  1. Isn’t LXT around 225 Tools currently? Subtract the two dozen impact drivers and M18 and 20v Max are firmly in the same territory.
  2. Their 2.5 40v basically IS the 18v 5.0; even down to the 18650 cells, why would we expect it to be much heavier? The 21700 batteries will be the only ones worth a damn imo, the 2.5 will be a joke like the FlexVolt 6.0.
  3. Don’t even want to know what the sticker says on a pack that has 40 3000mah 21700 cells in it lol.
  4. Last I heard they weren’t interested in making a 10” 120v Max table saw with a larger table. Maybe the MultiVolt will light a fire under their ass.
  5. I guess I should ignore the superior power I get from my FlexVolt tools with 15x 21700 cells compared to my Makita tools powered by 10x 18650. 20x 18650 isn’t too bad but let’s get real. 21700 has a number of advantages over 18650.

    DeWalt 20v Mower

    I have the mower as well. No complaints with 9.0s and dirt monkeys video was worthless. Like swathing a field with a mower.
  7. You really think they spend a red cent more than they think they have to to maximize value for shareholders? Even if it only costs $0.5 more than a 115, then they charge $10 more MSRP and the beancounter and marketing math shows that the $10 higher price point sells X amount fewer compared to the value proposition a competitor has assembled, which results in X missed sales, revenue, profits, etc.
  8. Yet a kit on sale while reselling the battery and charger generally represents a much better deal than a bare tool. All Dewalt chargers that aren’t fan cooled at this point are basically obsolete jokes.
  9. Summer availability for USA and November launch for Canucks if memory serves. Piques my curiosity for a compact 4.0 as well.
  10. This beast may yet replace my X2 Makita. Curious to see Canadian pricing when it eventually makes its way North. Deals can be had with enough patience so it may be a while for me yet.

    Dewalt outdoor

    The last part of your post better describes Milwaukee. In the meantime they offer OPE on 3 platforms, and offer no edger while Milwaukee offers no mower. Can’t please everyone I guess.
  12. Is this an ironic joke post or are you serious? You’ve never ran a mitre on a site? You’ve never dealt with cords on a site? You’ve seen people work on one site for decades? You believe cordless tools don’t have more power than corded at this point? Your post is irrational.
  13. Likely still coming. The one that was previously mentioned was a prototype of memory serves so it didn’t give me the impression it was an imminent release; just in the works.
  14. Pretty sure these chargers are still passively cooled which is pretty bizarre if true. Hopefully I’m mistaken.
  15. Had one and sold it. Even the gen2 Milwaukee is better. This new one might have a shot at taking the crown from Ego and Makita. The 60v is good compared to the little dust blowers that all brands seem to have clones of. Probably. The OPE kits are generally 400+ CAD. Some occasional crazy deals pop up though.
  16. Sacfasteners on IG posted a teaser of a new blower coming out May ‘19. In-line design. 600 CFM apparently. Interesting battery placement. Hopefully way better balanced and lighter than the current FlexVolt blower, which is pretty poor in my opinion.
  17. One of my favourite Dewalt tools. Got the hog ring version; sold off my Fuel high torque and mid torque. The Dewalt has plenty of power, and the modes on it are perfect for my usage; larger fasteners and lugs, shocks, etc. on my truck. The bizarre looking nose cone helps get into odd spots, as does the angled battery placement compared to the Fuel.
  18. And seeing as I’ve never seen a CXT tool on a site I can’t imagine many people getting one. 18v would have been another story M12 and 20v Max are fairly ubiquitous which makes their inflators a smarter choice. Not to mention I already thought the M12 duty cycle was poor; this Makita is even worse.
  19. Like a high volume mode to inflate air mattresses, etc., and not using a trigger. 12v is a mistake because the adoption rate for 18v LXT compared to CXT is probably in excess of 3:1.
  20. 18v with more convenience features would be a home run. 12v is a mistake.
  21. It’s getting hot because it’s a brushed drill that’s working it’s ass off. Next step if this isn’t working out for you is buying a decent impact wrench, or buying a gas augur and spending more time fishing.
  22. My 6.0 XR are Japanese. They have the worst buttons. My 3.0s are Korean. Crap buttons and the packs themselves fit tools way too snug. My 9.0s are all Japanese except one is Chinese. The Chinese one is the newest and seems to have the crappiest button, but one Japanese one has a trash button as well. Seems like a crapshoot thanks to a bean counter design.
  23. Dewalt batteries have the worst build quality of the big 3 for sure. That said, they’re usually the cheapest. The release mechanism is straight up trash compared to M18 or Makita. Makita has by far the smoothest engagement, so they feel premium despite the plastic housing of Makita feeling the cheapest. Never had a problem with the M18 mechanism either, and like the rubber overmold. I have Dewalt tools I have to fight to disengage batteries from, and my 3.0 compacts need to have the slides sanded down because they’re slightly too wide; it takes a ridiculous effort to pull them off some tools like the inflator (while the XR6.0 and flecvolt 9.0 slide on and off fine).
  24. Plenty of plumbers can tell a story about a big right angle drill giving them a kiss when it binds. Add a ladder to the mix and multiply the fun. Doesn’t take much to hit a nail and have your drill let you know about it. The handle on my 996 is pretty pathetic for leverage. The 791 doesn’t come with a handle at all. Prior generation Milwaukee handles weren’t al that difficult to break off. Gen3 Fuel and the flagship Makita are better in that regard though.
