Packed with power and performance along with unmatched smart features
This kit is a contractor’s dream, packed with performance and smartness. I have been using Milwaukee tools for hardscaping and never thought their tools could get any better since they are the best to begin with. But this kit takes the Milwaukee engineering to a whole new level.
The build quality, performance and ergonomics are top class. XC 5.0 batteries last a long time and charger refills them quickly.
**CUSTOMIZABLE USING ONE KEY**

in this kit are blue tooth enabled, customizable per job/material type using ONE KEY mobile app. The app is free, requires a free login, super intuitive, no learning curve at all and communication with the tools is lag free.
There are 4 buttons at the base of each tool and each of those buttons point to a predefined setting profile. I can define multiple profiles and assign them to the relevant tool to fit my needs. With such precise options, I have full control over torque, rpm and kickbacks.
So what is this profile? Well, that’s where you define the operational specs of your tool that can be loaded by pressing just one button, for example, if I press Button#1, I want my drill not to exceed 600 rpm and be without kickbacks, keep the work light ON with 50% brightness and so on so forth.
There are a lot more configurable settings making this tool kit not just Jack but Master of all trades.
What I love the most is that ONE KEY app keeps track of the last location it communicated with my ONE KEY tools which is teamed up with google maps, so I can actually see the exact street and building where the tool might be. So if I ever accidentally leave my tool at a work site, the app sure will help me pin point where it last communicated with it. That is super cool and I am loving it.
Also, I can mark ONE KEY tool as missing, the app keeps track of what’s missing. If the app finds the tool in NearBy devices, it sends an email notifying that the missing device has been found.
I love the inventory feature offered in this app. I have been adding my Milwaukee/Non-Milwaukee tools in this app and it is greatly helping me in keeping track of them. Each tool is assigned a category, a location, a person and for large setups one can run simple reports to track who has what at what location.
To use the inventory feature of ONE KEY, your tools could be of any brand and any type.
**THE ONLY PROBLEM**
There is one button just behind the numbers (1-2-3-4) strip that I press to load a certain profile. Once the button is pressed, the number is highlighted. When I am working outdoors, it’s very difficult to see which number is highlighted. I have to completely cover the number strip to see selected option.
**SOME RECOMMENDATIONS FOR THE APP**
I would like to assign tools per project and that’s what I can’t do in this app. I am trying to use location for that purpose but in situations where I might have for example two projects in Washington DC then the location doesn’t fit right for tracking.
Also, if I want to assign 4 tools to a person or a location, I need to go inside each tool individually, there is no batch or multi-select option where I could select 4 tools and assign to John.
The tool kit is packed with power and performance along with unmatched smart features. The app is very intuitive and requires no computer skills. It is worth every penny, disappointment proof so buy it with confidence. I absolutely love this kit and highly recommend it.
