    Forum spammers

    What do they want posting straight up gibberish? I don't get why they spend any time on this shit. I just don't get the point of it.

    DCS391 skill saw dies super fast

    Yep definitely sounds like a battery overloading situation.
  3. Well If Sara Jean Underwood is a Dewalt girl than I guess I'm a Dewalt guy now
  4. I would try to see what they say MKE is pretty liberal at times with the warranty. The aux handle design isn't the best on the Milwaukee drills.

    Well time to throw outs the MKE tools

    I used to be a huge Aots fan back in the day. Oliva Munn isn't bad looking either.

    I think they might need to add another gear to get the rpm's up with out effecting torque

    Milwaukee NPS 2018

    I think the M18 SDS max took like a whole year before it was available and the higher capacity Ryobi packs took even longer.

    Milwaukee NPS 2018

    A few Milwaukee tools have taken awhile to reach the market lately usually they got them out pretty quick.

    Recommend me a cordless drill

    Do you have any other tools besides the drill

    Milwaukee NPS 2018

    I think Milwaukee might be putting out a dual voltage product because they are running an ad going on about the M18 line and the future
  11. To get the higher amp hours in the pack they had to move to larger cells. Probably battery packs with 18650 cells will be phased out eventually

    New dewalt shop vacs

    These are more general purpose vac's while the DWV's are dust extractors they are similar but set up for two different things. I don't think Dewalt had wet dry vac's till now? It's a pretty competitive market verses Ridgid who makes a solid product and lesser so Shop Vac

    Blinded by Brand Loyalty

    Ryobi did me fine for many years the only tools that were meh was the saws. Ridgid at the time I was looking had very little in other tools
  14. It could have been worse but I can't imagine how bad that hurt!!
  15. Well that beard is stupidly long he could be a back up for ZZtop
  16. It's a common problem among all the tool brands now with 3rd party battery packs showing up on Ebay and Amazon. I guess they don't feel its worth the effort to go after them right now.

    Lowes is struggling

    Lowes seems not to be able to compete with the Orange monster lately. I was wondering if part of the problem was the lack of cohesive strategy with their tool department? I have to imagine Ryobi kills Kobalt, and PC in sales even though they try to place those brands up market. https://www.bloomberg.com/news/articles/2018-02-28/lowe-s-punished-by-investors-for-not-growing-like-home-depot
  19. The mower only runs off one battery pack. To be honest I have ran the snowblower with one battery and didn't notice a huge change in performance but did see longer run time. The one thing I hate about the snow blower is the scraper bar hits ever bump in your driveway and it wears out kinda quick.

    Some one wants to Pump UP the Jam's!!
  21. DR99

    It's a bargain

    I need some Fap OFF!!

    What tools did you buy today?

    I was thinking the same thing also at about the 4th one I think I would invest in a higher quality tool nothing crazy but just the entry level kit from any of the big companies

    Makita 18v 16ga nailer just spotted!!

    Ouch, Australian tool prices though!!
  24. It's odd the NINA tools that exist for poor Bosh users its gotta be real frustrating it takes forever for new tools to make it over

    Hitachi Power tools to be Renamed Metabo HTP

    I don't think HIkoki would have gone over well in the USA Metabo sounds more manly and tool related.
