachi are all high quality stuff, but the old European made high quality stuff like black and decker and bosch is all made in china now a days.

i didnt think id ever say this but stay away from anything not made in Japan or USA.

who makes the tools?

Like say for Sears, who makes the tools with the Craftsman name? These tool makers sell their stuff under different names, just wonder who makes what for whom? Any help here guys/gals?

The only Milwaukee I still have and use is the large drills mainly in construction.

Ryobi makes the new stuff, don't know about the power tools Sears sold a year or so ago.

My bro in law just got Craftsman cordless kit, looks just like my Ryobi kit except it's black, and 19.2 volts. (mine is 18v)
