  1. upcoming grinder comparison - oztooltalk

    You guys should compare batteries based on WH rather than straight AH, or at least mention it. Using 9.0 AH is a little skewed! Sent from my Pixel 2 XL using Tapatalk
  2. Greenlee (Textron) aquires Ridgid!

    I doubt TTI would license Makita tech for a 3rd party ODM customer. It's more likely that they would continue as and scrap Makita. I would love to see the AEG line come to North America though.

  4. When is SK209G Makita Green Laser available?

    But the smaller ones are still not very good. But they are cheap and guys will buy em. Sent from my Pixel 2 XL using Tapatalk
  5. When is SK209G Makita Green Laser available?

    As much as this pains me to say, the new DeWalt rotary levels are better. Accuracy is 1.5mm over 30 Meters. Sent from my Pixel 2 XL using Tapatalk
  6. SDS Plus Bits

    You’ll be happy with Bosch! The sad part about using a good bit is that you will hate using the cheap ones. The DeWalt, Milwaukee, Makita and others will work, but they take longer, aren’t as smooth or precise. I recently had a couple 3/16” DeWalt go for a ride in the garbage because they were making the hole slightly too big. The tips were off. I bought the bulk pack of 10, 3 were bad. For what I paid for 10, I don’t mind throwing out a couple. The difference with a Hilti bit is the precision and cutting speed. They cut faster, leave a nicer hole and I never worry about my anchors setting properly. You will pay more for a good one, but it’s worth every penny. Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  7. Dewalt batteries 18v vs 20v

    The cell voltage is 3.6 vdc. 3.6 x 5 series cells is 18 vdc. In series, the amperage stays the same. In parallel, the current adds up and the voltage stays the same. Higher capacity battery packs are made up of combinations of 5 series cells, in parallel groups of 2 or 3, and in some cases 4 . Hilti uses 21.6 volt batteries as they use 6 cells in series/combinations. The voltage is 3.6 per cell as specified by the cell manufacturer. The “Max” term is used to describe the no-load voltage measurement. The 20V max description is misleading and inaccurate as the battery pack will NEVER deliver 20 volts to the tool under any load. It’s marketing bullshit. Plain and simple. Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk

  9. SDS Plus Bits

    Oh and don't waste money on the Makita bits. I dunno what the hell Makita was thinking... Sent from my Pixel 2 XL using Tapatalk
  10. SDS Plus Bits

    Hilti, then Bosch. I have DeWalt, Milwaukee, Hilti and Bosch in my van right now. The DeWalt are terrible, but super cheap. The Milwaukee are more expensive and a hair better. Bosch makes great bits, but for the same price you can Hilti. The Hilti will out cut and out last the others. Sent from my Pixel 2 XL using Tapatalk
  11. When is SK209G Makita Green Laser available?

    DeWalt owns the sub $200 laser market. Guys who don’t know any better or don’t need any better, won’t have a clue what they are missing out on. Fun fact, DeWalt doesn’t actually make laser levels. Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  12. Aftermarket Insoles

    I like Sof Soles. They are quite ridgid and have excellent arch support. I only wear composite/metal free workboots and as an electrician I walk and climb A LOT! I don't like super soft insoles, they do more damage than good. The Sol have gel absorbing blah blah blah like most, but what I like is that they do the fall apart. They are the best made for the $$$ imo. Sent from my Pixel 2 XL using Tapatalk
  13. Makita DHR400 SDS Max Cordless X2 Rotary Hammer

    If you look at the comments on YouTube, they try to justify it with a convoluted argument about how they are all flexvolt or some other BS. It was just poorly done. Period. Sent from my Pixel 2 XL using Tapatalk
