Long story short I used to hang garage doors for a living and I did many on the side. For my personal use I used a Rigid Impact and Drill. After 10 years they died so I just replaced with a new version of what I had. Well they are junk and being returned. I need to know what brand cordless tools you guys use and why as I am starting my side business up again.

I've had very good experience with Milwaukee impacts. Use them all the time in a manufacturing environment

I am a big fan of my Hitachi ones. They also have a lifetime warranty on their drills. Def take a look.

I have used Dewalt the last few years. So far, they are pretty reliable.

Milwaukee Fuel line is decent. Makita doesn't keep up with it. And it's not as hard on your hands and wrist with the impact.

I swear by Makita for it's long term durability.

I like the Milwaukee stuff too but their new Brushless stuff dies if it gets wet in my experience.

Probably going Milwaukee. The warranty is better
