Consider me an addict, if you must!

These are just my more recent additions. I also have the M18 Fuel circular saw and 1/2" high torque on the way.

It's very good, I have used it on and off on the 4.0XC for about a half hour.
It does what it's suppose to do. I like it. I use it when I go and hang flat screen TVs. It does a great job and the suction feels that of a standard shop VAC.

Thanks. Gonna have to grab one. I'm almost totally cord-free on service calls and smaller jobs at this point. Need a cordless multi-tool too, but I was hoping for a Fuel version.

I've got so much Milwaukee, there's stuff I haven't even used yet. Grabbed these 2 a little while back when there was still US-made stuff to be had.

My ONLY complaint is that the optional handle on the drill cannot be moved to all sorts of positions like on the dewalt..where it slides on the ring. Don't even ask me how good the 1/2 impact is.

I would keep the corded goodies as spares. I know they take up space but you never know. Someone may ask to borrow your cordless and all you have to do is dig a corded unit up and there you have it. I don't like to loan out my tools but when I do it is and will always be a corded unit. People never take care of your stuff the way you would
