Best Plumber/Electrician Kit – Milwaukee M18 Lithium Ion Combo Kit
Model # 2696-24 – $429 Added Circular Saw Model 2630-20 – $119
The tools offered in this kit is a great option for an entry level trades person, reliable, powerful, affordable, and even gets you going with a large contractor bag. But we found the circular saw to be the difference maker for a framer since it doesn’t quite have the power and runtime of the other tools, due to the heavy duty applications, like cutting sheet goods or engineered lumber.
The kit is fine as is, for plumbers and electricians for cutting some blocking or notching some framing. However, because the circular saw is a separate bare tool, you can upgrade it to the FUEL line if you are a carpenter, or what makes it perfect kit for the Plumber/Electrician is the option to augment the kit with trade specific tools like the metal cutting circular saw (2682-20) or a band saw (2629-20).
And of course since Milwaukee’s core users include plumbers and electricians you can count on the platform to cater to your needs with application specific plumbing and electrical tools that you can buy into as bare tools or add to your battery collection with additional kits. The low cost of entry.
