If you have a helper give them a drill driver with the clutch turned wayyyy down and you use the impact. Yes there is a story behind this  :D

I think this constantly upping the voltage on hand tools is/was more for advertising than actual performance, I put in lots of roofing screws with a 9.6V Makita. Since Milwaukee seems to be staying with the 18V lineup I wouldn't mind moving in that direction.

I got the M18 drill kit as a B-day present from the wife; tell ME she isnít sweet and we will step outside. I also picked out an M18 grease gun because I have an oddball project that holds about 8 tubes of grease. (Please donít ask, I will just agree that if all is correct, you shouldnít use lubricant like that in this application.) Itíll dump a new tube in about 90 seconds, it sure beats doing it buy hand, and now I donít have ANY reason for making sure that anything with a fitting isnít greased!

She might even get the ALWAYS starting M18 chainsaw to ride with her for those strange times that she needs one, she is a rural route postal worker, (rain, sleet, snow or night, the mail MUST go through. And rarely a tree or large branch!). She has expressed interest of a saw of her own, but Iím reluctant because I canít even get her to listen to me about PPE; or technique!
Trying harder everyday.

The M18 tools are quality tools.  I have an M18 drill and impact driver that I received as a gift.

I also have a about 7 or 8 Dewalt 20V Max tools.  I got started with the Dewalt tools and batteries years ago.  Itís hard to switch lines once you get hooked into the batteries which is where the cost is.   Right now Home Depot has a two battery kit with charger for $199 and you get a ďfreeĒ tool of your choice.  The batteries are 4ah and 6ah and there are 6 or 7 tools to pick from.

Do you have a "Lock-N-Lube" on the end of that?  Makes it twice the tool it is to begin with.

Southside, yes!  That alone, does great things for ANY grease gun.
