    what brands did you have 2 years ago?
    It`s better to be silent and thought the fool; than speak and remove all doubt.

    I swear by Fieldpiece for meters. Mine is an 10 year old one that is not made anymore, I can't suggest a specific model.

    For drills, I swear by Makita. Had Dewalt, Milwaukee for a time. both lasted 3 years combined. My Makita drill lasted 8 years before I replaced it just a week ago. I went with the Brushless motors (newest technology available). It is a Hammer Drill / Driver combo drill, and an Impact Drill. 18v, Lithium Ion batteries. Looking forward to another decade out of it.

    Tool bag depends on what kind of work you do. A installer's tool bag will be far different than a tech's.
