My 5 favorite, of my everyday cordless! πŸ‘Š . Pictured are my m18 Hole Hawg, gen-3 Fuel impact and hammer drill, the Surge and the m12 band saw. . Other than the band saw, these happen to also be, along with a couple of others, my most-used. . There are so many, it's truly almost impossible to pick out just 5. Love my m18 Deep-Cut, my Super Hawg, Fuel Sawzall, most of my Red LED lights... . So, what are a couple of your cordless favorites - of whatever brand?? . . . . .

So, my $299 Milwaukee Fuel 3-tool Packout Combo came today! . Big shoutout to @tough_tool_reviews for the heads-up on this one-day only "deal of the day" Home Depot special! πŸ‘Š . I do get the HD daily deal emails - but between sometimes missing them because they're buried in all the other deals and spam, and not always faithfully looking for them everyday - where they're often things I'd have no interest in, like blinds or something - I may otherwise have missed out on this... . This is actually my 3rd order of this set. At $399, this was a great deal for all that you get, when it 1st showed in late October. I've been absolutely loving these gen-3's - and especially the drill - since, as you all know. . When it showed up with the added bonus of a 5.0 batt / rapid charger starter kit as a Pro deal-of-the-week a few weeks back - despite really having no need for yet another 5.0 - I of course did the work to swap for that. Figured I'd possibly trade off the starter kit to someone I run into on the job, at some point. . So, I'll end up returning the starter kit with this one, getting $100 back - that I'll end up just spending on some other Red tool, of course! Yes, the starter kit is like $189, but I have plenty of batts, as well as the Rapid Charge Station... . So, anybody else get in on this crazy-amazing deal?? . . . . .

Afternoon of cutting in LED wafers, both 3" and 4". . Using mostly the gen-3 hammer drill, though switched to the Hawg whenever I ran into something, for the added control. A lot of the partitions in this house were moved, so there were a lot of spots in the ceiling that were patched in, and some oddly. Catch the edge of some piece of lumber wrong, that gen-3 at 2,000 rpm or whatever wants to away from you right quick! . My 2nd hole saw arbor has a longer spade in it for a pilot bit, for with the deeper TCT hole saws. Thinking I might want to get a 3rd one, not have to change each time I go from 3" to 4". Doesn't take but a few seconds to change the saw, but still... . . . . .

Where I've got my batteries all inside and have been going through them, tried to come up with something cool for a pic of all of them. This is as close as I got - a mountain of my m18 4 & 5.0's! I'm admittedly not very creative.... πŸ™„πŸ˜„πŸ‘Š . . . . .

My Milwaukee cordless lighting collection, as it stood a couple months back. I've since added a 2nd m12 Rover Flood, and also the USB Rover. πŸ‘Š . You can try to convince me otherwise, but I haven't seen anyone that comes close to Milwaukee in the cordless work lighting arena. I chose Red right when they started coming out with the brushless stuff - for that, as well as that they always covered the needs of electricians and plumbers as well as any brand, power tool-wise. Better than anyone, really. That they happened to end up being the brand currently killing it on lighting is just a total bonus! . My current go-to's out of these are the Rover Floods, by far. Those 3000-lumen m18 ones at upper right are what I use in most interior spaces - 1 usually being enough in most rooms, though I often run them in tandem. The 1000-lumen m12 model is ideal up in attics, clamped to framing, and also small enough to drag into tight crawlspaces comfortably. . That 5400-lumen Rocket Dual-Pack got a lot of use before I grabbed those Rovers on HD deals, though I do still think of that style as more of a painter's or taper's light, personally. . The 9000-lumen is awesome for general lighting - but I find I really prefer direct, non-diffused task lighting in almost all instances, myself. I'm more likely to set it up for other trades to have light in an area where I've got the power out, though I do also like it for when I'm packing up the truck after dark. . What's your go-to work light, Red or otherwise? . . . . .

My Milwaukee drill and screw gun collection, as it stood last summer. . Thanks to hitting a couple great deals on combo kits, I've since added the newest Fuel m12 and m18 hammer drills! πŸ‘Š . The m18 gen-3 drill is an unbelievable beast, as many of you saw in my popular video with the big, aggressive Greenlee 3" self-feed bit - blistering through 2x framing in like 3 seconds - from a couple months back. I really would like to see an upgrade to what is still my favorite, the m18 Hole Hawg - a superb tool, but a model that's at least 4 years old now... . Would I love to sample the newest large right-angle offerings from @dewalttough and @makitatools - heck yes! But, these Red tools are getting it done for me, so I can't really justify purchasing either. Not that that's ever stopped me... . Anybody that's currently rockin' a different brand of large cordless drill, I'd love to hear your thoughts on it... . . . . .

