  1. There's some concern on the verbiage about the drill/driver's capacity for a "half inch spade bit," and I'm really hoping it's a mistake instead of saying it can chuck a half inch bit. If the EU nm specs I saw posted somewhere, were remotely accurate, then these 12v XRs are more capable than the current gen 2 fuel m12s. To boot, the marketing imagery for the drill shows it using a spade much larger than a half inch. Sent from my SM-G930V using Tapatalk
  2. It seemed implied that saws were getting rereleased with hooks, in some coverage around the rear handle release. They did add a hook to the original sidewinder (don't recall if it was the 20 or 60 or both) but I remember being excited at reading that it was supposed to be most saws. Dewalt, while my preferred brand, unmistakably has a disconnect with the end users, and a history of delayed and abandoned follow through. Shame. Sent from my SM-G930V using Tapatalk
  3. Just the other day, I was eyeballing a company Milwaukee deep cut for its hook on my dewalt lol Only thing I envy. The dewalt is lighter, has continued though hard use while I've seen 2-3 of the milwaukees be discarded between two companies. The dewalt hook isn't useless, but its the least efficient design, short of not having one. Does hook on the back of my tough system dolly well for transport, though.

  4. That fire panel should be on a 20amp dedicated breaker, with a backup battery power supply (usually on board) that can remain powered for 24 hours on standby, then maintain at least 10 minutes of full alarm output. Nfpa72 is pretty specific, along with IBC (international building code), and nfpa70 or NEC (national electrical code). These are covered in depth under NICET I-IV Fire alarm and low voltage signaling systems. Sent from my SM-G930V using Tapatalk
  5. But Lowe's isn't doing that. And sbd IS building craftsman, so I'm still unclear on the dug-in spite of craftsman. And this is the first I've heard craftsman considered a direct competitor of dewalt, and it obviously won't become one. There's something positive happening with a well known legacy brand, and some people are just bitter for... reasons? All I'm saying. Sent from my SM-G930V using Tapatalk
  6. The idea is restoring the brand. Hence the new factory, and marketing. Crapsman from the past decade or two would not be worth a cent to any buyer. But craftsman, u.s. made, will certainly sell a hell of a lot better than most house brands and any sub professional lines out right now. Anything is just a name, but depending on SBD's execution, craftsman could very easily reclaim its past quality and its considerable market base that quality earned it. I don't understand why people feel the need to be a sourpuss about the brand. Best case, we get a great brand back and promote American jobs and production. Worst case, a deteriorated brand stays gone. Nothing SBD can do right now could make craftsman worse than it currently is. So unless Sears laid you off and stole your pension, you have a dead relative named craftsman who's memory you feel is being dishonored, or your purchaser/ warehouse has only buying you craftsman and its killing your bottom line/production, why all the poopy pants about the brand trying to come back? If you still have craftsman stock you're worried about, you've likely got bigger problems in your portfolio than that lol Sent from my SM-G930V using Tapatalk
  7. I'm curious how it's the same size as the 6. Got to be new cells, because there's no way you're adding 21700s in the same form factor. I'm surprised this has gone under the radar, given the battery wars as of late. Ditching 18650s was broadcast by almost every brand. I still find the sweet spot on 20v to be the 5s, personally. I'll throw a 6 on the 3 speed, or the 1/2" impact, but they are considerably larger than the 4/5s. I actually down graded the deep cut band saw to the new slim 3ah though, helps on weight and seems to do just fine. Sent from my SM-G930V using Tapatalk
  8. I usually just hang it by its battery, but I'll probably copy your setup here. I like that. Sent from my SM-G930V using Tapatalk
  9. Seems a little out of left field, but cool. As long as they don't try saying they've revolutionized pipe threading, like Milwaukee did. Pony threaders are handy on occasion, but are generally a terrible experience to use, and in the best circumstances require at least a tripod to lash it down to so the operator isn't destroying the pipe or getting thrown to the ground lol Sent from my SM-G930V using Tapatalk

  11. The watts out on that thing must be pitiful. I think the inverter power supplies are cool, but I'm much more impatient for the 60v battery corded adapter. Where the heck is that? Sent from my SM-G930V using Tapatalk
  12. Nope lol I didn't. I missed a 15% off code by 4 days when I ordered my 60" ToughBox, too. Seems to be a trend with my luck lol Sent from my LGL158VL using Tapatalk
  13. Pre ordered one on acme last week, if anyone's still wondering. Acme specified end of July on shipping.
  14. Pistol grip you're describing is generally used only in high torque models and tasks. Hammer drills always come with them, and while I can't recall for sure I believe the non hammer drill varieties of premium drill drivers also come with forward handles, for their torque as well. Depending on your needs and expected usage, you can get plenty of more ergonomic, light weight, single handled or otherwise drills. Forward handle on the big premiums is also removable. I personally have my dcd996 for capability such as for auger bits and bigger hole saws, but much more often I'm using my compact dcd791or my makita subcompact drill/driver. Also to consider, the non hammer drill models are almost always shorter than the hammer drill versions. I say almost always, because I believe the gen 3 fuel claims to have the same dimensions for both the drill/driver and the hammer drill/driver. Hope some of that helps[emoji106] Sent from my LGL158VL using Tapatalk
