  1. New Ryobi Tools

    I like that Ryobi doesn’t seem to care about making niche tools. They have made some crazy sh!t and offer stuff I wish Makita would make. Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk

    Exactly. Bashing your competition usually drives interest in it! Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk

    I never understood why the batteries were so loose and never fixed. Seems like a simple fix for Dewalt. Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk

  5. Subcompact Recip and Rotary Hammer

    I realize it’s only the 12v CXT, but it’s close enough! Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  6. Subcompact Recip and Rotary Hammer

    Man, I should do a shoot out with the M12 and the Makita... I don’t think anyone on here wants to see me in a video though! Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  7. Subcompact Recip and Rotary Hammer

    I get it, you love to shit on Makita. The Makita and M12 fuel are the same length, weight and virtually identical in spec. (Milwaukee specs faster though). Even the M12 impact and Makita Subcompact impact spec out the same.(1st gen of course) Unlike you, I have owned two of the M12 Fuel Rotary hammers, and can speak from experience and not make stuff up to fit my own preferences. The Makita, on paper , should not drill as fast or faster than the Milwaukee, but I hate to break it to you, it does. It also doesn’t run thermo-nuclear hot like the Milwaukee does after 5-10 minutes of use. The vibration level of the Makita is ridiculously lower and it even comes with side handle and dust extraction capabilities. To be fair to Milwaukee, that M12 is getting pretty old and the 2nd Gen will most likely be a beast. Skewed specs don’t make a tool valuable. Real world use does. One tool being 10% faster only matters on paper and in marketing materials. I can charge batteries in 20 mins. (90 mins for the 4.0 Milwaukee) I can run the tool harder and longer. I have one battery now, that works for me. https://youtu.be/7StT135EXf4 Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk

  9. Subcompact Recip and Rotary Hammer

    I really like how one battery spans three levels of size/performance. Subcompact, Regular and 18x2, smart. Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  10. Subcompact Recip and Rotary Hammer

    3/8”, 1/4” and 3/16” are all I will ever use it for. It is perfect for that type of one-handed stuff. I could see the occasional small core bit. It is surprisingly good. The Milwaukee M12 Fuel Rotary Hammer is rated higher for impact energy, but I can honestly say that the Makita is better/faster. The vibration (or lack thereof) is amazing.

    That little recip saw is a beast, not much steak would be left! Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  12. Subcompact Recip and Rotary Hammer

    First impressions of the subcompact Reciprocating Saw and Rotary Hammer. I picked up these guys because I keep going back to the smaller platform. The subcompact drill and impact are perfect for my day-to-day service stuff. I decided to look at the subcompact Rotary Hammer because it seemed perfect for putting up cabinets and running pipe. This thing is tiny. Comically tiny. The design is unreal for such a small tool. The motor/Hammer completely isolated from the handle. The vibration is so minimal. It fits perfectly in the hand is almost perfectly balanced. If you want a little beast for light applications, don’t hesitate. I was about to leave when I spotted the subcompact recip saw. Holy.Sh!t. This little thing is beast. Heavy duty, ergonomic and built to take a beating. If feels like a quality tool. It’s solid. It’s balanced. It absolutely crushed the M12 Fuel. (To be fair, it is 18V and slightly bigger) It is fast and has a longer stroke length than other compact recips and the regular compact 18V Makita recip I already own. Suffice to say, I walked out with both tools and don’t regret it. Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  13. What tools did you buy today?

    I couldn’t say no... Damn they are sweet. Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk

  15. OMT outlet box cutter

    They are mostly for LV cut in rings and what not. They are a little to big for a standard cut in device box. Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
