Im actually a rep for Milwaukee, Ridgid, and Ryobi. Milwaukee is definitely one of the best impacts and the only one I use and demo. Right now at Home depot you can get a Milwaukee drill and impact combo with 2 batteries for $199. Ridgid is close behind because they offer a lifetime warranty on their products which includes batteries. So if your battery stops working you get a brand new one for free. Ryobi is for the do it yourselfer who doesnt use the product much. I would recommend the Milwaukee because it has more tourqe than Dewalt and the battery technology is far superior.

I use a dewalt at work and trust me no one uses one harder or in a more harsh enviroment then I do. It has worked perfect for almost three years batteries perfect. The only one better is the snap on it is almost 50 ft/lb stronger but they run around 499.00 I think. for your money get the dewalt its stronger then the miluakie and you wont be sorry.... at least thats my 2 cents

I just bought this kit a couple weeks ago at home depot.
http://www.homedepot.com/Tools-Hardw...atalogId=10053
got it for $250 as it was the display model. The impact driver rocks! I put a door in with it shortly after!

I used dewalt drill drivers at work and found them to last about 1 - 2 months before we would burn up the motors or clutch. I switched to Milwaukee and they last 12+ months. The only thing with Milwaukee, is there older 18v batteries seemed to drain quicker. They have switched to a smaller 18v battery now that I'm not familiar with, but hopefully there is better battery life.

The Dewalt would probably be good for home / light industry use. For heavy use, I'd go Milwaukee or Makita. Some swear by Porter Cable, but I've killed some of their stuff.

What do you do that kills them ? I use my Makita everyday for years and drop it off ladder once in a while. Still works great. I did kill and replace a battery but that's about it.

I work at a BFGoodrich factory and work in industrial maintenance. Drill / drivers, sawzalls, and other big ticket items are shared tools that then get used 24/7 by many people. I'd have to say that its a very good testing grounds for tool durability.

Also, you may have misunderstood. I've never had issues with Makitas, but we've only had a few. Thats why the two I'd suggest are Milwaukee or Makita.

ive always used makita, had the 9v then the 12v and recently upgraded to the 18v cause i needed new batteries for the 12v and it was cheaper to buy the 18v set.. trust me you will never want to use any other brand!! others at my job have milwaukee, dewalt, ryobi and none compare to the makita. stronger, lighter and can take the beating of everyday use. batteries charge in 20 mins with the new lithium batteries. i would never buy anything else ever.

That new 18V lithium is nice and light isn't it. Lighter then my old 12V.
