I just bought a Milwaukee last year. First Milwaukee tool I've ever
bought and I got to tell you, I love it. I had a PC 14.4 for a little
over a year when the motor went. Sent it back to be repaired but the
replaced the motor for free. Good service on that one. I was working
on a big project though so I went out and bought the Milwuakee 14.4
based on Wood Mag's reviews. The battery is reversible as someone
mentioned, which does allow you to get into tight spaces, but it also
serves as a counter weight. It sits very comfortably in the hand.
Torque in Wood's test was second to none and I can attest to that. Its
a beast. Battery life is not the best, also jives with Wood's test.
The other thing I love is that the chuck (made of metal by the way) is
tightened with one hand to the right torque.
Started with a Black and Deck, graduated to a Craftsman, then got the
PC. Used others DeWalt, won't give up the Milwaukee anytime soon.
Just in case it helps. Good luck,
