    it will happen. We are lining up a Hitachi for 2015

  2. Skill Builder says:

    All manufacturers had trouble with Li-ion batteries in the early days. Some
    admitted it others didn’t. The trouble is that once the LI-Ion battery has
    been run down past a certain point it won’t recover no matter what you do.
    These days all the good Li-Ion batteries have a built in cut off circuit
    to make sure they hold enough charge to survive. If you see a Li-Ion
    battery with just two terminals it is an old style battery which means that
    as soon as it gives out you need to recharge it rather than leaving it for
    a few seconds and giving it another go.

  3. Skill Builder says:

    We are in the U.K and we don’t see Ridgid drills here. The brand is known
    for plumbing tools but not drills.

  4. Skill Builder says:

    If you mean SDS hammer then the speed is usually quite low in RPMs but the
    jjoules of hammer power are key.
    All the major manufacturers make good hammer drills.I like Hilti because
    they seem to last for a long time but they cost a bit more but DeWalt<
    Milwaukee and Makita all have good machines. In particular look out for
    pneumatic hammer where a piston of air is the striking force. If you are
    looking at cordless there are 36 volt machines out there that pack a punch
    but if you are running 18 volt on your other machines it makes sense to use
    the same battery platform.

  5. ppdan says:

    Nice to see how long you can work with a single battery but what bothers me
    most is how long does the charger take to recharge that battery!
    That’s why I prefer Makita, they got better chargers.

  6. VENTS says:

    Milwaukee has a 80 min charge time. Makita has a 22min charge. Who can
    drill the most hole in a 8 hour work day?

  7. Terry Wills says:

    So you ran a bunch of compact drills against Milwaukee’s top of the line
    industrial drill. Seems fair….

  8. Leane Garden says:

    You are most definitely are missing the Craftsman Drill for this comparison
    Which belong to USA Sears Store. If you are trying t be serious with your
    testings, you must include the Craftsman tools as well!

  9. Xtremedog83 says:

    I have a makita set of drills and my drill can drill through 3 peices of
    soft wood easily I had to do it multiple times drilling holes for
    electrical

  10. Patrick Walker says:

    Nice comparison test for performance but I also consider durability,
    longevity & the warranty. Having owned the Makita LCT200W 18v 2-piece combo
    kit since July 2011 (homeowner use – once a week, 2X per month), I would
    probably not purchase this brand again. I’ve had 2 battery failures, half
    of them to be exact, lasting right at the one year mark. The other 2 Makita
    Li-ion batteries, a 1.5 mAh and a 3.0 mAh seem to be doing quite well.
    

  11. bighunterman77 says:

    this was biased…the dewalt compact against the big badass fuel? of course
    the dewalt loses…but, the big badass dewalt against the big badass
    milwaukee? i think they’d tie at the least

  12. joe Daveson says:

    Never heard of matabo drills but they sound like garbage. You can’t really
    tell your boss sorry can’t do that yet my drill needs a rest lol junk

  13. Maximus Octavius says:

    Nice video and very informative, I don’t have much to add since I do not
    own a drill in any of the brands you tested, I recently purchased a
    POWERBUILT 19.2 volt drill,(red/black) it is sold in the USA under the
    Kawasaki (neon green/black) brand and / or Alltrade. I will be testing it
    tomorrow to see if it worth the $56.00 I paid for it brand new. 

  14. 99Eternal says:

    Dewalt and Milwaukee win it for me.
    I don’t think either brand is necessarily better overall, it depends on
    what tool(s) are in question and what you will be using it for exactly.
    For example, 1/4″ impact drivers. The dewalt wins me over because it feels
    better, grip is a bit softer and more ergonomic, and the lighting is
    definitely better. Ive owned the 20v brushless and the fuel.
    On the other hand, reciprocating saws Milwaukee wins it with the M18
    Hackzall (wtb brushless 18v version though). Comparable to the two handed
    models in terms of power but amazingly agile with 1 handed operation,
    simply awesome design perfectly balanced with one hand and very easy to
    apply downforce and control the cut vs a standard recip. I enjoy using it
    every single time.

  15. Oscar Gomez says:

    I own makita but to each his own 

  16. michael cannock says:

    milwaukee waste of time don’t honor their warranty gone back to dewalt and
    makita great tools great warranty.and if your a trades person good warranty
    count for alot if you use them every day

    Not a fair test,the milwaukee was their fullsize drill the dewalt,makita
    and bosch are compact drills I seen the dewalt fullsize go up against the
    milwaukee fullsize and beat it

    Great vid, I thought the milwaukke would win. Shame about the meatbo and
    that you didn’t use the dewalt 995. but all in all I hit the like button.
    keep up the good work! :) 

  21. Phi Chai says:

    Roger: Thank you very much for testing the quality 18 volt combination
    drills in your unbiased test. The tool department buyers at my family owned
    builders merchants store in rural Buriram Thailand also noted top results
    with the Milwaukee 18 volt Fuel18 M18CPD 4.0 Brushless Combination
    cordless drill. My family owned tool supply store Ruangsangthai Ltd. is
    very proud to sell and repair quality Milwaukee Power Tools in Buriram
    Province, Thailand. I will broadcast your video on the video monitors of
    the power tool department in Buriram. 

  22. Working Man says:

    I have to agree with u 18 volt Milwaukee is the best cordless drill I’ve
    been in this business fpr more years I would care to mention I’ve been in
    it before cordless drills or even thought of the first one I actually have
    the Black and Decker it wasn’t a bad drill but nothing compared to when the
    bigger company started making them

  23. phillip watson says:

    I know these are all good tools for the trade but I was wondering how they
    compare to the Hilti 18v cordless drill. Yes I know Hilti is tops and used
    in many industrial construction sites here in New Zealand but would like to
    see a demo comparison on you tube :-) 

  24. Tristan102100 says:

    isn’t really a fair test for the dewalt for heavy duty drilling. you are
    using the compact light duty drill against makitas and milwakees top of the
    line hole machine. i have the premium 20v hammer drill and it is definitley
    a huge difference in torque.

  25. cableaddict says:

    Helpful, but mostly all you did was rate them for power / run time.

    What about weight, balance, the chuck, overall build quality, etc etc?

    It should also be noted that Li-Ion batteries, while great for contractors,
    are terrible for homeowners since they go bad in 2 years whether you use
    them a lot or not.
