I have one of my electrician 2' auger bits. I was going to put it to the test on the weekend helping a buddy out.

Hows that jig saw working out for you? Any feedback is welcome.

Yeah, I have a ton of the C3 and the previous 'Pro' stuff from Crapsman and it's not even in the same league. They're pretty much garbage & the batteries and chargers crap out all the time. Just cheap crap pretty much.

Yep, that's exactly why I got my 20v Dewalt kit and use the 12v compact impact on my belt. That little sucker is damn good for that use. The other nice thing is that whatever job site I'm on if I need a battery someone will have several charged and ready to go. I debated the Milwaukee line but opted for the Dewalt for exactly this reason.

Sure, as long as electricity is handy. If you're the guy who's job it is is to bring electrical service to a location then that isn't going to do you much good.

I have a few DeWalt 18v tools with the XRP batteries that supposedly last longer, and I love them. We've always used DeWalt. We've dropped them a few feet off of ladders, used them in the rain, and put them through a few other small abuses. They just keep working. The batteries charge in under an hour.
I wasn't aware that they made a 20v version. The magazine "Family Handyman" did a comparison test of cordless tool brands a few months ago. You might be able to find it online.

Yep! I remember the days when I lugged around a Honda 5000 generator in my CAR I was that guy that thought corded was the way to go when we were building houses. The job site became quiet as a mouse after I got cordless.

In the 18v shaft line (XRP included) there is a dual charger and a 15min charger too.

The Lithium Ion 20v MAX USA version is just an 18v in slide battery form. The rest of the world it is marketed as the Lithium Ion XR system. Offered in 10.8v, 14.4v and 18v. See. look here - http://dewalt.co.uk/powertools/cordless/xr-system/

They named it 20v in the USA to maintain the difference in the 18v lines. Also, the batterys charge up to 20v MAX and discharge around 18v...

My Milwaukee impact driver has been nothing but awesome. 1/2" impact with pin is a beast I'd agree. 1/4" impact and hammer drill/driver have been bulletproof.

I always take mine wheeling in case a CV or tire needs to be changed. It came in very handy when a rock broke my valve stem and I was able to change tires in just a few minutes. All the wheeling buddies were impressed

Thats awesome. Too bad theres not a tool conference, well that I know about. I would like to go to one of those type deals to see the latest gear and compare what I could hands on. Like a Big Box Store but with the full lines of the tools. Not the pick and match stuff the stores do now.
