  1. Metabo's range of drills

    No I haven't Jronman. It will be interesting to see if that's true. My first hammer drill comparison had an 90 Nm Metabo that was almost the equal of the 120 Nm Makita. The second one had a 120 Nm Metabo that was hardly (if at all) more powerful. It will be interesting to see if this 1200 in.lbs is the real deal!
  2. What will Makita come out with next?

    lol a telephone charger ....
  3. New Metabo 18V planer

    It's been given Metabo stylings, but it does look like the Hitachi. Wonder if the changes are only cosmetic?
  4. Metabo's range of drills

    I've reviewed (and had in comparisons) 4 Metabo drills. I like them. They don't need babying, very tough tools. Having said that, they excel most in steel, which I don't use much. They seem to be middle of the pack for raw torque / timber or masonry drilling.
  5. Hitachi sold?

    it will, but doesn't become effective for 10 more months ....
  6. Makita DHR400 SDS Max Cordless X2 Rotary Hammer

    I really wish that Makita had of had their new models out already for the comparison. Unfortunately the nature of a comparison is that you'll always catch some brands with new releases while others are near the end of their lifecycle. It does feel like Makita have rarely/never had brand new releases in our comparisons though ...... need to change that sometime.
  7. Bosch in Australia

    Earlier this year Bosch pulled out of most stores. They were only going to use Bosch, Total Tools and one other. I believe this is still the case.
  8. Cordless Tool Trivia

    So you're saying that 5 oz is equal to 3 x 5 oz?
  9. Yeah it's a cracker right?! One note: usually two-cutters are actually faster than four-cutters. But they don't last as long and can't handle reo as well.
  10. Cordless Tool Trivia

    Also their new 9" grinder and SDS units are available as both 36V and twin 18V versions
  11. Cordless Tool Trivia

    Correct, you're up aessu.
  12. Cordless Tool Trivia

    OK we seem to have stalled. New question: Which brand has the largest selection of 36V / 40V Max pieces, and how many? I'm not counting dual/twin 18V tools, and I'm not talking about 4 variations of the same tool (e.g. SDS drill).
  13. Cheers Jeremy. Not quite as interesting as our drill and impact drivers comparisons, but still pretty useful
  14. Haha cheers Tug. Yeah it's a bit weird that one of their 54V rotaries would have anti-kickback and the other not. As we said, we're just going on Dewalts marketing/website. Yeah Milwaukee have great 18V SDS units. I think they'd have been destroyed by this crop though (with the possible exception of the Makita).
  15. Not according to their website ...? https://www.hilti.com.au/cordless-systems/cordless-combihammers/3509856
