    Flexvolt HEPA Dust Extractor for Tstak

    20 seconds per butt cut vs. 10 seconds? Sounds like a good trade for no dust, vacuum, respirator, or cord. Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  2. Buy once, cry once. Buy a bigger machine than you need. For most tasks, 4000 psi is plenty. You won’t save any money buying too small and then having to upgrade. Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk

    But creating no dust is even better. Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk

    Where did you guys get them? Last I checked on toolnut, they were talking pre- orders Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk

    I think in general, boots are not for protecting the tool. Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk

    sds rotary hammer advise

    If you drill that many holes and $100 is even the slightest consideration or concern to you, you might want to raise your rates. Buy whichever you like. Forget about the difference in price. Amortized over a year, you probably spend more on coffee. Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk

    wingless' DCS355D1 20V MAX XR Oscillating Saw Kit

    Dewalt’s quick release blade can’t be beat. Easy to turn 90* either way, several options between. I turn it 180* when I store it, safer. You can get cheap blades on EBay for about $2/piece. It’s a lot easier to make a cut in Hardie plank for $2 than $10. Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk

    If it has indents on the bottom, it would go great with the dolly. Tracksaw tstak on top would be great. Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk

    Fix or Replace?

    I’ve had success without proof of purchase at my Dewalt service center. If it’s only 30 miles away, wander in there and look pitiful. It worked for me. They took my FV recip saw and sent me a new one in the mail a couple weeks later. They fixed my 20v framing nailer for the cost of parts and mailed it to me a month later.

    No, I would never say that everybody here is DIY. I know there are some contractors here. There are just many more on contractor talk. I was just saying CD has specialized knowledge and needs and was looking for insight in a place where only a few posters might be familiar with his needs. He’s a deck builder who works in the weather. He wants a single platform and was curious about a less popular offering. I think he might be better served asking at the other forum. Don’t get me wrong, I enjoy this forum for info on upcoming tools. But as far as advice on tools, I don’t get it here. I might ask you, because you would be more familiar with my needs than many others here. Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk

    True, the people that use the tools are probably better described as the fanboys. I admit I am, but I don’t bash. My (one)battery platform offers all I need and performs well. Maybe “toolgeek” would be a better descriptor of many posters on here? I’m not trying to troll. I just see entire threads dedicated to subtle nuances that people who use tools for a living rarely see the need to discuss. It’s curious to me. Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk

    Haha, I am somewhat of a fanboy myself, due to the fact that Dewalt makes a cordless tool for everything I do as a contractor. But I also realize that Milwaukee, Makita, and Hilti make great tools as well. I won’t talk bad about any brand or their specs. Except for Ryobi weedeaters. But those aren’t real tools. I guess what I was trying to communicate is that city decks was looking for advice In a place that seems to be polarized and somewhat fixated on the nuances of the latest offerings, runtimes, and battery cells and where many members would be happy to have a half dozen battery platforms. I think most contractors are best served by sticking to one basic (battery) platform and augmenting as they need, hence his (former) loyalty to Dewalt and his new interest in Hilti.

    DIY? Pretty sure CD has forgotten more about building decks on the top of high rise buildings than anyone here will ever know. The only thing I’m curious about is why he is asking on this forum instead of CT. Way too many fanboys here that don’t use tools for a living. Sounds like he’s been soured on Dewalt and wanted real world feedback. People with voltmeters and specs may not be the most qualified to give it. Tools and batteries in the weather act differently than tools that live in the garage. Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk

    Track Saw T Square

    If you bought another track, you could fasten a drywall square to it. $100 mod and you’d probably end up measuring before you cut anyway. I use the clamps occasionally, they work fine. Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
