    Highest drain tools

    I run 5.0 in my rotary hammer drill/hammer drill/recip saw, 2.0 in my service impact and lights. I like light and portable for service, big batts for all day use. Sent from my iPad using Tapatalk

    Makita ELM3800 lawn mower want start

    Multimeter is your friend. Test your switch, conductors etc. The deadman switches are prone to dirt etc. Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk

    Makita Battery cell 20700

    It is directly related. The space around the batteries would appear to support a larger pack. Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk

  10. I like paying someone to do it. I sure as hell can’t do it in 20 minutes. Mechanics need work too, support your local economy! Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk

    Time Off?

    When I work, I work hard. When I am home, I relax. (I try to...) I don’t do side work. I couldn’t if I wanted to. My other half sees me relaxing and takes it upon herself to find things for me to do. Isn’t that nice of her? Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk

    Flexvolt track saw

    I didn’t know the handle was so wonky on the Dewalt. Good to know. Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk

    Self Tapping Mode

    I use Tek mode for metal electrical cabinets/enclosures, fastening to decking etc, and it works. It does what it’s supposed to. Cam out mode is for wood, is it not? Sent from my iPad using Tapatalk

    Problem with New M18 2737 Jig Saw????

    They set weird precedence. They came out with so much so fast and rather then slow it down a little, they seem to want to introduce 100 new SKUs every 6 months. Instead of Milwaukee base layer tee shirts, markers, levels, heated gloves and lunch boxes, how about you make really good quality tools with a 3-5 year refresh? Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk

    Brushless multi tool

    One of the things I love about brushless is the precision that the electronics provide. You just can’t beat the versatility of a brushless impact with tek mode and variable speed/torque. As an electrician who does does controls and commercial, I am always using the various torque and speed settings. I agree 100% about the utilitarian tools being brushed. More cost effective, easier to repair and better for harsh/wet/debris-laden environments. I would imagine that someone will create a better brushless tool, with some way to better cool and seal the unit from dust/water. The only issue there is that it would even more expensive. Given the rapid model changes and upgrades, it would be so hard to commit to any brand without fear of missing something better. Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
