Tool Deals

I looked at those then went with the Milwaukee 18v Fuel, they cost more and are pretty much unstoppable, hanging gaates I can push multiple 18mm holes through 8 inch posts without it missing a beat.
The Fuel series are the brushless motors, I have the drill (hammer and drill) impact driver, sabre saw, circular saw and angle grinder and they cost about $1400.

I also have one of those ‘never-say-die’ Ozito corded rotary hammer drills

Mine said die :(

They still have them, price has gone up $40 over the last 12 years.

I don’t really need one ATM. I guess if a job arises when one is required I’ll grab one then.

I borrowed a full size Hilti earlier this year to break up some concrete. Now those things REALLY have some grunt. Wouldn’t want to run one all day, you’d be absolutely knackered!

You’d be knackered if you bought one & didn’t make it pay for itself too. :wink:

my one grizzle with milwaukee is that they don't make a sander for the 18v.

How the hell did that happen?

You put 4 spaces before your words and it thinks you are a programmer and talk in code.

There is a God.

Not sure why it changed it. Fucking computers.

Just got called out to one of my jobs to undo all the good work we did of cladding a wall … long story …
To do the job I needed a circular saw which I didn’t have with me so I bought an AEG like the one in Dogs photo except corded.
What a piece of crap. The forward hand grip is a knob that when you hold it you cant reach the Guard retractor with your thumb …Its either a new safety feature or a design fuckup. Also the plate height adjuster lever is on the other side of the saw to the blade so if you’re visually adjusting the plate you have to stop and look for the lever and in the meantime the plate has moved. Brilliant!
The only other bit of AEG kit I have had was an impact driver …that was shit as well.
