  1. It was user error, I pushed it too hard. In first gear it generates huge amounts of torque, enough to snap its own neck. I've also got two cordless rotary hammer drills waiting for repairs.
  2. Err........ I'm gonna have to come clean and take this one squarely on the chin! I was using it with a dry diamond core cutter, approx 50mm diameter. She snagged and the top section just kinda rolled off. Took a fair while for that to happen, I've cored with it quite a few times. Lesson learnt though. New clamshell ordered, she'll be right as rain soon enough.
  3. Didn't buy it today, but definitely wrecked it today!
  4. They arrived a couple of days later. A DCF885 and a DCH253, I'm much preferring brushed for certain machines!
  5. Ordered a new pair of yellow drills, delivered yesterday................... just not to my address! DPD, you suck! Now the long wait.
  6. 19 joules is big in corded, in cordless it's monumental! Dewalt, give me one to try! Please! I'll make a proper vid of it!
  7. It looks like Bosch are following Milwaukee and going 18 Volts for everything? I hope they don't, their 36 Volt drills are some of the best out there! Never underestimate the power and smooth operation of a good quality brushed motor! Less electronics to go wrong too!
  8. I'm going to try and use it more in future, I'll let you know my thoughts on it as I use it.
  9. The problems I'm having are the hammer action on the M28 sds has stopped working, so that needs fixing. It's never had a hard life, never pushed beyond its design limits. The other problem is the M28 combi drill, the battery retaining clips are small and of poor design in my book. It's dropping packs, not impressive at this price point. On the subject of battery retainment, I'm finding the Dewalt sliders and Bosch 36 Volt sliders to be the best designs of all the machines I have. In other news I took the Flexvolt sds max out yesterday. Used it for some chases in masonry, a bit overkill for the task, but it made light work of it.
  10. True, that did look the case in the comparison, but the difference will be that the max will be under almost no strain at 3/4", the plus machines will be nearing their upper limit. Also, I've had a couple of reliability issues with my M28 machines of late, so I'm backing away from the brand. The Dewalt machines have so far proven more reliable.
  11. I don't own one and probably never will, however, if it can do what you ask of it with a clone battery, chances are it'll shine with a genuine pack.
  12. I've got the Dewalt sds max, 54 Volts of power, but it rarely comes out to play. Great fun when I need it though. This is the expensive route I think, not so bad if you're using the charger and batteries for other machines, still not cheap though. If it really is a rarity for you to need the extra grunt, perhaps a corded sds plus in the 5kg range would be a cheaper option for you? Hope some of that helps!
