  1. Brush or brushless Can you post pics Sent from my SM-N960U using Tapatalk
  2. Listen It's like when you guy to buy a truck, do you get it in 2 Wheel drive or 4 Wheel drive. Personal I choose the 4 Wheel drive mode ( self propelled ) because it is nice to have it when you need it. If you are powering through high grass, as I did already, squeeze the drive and walk right through a patch of 4 foot grass that hadn't been mowed all year. I will warn you, start on slow speed as the self propelled will run a heck of a lot faster than you can fast walk. Sent from my SM-N960U using Tapatalk
  3. Yes, the lawn mower and weed eater both use the same battery. Yesterday when my 2.5 ah for the weed eater went dead, I slapped the 7.5 ah battery out of the lawn mower to finish up the yard. Sent from my SM-N960U using Tapatalk
  4. I am pretty sure the Dewalt XT is left Sent from my SM-N960U using Tapatalk
  5. I picked up an Ego 56 volt weed eater with the power wind head and 2.5 ah battery. UPS delivered it this morning and I have already refilled the head twice, and recharged the battery twice. But dang that thing has some power. Sent from my SM-N960U using Tapatalk
  6. I saw that Ego has a battery operated snow blower now Sent from my SM-N960U using Tapatalk
  7. Ok, I am going to jack you off a little. Which tool will you be using to remove the lug nuts ? Haha I got you, going to shine a light on this and say I would be chomping at the bit to put new toys to work. I just bought a new mower and can't wait for the grass to grow.

  8. Are you using an extension ? Are your sockets impact rated ? Why I ask is that I purchased a snap on 18 volt 1/2 impact and wasnt impressed till I removed a 4 inch extension out of the equation and went with an impact rated deep well socket. Just like you, putting them on was fine but when trying to remove the lug nuts, it was disappointing. Now anything I use, has to be impact rated. And believe me, I have tore the whole front end off my wife's explorer and my 3/4 ton super duty with my impact. Sent from my SM-N960U using Tapatalk
  9. Now I will say that a lot of times, blades may not be dull, but a build up of sap can result from sappy wood and the blade only requires a good cleaning. As for sharpening a saw blade, I for one have never tried it, as most of the time I have ripped a few teeth off the blade and a new 7 1/4 general purpose blade is a cheap as 10.00 unless you need something fine tooth for finish work.

  10. May I ask, do you and the OP have some beef between one and other? I am just trying to understand your rudeness. Sent from my SM-N960U using Tapatalk
  11. I will have to say, my metabo came with a carbide blade that seems to be pretty decent. Sent from my SM-N960U using Tapatalk
  12. I disagree on the super sawzall being rough on the end user, you should try the Metabo 36 volt sawzall. It is very pleasant to use, vibration is very minimal. It is orbital as well as strait pull. Mind you that it does also have 4 speed settings if you need to be delicate. As also a variable speed trigger. 0 to 1700 0 to 2300 0 to 2700 0 to 3000 Sent from my SM-N960U using Tapatalk
  13. Well guys I am surprised no one mention the Metabo line. Maybe none of you know but my sawzall is both corded and cordless. So I have the best off both worlds. My new set is 36 volt, I can switch from a 36 volt battery to 120 volt in a just a few seconds. Plus my 36 volt batteries are backwards compatible and I can run them in my 18 volt impact for double the run time. The Sawzal is very smooth and the vibration is almost non existent. Yes it is heavy but it's also a heavy duty tool. Right now till September, if you buy a tool, you can get a free battery or the AC adapter for free with the rebate promo form. I have already recieved my AC adapter, it came in the mail a few days ago, and I am waiting on 2 free batteries that will be showing up next week. 17 years ago I purchase the Hitachi ( Metabo ) 18 volt nicad system with the AC adapter. Batteries crapped out a few years ago so they are now dedicated corded. I still plug them up and use the units at home and use my 36 volt for work. Feel free to hit me up if you want to see pics of the older 18 volt NiCd system . It's pretty cool. Sent from my SM-N960U using Tapatalk
  14. I broke down and bought a 56 volt lawn mower. I tell you this was the most apprehensive purchase I have ever made, plus the 500.00 price tag, I was like crap I could buy a nice table saw for what I was about to spend. Let me tell you, I am very impressed. The power the Ego has , it's incredible. I ran it through some 4 foot grass while in self propel mode and it did not even know the grass was there. Sounds like a turbo kicks in as soon as it hit the tall grass. Sent from my SM-N960U using Tapatalk
  15. I just got my ac/dc adapter in the mail today. Now I am waiting on 2 free batteries. Sent from my SM-N960U using Tapatalk
  16. Didnt someone say that the bits need lubed periodically to allow them to hammer properly. If the bits go dry, then to much friction is built that it feels like the drill lost power. Now if it has a drill chuck, then maybe the shank needs lubes. Sent from my SM-N960U using Tapatalk
  17. Crapped out on race day. Just would not power up on the day I needed it. I guess it's time to go deeper into the motor and give it a good cleaning and maybe replace the power switch anyways. Sent from my SM-N960U using Tapatalk
  18. Eric You are correct, nice power output. Supper smooth running. I did stall the saw out a couple times but I was doing an 8 foot full depth cut and pushing it hard up a pressure treated 4x4. But if you do not push it, it will zip a full length cut with ease. The blade that came with the saw is a carbide tip and still makes smooth cuts even after ripping through the center of 8p nails length wise. Battery consumption is very good with the 4ah battery. I built a work table for my wife with one battery, plus using the battery in my hammer drill to put adjustable legs in the 4x4's. All screws where driven with my 18 volt 2.5 ah impact.

