    Makita 4 in 1 drill

    Neat idea, but i dont see myself using one. Heck, I have two impacts, rotary hammer and a drill. Two impacts for when Im using more than one knd of fastener.

    What will Makita come out with next?

    Even if its one of the fastest, its still too slow

    Makita needs bigger batteries and faster chargers. Current 5Ah ones take ages to charge on DC18RC/RD.

    USB charger

    Wouldnt trust the cheapo one. Theres just something about the combination cheap electronics of questionable origin/quality and lithium-ion batteries (which can explode/burst into flames) that makes me take things super cautiously.

    Are trimmer attachments universal? XUX01Z

    Again, I dont have any experience with these, but usually anything thats cheap and says "universal" on it, is total garbage. Also, if a store anywhere near you has one, go in and check if a universal attachment fits.

    I dont know about the attachments, but keep in mind that you need two 18V batteries to run a 36V tool. So atleast 4 18V batteries and a dual charger to keep them running for any real work.
  7. Even the 5Ah ones are fine, to be honest. Its just once you get used to something, you always want more. If the new batteries with bigger cells cant fit my current tools, thats kinda a reason. Kinda.

    Fess up to your latest bonehead mistake

    I was cutting the inner walls with a circ saw at about 1 meter from the floor. Somehow the depth adjustment came loose and I cut into the main electrical feed for the house. Didnt even realise for 2 days, because 2 of the phases coming in were still working.

    Milwaukee NPS 2018

    Man hope they dont come up with anything game changing that makes me regret going with team teal. I have like 3-4kâ‚Ĵ worth of Makita.

    Milwaukee NPS 2018

    Whats NPS? Google didnt gave any tool-related results.
  12. Been kinda lazy shoveling snow this winter. Luckily I have a rotary hammer. About 10cm of compacted snow and 15cm of ice under it at the worst spots.
  13. Man, Makita coming out with these new batteries will give me "reason" to replace my DHR264 (XHR05) with the upcoming DHR280. Even though with two twin chargers and 8 5Ah batteries I have no problems chiseling all day with it.

    SDS Plus Bits

    Bosch and Makita bits with 4 cutters in them work really well for drilling.

    What tools did you buy today?

    Stanley Tylon 8m tape measure and a set of Cobit german made impact bits.
