    I need a drill with guts

    SDS, or rotary hammer, drills don't have rotational torque, it's just not part of what they're about. Any high voltage combi drill will almost certainly have the gumption to do what you're asking. Just be sure to get one with anti-kickback, your wrists will thank you!

    What tools did you buy today?

    M12 spotlight, 750 lumens, very bright!

    Milwaukee radio quality

    Got the M12 radio a few months back, no Bluetooth, but good reception and sound quality. Runs for a good two days on a 6 Amp pack, but that depends on volume. Compact size and does have a 3.5mm Jack for mp3 etc.

    Dcd996 bites the dust

    Large steel bits are so much better on low speed, they cut far more efficiently. Running them at high speed kills the bits and the machine! Slow it down.
  5. Referring back to the heat comments, I've had my M28 brushless so hot it was uncomfortable to hold! Never cut out though!
  6. I have the Dewalt Flex and love it, superb power. Runtimes are a little short, especially on the 2/6, but noticeably better with a 3/9, so can only assume another huge jump from the 4/12. For what I do, the 5" is just about enough, but would like to see a 7" version released. Look forward to the vid, you guys work well in these comparisons.

    Milwaukee NPS 2018

    Some nice kit in there! The petrol chainsaw didn't seem to be throwing much dust, maybe they gave it a blunt chain?
  9. I would go direct to manufacturer and explain everything you've explained here. I did this with a pair of Milwaukee V18 packs and they did replace them, night and day difference with the replacements.

    Inflator sounds very interesting! The UK might have them by 2020!

    So any new tools coming soon?

    Charge rate on the radio? Is it a smart charger that alters the charge current to suit temperature and pack capacity?

    Tug smash!

    Ineffective hammerdrilling

    SDS all the way for concrete, the job's done in seconds and your ears don't bleed! Even the awful Ryobi sds will put small fixing holes in concrete, and that machine's woefully under-powered! Ideally you want above 2 joules of impact energy.

    M12 gen 2!

    Love my gen 1 combo set, beautiful machines. Doubt I'll upgrade due to budget, but good to see innovative ideas bearing fruit.
