Professional Tool Reviews for Pros


Work Site Radio Reviews

When we evaluate jobsite radios and do work site radio reviews, we include both 12V and 18V models. Some hybrid models include both corded AC and battery operation modes. Most are cable of connecting to a smart phone via Bluetooth. Some radios, like the Milwaukee M18 charging radio and the Bosch PowerBox are full-sized and designed to cover large areas. Others, like the RYOBI compact radio, take the form of smaller, portable devices. Jobsite Radios and Work Site Radio Reviews Depending on what you do for a living, a jobsite radio makes a great addition to many locations. Many job sites have been productively blaring these radios during the framing or roofing process. These battery powered radios use standard 12V and 18V batteries. Consequently, many contractors and tradesmen find it easy to add them to their tool kit or throw one in the back of the work truck. Check out our portable jobsite radios roundup for a look at some of the better models.
