I like Milwaukee next.
Porter Cable and Bosch are next.
Dewalt stuff is pretty crappy unless you buy the industrial quality stuff, which is very expensive.
Craftsman, Black and Decker, Ryobi, Cummins, and the like are really only for weekend warriors who use the products for light projects around the typical home.
I had those general impressions from very limited experience and a lot of heresay. I am definitely on teh weekend warrior side of things now that we are not extensively remodeling anymore, but in general still like to get quality stuff when I do get things, especially items I know I will use hard.
Where do you see Ridgid in this picture, LoganBuck?
