I am getting ready to buy a new Milwaukee cordless drill. I have had a
dewalt for 10 years. I love it, but the batteries are finally starting to
die, and a new drill is about the same price as 2 new batteries. (I am
switching to milwaukee, becasue I have use a friends some, and think they
are even better than the dewalt.)
Anyway, I really like the 14.4 volt models instead of the lareger ones
because they are lighter and fit into tighter spaces. And, they are plenty
powerful for what I need to do.
However, I just saw the article in Populare woodworking on the new 28 volt
line of tools from milwaukee. They sound pretty good. They claim they are
lighter than the 18V line. They are not out yet though, and I am not finding
price info. The magazine article said the drill kit would sell for $233,
which is not much more than the $178 current price for the 14.4 volt kit
from amazon. One website I found with an advanced price listed it at over
$400 though. Does anyone have any better information?
I think I will probably still go with the 14.4V, but if the 28 is really
only $233, then that would be tempting.
