Which power tool brand to buy?

i am an electrician and im looking for power tools to use at work. i was thinking about either porter cable or dewalt, they both have the tools i am looking for but i keep hearing dewalt is better for work and porter cable is better for home, is there a certain reason for this? at the moment i do plan on... show more i am an electrician and im looking for power tools to use at work.

i was thinking about either porter cable or dewalt, they both have the tools i am looking for but i keep hearing dewalt is better for work and porter cable is better for home, is there a certain reason for this?

at the moment i do plan on getting: impact drill, cordless/corded radio, recip. saw, circ. saw, and possibly more in the future.

i would also like to know if there is a benefit to NiCad or Li-ion in my situation

Thanks
