    Wright N-820 1" drive Ratchet kit

    I have spoken to Wright tool distributors. They were no help. I can't imagine any other outcome by contacting someone at corporate hq. I'm in west africa at the moment. I'll have to wait until I get back to the states.

    Upgrade to Premium Drill?

    Just pessimistic after seeing Makita's new sub-compact circular saw having a one-piece plastic for its blade guard and lever. I know sub-compact is a different market but still disappointed in Makita's choice of material for that saw.

    Why would it loose the metal Chuck ? Makita's high end have always had a metal Chuck.

    Fiber Cement on the Miter Saw?

    Fiber Cement is the generic name. Hardie is a brand name. CertainTeed also makes Fiber Cement siding as do many other manufacturers.
  7. Better to wait before rolling it out before it’s ready. Good on Milwaukie. I don’t know if I would hire a plumber that showed up with Ryobi tools. Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk

    New 3ah compact vs 5ah

    The planer also runs noticeably stronger with flexvolt batteries. I rarely need more power than a 4ah can offer but it’s nice when you’re planing something super hard to have that extra oomph. if I’ve got a grinding wheel on my drill, doing some rust cleanup etc a flexvolt battery is also nice. I’ve only got 6/2ah flex batteries, do the 9/3ah give more power, especially in the 575 saw?

    Interesting. Would have figured this as a Milwaukee release due to their popularity with plumbers. They must be doing a “soft test” after the nailer problems.

    Fiber Cement on the Miter Saw?

    Pretty much agree. Only thing I’ve been surprised by with Hardie is that it will flake apart and rot if it’s not kept sealed and painted.

    is fiber cement another name for hardiboard? The guys at work claim hardi does a bad job with high wind.
  12. Yes there is a slight bump in power on tools most noticeable on tools like grinders and circular saws. The benefit comes from the larger packs with 15 cells vs 10 cells in your 3.0, 4.0, and 5.0 packs. It has been talked about before in different topics.

    Makita plays at their own pace, they’ve never been a keep up with the joneses company, it would be in their benefit to release some lights but wouldn’t surprise me if they don’t. Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk

    New 3ah compact vs 5ah

    I run the 2.0 s in my Brad and finish guns but only 5.0s or flex volts in the framer. I love my 2.0 s. I might get a 3.0 at some point but...

    Is Tool Performance Increased with HD Battery Packs?

    Essentially every tool will benefit from the larger packs as there is a higher amp draw potential with the bigger packs even drills and impacts Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk

    Upgrade to Premium Drill?

    Few things like reduced weight, improved water and dust (current one is good but it does not hurt to be better), new LED or twin LEDs and etc.

    Fiber Cement on the Miter Saw?

    There are very specific tools out there that can cut fiber cement. I would recommend if you are doing the tool yourself to go with festool. If you are looking to have ease of installation either get with somebody who has done installation like this before or hire a professional. I myself got my siding done by conservation construction of Texas. They did a great job adding the siding for a reasonable price and my house looks brand new. I would recommend conservationctx.com but you may want to save money by doing the installation yourself. There Is a lot of money you are spending on the blades.

    Wonder what more you guys want from a drill like that? What job do you do so that you need more than what this drill offer?

    New 3ah compact vs 5ah

    I love the new compact 21700 cell 3.0ah batteries in the nailers as it offers a wider more stable base to set the nailers on. Sent from my SM-G960U using Tapatalk
  22. Long time reader... first time poster. With the launch of the HD 12.0 platform a question that has I have pondered for a while has surfaced again... Do certain tools perform better with certain batteries? We know that our tools were perform longer when when the amp hours are increased, but have Milwaukee now created a platform (with the HD 9.0 or HD 12.0) where certain tools actually perform better with certain battery packs? If so, is there a list of which tools provide optimal performance at which pack levels?

    Yeah, I am waiting for an upgrade of DDF481 (or DHP) drill. It will be probably lose the all-metal chuck though.

    2AH in finishing guns, They will run for days. 5 AH in Most other 20 V tools. FV on the 20v saw. High increase in performance is worth way more than the small increase in weight. Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk

    Makita vc3012l

    Rigid makes an affordable HEPA filter vacuum. I use it for sawdust, cutting holes in plastered walls with a grinder, sanding joint compound, etc. It works great and has really good suction for a HEPA. It is also half the price of festool.

    Upgrade to Premium Drill?

    Don't think anytime soon. It's still up there with the top dogs. I think only the new gen 3 from Milwaukee has it beat.

    Guys! When do you think Makita will release a new premium level drill now that the XPH07/DHP481 is 4 years old?
