  1. Ridgid 18v Air Compressor?

    Damn dog, great deal !
  2. Dewalt dcv584l vacuum for sander

    Far as I know it's the same as the other models, I have the other one and it sucks, not in a good way...no balls...it's ok for light pick up or some wet stuff but not much suction....really don't think it would be ideal for you....but I'm a framer and some other guys on here are shop guys......good luck
  3. new DCCS620B 20V max chainsaw

    I saw a vid on YT where a guy put a longer bar and chain on ,so it can't be to hard...
  4. Us stores that will ship to aus?

    No shit ? It happens to even the best company. I bought the DCN693 and the recoil spring was bad out of the box, but acme sent me one two days later.....just send it back,,,that's a nice little blower
  5. Picked up some acid green today

    @kato not bad being surrounded by knifes and tools ...of course you can use the knife to hunt and the tools to build a shelter. when she kicks you out ! 25 yrs married ,now divorced I bought too many tools,,lol. Just kidding...:)
  6. Makita USA new items

    How would that compare to the Dewalt compact recip saw in size , power , and vibration ?
  7. 10.8V now 12V worldwide

    The spruce lumber is cut say 2x 4 then kiln dried resulting in 1.5x3.5 but pressure treated stock is 1.625 to 1.75 wide...engineered lumber is 11 7/8" for a 2x12 which measures 11.25 kd.......a 1x 8 measures 3/4x7.25 ....not even close to 1x8.... . there are no standards, .....again it's all about education, research, not making everything to a standard for the lowest iq to understand......that's my only point.. . respect your opinion, I always love to learn new things...
  8. Flexvolt Battery Won't Charge

    Did you try to just exchange it from Home Depot or where you bought it ? If not just ship it....I never did the service center thing, but guys on here have with great results...
  9. Us stores that will ship to aus?

    They frame houses in aus.? Tools? I thought they only used knifes....lol, just kidding.....Australia has some of the greatest architectural marvels on earth...very cool buildings ,houses,....I'm big on architecture, I do frame custom homes... . Hope you guys get all the cordless tools you need ! Dewalt of course....
  10. DeWalt 20v 9.0

    Comes with 5ah in the kit...they're not gonna give that away.....Milwaukee has the deal 2/9ah and a fast charger 199...I wish Dewalt would do that one
  11. new DCCS620B 20V max chainsaw

    Ya,very practical tool,worth the wait....
  12. 10.8V now 12V worldwide

    Lumber and trim stock,lvl stock, parralam stock,,,all stock is differently measured...there is only a standard for a type of material....one must know what they are buying,. Again it goes to Not dumbing down the world,but instead educate yourself.. @dwain.not you per say...but people... . is the same for welfare, stop giving handouts and force people to work ...there are plenty of jobs always,just people choose not to do them...help yourself,help your neighbor,family,church....but don't tax me to do it,,,,,people are inherently helpful and generous, .......the USA is a gracious,giving,country which helps everyone worldwide..the people will rally together in time of need ,crisis or war....just don't force us, we will do it anyway...... . as in don't dumb it down,don't standardize,education is the key
  13. Ridgid Hybrid Fan

    Both of those Ryobi tools are good,,the better inflater is digital and box shaped...and the glue gun is great....it's a great fill in brand,,,and some of the tools hold up well, I've had the sander and router for years and years
  14. Makita DGA900 - 18v X2 - 9Inch Grinder

    I would say @Jronman it slices the flex to shreds
  15. Hilti 12v Unboxing Video

    Nice set up....bad ass tools
  16. Ridgid Hybrid Fan

    It's only bested by the new Dewalt fan...it's been number one for years...Ryobi makes good stuff, ...sometimes it makes the only tool available on the market...
  17. 18v Compressor?

    I have the rigid 1gal cordless comp...it's good, you do run out of air quicker ..it's well made ,if your only using it for a quick task , it does a good job......i also have the Dewalt 2.5 gal cordless compressor...it's night and day...much better pressure, quick recovery,..bigger tank...it will run a trim gun all day...I use it for Trim and hangers.... . very well made,roll cage, a 9ah will run all day......
  18. Makita DGA900 - 18v X2 - 9Inch Grinder

  21. new DCCS620B 20V max chainsaw

    did you you overfill...? Id just bring it back.....I've used mine all weekend and no problems...friggin love it !
  22. 10.8V now 12V worldwide

    I follow the logic , but in practical terms , two batteries from two different companies both having 162wh of energy ..Do not produce the same amount of cuts, Do not rip the same linear ft of stock....the whole engineer degree thing is great, excellent accomplishment..i am proud of you, I don't have one,but I correct the engineers that set plans for the houses I frame, school of hard knocks, masters degree.....that's all I know battery A 162wh ...battery B 172wh ...Do Not Cut Or Rip the same amount of lumber, not even close
  23. 10.8V now 12V worldwide

    I love information.....very technical stuff .....what I do know For FACT ..IS..the Flexvolt Circ saw cuts more lumber of any dimension and rips more lumber then any other circ saw or rear handle saw on the market in any country....and the soon to be released Flexvolt rear handle will perform even better then that......I don't know why, that's not my world, but using these tools everyday 10hr a day is my world..well actually I just read plans, argue with architects.meet with engineers for redesign and run the crews...but I do use them every weekend building decks.... . I think the 60v design so far is unmatched and can only get better, although the rear Makita is closer ,the FUEL circ isn't close.....and the new rear 60v will be ..as they say "game changer" ...
  24. 10.8V now 12V worldwide

    While I don't have the technical knowledge of @Stercorarius I can say I'm a Dewalt guy ,yes, but I use both brands at work. Also Milwaukee....In real world use ,the flex circ will outperform the rear handle Makita or FUEL......I only care about actual daily abuse/use of tools...I see the Makita batteries draining much much faster then Dewalt on a comparable tool, ....I see my Dewalt cordless tools working hard and lasting years... . ...I'm there to make money,not baby a tool...sometimes these test people do show one tool .seconds better, that's not any advantage......an efficient,powerful brushless motor in a durable frame is all I ask...I want the framing done as fast as possible......in my opinion the Flexvolt line of tools is ..Unmatched ...I think it's bad ass when a 60v tool at 3ah does more cuts then a 18v tool at 9ah....and much easier and faster......it's not Hype...cutting stair stringers rafters and ripping lvl stock is extremely difficult for an 18v tool...they never show those cuts on you tube just a dry lumber,cross cut.... . ...I will say the rear handle Makita is close, of course it won't be close at all to the rear handle 60v flex.................and the new Milwaukee 18v impact wrench is in a class it's own....1000ft pounds on,1400 ft pounds off...insane !!
  25. Flexvolt Battery Won't Charge

    There is a way to "jump " it ..to bring it back...it's on you tube...but I don't recommend it...listen to the guys above, just swap it out for free....shit happens, they make a lot of packs, always a bad apple somewhere or like said , the battery drained to low..Dewalt will hook you up...
