    Just know who usually makes what, I look up companies that OEMs out source to so I can get parts from their third party names. That's how I find quality parts for cheapo prices when I work on things. Easier to buy as wholesale or a third party rebox than from the OE vendor. Get OEM parts for AutoZone and Oreilly house brand prices often enough. I work on a lot of Japanese crap and take note of it as I replace or repair which helps as well. Here's a name I bet you haven't heard but they make tons of belts, Unitta.

    Both have basically the same rewards system too. Get $5 off every $100 spent. I only pick Napa over Oreily cause of my poor experiences with the oreily managers in town. Strung me along for 4 job interviews, eventually told me they wanted a full timer for a part time ad. :rolleyes:

    Those are probably the 12A ones. The 6A & 9A ones were crazy expensive too when they first came out. I don't own any 12A ones. I do have one 9A but I waited till the price finally came down. If/when the 12A ones get cheaper I might get one but I don't really need 12A. I'd use it for my blower, that's what I'm using the 9A on now. All my other M18 batts are 5A. They last a long time for me.

    I'm waiting for the M12 3A compact ones to come down in price. The 2A ones don’t last very long in the M12 ratchet.

    I just Picked up a bunch of stuff today and i think it came with the 2A. Last fine in the impact but over heats fast in a grinder. I might have to buy a 12A to use just for the grinder.

    I wonder how long the 6A will last in my fan. And it what you mean with the 2A m12, they suck, i go through them way to fast and i have 4

    The grinders need at least the 5A battery to be useable, I think that's what the kits come with it. The blower don't last that long with the 5A & is why I got the 9A. Problem with the 12A is they're stupid expensive still, that and they're pretty bulky & heavy to use in a hand held tool. The 9A is pretty big for a batt already. They take a while to charge too unless you use the fast charger. I won't be getting the fast charger though. 12A would be good for the grinder if you need to do a lot of grinding but the weight will make the tool off balance. I'd just use a corded grinder if I had to do a lot of grinding.

    I only own one 2A M18. I only use it in the flashlight though because of it's compact size. Was a waste of a 5A battery using in the flashlight. I think they make 3A CP now for M18 but whatever I don't need one. I just want the M12 3A CPs and I'll be good.

    I’m tying on go more cordless because its not always easy to have power access out in the field. Though i did go with a corded rotary hammer drill because when i read the box for the M18 it said like 20 min run time

    Oh yeah, definitely go cordless for field work if/when possible. So much easier & convenient than having to lug around & use extension cords! Heck, I rarely even use my air tools at home now, I use cordless most of the time.

    You do that much grinding for your work? And a rotary hammer drill? Did you change jobs?

    Ah, just do like this! ;)

    I do commercial hvacr now. Today I had to install new door guides for a walk in case, which meant I had to cut the old bolts out and drill new holes into the concrete to install new mount bolts. So I needed some fancy tools lol
