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.

I admit that I often work in silence on my “indoor jobsite” – in front of the keyboard – since I assume the words come more easily that way after the testing is complete. But I think I’m in the minority since many of us, regardless of jobsite type, prefer to have some kind of […]

Midland BizTalk Business Radio Review

Last week, Midland officially announced the Midland BizTalk Business Radio as a solution better suited to jobsites and office buildings. I have a set of Midland X-Talker radios that I’ve been using for outdoor applications with plenty of success. Those have a range of up to 38 miles across water or open terrain, but that’s […]

Ridgid Gen5X Jobsite Radio with Bluetooth

Ridgid Gen5X Jobsite Radio with Bluetooth

I am a believer that music makes the day go by faster. Put on some head banging 80’s hair band, country, or techno and many guys will tell you that when you raise the beat the work pace will increase. A radio should fill the area with sound, but it should not inhibit communication (This […]

DeWalt ToughSystem Music + Charger Bluetooth Radio Review

We get really excited about cordless jobsite radios here at Pro Tool Reviews. Part of that comes from the fact that music and talk are an absolute must-have whether we’re out testing the tools or sitting in front of the computer writing reviews and editing photos.

Ryobi 18V Compact Radio Review

It seems we just can’t get enough technology these days. Now that our smart phones are capable of streaming the music we really want to hear, Bluetooth speakers are in high demand on jobsites. If nothing else, most will at least let us take an auxiliary port to make use of Spotify, Pandora, or whatever […]

DeWalt Bluetooth Adapter Review

When we did our Jobsite Radio Round Up a while back, we discovered that the Ridgid had the best sound quality of the group. I actually went with a more updated version of the Ridgid Jobsite Radio when it came out last year. It featured the same sound quality with a couple of design tweaks.  With […]
