Milwaukee IS Ryobi. Utter shite.

I got a Ryobi Job table saw, portable ya know, bought it for ONE job, used it on several now, I am surprised to say that it's still working great and has remained accurate......just don't try to power through a 4 x 4 with it

I really expected to toss it after that job....

I've had this one for I'm not sure how long, but it's well over 10 years and it's built a lot of shit, been dropped off roves, ladders onto concrete and gets used almost everyday, came with 2 batteries, the charger still works and the bats still hold a charge until you use them up and it will screw 3 inch TAPCONS into concrete all day long. One of the best power tools I've ever owned.



I got an old Ryobie too about the same age, but it's bats are dead, won't even last long even to put in a few 2 inch screws.

EDIT: To be fair, I usually only drive those tapcons in with a corded, 1/2 drive, electric impact gun or shoot them with the hilti these days, but I have used it in the past for that, before I had that impact wrench or the hilti.

I bought my corded B&D hammer drill specifically for Tapcons. Had an older drill (corded as well) that just DIED trying to install them. Totally started sparking and shocked the fuck out of me. Don't know the brand, but it was one of those old school stainless drills. When that shock hit me it felt like I got punched by Mike Tyson.

Hahaha, I was editing it while you posted.

Yeah, the impact gun or the hammer drill or the hilti is the only way to go when time is money, but that drill would be fine for the above average home owner, those do it themselves types that like to do it right the first time.

If you want to go the Makita route, have a look at the top of the batteries supplied. The BL1830 batts have had problems. There should be on new models a star on the casing where it slides into the drill, near the contacts. This shows that the battery is protected from overload (in the uk at least) and will stop your combi or impact driver getting damaged if the battery expires.
Also bear in mind your warranty. The Makita batts have a memory built in. Too many cylces (which Makita will check in the case of a warranty claim) and the warranty may not be honoured as it then comes under wear and tear. The batteries are also date marked on the casing.

How do you shoot a Tapcon with a Hilti?

You don't, I was just saying that I'll just shoot what ever I'm attaching to concrete with the hilti in instead of drilling and screwing, depends on how close to an edge it is, shit like that because using a hilti close to an edge will just break it off, in that case I would carefully use a tapcon.

The hilti takes seconds, especially the auto load ones
