I have an opportunity to buy a Milwaukee threader for 50% off. It’s been used lightly for one year. Has anyone tried it out? I’m guessing it’s not as heavy duty as the 700 but I do like the idea of cordless.

I have no clue about it,I would guess it would do ok up to 1”,but over that I’d say it wouldn’t thread very long

So you're going to go through the hassle of dealing with a tri-stand and an oiler BUT running an extension cord is just too much trouble?

How often are you threading one or two joints where running a cord makes it that much more of a pita? I could understand if you're fixing a bent cur stop or yard hydrant in the middle of a field it would be nice, but at that point just use a hand threader for the one joint.

I can't imagine this cordless threader is cheaper than a used 700. And surely this cordless threader is a lot of plastic versus an all metal 700.
