  1. Why would you put the hoist hangers directly into the concrete? Isn’t a ledger board better and to code? I can’t see putting hundreds of anchors into a small area of concrete very sound, structurally. Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk

  3. That’s not entirely true. The popularity of 12v tools with tradespeople contradicts that. There is a market for both to coexist. Having 2 tiers of battery size makes more sense than increasing the size and weight of all tools for the sake of a few higher demand tools. Eventually OSHA will regulate the size and weight of cordless power tools. I laugh every time I see guy doing trim work with a M18 Fuel Impact and a 9.0 battery. Sent from my iPad using Tapatalk
  4. Exactly! I have a separate packout parts containers for my wire nuts, mc/bx connectors and anti-shorts, splice parts, low voltage, machine screws, fasteners, and tap cons. I wish Milwaukee would have streamlined the cases a little, make the foot print a little smaller and lose the wasted space from the pointless corner aluminum. Sent from my iPad using Tapatalk
  5. I use Packout, TStak and Ridgid. Hands down, ridgid is the best overall. Tstack is very light-duty. Packout is well built, but oversized for what it can actually hold. The best part about Packout is the storage containers! Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk

  7. For us Canuks, the Hilti pricing has been the same. Even Home Depot used to sell the M12 Fuel impact/hammer drill kit for $249 retail. It recently went up to $299. The bare tool and combo kits are creeping up. Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  8. Man, every time I look at Milwaukee, the prices keep going up. They are officially more expensive than Hilti now. I am in Canada so I am assuming it’s worse in the US. Looking at Hilti 22v, the bare impact is $169. The Milwaukee Fuel M18 equivalent is $199. I was looking for some 12v compact stuff and the M12 Fuel impact / hammer drill combo was $299 CAD, with 1x 2.0 and 1x 4.0 battery. I got the Hilti 12v Impact, hammer drill, light and recip saw for $420, with 2x 4.0 batteries. The Hilti 22v rotary hammer is $349 CAD, the Milwaukee Fuel M18 is $379 CAD. What the hell? I get Milwaukee is popular, but they aren’t worth that much. Hilti warranty still decimates theirs. I guess they are trying to make up for all the free shit they have given away over the years!

  9. Stabila. Empire is good, but you have to check them before you buy. I have had to exchange a couple that read completely different from one side to the other. Avoid Milwaukee. Even though TTI owns empire, they didn’t share the quality. Sent from my iPad using Tapatalk

    Kind of cool!

  11. If it’s a brushed drill, the trigger switch. If it’s brushless, then you may need a new controller. The fact that removing the battery resets it sure sounds like a brushless still! Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  12. Get the Hilti hard case. Sent from my iPad using Tapatalk
  13. Lol, it’s fake! Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk

  15. Gotcha, a bandpass style enclosure could help. Sent from my Pixel 3a XL using Tapatalk
