    Comments about Job Site Radio:

    Wow! This unit outdoes my previous jobsite radio of a different manufacturer by light years. It accepts all my Milwaukee batteries from 12v to 28v. This is a big plus when using diffent power tools with different voltate batterie. I took it to a remote rural location and got amazing AM radio reception. The digital tuner works great. I haven't use the peripheral device feature as yet but the sound is so good with the radio I hve no worry the device sound will be exceptional as well.

      Comments about Milwaukee Job Site Radio:

      i just started renovations at home, mostly DIY stuff. longest tedious project is painting the whole house. tho the house is empty, there's still a lot of prepping. while i'm prepping upstairs, i'm still able to hear the radio from downstairs clearly, so the radio is certainly powerful enough, and i didn't have to push it pass the halfway point on the volume control

      made wasn't as well made as japanese products but for something that's made in China, it's doable. radio reception is crystal clear, i wasn't surprised because radios came a long way in getting reception, but was glad that i have no issues with it.

      i also love the color as well as the metal handles on the radio. and because it's made box-like, it's easy to store and easy to handle or "throw it around".

      i was disappointed that it was NOT bluetooth equipped but it's not a big problem. the more expensive radio has bluetooth but it's also a tool battery charger and i don't need that feature so i opt for the cheaper model and am satisfied with it.

      Comments about Milwaukee Job Site Radio:

      Decent radio, mainly use it for outdoor projects around the house.
      Problems:
      The buttons for changing the radio station and volume suck, it takes a seemingly very long time to go from low volume to high. The buttons are almost delayed and need to be pushed in deeply. Other issue is it does not charge batteries. And the USB port has never worked.
      Pluses:
      I've had this radio for over a year and use it pretty regularly.... It gets thrown around and still works great. it always puts out great sound. The M18 batteries last a good while in it too.
      The bottle opener is a great touch.

        Comments about Job Site Radio:

        I wanted a jobsite radio/iPod player for my workshop, where I create a lot of sawdust, and I really like the locking battery/iPod compartment. This radio should do just fine out there. The tone & sound of this radio are great; reminds me of my old boombox I had the 80's. Some might think this radio is a little large and heavy, but that is not a problem with me; it has rails on all sides and easy to pick up & move around. If you are looking for a nice radio/iPod player, I highly recommend this one from CPO; this radio is just like new and comes with a warranty, but best of all, the price cannot be beat!

            • Staff Reviewer

              A:

              It really depends on the batteries that you are using. Both M18 and M12 batteries are available in small, compact batteries and big, fatpack batteries. On average the M18 fatpack batteries last about 3-4 hours while the compact batteries last 2-3 hours. The M12 compact batteries last about an hour while their counterpart fatpack batteries may last up to two hours. It also depends on the weather outside and how much power the radio is using i.e volume level, bass, and radio station.

          New Vs. Reconditioned

          What's the difference between New and Factory-Reconditioned?

          Factory-Reconditioned products have been returned to the manufacturer and are restored to like-new operating condition; they go through a rigorous testing and inspection process. Plus, they offer a significant savings vs. new.
          • Reconditioned products may have minor cosmetic blemishes or scratches that do not affect item performance.
          • Reconditioned products may not come with all of the consumables the new version comes with (bits, sanding pads/papers, cases, etc.).
          • Both come with a manufacturer warranty and are covered by our Money Back Guarantee; New is 30 days, Reconditioned is 60 days.
