    This is pretty much the crux of it unless you want multiple battery/charging systems.

    At home I run Dewalt while my work van is stocked with Milwaukee. I'm happy with both, it's some of the more 'specialty' tools where one might excell or have a feature the other doesn't. If you primarily want basic drill,impact,saw set up, buy a package deal on sale. DeWalt, Milwaukee,Makita( buddy happy with his stuff) will all serve you well.

    I'm using Ryobi stuff, just around the house and farm. Happy with it and lots of sales at HD on it.

    Ryobi does seem to be the most diverse lineup. Especially for small things like inspection cable cameras, etc. Price points are always nice with them as well.

    Kinda the opposite of Hilti...

    They carry a large assortment of Ryobi at Home Depot. If you head to a wholesaler (usually a nuts and bolts place that also deals in tools) there is a ton of Milwaukee/Makita/Dewalt stuff that you’ll never see at a big box store. The Makita catalogue alone is over an inch thick, with ten or a dozen tools to a page. Includes their gas and corded stuff too, but the cordless selection is huge.

    I don't have a lot of cordless tools as I bring a generator with me if I am building something substantial with no power nearby. I do have a cordless Dewalt 20v drill which is great and also a Dewalt Battery Powered Heated Camouflage Parka Jacket for those cold days on the deer stand.
