  1. DeWALT is introducing a new 20v max battery called Powerstack that foregoes the cylindrical cell system for a flat pack design. It will be available later this year. Here is a good read about it on ToolGuyd. https://toolguyd.com/dewalt-powerstack-battery/
  2. I have 3 of the regular wall racks setup and haven't had any issues even after a few years of use. Swapping out the plastic for metal just isn't needed in my opinion.
  3. I ordered the 2021 Wera advent calendar. I also got the new Knipex twin grip pliers.
  4. Yeah. Tough System 2.0 was a step in the right Direction in many ways but I think at this point Tough System the biggest issue with Tough System still lies with the mechanism for latching boxes together. I would keep the side handles to retain compatibility with Tough System Wall Racks but change the lid latches to be more like Packout.
  5. interesting. I think they make some things for Festool or used to.
  6. I have seen guys use this thing with rollers attached to a long pole with a slippery fabric connected. they push the roller up the roof then the snow slides down the fabric onto the ground. It might be an option. Also you could try a power broom. There are handheld options and options that look almost like a snowblower.
  7. @David London Battery powered equipment has come a long way. I currently use an Ego single stage snowblower. Runtime is good enough. I use it to make money in the winter. I don't even own a gas unit but I also have more Ego batteries than the average person. You won't likely run out of charge on your property unless you have a large amount of snow. In that case you would want a 2 or 3 stage snowblower. I want to say you could get 2 driveways of 2 car widths done on a single charge with a couple inches of snow.
  8. Milwaukee has announced plans for NPS and/or Pipeline. It is not looking good. They stated we will get neither in 2021.
  9. I have the m12 installation driver and I like the Eccentric driver from DeWALT better. It has a locking collet vs the m12 only has magnetic. I would like to see if the DeWALT chucks fit the m12. They look like a very similar connection system.
  10. interesting. I hope other SB&D brands switch to DeWALT batteries
  11. The residential battery stuff can't compete. If you look into commercial battery equipment you might be surprised. You can get one that has 600 cfm and runs 90 minutes straight with max output enabled. Not going to out perform your more powerful backpack blowers but it should compete with the mid power blowers.
  12. I bought a couple spare ego commercial trimmer heads. I found out they are compatible with the powerhead string trimmer. Super awesome because the quick reloading heads on the power head break quite easy. My last residential head I started using this year and it already broke. The commercial one will last quite a bit longer. I have yet to break the commercial head after heavy use.
  13. There is also Metabo Metaloc which fit within the Systainer/Makpack system
  14. No other regular impact driver is shorter than this. you would have to move into right angle impacts.
  15. DeWALT is releasing a new Impact driver with essentially the same specs as the 887. According to the specs sticker on the tool, it has a bit more ipm but otherwise the same specs. The biggest difference is the size. The tool is now 4 inches from back to front. So small that the battery sticks out farther than the chuck. Shortest impact that I know of. In my search I found no impact that was as short as the DeWALT. The tool has xr branding but apparently it is an atomic tool. The picture shows no Atomic branding. It was pictures of a European model which might have different branding than North America. Travis from Tools by design made a post about it. https://www.instagram.com/p/CSzaFkxnWVw/
