    bit disengaging on makita hr2475

    You should be able to see 2 steel balls inside the Chuck that hold the bit. These are easily replaceable.

    What will Makita come out with next?

    Nope nothing new. Just some more confirmation from and the Japanese dude leading g makita in Belgium that is coming. He couldn't even confirm me the voltage. Could be 58 or 60 or 62 or whatever. I wouldn't expect any compatability between these OPE tools and existing 18v models.

    So About Them New Batteries.

    That's most likely the only reason. Marketing. In any practical sense it's a whole new battery platform. You HAVE to buy the new 12 amp batteries to get the new tools to run as they should. And altho the 12 amps are backwarths compatible with the ' normal' 18v tools.... For pretty much all normal tools it's a ridiculous and non practical thing to be hanging a 1.5 kg battery on the tool. So claiming compatibility and keeping it called ' M18' is more of a marketing thing then of much practical use

    Ok, so what does Dewalt have up their sleeve ?

    @Framer joe So Joe, After seeing all the things milwaukee brought out on a 18v battery. Do you still think that ' 60 volt is everything and 18v can never get close ' or however you have formulated it many times ?

    Of course but that's true for every battery and charger system out there. Since it is completly un-impossible to have people compare charging times after batteries being in use ( cause everyone used them differently ) the only real metric you can compare is : How long does a cooled down battery to take to charge. And that's what charge times that manufacturer s claim tell us. Nothing more and nothing less

    Dc18rf is out in japan. 40 minutes for a full charge of 6 amp.

    What will Makita come out with next?

    That's most likely because you drained em and they were too hot. Every decent charger ( of every brand ) first cools down the cells to a reasonable temperate to charge em. Charging too heated cells causes premature wear. If you charge cool batteries that's the only time advertised charge times will be correct.

    Lol.... There are hardly any faster chargers then the dc18rd.....

    When is SK209G Makita Green Laser available?

    Yup talking about the line lasers

    When is SK209G Makita Green Laser available?

    Joe, if you just compare specs you'll easily find that the DeWalt line lasers have some of the highest lack of accuracy around. I don't know feet and inches but in millimeters the DeWalt has a possible 3 mm inaccuracy for every 10 meters. ( Compared to 1.5 for most decent lasers or even 1mm for hilti/these Makita ) So for any range larger then a living room the dewalts are way off. Can't even get them calibrated more correctly. Short ranges it'll be ok.

    What will Makita come out with next?

    Ah yep it's a different patent. I thought it would be one of the 32 different ways of putting batteries on a tools like Makita usually do in their patent applications.

    What will Makita come out with next?

    Those are just every possible way to put 2 batteries on a tool . You'll find those in most patent applications
