johnsongrass1 Milwaukee 18V.

Been using them with upgraded 3400maH batteries most weekends and less on weekdays. I can't remember that last time I picked an air gun. It's been 6 or 7 years.

crussell85 when buying cordless tools your not so much paying for the tools your paying for the batteries. Kobalt and quality shouldn't be used in the same sentence. They are overpriced for being a house brand and the quality isn't there. If you want a long lasting powerful tool there's only one name out there and that's hilti. I know they're expensive but you will get a tool that will probably never disappoint you. You can find deals on them on eBay, plus one you buy a "set" and have a couple of batteries you can buy bare tools that will work with the same batteries. You but a quality electric tool most of the time you can find every single replacement part and they can be fixed for cheap. Also pay attention if your buying from home depot, Lowe's, etc most of the time they're not the "heavy duty" models. Might wanna check out the manufacturers website and get model numbers of what you want and compare the numbers in the store so your actually getting what you want.

If you wait until after black Friday most stores will start getting gift sets in that are cheaper. But still pay attention to model numbers

Mojo56 You'd be hard pressed to find a professional builder these days who uses corded tools... back in '94, when I built my shop, my son-in-law, who built pole buildings for a living, laughed at me when I drug out my old Craftsman 1/2 drill. His entire company had already made the switch.

I went out and bought a Milwaukee 14.4V which I still use today (with the original batteries BTW!).

A few months ago I had to retrieve an old Pontiac that I bought two states from me. I bought a Horrible Freight cordless impact... I had a coupon and it cost about $60.00. I needed to switch some tires around on the old car and drug out that new impact...it went dead after two lug nuts! I knew what I was buying... I usually avoid HF with a passion but I thought I'd get lucky just once.

Now I use that impact for what it can handle... carb adjustments... and it works well on the mixture screws!!!

GSteg How is the Kobalt impact gun working out for you? I've been meaning to try one since I've been impressed with my Kobalt air gun. It looks to be more powerful than the Craftsman C3 gun.


Battery technology has come a long way. We now have cordless guns that are POWERFUL thanks to lithium ion batteries. I have a few cordless impacts that would make most, if not all corded 1/2" guns hide in the toolbox. I use them to remove axle nuts and some crank pulley bolts, and they don't flinch at all.

I got to agree with you on that part. Corded is a lot stronger than cordless. Even my friend, who works at Home Depot told me he's not a big fan of batteries.

PathfinderDude No...smh! Thanks for double checking with me. Lol Oh boy that's gonna be a huge amount of $$$ to eat up. I guess I'm better off with Kobalt since it comes with two batteries and charger all for 260 dollars.
03-26-2012 02:41 PM
47dodge If this is the IR you are looking at did you notice for the $220 it doesn't come with a battery or charger? IR is a quality brand but when you add a battery and charger you be at the same price as other top brands.
03-26-2012 09:50 AM
PathfinderDude How about IR 19.2? Seems like a bricksh#t house gun.
03-26-2012 09:38 AM
PathfinderDude Ok I think I have come down to final decision. Since u guys say quality of brand name says it all and stepping up to pay more, I will go ahead get the Kobalt one.
