    @CityDecks...i don't know what brand would sink that many 6" lags ..200-300 in high heat, Definitely not the 877....maybe bump up to a mid torque wrench or HD impact wrench..... .....we use t40 flat head 5-7" lags (fastenmaster) into 3 or 4 or -5 ply engineered lumber beams...with the 899...no problems..... .....I can't see any impact driver doing that for long... gotta be an impact wrench......love to know how it works out for you...

    Interesting Drill Comparison

    PTR is a joke...they're paid by some brands ( sponsored) but not others. Big Dewalt haters. Watch OZ tool talk or Skill builder, workshop addict , real tool reviews...for real tests....

    @CityDecks...wow if your using the Dewalt dvf899 ,3 speed impact wrench..and it's getting hot driving tapcons ,never heard of that. We use the dewalt sds max drill to drill 9" x 1/2" holes 90-120..then We drive 1/2" x 8" Titan bolts into concrete foundations about 90-120 per house , with the 899 impact wrench...gets warm but never hot, it's about 2 years old.....we use it for many applications...like driving 8-10" truss locks ,flat locks, into quad or 6x ply Engineered lumber...no problems so far... Maybe where you are ,is extremely hott?

    new cordless sander // DCW210B

    Can't wait to get mine,been a long time waiting for a dewalt...got the cordless Ryobi and Ridgid for work already ( being retired) and the cordless Festool for the shop... Tool Boss has a review on it, it looks comfortable and powerful...

    Gotta be the roof top heat....I have dozen of flex 6 and a dozen flex 9 and 4 flex 12...no problems with the batteries at all. Use them 7 days a week framing ,in all weather....since they came out. @CityDecks why are you using flexvolt batteries on an impact driver? Way to big and unbalanced...a 5ah or 20v 6ah at most is all you need...we don't put more then a 5ah on a drill or impact... If you like the Makita rear handle ,that's cool....but we have 3 of them and noone uses them,way underpowered and awkward balance.... nothing comes close to the POWA of the dewalt 577....best cordless/ corded saw ever made... ..The new Milwaukee HD circ is underpowered also,bogs down and is the physically largest 7 1/4 I've ever used, it's ridiculous, huge motor..

    Never seen these batteries

    Saw these at Lowe's. Never saw the number 4ah on a battery or a 2ah...don't look like larger cells, just a new sticker? ....a pic of the old style and the new package...

    Brushless Impact Wrench...shouldn’t one be coming soon?

    P238 ? It's out...
  14. That sounds better then flexvolt, I definitely want the 36v / or ac 10" sliding duel bevel mitre saw.....battery or ac for.drills,circ saws, etc...that sounds " game changing" if the power is there... Another battery platform ,ouch...
