    Comments about Job Site Radio:

    This job site radio is very attractive, most of my hand tools are Milwaukee so I love it's appearance. It picks up FM and AM stations well and hooks up to my smart phone effortlessly. The on/off button is large while other controls can be operated with a gloved hand. My biggest disappointment is the surprising lack of volume. I bought this as a reconditioned unit so maybe the volume issue got by them. It is loud enough for my shop and the work I do outside. The sound quality is exceptional but if you need to cover a large work area there might not be enough sound.

      Comments about Job Site Radio:

      I workout outside once a week with a bunch of colleagues relatively close to a busy road. I hook up my phone with the Spartacus workout video (DL from Youtube) to the boombox. Pump up the volume and go. Works great. Even when there's wind and road noise our group (approx. 8 to 10) can still feel the beat, hear the music and follow the instructions. Battery goes long too without recharging.

        Q:

        i purchased this radio last year to use in my UPS truck along with two battery packs and a charger. must say that i am very pleased,especially as it works with my ipod, and use this product ten or more hours a day. then suddenly one day the control buttons (volume, mode, tuning, mute etc) ceased to work at all. according to the amazon website through which i purchased my radio there is a five year warranty. is it possible yo get the device repaired or replaced as it is hands down the best work radio i've had in the twenty-three years i've been a ups driver

          You can contact Milwaukee directly to discuss this situation. The radio would be covered by a warranty. They can be contacted directly at 1-800-729-3878.

          Yes, it is possible to have warranty work done. The instruction manual should have a phone number to call in order to get support.
