  1. Subcompact Recip and Rotary Hammer

    Hitachi nailers look ace tho
  2. Subcompact Recip and Rotary Hammer

    If only they'd bring out some quality battery nail guns
  3. Makita DHR400 SDS Max Cordless X2 Rotary Hammer

    4 Batts in total with 1 double charger would easily keep you running all day then right ? 1 set on the charger, 1 set on the tool. I'm getting the dhr400 second week of March.
  4. Adding an m class filter doesn't make it a legal m class vacuum. HSE would still not let you use it. The DeWalt power bank thing is not coming to EU for legal reasons.
  5. XSL06 36V Miter saw Crown Stops

    Never had to order them for a customer before sorry !
  6. Ow oops I totally knew that. Brain fart Thank jronman ! Indeed the new 20v Max/6ah is the better idea !
  7. In a brushed motor absolutely totally correct. Modern brushless motors not so much
  8. There is no larger w/h potential. Thats an illusion. The only limit is the actual size you wanna make your battery. A flexvolt 54v/2 amp battery is thesame size as a Makita 18v/6 amp or a Milwaukee 18v/6 amp. All three of these batteries have 10 cells, thesame capacity of 108 watt hours and thesame psysical size. Manufacturers can as easily make a 54v/10ah battery as they could make a 18v/30ah battery. Both those batteries would need 50 lithium cells of 3 amp each , both could have exactly thesame psysical dimensions and both batteries would have 540 Wh of energy available. Now I agree we'll see the larger power demanding tools on higher voltage platforms. But that not out of technological limitations more because people believe that a 54 volt tool would be vastly superior to an 18v tool ( altho real life proof and my explanation above shows otherwise )
  9. Sub Compact Jigsaw

    Have to say I do sell quite alot of Jigsaws. Think about thesame number as I sell circular saws
  10. Well you're thinking the wrong way there. Voltage doesn't matter all that much for modern brushless tools. There's a bigger marketing advantage then a power advantage in going 54v ( like flexvolt ) or 58v ( upcoming Makita OPE) . Modern brushless tools hardly give a fuck about what voltage they are getting. The total capacity/total energie your batteries have in more important and a better way to compare modern batteries. Makita 18+18v ( gonna take 6 amp batteries as an example ) have a total capacity in watt hours of ( 36v x 6amp ) 216 Watt Hours. DeWalt flexvolt is 54v * 3 amp ( remember it's 54v nominal and not that 60v marketing ) which gives us 162 Watt Hours. Milwaukee uses a 18v 9 amp battery which also gives us 162 Watt hours. Unfortunately it's not as simple as I have said above because there's a few extra things to consider: higher voltages ( like flexvolt ) give you some percent efficiency advantage. Bigger lithium cells ( like in the flexvolt 54v-3ah ) can cope with higher loads alot better. And the Makita setup has 20 lithium cells that share the load where the Milwaukee or flexvolt setup have to share a load on 15 lithium cells thus improving efficiency under load. TL;DR As it currently stands I believe Makita and Flexvolt to be able to provide thesame performance in runtime. Makita from a higher capacity and more cells. DeWalt from higher voltage and bigger cells. Milwaukee's Max output is a tad behind.
  11. Only available info is a 58v battery. Starting with a trimmer/brush cutter and a dual battery backpack blower. More is not known yet of upcoming Makita OPE platform
  12. New Sander

    Not at the beginning. Only the normal batteries for now
  13. AWS Tools

    Not for now no I'm hoping on either a Bluetooth battery, a Bluetooth add-on that goes between the tool and battery or either a small button that you can stick on the hose/tool that activated the Bluetooth vac with a button push
  14. AWS Tools

    Very strange indeed. In the Netherlands the plunge saw with AWS has been available since a few days
  15. Track saws

    Yeah of course I used both' ! I had to test the cordless when it came into my store Honestly the corded will suit you fine the cordless can just be pushed a little faster while still getting excellent results. If you are not bothered by the cord, no reason to pay extra then
