I've discovered another category that the Milwaukee marketing people have so far neglected for this tool, and that is DIY guys who have developed arthritis in their hands. I made this discovery a few weeks ago when I went to squeeze the trigger on my trusty hand-powered caulking gun and I let out a "YEOW!" followed by a string of words they won't print here. Maybe they should advertise this tool in the AARP magazine.
It's a very nice caulking gun. I already had the batteries and charger for other tools so I bought the tool only. A neat feature is that when you let off the trigger it automatically "backs off" the plunger a bit, maybe 1/8" so the caulk won't continue to flow after you let off the trigger and make a mess. Even if you have arthritic hands it's easy to use. I'm just an average guy with one house to maintain, but this tool is so easy to use I'm looking for stuff that needs caulking. And it's a lot cheaper than having to hire somebody to do your caulking for you!
There is a learning curve to this tool but it doesn't take all that long.
The 12v battery seems to last a very long time with the adhesive I'm using: four 10-oz tubes and still showing full charge. It also charges in about 30 minutes.
On the downside, this unit is still heavier than a manual caulk gun by far. If you're working overhead, e.g., caulking crown molding, it gets tiresome to hold. If you are used to working with a nail gun overhead, this gun is much lighter and you will have no problem. For work not overhead, the weight is not an issue at all.
CPOMilwaukee handled my order accurately and very quickly...positive experience all around.
Most of my DIY battery tools are DeWalt and Makita, this is my first Milwaukee. I'm impressed so far.
