  1. it should be, almost every brand miter saw with same blade diameter uses the same motors slide or not
  2. Ohhh, bummer! That's news to me. Well may still have to get the vacuum and hopefully they will make a tstak toughsystem adapter or modify my unused 1.0 ds300 into a vacuum with a 18v to 20v adapter and my old cordless vac parts

    Tough System 2.0

    Decided to upgrade to 2.0 after all
  4. I agree with you, dewalt needs to pick it up. But Dewalt makes a flexvolt toughsystem dust extractor vacuum for low price $500!!, lol. I just missed one for $250 off ebay last month😥. I own Dewalts greatest piece of innovation the Dewalt Flexvolt/20v Portable Power Station with about 20 batteries (4x 9ah,2x flexvolt 6ah, 2x 8ah, 8x 4ah,8x 2ah, 3ah)so any tool is dewalt cordless; stationary or portable backpack mode. I would buy immediately if dewalt released a double bevel miter but got ridgid for 50%. Milwaukee m18/12 have exploded with new tools, ryobi, ridgid and makita continue to surprise
  5. Milwaukee just released their m12v pin nailer, I'm all dewalt brushless 20v,but I would definitely have to buy into dewalt 12v if they released a 12v pin nailer. I thought about buying into the 12v platform when I first spotted the Dewalt 12v pivoting recip saw
  6. Decided to take the 50-60 screws out and open up the dewalt toughsystem 2.0 radio to see why on one the subwoofer would crackle and pop constantly, on another 2 speakers are not working at all and I took the subwoofer from that one to fix a 3rd to complete working order , sub was just dead. attempting to track down the speakers. Are they 2" 4ohm 5watt ? I already ordered 2 4" 4ohm 40-70 watt subwoofers
  7. I had the original 20v oscillating tool which had a solid epoxy inside around the trigger assy, the tool itself was heavier than the new model which I replaced it due to the blade clamp release went bad(silver plastic looks like metal) and despite it being brushless, the whole multi tool would get white hot. The new model is lighter with silicone and better on vibration but maybe the silicone heated up which loosened connections. I forget the model #'s. In my experience and only makes sense like the 20v circ saw, recip saw, and flexvolt saw which I had original models and updated each for the
  8. Tap the power button, dont hold in , it works on my toughsystem radio 2.o which looks very similar to the tstak

    Dewalt Combo Kit

    Dewalt flexvolt combo best value for your money, batteries are $219 +for 9ah and $60 + tax for 20v 2ah battery alone. Kit is same price as gen 1 saw kit, and gen 2 with 9ah. Kit includes flexvolt dcs578, compact brushless hammer drill, flexvolt 9ah battery and 20v 2ah battery, blades, bits, 6 amp charger, and large tool bag
  10. Saw this while I was there picking up the cordless roofer, exchanged out the flexvolt cirk kit only which I payed $299+tax for. I got 10% back and got the combo kit, includes new dcs578, 9ah battery, compact brushless hammer drill and xr 2ah batter, charger, and large bag
  11. Got the last one at depot anywhere around my area right before closing. Trying it out tomorrow. It's a lil more top heavy than I expected but not bad considering I use a 9ah flexvolt on the 20v framer
  12. My Dewalt 30° cordless framer jams up sometimes, if the lever on top doesn't retract the firing pin I'll give the gun a good shake and it retracts. If you take gun apart you'll notice the firing pin is barely seated in, could easily damage or jump off track. Bad design. I modified to 21° but still same problem. My old dewalt 18v Brad nailer did this. after having to reset the belt inside a few other times to get it to stop making a loud horrible squealing sound when I pressed the trigger or head down in sequential bump mode, I fixed that problem a few times but one occasion the mot

    Framing gun

    I've had the Dewalt 20v 30° Framer for a good 5 years now and it can rapid fire just like the pneumatic milwaukee framer I use for bigger jobs. The dewalt 20v fires as fast as I can press the firing head in bump mode , easy 2 nails a second through sheathing or for 2x material I would throw a flexvolt battery on there. I just recently picked up a 21° magazine clip and modified it for 21° plastic collated nails. Still sinks in 3 1/4 ring shanks 12's no prob all day!
  14. Still no rafter hook on the 2.0 DCS389 Reciprocating Saw? I'll have to do this, thanks. I have the gen 1 flexvolt circ saw with no rafter hook and i had but just exchanged out the 20v dcs570 for new model with rafter hook.
  15. Just picked up the new 2.0 Flexvolt Reciprocating Saw and Circular Saw kitted with 9.0ah batteries and quick charger! They claim like 20 something % more power on recip saw and 48% more power or something crazy on 7 1/4 circ saw. I have the gen1 original flexvolt circ purchased from toolbarn back in 2015, it's a beast. Almost went with the rear handle worm drive style because I always did prefer using my 15 amp hypoid worm drive saw. Same price as the gen1 kit with the 2ah flexvolt battery
