  1. Past hour
  2. You really think it costs Dewalt much more to make the yellow charger? I doubt it.
  3. Today
  4. I bet you’ll end up using it more than you think, we’ll definitely up your face frame game Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  5. It's definitely a tool that isn't needed but very helpful and time saving. There are still plenty of times were I will make traditional mortise and tenons (like on my dresser build). It helped a lot in panel glue ups I did previously. So I am looking forward to that. Sent from my Pixel XL using Tapatalk
  6. They aren't putting that much thought into it. Dollars and cents my man. Cheaper slower chargers keeps the kit price down in the range they feel is best to sell. Sent from my SM-G973U using Tapatalk
  7. Perhaps Dewalt figures a person with a blower is just going to charge at end of day and leave overnight, so a slower charge would be healthier for the battery.
  8. Pretty sure it was both 20 and 60v sass sadly mine didn’t come with one Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  9. Once you go to the 4 port even the single yellow chargers become obsolete
  10. There's nothing decent about Dewalt trickle chargers. As Bremon says if it's not yellow, it's garbage.
  11. It seemed implied that saws were getting rereleased with hooks, in some coverage around the rear handle release. They did add a hook to the original sidewinder (don't recall if it was the 20 or 60 or both) but I remember being excited at reading that it was supposed to be most saws. Dewalt, while my preferred brand, unmistakably has a disconnect with the end users, and a history of delayed and abandoned follow through. Shame. Sent from my SM-G930V using Tapatalk
  12. Just the other day, I was eyeballing a company Milwaukee deep cut for its hook on my dewalt lol Only thing I envy. The dewalt is lighter, has continued though hard use while I've seen 2-3 of the milwaukees be discarded between two companies. The dewalt hook isn't useless, but its the least efficient design, short of not having one. Does hook on the back of my tough system dolly well for transport, though.

  13. How much is that fan? Looks really nice Sent from my iPad using Tapatalk
  14. Jealous Sent from my iPad using Tapatalk
  15. I don’t understand why dewalt never put one on to begin with Sent from my iPad using Tapatalk
  16. Yep. Till you shutdown the substation powering it! Or replace an ATS, etc. Electrical infrastructure replacements in hospitals are a pain!
  17. Yesterday
  18. Yet a kit on sale while reselling the battery and charger generally represents a much better deal than a bare tool. All Dewalt chargers that aren’t fan cooled at this point are basically obsolete jokes.
  19. Thanks. Weight was one reason why I was looking at the 10". At the rate I'm ageing I'll be down to a handsaw, pencil and hammer soon.
  20. Sorry to hear they bludgeon you so hard on batteries. Oh and to what you were talking about with the weight of the Dewalt 12” already being a lot... This Makita is being listed at 70lbs (32kg) with batteries, not much different from that Dewalt. Even the 10” is supposedly like 60lbs (27kg). The 7.5” (190mm) is only 29lbs (13kg) though.
  21. Here is indeed New Zealand. We seem to get royally ripped on most powertools compared to overseas but it seems that's especially so when it comes to Makita batteries. On a few occasions I can find a bare tool roughly the same prices as overseas, but not often. My concerns about the thin kerf 12" blades isn't when ripping a board as we'd do with a table/track saw, but making bevelled mitre cuts on thick or dense timbers (as many of our native timbers are) that might be 8" or more wide. I'd be very keen to start seeing a few more reviews of the 12" cordless model after people have spent some time with them. People seem to like the 10" model.
  22. Hi, new user. I found a CMI CDD1018PT8 battery drill a few days ago and it doesnt work. I want to check if the electromotor still works so i can just buy a new battery otherwise i wont bother. It's got an 18V motor. Thanks in advance
  23. My thing is if you end up with enough different tools in the collection, that you end up with a couple of decent chargers and larger batteries. So which battery, or which charger my next purchase comes with is not super important. In fact normally I try to just by the bare tool to save money.
  24. Picked one up yesterday. Took a pic to show how it compares in size to the others. It's the longest with the previous 60v next, then the 20v. The thing moves a ton of air and feels more balanced and less bulky than the previous 60v one.
  25. That fire panel should be on a 20amp dedicated breaker, with a backup battery power supply (usually on board) that can remain powered for 24 hours on standby, then maintain at least 10 minutes of full alarm output. Nfpa72 is pretty specific, along with IBC (international building code), and nfpa70 or NEC (national electrical code). These are covered in depth under NICET I-IV Fire alarm and low voltage signaling systems. Sent from my SM-G930V using Tapatalk

  27. Ha! Sometimes. Old hospitals. Life safety circuits such as exit devices, fire alarm control panels, BAS systems, partially powered security systems, nurse call control panels. Never know 100% what’s been put on what circuit/panel during countless renovations since the ‘50s. These things are a.... “life saver” (sorry couldn’t help it...). Real “life support” (not life safety) medical equipment typically has an included battery backup/UPS that will maintain life support for minutes or hours depending on the equipment and age. I would have had to rethink using these if they were discontinuing with cause. In all honestly, 75% of the time it’s powering some doctors fridge or a computer/printer/copier that just “can’t” go down... I will say it has prevented abandoning several outages due to someone’s “unacceptable unforeseen outage” and has saved its own cost several times over in temporary power provisions.
