Very nice! Great to hear it's German made. 

 

Great stuff. Keep the photos coming. We really should start a Metabo tool porn thread like the Milwaukee section.

Looking good. I really like the LED feature.

What LED feature? If you're talking about the drill I posted they abandoned the motion sensor LED lights, I have the impuls version and while it was nice, it would turn on from a bump.

Thing i love about the Ridgid cordless tools is the little bumper trigger on the handles that depresses when you grab the handle to turn the LEDs on, nice feature, sad the LEDs on the drill are junk and barely light the work surface

Which drills? I actually like the circular LED on the Gen5x, not enough to sink into that line though. TBH my dv18dsdl has a pretty bright light and its wide too but dewalt's LED on their drills have got it spot on.

Yea thats the one, I actually won the big gen5x kit here at Christmas time, overall the drill is nice, on the brushless model they pulled the LEDs off the chuck and put them on the handle

I used to have a dv18dbl hitachi drill, i loved that thing until someone stole it from my car, it wasnt the super best but hell it did the job, the light on that thing was perfect, no chuck shadow at all, its a shame hitachi put the light back under the chuck on their newer drills.

Ididn't know they abandoned the motion sensor lights. I actually like that. Not like the leds would kill the battery.

no idea actually, could be my drill has a bad motion sensor, as it took me ages to find the LTX BL I drill I'm not about to return it esp if the seller doesn't have anymore stock. If you can find me this drill anywhere let me know, company I do weekends for wants to know they'll buy the whole stock.

I only just realised that this drill is a completely different drill to the one I've been considering (which is highly discounted here atm).

 

I was looking at the BS 18 LTX BL (which is 90nm and has the red button at the top to quickly switch from clutch to drill).

 

The BS 18 LTX BL I is not even available here yet.

 

Nice, I'll keep waiting now that I know that's on the horizon.

 

It seems they are discounting the models that must have a new brushless version coming out soon (which is pretty much everything including the circular saw).

 

Bad that I just got a recip saw and the 200 wrench, but good that I haven't got anything else yet.

Yeah i pulled the trigger on this via ebay as the seller used his own pictures (I reverse imaged searched each picture) he had the product specs of the SB LTX BL IMPULSE but i asked if I was getting the product pictured and only bought one to see if it was legit.

 he had three and they sold out 15hours after he put the listing up. I cannot find this drill anywhere, I've searched UK, aus, germany, grainger, looked at special order booklets, I was thinking about asking the seller how he came about the drill but I fear he'll hike the price up if he knows how hard the damn thing is to get.
