  1. Concord carpenter just posted a YouTube video on it. Looks pretty sweet. Good run time and great for the job site if you don't do much routing. Low price for what you get. Sent from my SM-G903W using Tapatalk
  2. Canada sucks for pricing. What more can I say hahaSent from my B15 using Tapatalk
  3. Thanks for the feed back guys just went in tonight to look a little closer and turns out the large medium and small are $99, $59, and $39 respectively so I'm not sure I wanna spend all that on them all. They had a deal where if you bought the large and medium you got the small free. Which is worth it. But its still pricey Sent from my B15 using Tapatalk
  4. Would the large box hold a circular saw and other tools like a recip saw? All in the bottom? I need something that can hold tools I don't use a whole lot at the bottom and more used as I go upSent from my B15 using Tapatalk
  5. I just saw these at the local HD in Canada here and was wondering since they are about $100 cheaper than the dewalt counterparts, how much can you actually fit into the large, medium, and small boxes respectively? I have a circ saw, recip saw, jigsaw, drills, OMT screwdrivers, hammers, chisels, pretty well anything you can think of. I have a Milwaukee 26" toolbox now and have the majority of tools I need most days but I could always keep some more in an easier way to move them as well. any thoughts would be appreciated thanks!
  6. I set up my dewalt box with kreg screws and plugs but it is the smaller box so there wasn't that much room. I don't use pocket screws all that often but at least I've got them when I do. I've been seriously looking at the ridgid cart system for the past month, its actually got some neat stuff in it for storage and I think for my job it would be great to carry everything I would need in a regular job on one stand Sent from my B15 using Tapatalk
  7. I have used about 4 of their tapes, I prefer the straight 16'. I have one get a knick on the blade and after continued use it finally ripped off one day. That's the worst I've had happen. I love their finger saver thing under the tape. The older version tape. My next go to is a kobalt 16' its small and compact and easy to read with a similar fibre blade on it which is less reflective and easy to read. Sent from my B15 using Tapatalk
  8. Canada or US? There's a huge price difference between us haha Sent from my B15 using Tapatalk
  9. I forgot about the lights! But again price could be an issue... If they have a price point of anywhere near $180 I'd be okay with it. Considering the 5.0 are at $150 here at the local HD. Sent from my B15 using Tapatalk
  10. i would put a 9.0 in a fuel skilsaw, or the sawzall, I don't have either tool yet but if I was going to get them I would buy a 9.0 for them. I have 2 2.0 and 1 5.0 for my fuel impact and drill I use the 5.0 in my drill for when I need a bucket of 20 minute drywall mud or a bucket of tile glue... I can mix about 5 buckets worth on a full charge which is a lot better than the 2 I get with the 2.0 ones. the 9.0 would mix any bucket I needed in a day but if I mix more than 5 buckets I would pull out the cord and a mixer drill. I like the cordless for quick use, where I need to go from mixing a bucket to drilling holes for drains or vents. and even plumbing. the 5.0 lasts me a week with a full charge most cases. so going to the 9.0 for me right now would be pointless. however, the circ saw or recip saw would be able to make the choice easier on the 9.0
  11. Depends on what you do by trade, but I would love to learn to weld, get a better education in carpentry (just starting to get into it now) and I would love to learn how work with metal better aside from the welding part. Sent from my B15 using Tapatalk
  12. I have the bosch 12v drill and driver right now, I was liking the looks of these makitas, but they aren't much more compact are they? would the switch be worth while? probably not at this point...
  13. Always good to get the combo, drills are good for some things and impacts are good for others so get more of the same batteries to keep your options open for expanding Sent from my B15 using Tapatalk
  14. Here we go, been keeping my eye on the makita and Milwaukee but I have no makita stuff yet. The Milwaukee just came out so I'm hesitant to spend the money on the first model.... Now this with brushless makes me feel like I really should wait to see if Milwaukee switches their to either brushless or fuel on their next model. It's not a tool I need right away since I have the makita corded version but it is a handy tool to be cordless for the one off uses Sent from my B15 using Tapatalk
  15. I bought a dewalt pouch, I've bought stuff from Lowes and I padded belt I put suspenders on mine because I don't use it all that often and I don't have any girth to keep the belt where I like it. But all in all I use a drill holster instead of a separate hammer holster since I use a drill alot too. I like the one big bag with the 2 smaller attached to the lip so you have 3 pockets of screws/nails. But then padded belt was my best investment Sent from my B15 using Tapatalk
