  1. God knows who thought it was a good idea.
  2. https://www.makita.co.jp/product/category/syuuzin_buroa/vc261dz/vc261dz.html It was announced in October last year.
  3. You really need to have a word with yourself if you're expecting a tool to be transported across the globe and still be accurate.
  4. They don't signify anything other than you are not in drill or drive position and infact, in limbo.
  5. Yet my drills aren't burned out.
  6. It has a 5 minute duty cycle so it's never going to be intented to inflate air mattresses. Adoption rate in this instance is irrelevant, when you said it should have been 18v it would have been to increase performance. You either want it or you don't.
  7. You should look after them better or buy something that's better suited to the task.
  8. What sort of features? Why is 12v a mistake?
  9. If by toggle you mean latching, It isn't. It's momentary. In other words, hold to run.
  10. It doesn't need one. The DeWalt is huge and the milwaukee is boxy and designed around the M12 battery, of course the makita is considerably more compact. Did you know well seasoned artists can draw to scale without a tape measure? Also, I can't understand the point of the trigger. Should be able to set it and start, I really don't like the idea of having to hold the trigger for it to run.
  11. I cram as many bare tools as I can into Tloc cases and stack them in a site box. Batteries stay in a storage bin in the house. I can't afford unnecessarily wasted space.
  12. Delayed where? They're on the market in the UK. https://www.ffx.co.uk/tools/product/Dewalt-Dcb548-Xj-5035048706794-18V-54V-Xr-12.0Ah-4.0Ah-Li-Ion-Flexvolt-Battery-Pack
  13. I think that's very optimistic. When you look at companies that rely on battery technology with a massive amount of money to spend on research and implementation, you can get an idea of where the rechargable battery market is. So almost right away I thought of two companies. Nasa and Tesla, primary being Nasa. They produced a report last year looking at future battery capability for upcoming space missions and they're currently all based on lithium. There are variants, but the most commonly listed base is Li-Fe-PO4 (Lithium iron phosphate) and of course Li-I
  14. Motor controller transistor. The one currently installed in the drill should have a product code which you can search to find a replacement. They're quite cheap to replace. If you have continuity at all three points it most likely is faulty. It doesn't have its own item code on the spares catalogue, however.
  15. Shouldn't think it will be far away, it's no out in AUS.
  16. I must have been imagining it then.
  17. Depends who's lifting them or how (crane/forks) but I mean structural metal deck roofing. There are a number of different brands with a wide range of gauges depending on load rating and span. Most common one is Euroclad but I know Tata Steel do on, countless other brands. Some are 0.5mm + powder coat, some are 2mm + powder coat. https://www.bimobject.com/en/tata-steel/product/roofdek-d153 www.euroclad.com/roofs/structural-decks/
  18. With the ability to interchange connectivity there are many arrays possible to work with 36v and 18x2 tools the same but it will be putting out 36v not 18v so this will have to be accounted for with the X2 system.
  19. Looks to be a dummy battery for both types that connects up to the back pack.
  20. So on closer inspection it's not an inverter per se - certainly not like the DeWalt inverter. It's a 2+2 36v battery pack, purely to power 36v OPE with an increase run time but transferring weight to make it more comfortable to use over longer periods.
