Re: Best power tools?

Currently Milwaukee seems to be leading the way in terms of having a large selection of quality tools that work with their battery system, which is why my newest purchase was Milwaukee. Their tools have very good "feel" and balance. They just feel like they could take a beating. I also own a Makita Li-ion drill that has been very good to me and has been heavily used.

In my opinion Ryobi is consumer level, suitable for occasional use in a household, not for professional use. They just feel like disposable junk compared to the higher end brands. When it comes to power tools you do indeed get what you pay for!
