Customer Reviews

Heavy Duty Job-Site Radio is rated 3.8 out of 5 by 229.
Rated 5 out of 5 by from Awesome jobsite/workshop radio After carefully considering the other jobsite radios, I decided to go with the Milwaukee because the price was right and it has a USB plug. I can't be happier. This radio sounds like a home stereo system, the deep bass and crystal clear treble makes this unit sound like an expensive system. Athough it lacks the spare AC outlets, so what? I'm not going to use those anyway, they're more of a bragging option than anything else. One thing I'd like to point out is the new unit does not have a 12v plug on the back. Instead you get a USB plug inside the large water-tight compartment. Just wanted to point that out, in case you're looking for a 12v plug.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Very Impressed Have had this radio playing 24 hours a day, 7 days a week for over 5 years now. It hangs in a dairy barn and is subjected to dust and humid conditions and has performed flawlessly the whole time. Lesser radios fail in these conditions in a little over a year. I'm ordering another one to store on the shelf until I need it. My luck would be that about the time the old one would fail, there'd be a "new and improved" version that would be anything but.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from quality radio! Bought this radio for landscape and construction work. This radio rides in the truck/bed of the truck every day. The sound quality easilly beats the dewalt and bosch radio. A nice bit of information, we work 10 to 12 hour days, and the radio will last all day on the 18V lithium ion battery, much longer than I expected. The ipod/mp3 compatablity is great, this radio will work with anything that has a normal headphone jack, so any mp3 player, and many phones. the radio is plenty loud and the bass and trebble are both very clear. a great product, would recommend!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Absolutly Love It! I bought one of these in my first few months when I got this job almost a year and a half ago. I work at a CNC Machining company so it can get very loud in there at anytime. Every day it has played and charged my phone at almost its max volume for 8-12 hours a day and I have NEVER had a single problem with it. With all the abuse it had gone through from being dropped several times, metal shavings, small amounts of water(mostly rain), and all day use in the garage and outdoors. I absolutely love this and I have actually bought three of them since my first one, the other two being gifts. There are only two things that I did not like about it and one of them is that it cannot charge the battery pack while it is plugged in so you have to buy a charger for them as well and that there is no remote.

Rated 3 out of 5 by from Great Radio..For the first 1 1/2 yrs This was an outstanding radio for the first year and a half. I decided to purchase this after a good amount of research and trust in Milwaukee products. Guess that didnt work out in the long run. The radio worked great for days at the beach, or on the various jobsites. The bottle opener was a selling point to many friends. But about 3 months ago the unit stopped powering up. Neither a battery nor plug work. It worked fine the day before, while being used indoors. It's frustrating that the warranty from everything i've seen is only a year on them. In the end I just want the radio back up and running, and not repair costs.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from It Pretty Much Rocks. I have the Milwaukee M18 set, so it was only natural I received this as a Father's Day gift last year. I wasn't expecting a lot from it sound wise considering it is what it is (a job-site radio). However, I was blown away when I got to first enjoy it that evening with the family at a nearby drive-in theater. During Madagascar 3 I was certain the low end I was hearing was coming from a neighboring vehicle with a sound system, but I was extremely surprised when I muted it and no longer heard the bass. I can honestly say I have never heard a portable, non-jobsite radio sound this good. Listening to music on this bad boy during jobs is a real pleasure as everything sound wise is fairly accurate, from lows to highs. Everyone else is as blown away by it as I was when I first enjoyed it. Aside from looks it is hard to believe it is a jobsite radio. Plus, Milwaukee built this radio like a tank and has durable aluminum handles on all sides, makes lugging it around not too shabby. The locking waterproof/dust-proof battery and auxiliary compartment has come in handy when using it with my android phone many times, especially when sanding drywall or during an unexpected rain storm when working outdoors. Cons: It doesn't charge my battery packs, but it doesn't claim to and at its price-point I don't expect it to. The antenna can be a bit weak for distant radio stations, but if using with MP3 player or other-device no big whoop. My only real issue is that the USB charging capability is weak at 500mA max output (same as a computer). Meaning if your using your phone to play streaming music (Pandora, iHeartradio, etc.), it's just enough to keep your device alive but that's about it. Other Thoughts: I wouldn't give this bad dude up for another brand at all. Although I would upgrade to another Milwaukee if they incorporated a battery charging capability and updated the USB charging option to 1mA or higher. Otherwise, it's near perfect. If your considering making the purchase, I wouldn't hesitate for a second on buying it if I had to. Hands down the best Father's Day gift that I have ever received.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from This thing ..... ROCKS !!!! Bought this radio the other day and WOW !!! Very impressed with the sound quality. The 40 Watt amplified speakers are LOUD. I have only turned it up 1/2 way and that is too loud for my 20 x 30 family room. If you want BASS this thing has got it ! The reception is also excellent, as I am able to pick up a few stations my other radio can barely touch. If you have various milwaukee batteries ( ANY size !) they will power the unit. MP3 hook up included in the weatherproof upper compartment. I also keep my 12V cell phone charger (cigarette lighter style) in the compartment as this thing has a 12v output to charge it.. Overall excellent radio , extremely durable . Great for the worksite .

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Very nice, but... I was given this as a gift and was very excited to get a Milwaukee charger/radio for all of my other Milwaukee power tools. Charger? Did I say "charger/radio"? I was very surprised and disappointed to find this radio does not contain a charger. Just doesn't make sense. One other thing doesn't make sense either: a water proof compartment in the top of the radio to store your phone and batteries but the radio is not water-proof?!?! Huh? Otherwise, easy to use, sturdy built, and has a good sound. Hope it holds up as have seen a few other reviews where there are complaints of it dying. I have heard another manufacturer has a patent on a radio/charger combo and it's not Milwaukee's fault they are putting out a radio only. I'd like to hear more about this topic.