My collection of Milwaukee cordless saws, as it stood mid-summer, after getting lucky on the 75%-off 10" miter HD clearance deal. πŸ‘Š . I've since added the 2 band saws - the m12 and the m18 Fuel Deep-Cut - as well as upgrading my m18 Hackzall to the new Fuel model. . I look at both of those current HD saw free-12.0 deals every time I'm in there, but those batteries just seem crazy-huge to me - plus, I'm more than satisfied with both my Fuel Sawzall, and my Makita X2 saws... . If anything, I may go for the table saw. Anyone got one, and/or an opinion on it?? . . . . .

My Milwaukee impact driver / wrench collection, as it sat early summer of last year. πŸ‘Š . My 1st post to garner 700+ likes. . I've since added a couple, and traded away one of the Surges. Barring running into some crazy-good clearance deal, next addition I see is one of the m12 stubby impact wrenches, which would see a lot of use on my vehicles. I'll probably wait for a free battery deal on that though... . So, what's your impact driver preference - Surge (hydraulic) or standard? . . . . .

My Milwaukee M18 Super Hawg Kit, the day it arrived. . Fantastic drill - there isn't much that'll stop her. That power comes with a price though - she is big and bulky. . At roughly twice the weight of the m18 Hole Hawg, she is no joy to drill with overhead. No way you're going to one-hand this puppy, as can easily be done with the smaller one, when necessary. . As I do mostly rewires and renos, it's a rare hole that can't be accomplished by one of my other stellar m18 drills, and thus she only comes out on occasion. As little as I do need her, I could have gotten by with just using one of my large corded when necessary, but where's the fun in that?!! πŸ‘Š . . . . . plumber

It doesn't stay looking this way for long, but today's initial setup. πŸ‘Š . Ended up working today, to try to catch up some, where I had the flu pretty bad last week. When you work for yourself, any day is a work day, if need be - no big deal. Wife was happy to stay home and watch a couple movies. . Just blocking for my device boxes, my Fuel 6-1/2" circ is plenty, but this Fuel 10" sliding miter is so dang light, I brought it along for the heck of it. I did end up heading off studs in a few areas, so I could get switch boxes exactly where the customer wanted, so was happy to have it with me. . At home, I do prefer my Makita 36v - but it is no real joy to lug around, and wouldn't even have considered bringing it for just this. As light as the m18 is, I see bringing it along becoming more of a thing with me... . Happy 2019 to all!! . . . . .

Slapping new alternator upgrade into one of my OBS Fords late this afternoon, with a little help from my Red friends! πŸ‘Š . I'm not kidding, with all my raving about how great these 1000-lumen m12 Rovers are. Wasn't all that long ago, that I'd have been dragging out some silly corded trouble light for this... . Also had my new m12 Fuel 3/8" ratchet going for this, plus the m18 Fuel compact 3/8" impact wrench that I've had for a few years now, grabbing it as soon as it became available. Done quite a good bit for me, in tandem with the mammoth Fuel High-Torque, but I'll definitely be looking forward to grabbing one of those killer new stubby m12 impacts real soon. . This upgrade to a 130A unit from a later-model Ranger 4.0 was a plug-and-play swap into my '95 - was more work making the trip to the big city to buy the new one. Certainly should have done it years ago, instead of waiting until the 95A one in it failed, but such is life... . . . . .

Why settle for just an adequate amount of work lighting...? . With all of the Milwaukee LED work lighting options I have, I passed over these 1000-lumen m12 Rover floods for the longest time. Finally trying one, I'm now totally hooked! I can't imagine anything working better up in this attic, with its like 20" deep blown insulation... πŸ‘Š . . . . .

🚨Deal alert!🚨 . Actually - deal of the century, imo! . The $399 Milwaukee Fuel 3-tool combo Packout that I bought and posted about a month or so back - and which at least a few of you jumped on - was a spectacular buy, for all you got... . Well, it is now totally insane, as Home Depot is now offering it with a free 5.0 battery / rapid charger starter kit - normally $189! . This was a daily deal on Sunday, and I tried to purchase it in-store, but it was online only. As I paid $379 for mine, using a coupon, I decided not to bother ordering online, as I have tons of batteries... . Realizing it actually included a rapid charger, and seeing it is now available online thru this weekend, I decided to go ahead and order it just now, and will return my original set. $20 more for a rapid charger and another 5.0 is a no-brainer... . I won't bother here with the rest of the details on what's in the kit, as most of you have seen my posts on it, will just reiterate - a crazy deal, that is now absolutely insane!! πŸ‘Š . . . . .
