  1. 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.
  2. 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/
  3. 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.
  4. 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.
  5. 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.
  6. 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.
  7. 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.
  8. 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.
  9. 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.
  10. What's the deal with pricing on these power stations? I bought one two years ago now and it was a good deal but it was $199 for the bare tool. If I remember right they were supposed to be $400 but were pretty easy to find for $300-350 at that time. The other day one showed up in an ad for acme and it's now $500 for the bare tool. I know dewalt tools took a small price increase when the tariff stuff happened but to go from $400 to $500 seems like a pretty big jump.
  11. I actually picked up the dcf880 on a black Friday deal with a free battery and then I had to take advantage of an end of year deal on the dcf894h.
  12. Could have possibly meant to type "slam"? I have the gen 3 drill driver 2803, it was pre ordered and I've never had that particular issue. But sometimes when switching from forward to reverse the drill will still spin forward after the switch is flipped to reverse. Where this can be a problem is when you're drilling into metal and get stuck so you throw it into reverse to back it out and it still goes forward ripping the drill out of your hands. If you release the trigger and hit it a second time it will then spin in reverse. It just catches you off guard. What I think is happening is I'm not fully releasing the trigger but it's enough that the mechanical switch can be flipped but the electronics aren't switching. I've never experienced this with the gen1 or gen2 drills though.
  13. -Brushless 1/2" compact impact wrench. For the life of me I cant figure out why they still don't have this tool in brushless. -60v metal cutting 5³/⁸" circular saw. It could be a different blade size but that seems to be the current standard. This is another tool they don't currently have in brushless and they would have a real market advantage making it a more powerful 60v tool.
  14. Yea I know in dewalt impacts a 3/8" anvil is a direct swap with their 1/4" driver anvil, but the 1/2" anvil is bigger much like with what you found with the milwaukee. I would still like to see an updated m12 2553 with the 3/8" anvil. The old 2454 is pretty slim but it's also pretty long. I've looked at trying to build one myself but I don't think there's a 3/8" anvil that would be a good fit.
  15. That's a pretty sweet modification. I'm actually kind of surprised milwaukee hasn't released the next generation of m18 compact impact wrenches. But when they do I expect it to look very similar to your mod. After having the stubby for a while I have found that I still use my m18 compact wrench more. The fatter stubby has a hard time getting square on nuts and bolts in tight corners. I wonder if a 3/8 anvil off a 2754 would still require the nose bushing to have to be bored?
