Quality for small jobs
by Lorenz Prem on 06-29-2014 7:50 pm

This week we'll take a look at the Milwaukee2401, a compact drill/driver in the M12 line. Positioning a highquality tool with the matching price tag in the lower end of thetorque range is always risky. Let's take a look, if the engineersat Milwaukee managed to deliver a useful tool, or if the 2401 issimply too weak for what it is going for.

Very good in moderation
by Lorenz Prem on 03-09-2014 9:53 pm

The excellent PCC600 cordless drill I reviewed acouple of weeks ago made me look forward to this week's review thePCC640 cordless driver. If the two tools are anything alike, thePCC640 will perform like a sport car. Let's take a look, if thePCC640 cordless driver matches the high quality of the tools inPorter Cable's 18V lineup, or if it turns out to be a lemon.

"Drill/driver OK, reciprocating and circular saws are junk. No torque, circular saw won't cut thru a 2x4, reciprocating won't cut a 4x4 without bogging."
"Indeed, this one is the best 12V driver. Get it. You will not be disappointed."
"I use this one for heavy work. It can do it all. None better."
"Love this Router"
"Great driver with only minor issues. App is limited. The last gen is almost as good, yet a lot cheaper."
"This saw replaced a Delta Unisaw in my shop. It's rock solid, powerful, and well made. Fence rivals Biesemeyer or Unifence. Worth the price, IMHO."
"Excellent performance but tough to use at high speed with soft wood, tends to drive too deep before impact kicks in."
"This is my only true drill. The key-less chuck works flawlessly as does the power/speed switch which is handy for drilling various density material."
"A quality sander that performs well day in and day out. Not the best dust bag, that's minor for me. Fits well in my hand and no fatigue with prolonged use."
"A good option for those looking for their first saw, or those looking to upgrade from a "portable" job site saw. Buy a decent blade and you'll be happy."
