  1. I don't think it's a great deal, I think there are better to be had, and I think the 3 speed is a much more useful tool. You can pick yourself up the DCF887 3 speed brushless model for the similar price (maybe with a different combinations of battery from FFX in the UK. see a quick search of their options below:
  2. I've had the DCH273 for a couple of years now, it's a good drill for doing wall fixings, 10mm etc. I also like the self contained dust extractor attachment, it's a good combination, maybe a touch heavy, but good all the same. I like the way it does not need a seperate battery. I don't know I'd want to be pushing 24mm holes all day long with it, and it won't last long if you try and core with it, but I suppose they offer bigger drills for that. I'm not a fan of the shape of the drill for chiselling, I'd prefer more of a D handle style drill for lots of that purpose. But no complaints.
  3. Have you seen the product DCB090, it could suit your needs, offers USB output from 10.8 - 20v batteries and a small price for this accessory.
  4. So this has been discussed for many years now, and despite the thought that it had been shelved by Dewalt, looks @coupleatools has a working prototype. I wonder if Dewalt were involved? Credit to @coupleatools on Instagram, few more pictures on his channel.
  5. Fantastic news, I did not want to invest in another battery platform with the 10.8v batteries. Just hope we see this outside the USA this year.
  6. So I see that not only are we starting to see ToughSystem 2 in the UK, but I see advertised TSTAK 2.0 as well. One interesting addition, is the TSTAK Clipboard with LED light 😄 https://products.dewalt.co.uk/storage/productdetails/catno/DWST82732-1/ Other than that, the TSTAK 2.0 range just looks to add IP54 rating to the boxes and improved stacking clips. https://products.dewalt.co.uk/storage/productdetails/catno/DWST83344-1/ https://products.dewalt.co.uk/storage/productdetails/catno/DWST83343-1/ https://products.dewalt.co.uk/storage/productdetails/catno/DWST83395-1/ https://products.dewalt.co.uk/storage/productdetails/catno/DWST82968-1/
  7. I'm thinking of buying the 18v cordless mitre saw. I tried it out when it was first released, and it was tidy, it's got good reviews, but it's been out for about 3 - 4 years know I think. It was always confusing why dewalt released a US version which was different to the International version, but anyway. I'm invested in the 18v platform, and already have a big 718 saw (predessor to the 780). just nice to have something more portable and compact for the smaller tasks. Apart from the price of dewalt tools in the UK increasing over the past 6 - 9 months, has anyone hard any buzz of whether a new version of this saw might be on the way? Ideally a brushless one. It's probably the only thing the old one did not have.
  8. This looks like a bit of a mean bit of kit and cordless too. Limited market, but nice to see some new tools coming through at last. Through tool dust extraction is nicely integrated. https://products.dewalt.co.uk/powertools/productdetails/catno/DCE800T2/
  9. I bought a belt hook for my old 355, and whilst it had the hold on each side, it was missing the nut on the back for the belt hook to screw into. Not a big deal but you would think if the moulding had the hole, you would think they would put a nut in as an option for people to add the belt clip. Small price.
  10. Just researching these new Tough System 2 boxes, and quite dissappointing first video I've found with a hinge design issue? I'm a dewalt fanboy, but as others are complaining, they are just falling behind right now. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=ivqVGxR9ILs The same chap has found another issue as well with Tough System 2........ https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=yIhl6Y9u6D0 I think Dewalt need to offer this guy a job in their engineering/testing department....... Have they just rushed this to market, or what? Video Credit to the original YouTube guy
  11. I've a DW718 saw (previous model to the 780) which I've only used for DIY over the past few years. Never had a reason to change the original blade until today. When out in America last summer, I picked up a 96 tooth Diablo blade with the intention of cutting some aluminium with the saw. Problem is today was the first day I took the blade out of the packaging, and I've just realised that it has a 1" bore, and my saw has a 30mm arbor. I'm scratching my head, is the new blade just fit for eBay, or is there some genieus way of fitting a blade with an alternative arbor/washers? I'm currently searching the house for the instruction and potentially any spare washers/spacers which might have come in the box originally? I note that if you flip the arbur, it has what appears to be a 25mm inset, however the blade is too thin, and won't clamp tight when you secure the centre blade bolt. Any ideas or adaptor kits you know of? Paul
  12. shame this new 4 port charger/inverter whilst it locks onto the top of a tough system box, it does not have the mounting rails?
  13. Could this be a Dewalt PVC cutter to save me having to buy the red version? Looks like a real selection of new tools at the end of todays TIA radio video.
  14. Appears another oversight on this wall bracket, there is no central ability to lock your toughsystem boxes onto the frame, like you can with a padlock on the trolley. I can see you would want some added security, no matter how small if you are storing these in a van overnight or a garage?
  15. Anyone have experience with Dewalt aftersales? Checking their website, there is not a service centre for 50 Km from my home. Despite there being a dewalt reseller who repairs tools a mile from my house. My 18 month old (DIY use only) DCF895 Impact is playing up, It's like when the battery is flat, the lights come on but the tool does not work. I've changed the battery, it's not that as the batteries all work fine on my other tools. It's a really annoying intermitant fault. sometimes it works fine, often when I have the drill on it's side it decides not to work. Really let me down the other day on a job, completely dead, 2 days later thinking now it's not working it will be eaiser to diagnose, but I picked it up again, pulled the trigger and it works 100% fine. errrrrr…..I just know when I send it for repair they won't find anything wrong. logic says it's a dodgy trigger, direction switch, speed selector switch or a wiring issue, Anyone else have issues with this tool?
