    Milwaukee has traditionally always been about power tools for the plumbing / pipe-fitting and electrical trades first, as I’m sure you know. DeWalt only just recently came out with something to rival the M18 Hawgs, 2 years later. Do either of the blue shades have one yet, at all?

    I don’t think so,, that has only happened sense TTI the Hong Kong investment group has bought them out. 30 to 40 years ago they were known for their sawsalls and circ saws and drills. They were mainly known for their sawsalls tho. The circ saw was so much of a beast that nobody used it, at least not here or in Florida.

    I don’t know much about Hawgs because I am usually building buildings with wood and we just don’t have a need for Hawgs. Not even sure what a Hawg is.. I have some very strong drills but none of them are blue.

    I don’t know if this is supposed to be some kind of joke but a hole hawg is one of the most popular right angle drills around. If you haven’t seen one I’d be pretty shocked.

    sawsalls and circ saws and drills

    Which you never saw a chippy with, ever – at least not around here. Too powerful, I think. All you’d ever hear about on the drills from them would be how “you’re going to break you arm”. Never did.

    I’ll see your hawg, and raise you this:

    No, The saw just too heavy. It was heaver than the SkilSaw. The SkilSaw was the saw that everyone always used.
    Is that your cat?? That was the Lazy Piggs yard pigg I posted.

    No, I know – heavy, and expensive at the time. If a carpenter didn’t mind heavy and expensive, he’d usually have Porter Cable. My drills and saws were mostly PC, had little Milwaukee back then. But, every single plumber I knew had nothing but Milwaukee.

    Speaking of which, I see on Ebay that the Porter Cable stuff I still have is worth a small fortune. Maybe time to cash out on it.

    It’s a good looking design, I have the Ridgid one which is nice to use. Still I don’t find it assmoothe of powerful as my Bosch Corded version. Though it just depends on the task at hand, seriously don’t expect to get away using one tool for every application.

    No joke man,, when the plumbers and electricians are in there the building is built and we are gone on to the next one..

    Just had a trigger failure on my fuel drill today so I’ll be looking at buying a new drill this week. Just trying to decide if I should get the one key drill or just the regular fuel as a replacement

    Get the Packout rolling box kit at HD, it’s 500 but you get a one key Sawzall, drill, impact, 2 5Amp and 1 9 Amp battery.
    If I didn’t already have all three I would hop on this deal so fast!

    Wow, that’s a nice package, just those batteries alone are worth more than the price.



    @kswiss
    hey Kyle, didn’t they replace your sawzall that had a similar problem. Hopefully they do the same with the drill.
    I saw that picture / video on Instagram, you certainly have had good use out of the drill.

    I’ll probably just throw it out when I get a new one, I don’t really want to spend any time fixing it. It’s been through a lot so it’s probably time for a new one anyways.
