Milwaukee Hole Saw Factory Tour and Hole Dozer Manufacturing

Fresh off our checking out Milwaukee SawZall blade manufacturing, Ryan Rudzinski started off our Milwaukee Hole Saw factory tour with a look at the Hole Dozer bimetal hole saws. In 1992, Milwaukee hole saws were made in their Brookfield, WI facility. During 2004, they moved manufacturing to their Greenwood facility. In 2015 the Hole Dozer was announced. It broke norms by including […]

GreenWorks 40V Chainsaw Review

It’s not often that a cordless chainsaw gets more than a casual nod from professionals, but the GreenWorks 40V chainsaw literally raised eyebrows from several Pros we handed it to. The thought of going cordless in professional applications may be far from your mind, but consider a couple things we realized in the course of […]

Milwaukee M18 Fuel Blower Video Review

The Milwaukee M18 Fuel Blower isn’t going to blow you away with its 450 CFM and 100 MPH performance if you’re a landscaping or lawn care Pro. But that was never Milwaukee’s intent with their battery-powered OPE line. Nor was it to cater to the DIY crowd, either. So where does it fit? Milwaukee’s design […]

Franke Pull Down Kitchen Faucet Review with Fast-In

Since we took the time to do a Franke Fast-In sink review, installing a Franke pull down kitchen faucet seemed appropriate. After all, you can’t install a high-quality stainless steel sink and then slap your old faucet back in place. An upgrade seemed appropriate. We chose the Franke Bern FF20750 pull-down kitchen faucet for our evaluation. […]

Milwaukee M18 Compact Vacuum Video Review

The fight in the cordless compact vacuum class is heating up thanks to better motors and higher capacity motors. The Milwaukee M18 Compact Vacuum (found under model Milwaukee 0882-20) is a bare tool option claiming best in class suction power and offering a solid feature set. With suction power moving beyond the 30 CFM mark, […]

Hands-on Franke Fast-In Sink Review

When you’ve installed or remodeled several kitchens, eventually you begin looking for ways to improve your process. For the professional, time is money. That’s why Franke Fast-In sinks and Fast-In faucets first appealed to us. In the process of installing a new sink or faucet, any time savings turns into an advantage. We did this Franke Fast-In sink review to […]

Chainsaw Basics for Apprentices and Pros

It occurred to us that an article on chainsaw basics might be just the ticket for new apprentices getting into the field. It might even be a good refresher for Pros who do this day in and day out. The average chainsaw injury requires 110 stitches, so wear protective gloves, boots, chaps, and eye protection. […]

Milwaukee M18 Blower Review

We were caught off-guard last year when Milwaukee introduced new outdoor power equipment (OPE) products at their 2016 New Tools media event. Milwaukee calls it their New Tool Symposium, but I don’t drink enough Earl Grey tea to call it that. Among the tools announced were a Milwaukee M18 blower, a string trimmer, and a […]
