  • Milwaukee PRESS GUN

    Has anyone seen these before? either in person at a demo or something? looks like a quality setup... i DO like the fact that the unit is all inline as opposed to the pistol style ridgid setup.... i know im on a ridgid forum but some unbiased thoughts would be appreciated...

    also it comes in two battery configurations..... the 18volt and the 12volt..twelve volt is obvisously for smaller presses, and its compact size......and they also have the press ring kit similiar to the press rings from ridgid...

      The Tools-Plus retailer link has the 18V one for $3099.00. Grainger has a tendency to be heavy on the $$$ in my experience.

      Get a Rothenberger compact. Better yet, for the majority, don't get any of the press tools. You'll be fine without them.

          according to the grainger website specs, it's made in china.

          Country of Origin

            I've never held a press tool. Is there anything in them that can justify prices like this?

              For 95% of the plumbers, I would have to say no.

                And does it matter if it's made in China? India? Turkey?

                  price and quality is usually the factor.

                  if it was made in the usa, expect another 25-50% more. but the quality would be 100% better.

                  at $4900. graingers will be sitting on them till the batteries go bad.

                    Rothenberger was the first with the slim line. I've owned two of them and like them. High quality and they last. I currently own the ACECO unit but want to get the smaller compact slim line. You can get one new for around 1700.
                    I wouldn't buy the Milwaukee. I've had trouble with every Milwaukee tool I've ever owned and for that price forget it.

                        With jaws? That's reasonable for the 12 volt then if you have a use for it.

                        Stick beats gun all day long.

                          yeah i got quoted $2500 for the 18 volt kit with a free cutter and a 12 volt battery(could use a xtra 12 volt battery for my multitool). and yes its with jaws bob and bob when you refer to Stick beats gun all day long are you refering to the inline design of the milwaukee compared to the ridgid "gun" version.

                            Yes, in my opinion, stick beats gun. Handled or used the Ridgid, Stanley, REMS gun type. Stick beats gun. Double check your needs vs. production & service downtime for them though. And IronRanger's experience is of note cause you're not talking about a $200.00 cordless drill set.

                              Bob...why do you like the stick type better then the gun style? Are you still using your original nibco and how is it holding up?
