        Comments about Tradesman 18V Cordless / 120V Corded Jobsite Radio:

        I do a lot of work in hard to get reception areas (warehouse type buildings with no windows). So far, this is the best radio to date that I've been able to find for reception in those areas. Much better than the DeWalt even though I really liked some of their features better. The bottom line for me was reception, and the Porter Cable is the way to go.

          Good raido. Has pretty good sound and a tough roll cage. I like the two outlets in the front. I use one to charge batteries and the other for my skill saw. Only down side is the raido is bulky and does not charge batteries

            Awesome radio, doesn't charge but does use my NiCd batteries from my current set, clear for having marine speakers, goes 14 hours on a single battery I'm sure it would last longer on lithium.

            Do you have a question about this product? 

             

            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.
            Condition: New Factory Reconditioned
            Features: Same Same
            Specs: Same Same
