Yeah, I mean a $600 14.4V Festool is probably a good machine, but I'll never find out.

Well, it IS a "sig" now and it is FAR from the first time I've said something
"off the cuff" and had someone adopt it...

Well I blew up the first miluakee in less than two months. It was a combo of the shitty harbor frieght notcher and me putting too much pressure on it. Now it gets real hot and makes a loud noise when operated. Luckily its within Homo Depots warranty period so I took it back and got another. Ill try to treat this one better as Im confident it wasnt the manufacterers fault the first one failed. It has nearly broken my wrist a few times when I wasnt paying close enough attention.

i use to work for home depot in the tool department and let me tell Milwaukee tools are the best but your are always going to have bad ones with any company!!!! The night crew had a Milwaukee 18v drill w/hammer and they beat the living piss out , like dropping 15 feet off the ground to a concrete floor ,throwing it around,and just out right doing every thing your not suppose to do to a drill!!!!!! They didn't care it was not theirs so there was no point to take care of it because they could always just get a new one!!! I had a Dewalt 18v drill and i bent the hell out of the jaws with my bare hands because it would not hold the drill bit i was using and had to return it!!!! I have a ryobi to , i have the 12v,9.6v,14.4v versions and they both didn't last to long but with the new battery that came out ,they run alot longer but just don't have the power i need for drilling steel and i kno0w i should be using a corded drill for metal but i do have a corded Milwaukee drill for that reason but its nice just not to run a cord when the job is light!!!!

I've been using the same Makita 12v cordless drill for the last seven years, since 2002. I've got three batteries for it, all ni-cads, and I usually have one battery in the drill, one in the Makita flashlight I've got, and one in the charger. After I use them up in the drill, I throw the battery into the flashlight to take it down to zero. Then throw it back on the charger. As long as you discharge ni-cads completely, they will last pretty much forever. And the nice thing about it all is that if I ever need parts, Home Depot can get whatever I need. I replaced the housing on the drill after I accidently dropped the drill from the top of a bus and snapped it in two.
