I had Dewalt for years, gave em to the kid when he bought his house. They were getting wore out but would be fine for what he would need. I bought a Makita drill and driver and hand router, and really like them. But I've bought some Ryobi stuff lately and really like them. The 5 1/2" saw is pretty dang sweet and the batteries won't take ya broke. My wife's uncle passed and I got his Milwaukee set, the only thing I don't like is they are friggin heavy. Older I get the lighter I like my cordless tools.
