Totally agree. That 12v NexTecc is one great little drill. Plus several other items powered by the same battery. I also use it far more than my 20 volt. In fact the 20 volt seldom gets used anymore.I agree on the 12 v stuff for lighter duty use. I have a craftsman 12v Nextec set and an 18v dewalt set, I find myself reaching for the Nextec stuff way more often.
I have the 12V Li Ion also. Drill and drivers. I haven't found anything better for the money.I have a dewalt 12vL ion set and for the size it is really surprising. 9 times out of 10 I reach for the 12v stuff over my 18 and 24v tools, all are dewalts. I bought my drill and 1/4 impact driver as a set for around $125 I think.
Yes the M12 those are the same ones I was talking aboutretfr8flyr said:Check out the new Milwaukee M12 Fuel Brushless models. I am very happy with the power, weight and battery life on the M12. I have the Fuel M18 also and I like the light weight of the M12 for most needs.
I I also have the multi-tool and also think it is great. I have however, mistreated it a bit. I used it a lot to clean barnacles off the running gear on my boat. The last time I used it I forgot to remove the blade and thoroughly clean it. The blade retaining bolt rusted in place. Lots of salt water soaking in that operation.Which other tools do you use George? I have the multi tool and love it...
