  1. Any reason a person would get the rear handle vs their "normal" circular saw? I imagine it's personal preference, but without a lot of experience with either form factor I'm unsure what makes sense for me.
  2. That's the best way to look at it. Look at all of these stocks that are on sales! Who wouldn't buy 9mm by the case if it were $0.05 -$0.10 a round? When the market is down is when it is time to buy. I don't understand people that only want to invest when the stock market is "doing good".
  3. Just type out your payment details here and I'll get it fixed for you. EDIT: And...in case there is anyone that doesn't get it, this is sarcasm.
  4. @cgpeanut I just want to point out and commend your optimism. It's probably a better world where you can find hope for things like national reciprocity (which, I personally don't think you want the Feds managing this) or looser NFA laws.

  6. @FUJIMO You like the M18 RO Sander? I picked one up today, first thoughts are that I like it but it seems people either love or hate it. Got a bundle with 2.0 and 5.0 Ah batteries with charger. I could return those and make the sander something like $80.00. At some point I do need more batteries though so I'm thinking I may keep it.
  7. Sold off my older drill and impact driver (M12, brushed) and replaced it with this kit: https://www.homedepot.com/p/Milwaukee-M12-FUEL-12V-Lithium-Ion-Cordless-Hammer-Drill-Impact-Driver-3-8-in-Ratchet-Combo-Kit-3-Tool-2598-22-2567-20/316105832 Exited to step into the world of brush-less and FUEL. From what I've read, I should see a decent difference. I'm curious about the ratchet, I'm thinking it may be useful for mower type maintenance and other related things. @FUJIMO Thoughts on the ratchet? I paid an extra $80.00 for the bundle that includes it, the drill and driver are only $179.00 without it.
  8. Absolutely agree...with one caveat being true (probably more-so than with gas tools): Quality Counts Although a cheap gas tool may be "good enough" (although it may not have the longevity over years that you may find with a quality tool), cheap electric tools and their batteries can be a rather bad experience.
  9. This is what I purchased and ultimately have loved. It runs the trimmer attachment and pole saw wonderfully. Especially for someone that already has the batteries this would be a wonderful purchase, just note it typically requires High Output batteries but @FUJIMO can probably deep dive into that more than I could. Take a look on Facebook Marketplace, I bought the Pole Saw attachment locally for $60.00 new in box to compliment the trimmer head.
  10. @FUJIMO Well I’ve picked up the trimmer, pole saw attachment, blower, and hedge trimmer over the previous two weeks. I’m surely on the right path.
  11. Well maybe we can gather them together and have a surprise celebration party at your place. Drinks and snacks on me.
  12. I considered some of the EGO stuff but decided I'd much rather have one system that stretches further than multiple specialized systems.
  13. Well, I've been messing with the Pole Saw attachment over the previous week, nothing quite considered "work" up to this point but so far all fun. I bet I've put 30 minutes or so on the battery (of course, a cut here, a cut there, etc) and the battery still shows three of four bars. What that tells me is that the battery would outlast me in terms of energy, in other words it could charge while I take a break. I haven't full blown used the trimmer yet, in other words I haven't weed-eated my entire ditch line. But I am already so impressed with it that I'm selling the Stihl. I think a single 8.0 Ah battery will get me through the entire job, but even if it doesn't I think I still prefer it. The test areas I've hit with it so far impressed me, and I haven't put a quality string on it yet. This is what I've been using for a few years now, I'm very impressed but be careful around your house/decking/landscaping as it will eat through some lattice. I'm anxious to see what this stuff will do in the ditch. I'm honestly thinking of picking up the chainsaw bundle at some point, the 12.0 Ah battery that comes with it would be perfect for both the trimmer and blower. I am at this point surprised Milwaukee hasn't came out with a backpack blower, maybe one that takes two batteries if needed. All I really need it for is the deck, sidewalk, and the road after weed-eating. I'm sure it (the currently available one) would handle all of those combined and a bit more.

  15. All I can say, just don't camp on public land in Tennessee.
  16. I did something and went a completely different direction last night. I went and purchased the M18 FUEL 18V Lithium-Ion Brushless Cordless String Trimmer with QUIK-LOK Attachment Capability and 8.0 Ah Battery. I've had quite a few of their M12 tools over the years and loved them, this is my first M18 purchase. Like @10-Ring, I agree that an oscillating multi tool is a wonderful purchase. I've had the M12 version for a few years and it's useful for all sorts of things, although blades/attachments can be expensive depending on what you get. Milwaukee is having an awesome sale right now where certain products get you a free battery, etc. However, folks in the know use a "hack" if that's what you want to call it. Example, I paid $299 for the above purchase, it comes with an 8.0 Ah battery but the promo gives you an additional 5.0 Ah battery with a sticker price of $149. The way it rings up on the receipt is that the trimmer is $199 and the battery has a "max refund value" of $99. Says that clear on the receipt. So sometime I'll swing in and return the 5.0 Ah battery. Brings the trimmer, 8.0 battery, and charger to $199.00 plus tax. I'll eventually get the pole saw for it as it would be great for trimming some limbs around the house. I did this to replace my Stihl. While a great gas trimmer, think I'll try this electric one for the summer. I paid $350 for the Stihl a few years back and think I've already found a buyer (or two, or three) on FaceBook for $300 even. I also have a cheap Walmart brand 20v leaf blower. I'll end up trying to sell it as well for whatever bills someone gives me. I think I'll do the "hack" and replace it as well. Tool ends up being less than $100. At some point I will need more batteries though so at some point I will probably have to keep one of the 5.0 Ah or buy one of the larger ones outright. I saw all of this to say I think I've decided my first purchase will be an M18 cordless saw. Even if I went out today and replaced every board on my deck, that's only 42 boards. In other words, it will be generally light use as I'm not making money cutting wood. Then I'll later get a miter saw for playing with. But it's summer and I gotta get more M18 toys.