  19. Just purchased the 36 Volt Sawzal, warning it will eat a 4 ah battery in a heart beat. Running it in speed 4 setting, I managed to cut a pallet down to size. Removing both 2x4's on the outside edge and cutting one whole side panel loose. I am surprised by its power when cutting the lat boards off the 2x4, zipping right through the nails, even as the blade became dull, was not a bi metal blade, but the Milwaukee blades are very tough. The adjustable foot, was a pleasure, blade gets dull, just extend the foot, giving you 3 inches of fresh clean blade. I was not able to make the sawzal power out or shut down. It did not seam to mind the blade pinched between two boards. Even when the blade was bent, still pulling full strokes. This thing is heavy duty, and it is heavy. No wonder why they out a rafter hook on it. Vibration was not an issue, I seem to remember my old one would just about beat you to death if you did not keep it tight against the work piece. Same goes for the Dewalt 20V XR I use on the job, it would rattle you a bit, but this tool is supper smooth. You have 4 speed settings with a variable speed trigger 1) 0 to 1700 ss 2) 0 to 2000 ss 3) 0 to 2500 ss 4) 0 to 3000 ss Price was right, 170.00 bare tool delivered.

  20. Welcome to the neighborhood. Yes the 18 volt charger will work, just take a little longer to charge than a dedicated 36 volt. If you are buying a new tool, make sure you go the the metabo rebate website and submit your info for either a free battery or the ac adapter to run on 120 volt. Sent from my SM-N960U using Tapatalk
  21. I just read the the 6 1/2 saw will not cut deep enough to make 45° cuts on 2x4's Sent from my SM-N960U using Tapatalk
  22. Just the depth and availability of blades. I believe you you can get more options and brands with the 7 1/4 and at a better price. Larger circumference should cut faster in theory. I know I just switched back to a 7 1/4 saw so I will know in a few days how it does compared to my 6 1/2 saw. Now the real question, can I run a 6 1/2 on a 7 1/4 saw. Hmmmmmm Sent from my SM-N960U using Tapatalk
  23. As Eric said and if that doesnt work, look into pulling the batteries out of their shell and actually rebuild them. There are some videos on youtube that will put you on the right track. I have a couple Nicd I want to rebuild as soon as i buy a 60 watt soldering iron. Just make sure to use quality cells if you do a rebuild. Sent from my SM-N960U using Tapatalk
  24. I am already digging the silent mode, kinda like the wife when she gets mad at me. Silent at first till she loads up then the noise ramps up as her RPM climbs to 4000. I know the RPM seems not a fire beast when compared to the Dewalt 20 Volt XR 5000 rpm but it might make up for it with power. I am wondering how it will work out. Sent from my SM-N960U using Tapatalk
