insane: AEG a.k.a Ridgid in the US is made by the same parent company to Milwaukee, just a notch down. My good friend who runs a construction company swears by them, his crews use them and he has a set himself.
If the budget allows that could be a good option for both now and later, and perhaps you could 'borrow' them from time-to-time.
Personally I've gone all in on DeWalt, got my first heavy duty hammer drill and impact driver set from i-tools.co.nz 5 years ago and expanded to saw(s), router, nailer(s), garden tools etc etc over the years. When I need the next thing I just find the cheapest price online in NZ, and head over to Mitre10. They beat the price by 15% which is rather crazy, but suits me!
The tools are for an 11 year old. DeWalt stuff is way overboard and they could get the full range of diy tools for the price of a single dewalt (might be slight exaggeration but not far off), plus the dewalt stuff has way to much power for an 11 year old.
