Great Year for Tools


Recommended Posts

Every tool company has had some good announcements/releases. Makita with their sub compact line, Milwaukee with the one key reciprocating saw and 6.0 m12 battery, metabo with a new grinder and many others I haven't listed. I thought Milwaukee was the winner of 2015. Anyone think Dewalt killed it in 2016 with releases/announcements, maybe even a step above the rest? They introduced flexvolt with a cordless table saw and 12 inch miter saw, many 20v nailers, new 40v and flexvolt ope, and water resistant 6 bay fast charger just to name a few. I wonder who will "come out ahead" in 2017?

Makita - Kickass brushless impacts, sawzall


Ryobi- ya Ryobi, introduced brushless drill and impact, new light, cordless trim router 6.0 and 9.0


Ridgid - cordless trim router, brushless grinder, brushless circular saw (ONLY 199!!)


Kobalt - 24v tools with all batteries under 50 bucks!


Metabo - 1300 in lb drill, 9 in Cordless Grinder!


I know I barely scraped the surface but this was such an awesome year for tools so its hard to crown a winner but dewalt probably had the best year
