  1. Thanks dude.. exactly what I needed. I came to the same conclusion somewhere along my research that the xdt14 was going to be my first makita impact, somehow my brain became overwhelmed with the stats, lol. I tend to look at powertool specifications and analyze them to much that I get lost and my mind goes on a tangent. Lol... the xdt14 is what I am going to aim for. If you are saying a "local dealer" had them got 80 over the holidays, the $112 price that HD has it listed is and $92 that Amazon has it listed are a little high and I believe still have a good chance to shave of a could bucks, obviously I missed out on the holiday deals and I should not expect 80 bucks but if I can get the bare tool for under 90 than that would make me a happy camper. I'm not in a big hurry so I'll wait another week and hawk tool websites..
  2. Hello.. I'm in the market for a new impact driver. I am on the "yellow brand" battery platform but they have really been slacking lately. So I've wondered off to other brands. I really like what the new xtdz16 has to offer but without any batteries, the kit is going to be more than I want to spend. HD has the makita starter pack with (2) 4 ah batteries (charger and bag) at $149. I figured I I purchase that from HD and buy a bare tool impact driver. This way I have (2) 4 ah batteries.. I plan on building my wood working hobby cordless tools using makita cordless. The 4 ah batteries would be perfect to go with my future purchase of jigsaw, router and planer. May you please recommend what makita impact driver you would purchase if you were me?? I would like to stay below the $120 level. I value ergonomics, power, speed and noise level, in that order Thank you..
  3. Greetings! After years of being strictly "Dewalt only" I recently took a peek at the Milwaukee power tool line up, Milwaukee impressed me so much that I decided to add a secondary platform, I decided to go for the m12 because of the stubby and the ratchet wrench were what luredme over to Milwaukee. So far I have the following: 1. M12 hackzall (brushed version) 2. M12 3/8 ratchet (brushed version, originally i wanted the fuel version but came across a deal the i could not turned down, not only was it priced right but it came with 2 1.5ah batteries that game me the opportunity to build my m12 battery collection) 3. Voltage continuity tester. 4. Automotive led light. *** items 2, 3 and 4 were part of a kit priced at $199, came with charger and 2 1.5 ah batteries. I am waiting on a good stubby/battery deal before I pull the trigger. Preferably one with a high ah battery. Next on my priority list is another one handed saw, I love my brushed m12 brushed version but I need something a little more higher. My immediate thought is to go with the m18 fuel hackzall which I am really trying to avoid going to the m18 platform. I am wondering how much more powerful is the m12 fuel hackzall than the my brushed version. Does anyone have experience with both the m12 brushed hackzall vs the m12 fuel hackzall? Feedback greatly appreciated!
