  1. My sys light kal II and two 6.2 ah batteries arrived. The light is ok. I would have expected a much brighter light for the $200 price tag. The light it shines is a nice light though. I would like to see a 3rd generation that is brighter to make the value of the product much better.

  2. You mentioned diy but also woodworking. If your going into woodworking you might want to look into multichuck drills like the m12 instalation driver, Bosch Flexiclick, Festools, etc. If you get into larger tools, that Flexvolt kit will be a great option because you can use the battery to power the more powerful tools. I would look into other brands in addition to the DeWALT kits you mentioned.

  4. Welcome to the forum. When DeWALT created the Lithium Ion XR power tools, referred to as 20V MAX XR in the US, they were also still actively selling their (now discontinued) 18V XRP power tools. DeWALT concluded that US customers would be confused by the similar naming of 18V XR (Lithium Ion) and 18V XRP (Ni-Cd) power tools, so the US tools are named 20V MAX XR, where the RoW identical tools are 18V XR. Long answer to the UAE DeWALT guy being correct about tools for that country being branded as 18V XR. The DeWALT DCB115 4A charger is included w/ 20V/60V FLEXVOLT kits, so it is compatible. That DCB115 charger is compatible w/ 12V MAX, 20V MAX and 20V/60V MAX FLEXVOLT battery packs. There are other chargers available that will properly charge that DeWALT DCB609 20V/60V MAX FLEXVOLT 9Ah battery at a faster rate.

  7. Careful usage of air is probably fine for cleaning the tool. Sorry for my adding to the confusion. The vents / air are probably just for the motor and the drive train / grease are probably isolated from that airflow.

  8. The Makita didn't come with a grease tube, but after checking the manual again, it does mention lubricating the bit shaft, but that's it. The "maintenance" section limits itself to saying that "any... maintenance or adjustment should be performed by Makita Authorized or Factory Service Centers." So I guess I'm technically limited only to greasing the bits and probably (?) blowing compressed air through the vents before putting it away (even if the manual doesn't say anything about that). The machine still works fine, but I wanted to know of ways of extending its life as much as possible. Thanks for all the suggestions.
