    Comments about Job Site Radio:

    Wow! This unit outdoes my previous jobsite radio of a different manufacturer by light years. It accepts all my Milwaukee batteries from 12v to 28v. This is a big plus when using diffent power tools with different voltate batterie. I took it to a remote rural location and got amazing AM radio reception. The digital tuner works great. I haven't use the peripheral device feature as yet but the sound is so good with the radio I hve no worry the device sound will be exceptional as well.

      Comments about Milwaukee Job Site Radio:

      i just started renovations at home, mostly DIY stuff. longest tedious project is painting the whole house. tho the house is empty, there's still a lot of prepping. while i'm prepping upstairs, i'm still able to hear the radio from downstairs clearly, so the radio is certainly powerful enough, and i didn't have to push it pass the halfway point on the volume control

      made wasn't as well made as japanese products but for something that's made in China, it's doable. radio reception is crystal clear, i wasn't surprised because radios came a long way in getting reception, but was glad that i have no issues with it.

      i also love the color as well as the metal handles on the radio. and because it's made box-like, it's easy to store and easy to handle or "throw it around".

      i was disappointed that it was NOT bluetooth equipped but it's not a big problem. the more expensive radio has bluetooth but it's also a tool battery charger and i don't need that feature so i opt for the cheaper model and am satisfied with it.

      Comments about Milwaukee Job Site Radio:

      Decent radio, mainly use it for outdoor projects around the house.
      Problems:
      The buttons for changing the radio station and volume suck, it takes a seemingly very long time to go from low volume to high. The buttons are almost delayed and need to be pushed in deeply. Other issue is it does not charge batteries. And the USB port has never worked.
      Pluses:
      I've had this radio for over a year and use it pretty regularly.... It gets thrown around and still works great. it always puts out great sound. The M18 batteries last a good while in it too.
      The bottle opener is a great touch.

        Comments about Job Site Radio:

        I wanted a jobsite radio/iPod player for my workshop, where I create a lot of sawdust, and I really like the locking battery/iPod compartment. This radio should do just fine out there. The tone & sound of this radio are great; reminds me of my old boombox I had the 80's. Some might think this radio is a little large and heavy, but that is not a problem with me; it has rails on all sides and easy to pick up & move around. If you are looking for a nice radio/iPod player, I highly recommend this one from CPO; this radio is just like new and comes with a warranty, but best of all, the price cannot be beat!

              It's not known if the newer model will have charging capabilities but I'm sure ithe company has heard what we want, they tried to make us happy by making it where u can use any battery. The next edition will probably even have outlets built in, it shouldn't be long for new radio since the FUEL edition is making its way

          Warranty

          The Milwaukee Reconditioned Product Limited Warranty


          Every MILWAUKEE RECONDITIONED product is warranted to be free from defects in material and workmanship. Subject to certain exceptions, MILWAUKEE will repair or replace any part on a reconditioned product which, after examination, is determined by MILWAUKEE to be defective in material or workmanship for a period of one (1) year after the date of purchase. Return the reconditioned product and a copy of proof of purchase to a MILWAUKEE factory Service /Sales Support Branch location or MILWAUKEE Authorized Service Station, freight prepaid and insured. This warranty does not apply to damage that MILWAUKEE determines to be from repairs made or attempted by anyone other than MILWAUKEE authorized personnel, misuse, alterations, abuse, normal wear and tear, lack of maintenance, or accidents. THIS WARRANTY SUPERSEDES ANY PRIOR OR OTHER WARRANTIES CONTAINED IN ANY OPERATOR'S MANUAL OR OTHER DOCUMENTS RELATING TO THIS PRODUCT. THIS IS THE ONLY WARRANTY APPLICABLE TO THIS RECONDITIONED PRODUCT.

           

          All reconditioned product is etched or stamped with the MONTH & YEAR in which it was reconditioned, along with an “R” - Recondition Designation and the reconditioning plant location designation.

           

          Product etched or stamped with an RG09-08 or later date code will be covered by the above one (1) year limited warranty – if the date code reads RK08-08 or before it is covered by the Milwaukee five (5) year new tool limited warranty.

           

          Warranty Registration is not necessary to obtain the applicable warranty on a MILWAUKEE product. The reconditioning date of the product will be used to determine the warranty period if no proof of purchase is provided at the time warranty service is requested.

           

          MILWAUKEE does not cover return freight or labor charges associated with the inspection and testing of reconditioned product that is found by MILWAUKEE not to be a valid warranty claim. A valid warranty claim must be substantiated by the discovery of defective material or workmanship by MILWAUKEE.
