  1. Hi, new inquirer here. I need to get a 1/2" impact wrench for the main purpose of removing and reinstalling the blades on my John Deere 48" mower deck. I'm 70 now and doing it with a 1/2 socket wrench and a torque wrench is pretty much out of the question now. So, I have a recommendation from my repair guy. He uses the DeWalt 20V 1/2 impact wrench. However, I'm a little inundated with so many DeWalt models and most of them look different from each other and have different prices, even though they say they are 1/2" and 20V. I know some have a brushless motor, and I like the sounds of that, but some are not. All I am going to purchase is the tool, a battery and the battery charger. I don't even think I need an extra battery. I'm hoping someone more knowledgeable than I, can bring some of this chaos into useful order. Thanks for your indulgence.

  3. - Hey all, I'm new here, but love what I'm reading and learning on the forum. I'm a moderator DIY guy and am looking to upgrade all of my tools. I have a plethora of used Milwaukee and DeWalt tools that have been handed down to me or purchased used over the years, but it's time for me to get a good combo kit finally. I don't NEED anything professional grade but absolutely appreciate quality tools and want something I can keep for many many years. I'm looking at some of the current home depot deals and I'm torn between two options: 1. Milwaukee M18 6 Piece Combo Brushed - $399 https://www.homedepot.com/p/Milwaukee-M18-18-Volt-Lithium-Ion-Cordless-Combo-Kit-5-Tool-W-Free-M18-Cut-Off-Grinder-2695-25P-2680-20/304749226 Reasons to get Milwaukee: Better Quality Extra Tool (Grinder would be a great addition to my shop) 2. RIDGID 5 Piece Combo Brushless - $399 https://www.homedepot.com/p/RIDGID-18-Volt-Lithium-Ion-Brushless-5-Piece-Combo-Kit-R9638SBN/303819066 Reasons to get RIDGID: Brushless Lifetime Warranty What are your thoughts? Anything else I should consider here that would help sway me? I have a buddy who loves his RIDGID stuff, but I've used Milwaukee enough to know it's great. Thanks all!
  4. Just wanted to get some opinions on which way to go between the 12v brushless Fuel impact/hammer drill combo kit by Milwaukee and Makita's 18v brushless sub-compact drill/impact combo. Milwaukee has a sale at my Home Depot where the 12v Fuel is $169, while Makita's sub-compact kit comes with a free third battery for $229. I already have Milwaukee's surge/hammer drill 18v combo and a Fuel circ. saw, as well as Hitachi's Triple Hammer, so I'm not looking to expand much (if at all) in either the Milwaukee 12v or the Makita 18v (knock on wood). They both feel great ergonomically, and appear to have similar specs. I know Milwaukee's 12v Fuel has been out for 3-4 years, but they told me they don't have any plans to come out with newer versions of their Fuel fasteners. Both of these deals are limited time, so I'd greatly appreciate honest opinions. Thank you!
  5. Love this new makita sawzall its brushless powerful two speed settings and a variable speed trigger and a trigger lock. Rafter hook light on front , adjustable shoe. I would highly recommended I use 4ah batteries with it and works great.
  6. Anyone know the real torque ratings for this impact? I was looking on Ryobi's website (in Australia) and it says the torque ratings are 50/100/270 Nm (443/885/2400 in-lbs). I am finding that very hard to believe but I can't fine anywhere that states otherwise. http://www.ryobi.com.au/products/details/18v-one-brushless-impact-driver
