            I don't like it. Looks unbalanced and awkward. The Rothenbergers have the battery on the bottom. I think the new ridgid model is still a gun type. It's certainly not an inline.

                    None of them are real "one handed" operation. You still have to open the jaws and insert on fitting. I'm waiting for the tool that you can press a button on the side next to the trigger that opens the jaws. Now that would be sweet!

                      The Milwaukee is...did you try? It is easy to open the jaw with the thumb and then press the trigger...never seen that before....amazing......

                        That's how it works with ALL OF THEM, the Milwaukee isn't special in that aspect. I wouldn't touch the Milwaukee unless the price was considerably less than Ridgid or Rothenberger.

                                Sorry but I'm not very impressed with the Milwaukee. I've also had many problems in the past with Milwaukee tools. I had the compact sawzall and it was horrible. I ended up slamming it on the garage floor about 10 times before I threw it into the dumpster. I have the copper cutter and really like it. Problem is it's always breaking down. I've sent it back once already to be repaired and a couple months later now it's doing the same thing, takes forever to cut. Plus it won't cut type L, well maybe if you want to wait forever. The springs which put tension on the pipe either break or wear out very quickly. No thanks, my next compact press tool won't be a Milwaukee. From my experience the Milwaukee tools are cheaply made and don't last.

                                I believe you are a rep for Milwaukee and if that's the case then prove me wrong. Send a demo on over and I'll use it for a month and give it an honest review. Send me an email if you're interested.
