I've never really been brand specific on power tools since mine are just homeowner usage. I've got Milwaukee corded, DeWalt corded, Makita corded, Porter Cable cordless and DeWalt cordless. Last week at lowe's I picked up a 20 volt DeWalt drill and impact set that was on sale. Those new ones are definitely nice, compact and comfortable to hold. Gas powered yard equipment is where I have worked up to brand specific, Stihl all the way now!