  7. I know a lot of you are excited about these tools, so hope you enjoy! I think they're little rippers...

  9. Just spotted the new brushless 18v XR SDS DCH273P2 coming available in the UK soon!!!! I am a little annoyed as it has only been about 2 months since I bought the DCH253M2 Any way there seems to be a new belt hook added to the new one!! Something I could have really done with a number of times over the past few months. Still looks cool and I want one!! Just need an excuse for needing two SDS drills so I can buy one Here is a pic
  10. Hello all, Been lurking on the forums, finally decided to sign up. I need your guys help in making my next purchase. My budget is $650 and I'm looking to get an Impact Driver/ A drill/ and an SDS plus rotary hammer. I'm looking for all cordless and preferably brushless. I'm down to the following unless you have a better suggestion: ***Option 1 Makita Xt25m combo kit for $384.97 ( The promo also includes a free dual 18vx2 36v rotary hammer ) So this would give me the ( xph07z Hammer Drill, Xtd01z Impact, & free xhrz053 Dual battery rotary hammer) Then I could use and additional $150 to buy to 4.0 batteries for the rotary and be at a total of $534 which would give me 3 tools, 4 batteries and I would just be lacking a case for the rotary but I would still have an extra $120 to spend - My thoughts- I wish the impact was the LXTD06 model( I would hate having the xtd01zmodel knowing a brand new a better version exists) , the rotary is not brushless & is rather large, no life indicator on the batteries, but I get 4 batteries 3 tools and money to spare, wish I hade a case for the rotary though *** Option 2 Bosch Clpk233181L kit for $369, then also purchase the Bosch Rhh181bl rotary bare tool with box for $268.99 So this would give the ( DDS182 hammer drill, IDH182 Impact, Rhh181 rotary for $637.99, so 3 tools, 3 cases but only 2 batteries and I max my budget -My thoughts - I love the fact that each model is the companies latest and greatest model, the impact seems really cool & Everything here is brushless, everything has a case, the downside is I would be short a battery and maxed out on the budget, the rotary also seems pretty cool for how light is is. ***Option 3 Milwaukee 2797-22 M18 fuel combo for $399,Milwaukee 2612-21 rotary $150(-$150 off Home Depot discount) So this would give me the ( 2604-20 Hammer, 2653-20 impact & 26-21 rotary for $548. So I end up with 3 tools, 3 cases, 3batteries and 2 chargers and $100 to spare -My thoughts- I wish the drill was the newer model hammer, same with the makita impact it will make me made knowing that I just bought something new when there is an updated version out, I love that the impact is the companies best model, my concern with this deal is the rotary, it's not brushless. And more importantly it only has 2 settings! I want that 3rd hammer only chipping setting. Ideally I would get the 2712-20 model instead since it is also $299 and has the 3 settings and is brushless, the only issue is it is not available for the -$150 off Home Depot discount and it is a bare tool so no battery and no case and it would put me over budget since it's not included on the Home Depot -$150 deal. I am not a professional just an at home DIY. I do own a sports performance facility and bolt several peices of fitness equipment to concrete floors and walls, as well as break down and put together several peices of fitness equipment. I am that crazy picky guy that likes all the bells and whistles and the latest and greatest. I hate cheap stuff and going the affordable route to sacrife quality. I'm all about having the quality,but I still have a $650 budget for these 3 tools. Also I don't own any platform at the moment so I will be buying into a platform, but there aren't that many additional tools that I would need. I want to make this purchase by the end of the wk. Please offer any opinions, advice, thoughts etc. on helping me make this decision. Thanks for taking your time to read this and help me out.
  11. I was wondering how cheap i could make a functioning cnc router. I was debating about using an arduino uno (clones for about $1, Original for about $35) and some ebay H-bridge chips to control large dc motors that i have gotten for free out of old drills and recip saws. Using some hardware store threaded rod and nuts as well as copper pipe and some pipe couplers for the bushings. The copper pipe may be one of the most sturdy and cheap ways of linear motion. Utilizing a dremel or similar for a spindle or even a brush less quadcopter motor.
  12. Does anyone else feel as I do that Dewalt should invest more R&D dollars in new tools? I"d like to be a loyal Dewalt owner, but I have to admit that I have a bit of envy for the constant stream of new and innovative tools from Milwaukee. I just saw an article that they're introducing 22 new tools over the next year, many of them brushless. The new brushless motors put cordless tools on par with corded tools and are more than just a novelty. What are we hearing from Dewalt? Zip, nada, nothing. I stopped in at one of their traveling road shows and the folks running the show knew nothing about any new tools. It would seem the most basic and needed brushless tools are a 20V circular saw and reciprocating saw. Come on Dewalt. Catch up with the competition and keep us in the fold!
  13. Has anyone tried out these new Makita brushless combi and impact drivers? My mate on site has demo'd them at a show and says they're kick a$$: http://www.twwholesale.co.uk/product.php/section/6091/sn/Makita-DLX2040TJ-Twinpack Finally a brushless combi with a brushless impact driver together rather than one or the other...
  14. Any info on Dewalt expanding their brushless XR lineup? I hope to see at least a circular saw and sawzall by July, my hope is fading and needs restoration. Someone come with the good news already
