I'm looking at getting a 18v cordless combo. I want a driver/hammer drill, impact driver, torch and maybe a grinder

My question is what brand to get? I would like 3+ amp hour batteries, I can't decide between AEG, makita, Milwaukee or dewalt.

Can any of you guys help? I'm from Sydney Australia if that helps

I have various milwaukee M18 and M12 tools and there is absolutely nothing that I haven't tried to do with them. Every time I pick one up it amazes me.

You ever see the B&D 20 volt stuff, down under?
My first drill was a B&D 24 volt hammerdrill $99 bought it in 2001. That served me well for years. Gave it to a younger coworker in 2010. He used it for about a month. Got some drywall dust in the motor and it locked up. He said the batteries were still strong.

Just before i gave it away I bought a porter cable 18volt for $135. That still runs great as well as the impact and 4 tool combo kit to go with it.
Batteries are still strong and they do everything I ask of them.
