  1. The part number for the pin detent anvil from the 2766-20 impact is 42-06-2770. It can be found on ebay typically from $50-60 but I actually just looked and there is one for $30 right now. I'm only assuming this works because the 2767-20 and 2766-20 are both the 2nd gen high torque impact and from the anvil pictures I posted above they look as though the anvils would be interchangeable but I don't know that for certain. When they released the 2nd gen high torque impacts they said that the pin detent anvil couldn't handle the 1400ft/lbs of nut busting torque that the 2767-20 model has because of the hole in the anvil so the 2766-20 pin detent model only has 1100ft/lbs of nut busting torque. I would guess that's only an issue in extreme conditions but just something to keep in mind.
  2. Milwaukee released new m12 right angle impact wrenches available in 3/8, 1/2 hog ring, and 1/2" pin detent. 220ft/lbs of nut busting torque which is a lot better than the current M18 right angle impact that has 60 ft/lbs of torque. Looks like they'll be out sometime in June.
  3. I'm sure either option would get the job done. One thing about Milwaukee is marketing likes to advertise big numbers but if its rates as a 1" rotary hammer it's pretty comparable to most other 1" rotary hammers. Hilti on the other hand doesn't advertise big numbers but for whatever reason they always win in a head to head competition. It seems they just have a really efficient hammering mechanism but you also pay a premium for it. I personally have dewalt and milwaukee rotary hammers and for how much I use them I dont see a need to pay the premium for the Hilti.
  4. This must be an error in the description. If you look in the q&a on home depot someone asked about cutting metal with the 2530 and a milwaukee rep responded that it's for wood only. Also that blade size and teeth count dosen't sound right for a metal blade but it is the standard wood framing blade size that should come with the saw. All that being said I'm sure with the right metal blade it would cut limited amounts of aluminum. It has rpms that match most 5⅜" metal blades but most metal blades have a 20mm arbor and the 2530 has a 10mm so it'll require bushings. The cons: it's probably a bit under powered and the guard isn't designed for metal so it'll throw a lot of metal shrapnel.
  5. I feel like my prayers have been answered. We used the 8" corded version for years and, while I love the 5⅜" fuel model, I've broke 4 in the last two years. They've been covered under warranty but I was starting to come to the conclusion the the 5⅜" wasn't heavy duty enough for what I was using it for and needed a different answer. This is exactly what I was looking for.
  6. Watch the first minute of this video. Not sure if this is your issue but I know I had this issue with my m18 die grinder the first time I used it. Hope this helps.
  7. Looks like Milwaukee is releasing a m18 D- handle 1" impact wrench. I'm kind of surprised this flew under the radar on here for so long.
  8. Well not exactly Milwaukee but looks like Milwaukee tools is opening a manufacturing plant in West Bend Wi. Google recommended this article to me. I don't know that it's anything real significant but just thought it might be of interest to some guys on here. https://www.washingtoncountyinsider.com/manufacturing-returns-as-milwaukee-tool-announces-plans-to-build-in-west-bend/
  9. Interesting... looks like they're stepping up their game on the compact impact wrench. I think this is a good thing but it doesn't really look like a mid torque.
  10. I've always had a hard time getting over the $189 price tag for the dcf890, I even made my own dcf886 modified with a 3/8" anvil a couple years ago. They've been around the $100 mark on ebay for awhile but when I saw one for $80 I couldn't resist.
  11. I think you'll be happy about the purchase, they're a great compact light weight tool. While I consider the m12 stubby to be more of a specialty tool, I actually prefer the dewalt xtreme as an every day tool.
  12. Without doing to much research it looks like the dt110d is just a brushed cxt 12v which in the US it looks like it would be a dt03z.
  13. It seems strange that both would have a bad battery, as it's not a common thing for a new battery to be bad. Even though its annoying I would return it and although it's a bad first experience I still wouldn't shy away from milwaukee as they do make good tools and batteries.
  14. I'm all for matching the tool and battery for the task at hand. Then again it wasn't that long ago that dewalt xrp 18v batteries were the gold standard in cordless and a 9.0 pack isn't much different in size. Personally I'm glad those days are in the past and love the new smaller and lighter tools but it might not be quit as ridiculous to others as it seems to us.
  15. Yea it's kind of surprising makita doesnt have one. Even ridgid and ryobi have one although it's really just their only 1/2" impact wrenches fit the size and torque of a mid-torque.
