I have the 12.0 and have only used it on the chain saw.

The pro play is to use CP3.0 and XC6.0 batteries in the M12 footprint.

I got my dad the M18 12ah with the blower, it balances really nicely. Wouldnít want to use it on much else, especially not an impact for instance.

I do this too, I've got one smaller m18 battery and use it on everything. I'm rarely doing projects where I'm burning through batteries so it works out pretty well.

Meh. Not seeing anything eye popping TBH. That supercharger kit was $200 on holiday special last year, for instance.

Cross posted from the homeowners thread.

Need a new leaf blower and drill. Small yard, would need the blower to last about 15-20 minutes tops per use. Drill just to have on hand for odds and ends, I don't build anything or anticipate any projects. Replacing a 15+ year old Craftsman.



Is this a good deal? Just need to figure out what drill to get. Is Milwaukee overkill for my intended use? Buy once cry once?

Edit: I see this deal was posted on the previous page. 4ah battery no good for light use?

The blower for under $90 is a good deal. I was happy to pay $100 for it and get a Supercharger kit separately last year vs buying the bundled blower with 9ah battery. Gifted it to my father so he has a 12ah and 8ah battery to use; Iíll ask him how much runtime he gets, but I think the consensus is to run the 12ah battery.

The deal is only good if you buy the 2 battery pack.

If I buy the blower by itself it's $160 + $250 for the 12ah battery and charger. Dang, $400 is a lot more than I wanted to spend for a leaf blower. As much of a pain having a cord is, the cheap Homelite I was using lasted at least 6 years and was probably $50. Decisions.

Any recommendations on budget friendly 3/8 digital angle torque wrenches? Some of the reviews on the ACdelco and Gearwrench aren't flattering. I've been eyeing up the Mastercraft
Maximum, but its fairly new and I can't seem to find reviews.

I don't have any recommendations for digital specifically, but you will probably get more for your $ going analog click or beam type depending on the use. While the harbor freight stuff is kind of a pita to set/lock and it rarely stays locked, I checked 3 against a cal indicator and they were well within the error/accuracy claimed. The traditional click type snap on are very nice, quality units. Compared to other "high end" click type they are not extra $ just for the name.

Do you mean the flex head wrenches?

For cheap I don't know if you will find a decent one.
You can find a decent USED craftsman or snap-on on eBay with a flex head, I see them pop up once in a while.
What you can do is try useing a swivel socket with a standard head wrench.
Budget friendly I'd try the sata. https://www.amazon.com/dp/B07W1JMHZH..._z0xcGbK2N8F7K

With a swivel joint, if the joint is not at 180 degrees (is bent at all in any direction,) torque is affected, and so is precision (getting the same result on repeated measurements.)

Yeah I understand that but for a budget friendly option I'm sure it's pretty close.

If based on a strain gauge in the head, it should be fine at any angle.

I'm fairly invested in DeWalt 20v tools but wanted a cordless 23ga pin nailer and they only have a 18ga brad nailer which I already had.
One of my cabinet builders highly recommended the Makita 23ga nailer,but I didn't want to have another battery format and charger.
I managed to find a $20 adapter to use dewalt 20v so I ordered the nailer on amazon for $189. Works perfectly.
Highly recommended if anyone is in need of a cordless pin nailer. The adapter I found also works with milwaukee batteries as well.

I have an analog click type Mac wrench. Specifically looking for something reliable and accurate with an angle function, without breaking the bank

Iím trying to decide if I should grab a cordless Brad nailer prior to my project in the house replacing all baseboards. I have the pneumatic stuff but the convenience of battery and no compressor/hoses is pretty appealing.

Iíve got all Milwaukee so Iím looking at the fuel m18 Brad nailer.

It's worth it. But they are heavier than their pneumatic counterparts.

If you are working overhead with it, expect to take regular breaks.

I still use my pneumatic one in my shop. But the cordless is so convenient when you just need to tack up a piece or two and don't want to lug the compressor around.

Iím thinking about it from the perspective of putting a couple boards up as I get time itís a few less things to lug around.

Deffinately worth it, I've put a few thousand nails through my 16 gauge ryobi and it probably saved me hours not jerking round with hoses and such. I'm actually surprised it still works tbh.

I bought a pneumatic pin nailer when I was building my camper van, to glue and nail the wood to the ceiling. I used my Viair 88p portable compressor to charge my 5 gallon portable tank, which was easy to bring into the van and work with a short hose. Worked great.

I probably would have bought a Milwaukee pin nailer.... if they made one (not sure if they do now or not).

The pin nailer is great because it does not split even really thin wood.

The electric nailers are good if you need to shoot a couple of nails. If you're going to be at it all day air is still the way to go.
