Wow. That gave me wood! I need every one of those accessories.

I really need the 28Volt hammer drill.

I feel like homer looking at donuts...

What a crappy web site! Well, it isn't even a web site. It's just a way of sending-out a proprietary file. Is it really a good marketing move to tell most of your customers to go away?

And, power is equal to the current times the voltage. You can get the same power from a 2V battery that you can from a 28V battery. The higher battery voltages are simply a marketing scam.z

I would still take my DeWalt 18v tools over those any day.

Mmmm....Milkwaukee......
I love my 14.4 volt driver.

use flash, see how the tools compare to similar tools at different voltages. You'll get many more cuts and holes made with the 28V tools. And the 28V cordless circular saw runs at corded saw speeds.

When DeWalt comes out with a better tool I'll be all over it. As a diclaimer, I've never used this brand of tool. I do use DeWalt tools at work every day and the are very durable. I have dropped my share of 18v DW drills etc. from an 8 and 10 foot ladder and they still run like a champ.

These are for the people who think 5-blade razors shave closer than 4-blades.

My 18v Dewalt 1/2" drill about broke my jaw on my last project.

I was screwing in some square drive screws just above eye level when
the screw stopped, but the drill kept going. Battery hit me in the bottom
of my chin, like an upper-cut. Knocked me to the ground.

Lesson learned. Don't set the torque setting any higher than I want to get hit with.

I hear ya i suspect many busted wrists with the 36v crowd .

28 volt tools were melting the solder in the motors. I nearly bought a set until I read a little on this. They did some testing and in some cases 18 volts were superior.

Caveat emptor

I got you beat.

I dropped my DeWalt at work off of a 200ft grain elevator. I saw it bounce off of the road below. I go down to pick it up, and it worked just fine, just some of the rubber from the grip was scraped off. That was almost a year ago, and I am still using the same DeWalt drill, and it has been dropped many more times after that.

I'll take Milkwaukee over Dewalt. To each their own.

The comparison is being made to lower-voltage tools using fewer of the same size cells. Of course you're going to get better performance with more of the same-sized cells, since you're putting more watt-hours into the battery pack (along with more weight and bulk). However, increase the size of the cells in the lower-voltage pack to a comparable weight and bulk, and the performance advantage of the higher-voltage pack vanishes.

Beyond a certain point, higher voltage becomes nothing more than a marketing gimmick - and that point was reached around 6 volts ago.
