Re: [Tools] What are some good cordless 18V tools?

I love my Milwaulkee tools - the M12 12v line is great and compact - I've got the Hammerdrill, impact driver, multitool, and right angle drill. The M18 Fuel hammer drill, Hackzall, and vacuum I've got are great and powerful, especially the Fuel drill.

I'd not hesitate to recommend the Milwaukee stuff - seems to be well built and reliable.

It just sucks the charger and the battery are so expensive..

The home charger is $59 and the battery (XC) is $99 with the tool being $169

The cost of batteries is hard to get around with any of the reputable brands.

I have an M18 hammer drill too. I got it with one battery, charger and carrying bag on Kijiji for $100. The guy was asking $120, which I was going to happily pay, but he handed $20 back after I we got chatting and I told him my third son was on the way.

That was over a year ago. I used it for heavily for my basement bathroom renovation. I don't have an XC battery, which I wish I did. It doesn't last long when using the hammer.

I've been keeping my eye out for a dead battery that I can rebuild.

Another nod for Milwaukee. I have an M18 Fuel hammer drill also and love it. I picked up the matching reciprocating saw as well since I needed one and already had the battery packs.
