  1. Dewalt does not need to improve on the 12” mitre saw...its spectacular. The festool is not better just not jobsite worthy...they do need a double bevel 7 1/4” mitre saw..
  2. You should be buying Ryobi for house projects. Absolutely no need to buy into any other brands for just house projects. That would be a waste of money.
  3. It lights a large area, no Bluetooth....I own it, but prefer to use my 2 m12 rockets, just easier to store
  4. Got it, broke it...cheap ones are just as good
  5. @OldDominionDIYer..m18 sucks for framing,remodeling...no where near the power of flexvolt. Not even close. Yes they made tools but they are not good....Milwaukee for plumbing,auto, hvac,,yes..great tools
  6. Returned the m18...sorry does not compare to the tough system gen 1...nowhere near the bass..or sound quality....
  7. @reddawg60...erecting metal buildings using a impact? Dude, we have tons of steel in our custom homes and no one is using compact impacts..impact wrenches are for Hd work. A compact impact { driver, as it’s called} is not used for that..it’s intended for screws and small diameter , short, lags, truss loks, timber locks,etc...try using the correct tool for the job.. ....you must be part of the vcg gang...Milwaukee is a joke for framing...you should be using All impact wrenches...

    Framing gun

    @paulengr...for framing new homes, no...for remodeling,yes..been using my 4 cordless guns for 3-4 years building decks everyday..no problems and cordless is a must on new construction, no power..or use a gas compressor, no thanks.....
  9. 4 Dewalt framing guns, 4 years now? Over 200000 nails, never rebuilt, still beasts....I will try the Milwaukee when it comes out...
  10. @Jronman..Dewalt....make....a premium level mitre saw? Are you serious? Do you know that the Dewalt mitre saw out sells every other mitre saw combined.? It’s on every framing crew and remodeling crew and finish company I’ve ever seen... Hitachi used to make a great 12” mitre saw.. Festool has great dust collection,but cuts no better then Dewalt. Metabo HPT ? Seriously...your watching too many sponsored videos...
  11. Buy the 791..and be done for the next 10 years
  12. No need for an updated planer, it works great
  13. No way it’s the saw twice....
  14. Good looking light...but hate wobbles...the smaller one is sweet
  15. @Jronman...never said Dewalt beats everyone..at everything,,,but..please tell me what tools beat any flexvolt tool except the sawzall???? As for 20v tools , every tool challenge I see has Dewalt 1 or 2 ( or top 3...which is usually their older 887 or 791)..heck even the 996 is still one of the best. The 20v planer, sander, router, grinders, oscillator, etc. are all top 2... I actually have more money in Red then Dewalt, but I stand by my statements. Dewalt engineers great tools that stand the test of time..they don’t have gen 1,2,3,4..every year. As a framer they are all abused everyday. Along with makita and Milwaukee... For yourself and Diy guys any brand will do. But not for professional builders. As I’ve said if I was a plumber I’d buy all Red...fabrication, all Metabo...and Makita is just damn good at everything and has the best impacts.....but you can see for yourself all these companies changing battery platforms to keep up with flexvolt. Milwaukee just decided to forget flexvolt and jump to “ corporations “ large industrial work..because the 72v line is clearly not meant for regular construction, framing, remodeling...no builder is buying that stuff. But maybe industrial sites would. Elec companies, not sure... Fan boy? Is it a fanboy if you have less yellow then red, and a boatload of teal. it’s about business, what gets the job done the fastest.and lasts. Definitely not about batteries, cuz yellow are ridiculously priced compared to red...but teal doesn’t have large ah batteries yet.(6ah Max) so that limits makitas cordless line.
