    What will Makita come out with next?

    Totally hear what you're saying, as most applications the charge time probably isn't relevant. However, depending on what you're doing... I.E. demo, treated cutting, etc., it could come into play. Most people don't want buy more batteries at $100.00 apiece... so I can see this argument both ways.

    Why Milwaukee? Why Not?

    Concur. Most of my woodworking tools are all Makita or DeWalt. I see that Milwaukee is getting more involved in this trade, but I probably will wait until second generations come out. In terms of 12V... I don't think that there is a real comparison on the market right now. Milwaukee, in my opinion, is head and shoulders above the competition. However, with Makita's 18V subcompact line, you could just stick to one lineup and have various sizes, etc. FB82

    Why Milwaukee? Why Not?

    I have been buying Milwaukee tools for roughly five years, however, I am also not naïve enough to think that they make the best in every tool category. I think they make solid tools overall, but there are still improvements that need to be made, in my opinion. Depending on trade, I would encourage someone to really look at what they are going to be using the tools for. If you are a woodbutcher, I would probably do with DeWalt. MEP, probably Milwaukee.

    2x20V lawn mower

    This look cool. I apologize for asking, as I am sure that someone else already has.... but why wouldn't they make this a 60v? I get that you can use the batteries, but in terms of optimal power wouldn't that be the way to go? FB82

    Interesting on the jig saw(s). I guess I want to see them reviewed first, as I get that everyone is excited on the forum, but with the new models hopefully they got their electronics right and everything is as good as advertised. FB82

    Big event coming

    I have not read the posts... has anyone seen the tool lanyards? The rep showed them to me, it seems like a good idea, especially for overhead work.

    Big event coming

    Yeah, I agree. It looks as if my rep wasn't lying with most of the stuff he told me. The testing should be interesting.

    Big event coming

    From my reliable source. Not sure if all of this will be released now, but this is what he was chatting with me about. 1. Table Saw 2. 1/2" impact wrench 12V 3. New Circular Saw (non worm drive) 4. New Sawzall 5. Pack out with drawers? 6. 12amp battery

    Have also heard about a M12 impact wrench

    From what I have been hearing.... a 12.0 battery and a new circular saw. The performance with the battery should increase, obviously. Table saw too? I have been hearing about it, but Milwaukee isn't known for their woodworking stuff, so maybe this is a start? FB82

    Wow...Milwaukee Vs SnapOn

    Odd, to say the least.

    Makita USA new items

    Looks awesome. Probably need to get an upgrade myself, as my Makita Miter stand is junk, in my opinion. Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk

    Milwaukee packout

    Not sure on how it can be a game changer, since storage that can wheel and is removable has been out for a while. However, I will say that they have a few ideas that are unique. I’m agreeing with previous posts... the price will drop for the holidays so they can get people to buy them... then they’ll get people hooked. With that, just like any new tool/system, they will adjust accordingly with demand and hopefully add/subtract what they need so their system continues to improve. I don’t think it’s an awful buy, but I’d personally wait until the price drops some. Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk

    Milwaukee packout

    @JimboS1ice, yeah I can see a few negative to it for working, depending on your needs. I know a few of the things I read said that people didn't like it because it didn't have drawers? Which makes sense, but on the other hand I think your tools are safer from the elements in this system because of that fact? I could me wrong, but just my initial thoughts on that particular comment.
