Snapon can't touch the ingersol rand. The IR hits as hard as an air impact. Snapon does not make their impact either. You are just paying for the name on someone else's tool.
i have a pretty extensive makita line up but my guys wear them out a lot. i've yet to have a battery or tool warranteed even though they are all under the time because they say i over use them. thinking of going with the hilti lease program although it's expensive because we use the tools so much they will never last the 3 years of full coverage including batteries. the service is outstanding also, they have given me tools on loan for free, to try out or if my tool is getting repaired like my level lazer, hammer drill ect. that and i don't have to wander around shopping myself. rep told me he would even warranty a tool if it had an unfortunate accident like a forklift drive over it because it's worth it to him because i buy so much. all that said milwaukee makes quality stuff.#1= Snap On. USA, and a bit more torque than Milwaukee. 3x the price. Nice for yourself.
#2= Milwaukee. I like Milwaukee tools above all else. They ready do last versus a Dewalt or Makita or Hilti, or Bosch, or????
Hundreds of thousands spent on tools in the past 15 years for construction employee tools and Milwaukee wins hands down. Hilti and Bosch make good rotohammers and jigsaws but all other tools it's Milwaukee.
My money spent, my lessons learned, go Milwaukee. I refuse to allow my companies to buy Dewalt or Makita. Even Makita made in Japan is not up to everyday use and abuse.
Milwaukee cordless last longer than any other brand. Average 3 years full time construction abuse. Dewalt we were lucky to get 6 months, then warranty, shipping, employee time, etc....what a waste.
My fab guy and good friend has gone through 3 matco cordless drills, 2 Makita cordless drills, 3 dewalt corded grinders, and he still uses my personal 2007 cordless 18V Milwaukee drill/impact set and my 2006 Milwaukee angle grinder since his have broken! See the light brother!
My craftsman c3 batteries wont hold a charge for ****. 3 days or so and they're useless. It hardly gets used but I really don't trust it, so it sits on the shelf. At least it was cheap.Always liked milwaukee. I'm curious about the craftsman c3 and ryobi impacts. Would like some more feedback from people who have given them a go......anyone?
Do the craftsman put off and take off the torque they're rated for 200 I think?My craftsman c3 batteries wont hold a charge for ****. 3 days or so and they're useless. It hardly gets used but I really don't trust it, so it sits on the shelf. At least it was cheap.
The ryobis were ok but nothing to brag about. We had 3 on a team i used to work for.
The good friend i share my shop with has the KOBALT and that thing is serious business. Takes off anything my IR Ti 1/2" will @ 100psi.
