  1. This is my Makita TD171DB from Japan. I have enjoyed it a lot so far (1 month). I have had the makita xdt13 impact driver for almost a year now and love it so much that when i found out these existed i went and got one. The TD171D incudes the following 4 Speed modes: 1 -- [ 0-1100 rpm & 0-1100 ipm ] 2 -- [ 0-2100 rpm & 0-2600 ipm ] 3 -- [ 0-3200 rpm & 0-3600 ipm ] 4 -- [ 0-3600 rpm & 0-3800 ipm ] 1600 in/lbs max torque The 4 assist modes include: 1 for entering wood, this mode starts slow until it you get into the
  2. So I got my Gen2 Fuel kit yesterday and I had a Garage Door to install last night (100+ Self Tapping 7/16" screws and about a Dozen or so 7/16" x 2" wood lags). I don't know if it's My Impact or the mode in general, but the Self Tapping screw mode is completely useless. I tried it a few times on both bare metal and pre-drilled holes and every time it would start impacting right away and would only put the screw in half way before stopping entirely. Modes 2 and 3 worked amazing, but on mode 3 I did feel like there was a risk of stripping things out. Overall I am really happy with the performanc

    Ebay TD171 impact

    Does anybody know if the Makita "TD170" impact drivers that are floating around on ebay are real and the same as DTD170 ? Also, there's a newer TD171 model, sold the same way... https://www.ebay.co.uk/itm/Makita-TD171DZB-Impact-Driver-18V-2018-Latest-Model-ONLY-BODY-Black-Free-Ship/162921330587 Are they real, genuine, or different from the "official" models in any way? I see they are sold in many weird color options, like red, black, pink, green...... https://www.ebay.com/itm/Makita-TD170DZ-impact-driver-pink-TD170DZP-18V-body-only-made-in-japan-New/222601254746
  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 hav

  7. I thought this would be a good thread to start & will help a lot of people out when at the store. Post info, links, & pictures of your top three favorite driver bit/drill bit "kits". Then post 2-3 of your favorite bits, attachments, extensions, etc that do not come in the kits you use.
  8. I'm planing on buying a drill, impact driver set, not sure what to get.also not sure if i want a full sized set or a compact set. The main thing is the price...I would like it to be under $150(or cheaper). For $100 on amazon there is the hitachi compact 12v set, and at menards the bosch 18v set is on sale for $140. Any suggestions?
  9. Hey guys, just want to let you know that the new The Power is in your Palm! Ridgid Palm impact went on sale today. $99.00 at HD. Just bought it an I get on the 14th.
  10. I started a thread in regards to what tools will fit in the Fuel hard case. This is a Brand New Fuel hard case for a driver & drill combo. I modified it to fit the Brushed combo kit: 2656-20 impact driver & 2606-20 drill (the most common/popular kit). The fit is 100% PERFECT. I paid $35 for the case shipped plus about 4 hours or so of work. Please let me know if you need more pictures... I am looking for $40
  11. I picked up a M18 fuel driver/drill combo and took off the belt clip and extra bit holder. These will fit all M18 drivers and drills. Brand New and never used. If you do not have a Fuel set, you drill did not come with the belt clip and neither your driver or drill came with the bit holder! -- Looking for $8 each. Belt Clip + Screw: Bit Holder:
  12. Ok so after looking into this more i am super confused by the packages at Home Depot! I noticed that the price for the drill & driver combo kits changes almost daily! Last week alone the one i got went from $199 to $169 to $249....what. And i was just looking on the site and some other threads and started noticing a lot of dif things. This is the normal package - Model # 2691-22 - Home Depot link: https://tinyurl.com/j8ylb8y - This used to come with a free flashlight, but now its only when you buy online and not in store... The is the kit i got 2 days
  13. My Makita LXDT04 lost the ability in the trigger to control the speed so it has an excessive high speed only. It also goes in the wrong direction, right is left and left is right. I have 2 others but it would be nice to have a 3rd. What part do I need to replace? Brush? Trigger? I have no idea.
  14. I know a lot of you are excited about these tools, so hope you enjoy! I think they're little rippers...
  15. So I was in the market for a set of 3/8" impact sockets when I stumbled across these: The Tekton set I've had has been on the race trailer which turned out to be a logistical problem because the trailer is often at my father in-laws. It hasn't been an issue because I typically have multiples of most things, but not 3/8" impacts. On the trailer we stock only metric, but in the shop I need both, so this combination set really appealed to me. With SAE from 5/16" - 3/4" and metric from 8 mm up to 19 mm in both deep and shallow, it covers everything I'll need in 3/8" drive. It also included a 3" e
  16. Good morning guys, I'm about to get my first impact driver to work with wood and concrete. i need your advice because I don't know which one will be better for me, between Makita XDT01Z and Makita LXDT06Z... the XDT01Z it looks powerful just let me know if I`m right. the Makita XDT01Z and the Makita LXDT06Z
  17. Just bought the Ridgid x4 drill and impact combo after watching the TIA review. got a great price, $179 i believe, and so far has impressed me. I'm sure DeWalt, Milwaukee, and Makita might have better but the style and features fit my needs as a low voltage installer/ tech. Can't wait to expand my set and get a few more cool tools. Thanks guys at Tools In Action!
  18. Hi all new to the forum, just thought I'd start to get my two cents in on Milwaukee. Recently purchased multiple FUEL products awaiting delivery will write full review.
