excuse the dutch here guys
ik ben zelf engels maar ik woon ook al 12 jaar in nederland.ik heb
dezelfde probleem met mijn taal,het verwaterd ove de jaren.Ik heb nog
steeds moete om in het nederlands te schriven maar het gaat over
Im going to invest in both the machines and schould it turn out to be
dissapointing then its a lesson learned,I dont think I will be though
they seem a lot better built than some of the other dedicated machines
that I have had in my hands,and the only alternative for real heavey
duty is pneumatic tools duofast and the likes of......so Ill let you
know what the europeans think when I get it.
Recently replaced my 14.4 v Porter Cable drill with a 14.4 v Milwaukee
when the batteries on the PC were going out and replacing was only
slightly more expensive than new batteries. Comparing the two, the
Milwaukee is definitely better built and more solid. It is also heavier
however -- that's either a good thing or a bad thing; in my case, my
elbow definitely feels the additional weight.
You may well find the same tool in Eupope branded as Atlas Copco - it's
certainly true of the drill/drivers.
AC stuck with the industrial tools whereas AEG are often the same tool in
looks but lacking the guts of AC/Milwaukee.
I've got two AC tools at the moment - a small 9.6v cordless that is doing
sterling service, and a BXPL100 or whatever jigsaw, which is a lovely tool.
My local shop (here in the UK) have just started selling the Milwaukee
brand, and that's gradually pushing the AC stuff out - I'm assured that it's
every bit as robust.
I'd go with one.

Yep,your right.I may have started a war here in europe for AC,remember
the volkswagen/volvo price fixing where they got large fines Milwaukee
are trying that in Holland as well.The dealers arent allowed to discount
but the price difference for the machine I want is enormous,in Holland
1069.81eur in England 748.00eur plus they`ll give me another 22eur of if
I collect.I phoned AC and asked what was going on where they refused to
comment and said they would call me back tomorrow.Needless to say I
ordered in England.typical kraut tactics nothing changes
