Jobsite radio

That one is nice but doesn't have Bluetooth I don't know if that's a deal breaker for you. The other thing is its much smaller than the really awesome M18 Bluetooth charging radio. I will say that the bluetooth m18 is a beast and it would suck to move around all the time, but its an awesome job site radio

I've had the 2792 and its a great radio. A bit on the pricey side though. It does have a lot of problems too though. There's a reason I have a Dewalt radio now. I love the tough system radio , best sound on the market,but unless you already have Dewalt batteries I'd go with that 2890 you're looking at. 90% of the radio use is going to be fm anyways because you really don't want to be constantly changing your music on your phone while you are trying to work. Just my two cents.

A lot of people are using things like Apple Music or Spotify now over old school radio. Most stations suck so bad now.

I am in the market for a new radio to use at work. I have several Milwaukee tools already. I am leaning towards the 2890. Does anyone have this model ? Or are there other models or brands I should be looking at ?

Hey unclebud,

Was looking at that 2792 for myself in the shop. Was looking at the specs.

Milwaukee® Introduces First Charging Radio with Bluetooth® for the Jobsite

I think Milwaukee just came out with this radio, not sure how long ago, but it says new on the page. 

I'm not big into radios, but it's crazy how many different options are available,
