Great buy one flaw
Use it on all my quick service calls I'll throw this at the front door and leave my phone on it and do what I need then I'm on my way. Only problem is Bluetooth is picky with what it reads through. Sometimes it'll go through 4 walls sometimes it won't read between me and radio I'm in love with it though!

"The best of the best!!!"
This is the BADDEST job site radio on the planet. The Bluetooth, USB charger, and AUX jack are phenomenal. It's compatible with almost everything, I am able to change my music from my phone while on the Bluetooth and while it's connected it will time out when a call is incoming and then resume when you hang up, plus I'm able to keep it charging while I'm listening to music. This job site radio is AWESOME!!! I highly recommend everyone who likes to listen to music on the job to get one of these, they are well worth it.

Excellent Radio
This is the best job site radio I have seen yet. Great sound, flexible power sources and charges batteries (unfortunately M18 only) when plugged it. I really like this radio, use if most everywhere. If it charged other Milwaukee batteries, would be 11 out of a scale of 10.

MILWAUKEE Far excceds expectations
My girlfriend ordered this after I was drooling over it on Thanksgiving day 2013. Came in the mail end of February. Have used it minimally on the jobsite so far, but this thing will fill a new house with sound. While doing drywall in new homes this thing really kicks out some tunes. The bluetooth is amazing because I can keep my phone in my pocket to take calls if needed and I dont have to move the radio unit around the house with me. Bad Mother of a radio. Well done Milwaukee. Couldn't tell you how the radio tuner works... Haven't used it.

Solid Radio with Useful Features
I've been using the 2792-20 M18 Jobsite Radio for about a month now, primarily as a radio for use outdoors around the patio/pool. I'm pleased with the performance and versatility of this device. On average I can get 6-7 hours of play time on battery power at a medium volume. The sound quality is acceptable for a portable "boombox" style radio, but as is common with this type of device, it lacks substantial bass. This limitation doesn't ruin the experience, but consumers should be aware.

Another item worth mentioning is the volume adjustment - the increase/decrease between each incremental turn of the knob makes a fairly substantial change in volume, and it would be preferable if the adjustments could be made in smaller increments. This is most notable when using the radio as you can compensate for this behavior by adjusting the input volume when using the AUX or Bluetooth modes.

As others have mentioned, the unit is a bit heavy, but not to the point of compromising portability.

Overall I'm very pleased with the combination of features and performance from this device.

How do you install the AAA batteries?? Can't seem to figure it out.... Please help!
Alanna on May 17, 2015
BEST ANSWER: There is a screw you have to take out with a small Phillips. It is in the top compartment on the left side towards the front.
Can you listen to music from an iPod with this radio?
A shopper on Nov 28, 2016
BEST ANSWER: I use a Microsoft Zune. If it works, I pretty much bet an ipod would work. This radio is EXCELLANT!!!
How much does it weigh?
Colton on Jul 7, 2016
BEST ANSWER: It is not too light but weighs enough to stay in place with other equipment in operation around the radio.
I set it down and play music from a recorder plunged into the unit.
The UPS port keeps the player charged as the radio plays the music.
The built 18 volt charger makes up for the weight in the unit.
A charged battery will play the radio a long time if you are somewhere there is not power available, I play the radio at the beach off of the battery where there is no power.

Does the radio have receptacles to plug cords into , like the Bosh . If not will this coming soon ?
Bot Flot on Jun 20, 2016
BEST ANSWER: No Plugs For 120 volt power on the one I have, a little heavy with the included battery charger.
A battery charged in the charging port will power the radio for many hours.
Good radio, the music I listen to is recorded on a portable player. The player is powered by the USB port built into the radio. Much of the time I am in the country with poor radio reception .

Does it come with a battery
Bob on May 25, 2015
BEST ANSWER: @Dennis - For being a "Staff Expert" you really botched your answer. Want to try again there bud? I know it's old but you still have bunk information for any future purchasers.

The correct answer is No, this does not come with a battery. It IS, however, a charger. It will charge your M18 batteries. I know that wasn't the question but our Staff Expert may have given confusing information.
I already have $1000 invested in M-12 products.
Is there an adapter to use m-12 batteries in this?
Also what is the actual weight of the unit.
Dixie on May 29, 2016
BEST ANSWER: I have this radio and it is good radio.
All of my tools are M-18.
The unit is a little heavy with the charge included.
I play recorded music most of the time with a small music recorder plugged in, with the included USB port the player can be charged at the same time the music is being played.
It would be better if a CD player was included in the radio. I have a few CDs I play in the truck and it would be nice to use the same CDs. I guess I need to get a small CD player that can be powered by the USB port.
I think they have a smaller radio that operates off of M-12, do not know if it includes a charger. Look at see if they still have the other radio. My son has one of the radios in his shop.
I use the small impact driver a lot and keep a battery in the charger so a fresh battery is always available when it is needed.
Sometimes the AM is a little weak when listening to baseball games. A short wire around the antenna helps sometime in getting a good signal in AM mode.

roughly how long will the unit play half sound with a 3.0 mah batttery
Josh on Apr 12, 2016
BEST ANSWER: Sorry it took so long but I gave the radio to my son for his birthday. Talked to him his weekend and he said his radio has been running about 22 hours on a 3amp hour battery and still has 2 bars left. He loves really loves the radio. Made a bracket to mount it on the lawn mower. If I go to the weld shop it playing endlessly even if I am welding on high frequency and the blue tooth is great. My son told me he would rather the radio than his new M18 3/8th impact. Good luck.

A shopper on Nov 13, 2016
BEST ANSWER: The Milwaukee 2792-20 has a built in charger and will run off M18 batteries.
Is the radio itself weather proof?
A shopper on Nov 8, 2016
BEST ANSWER: Seems to be. The device holding area at the top overlaps with a gasket inside. So, if it gets inadvertently rained on, it should be okay. I would not take it white water rafting however.
Is there an internal battery that will charge if you have it plugged in at first of course to where you can take it whereabouts without having to use a battery pack that's already charged and attached?

  • Reconditioned products may have minor cosmetic blemishes or scratches that do not affect item performance.
  • Reconditioned products may not come with all of the consumables the new version comes with (bits, sanding pads/papers, cases, etc.).
  • Both come with a manufacturer warranty and are covered by our Money Back Guarantee; New is 30 days, Reconditioned is 60 days.
