  1. DHP 482...

    I bought a 10.8v Makita Driver last week and while its been great (& compact) for light work... It has since proven inadequate. I'm going to mount a bike rack to a concrete column & some tensile cables to hang curtains (don't judge me...) into concrete & the 10.8v is not up to the job. The sales guy informs me that a 12v with hammer action in the same size will be in tomorrow, but TBH, I'm better off with an 18v. Most of my needs are around assembling furniture and mounting stuff to walls, but I need one drill that can do everything... What's the consensus on the Makita DHP482? It's not brushless & I believe it only comes with one battery (3ah), but I'm an occasional user, so not putting it under much pressure. Don't focus on the price... The market is limited where I live, so we don't have much options. Also, I have to buy from Ace, because I need to return the last drill. It does come with a decent set of bits... I suppose the other option is DeWalt. https://www.aceuae.com/en/ace-uae/makita-dhp482-hammer-drill-driver--75-drill-bits-969480#pdp_box_img_1[pp_gal]/0/

  3. I'm planing on buying a drill, impact driver set, not sure what to get.also not sure if i want a full sized set or a compact set. The main thing is the price...I would like it to be under $150(or cheaper). For $100 on amazon there is the hitachi compact 12v set, and at menards the bosch 18v set is on sale for $140. Any suggestions?
  4. I need your help guys help/thoughts. I am working on my workshop right now installing electrical and a bunch of other things. I need a 90° adapter for my Milwaukee drill & driver (fuel). It seems like there's two good ones out there...? The Dewalt or Milwaukee... which one to get? The Milwaukee one is metal & the Dewalt one is plastic, but I've heard a lot of good things about the Dewalt one in the past. what do you think I should get and why?? I need to get tomorrow or next day.
  5. I was wondering if there is any way to see what "version" of a tool you have based on the serial #. I have a M18 fuel drill/driver combo kit (the 2897-22) and purchased it about 2 months ago now. I think this kit has been out for over a year now. I was reading on another forum they have made new versions/variations since my kit was first released. for example i was told the newer ones have all the electronics inside sealed in silicone. ...are the drill & driver exactly the same inside. if you were to get it today vs if you got it the day it was released? or are there dif versions/builds out there even thou the model # is the same.
  6. I picked up a M18 fuel driver/drill combo and took off the belt clip and extra bit holder. These will fit all M18 drivers and drills. Brand New and never used. If you do not have a Fuel set, you drill did not come with the belt clip and neither your driver or drill came with the bit holder! -- Looking for $8 each. Belt Clip + Screw: Bit Holder:
  7. My Makita LXDT04 lost the ability in the trigger to control the speed so it has an excessive high speed only. It also goes in the wrong direction, right is left and left is right. I have 2 others but it would be nice to have a 3rd. What part do I need to replace? Brush? Trigger? I have no idea.
  8. Ok so after looking into this more i am super confused by the packages at Home Depot! I noticed that the price for the drill & driver combo kits changes almost daily! Last week alone the one i got went from $199 to $169 to $249....what. And i was just looking on the site and some other threads and started noticing a lot of dif things. This is the normal package - Model # 2691-22 - Home Depot link: https://tinyurl.com/j8ylb8y - This used to come with a free flashlight, but now its only when you buy online and not in store... The is the kit i got 2 days ago, the day after it does not come with the free $50 flash light! - Driver: 2656-20 - Drill: 2606-20 Then i noticed this one (notice the belt clip on the driver is different & its $60 more) - Model # 2697-22CT - Home Depot link: https://tinyurl.com/zfbd22x - Driver: does not tell you... - Drill: does not tell you... ....and there were a few more I will post when i find them. Can anyone help?
  9. This is New today... My drill no others do this. The 18v batters has a little play front to back, but what is bothering me is the play side to side I can move it side to side about 1/8".... Anyone else have this issue? Normal? Note: added short video in post below.
  10. What fits in Milwaukee 2897-22 Case

    I have the Milwaukee 2691-22 kit here is a link to info: https://tinyurl.com/han4ne2 I saw a empty case online for $25 for a 2897-22 M18 fuel case. Here is the info to the fuel kit, this is the case: https://tinyurl.com/hbf3wpm My question is does anyone know if my stuff will fit in this case? Mine came with a soft bag for the case and it sucks. Please help me if you know or have the case at home to try. Attached are pics of the case i want to get for my tools...
  11. 2604 M18 Fuel is dead

    Hi there ! I had an issue with my Milwaukee M18 Fuel 2604 From time to time it's not in operation. When you plug battery it works as it shoul - but if you leave it for a while - this is completely dead. Rotate chuch or move switches, shake tool will not help. One moment - when it hot tool will likely work longer with no issues. But when it's cold it will have highter chances to stop working. Only one solution to back his to work - to switch battery. I tried with different battaries - same issue. Cleaned all relevant contacts outside and inside with toothbrush. Use spirit to clean all I can touch with no luck. Anywone had same issue or idea how to fix?
  12. Help to choose my new impact driver

    Good morning guys, I'm about to get my first impact driver to work with wood and concrete. i need your advice because I don't know which one will be better for me, between Makita XDT01Z and Makita LXDT06Z... the XDT01Z it looks powerful just let me know if I`m right. the Makita XDT01Z and the Makita LXDT06Z
  13. Pros: Fast charge, long battery lifeIncludes extra batteryLifetime battery replacement programDecent torque - haven't had a problem with any screws or drill jobs yetIncludes bagSize & weight are convenient Cons: Hex chuck - only works with hex bits. Rockwell includes 3 special hex drill bits to compensate.You can buy a $20 chuck attachment if you insist on only using this drill.You'll definitely need a normal drill as well - I use this one for quick jobs and driving only It appears very expensive on Amazon - $116 on 6/25/15: http://amzn.com/B004U4BAI8 I bought mine for less than $50 at Costco about a year ago, and I'm happy with it for that price, but probably wouldn't be for $116.
  14. Hey All, Up for sale is a brand new, unused, Milwaukee M12 Fuel Drill driver..
