Ya'll ever figure out that the battery isn't a fucking handle and stop pulling on it when the fastener is stuck, the tabs last much longer.
I‘ve broken 1x m12 battery involving a tool falling from ~ 6’ and landing on a concrete slab battery butt first. Tabs were destroyed. I’d see that as the more c.o on failure vs grabbing the tool by the butt cap.

What kind of fucktard has the ability to make their own aluminum triple trees and the rest of the clamps for pegs and whatnot but uses a cheap bolt on pipe joint instead of TIGging the chassis or at least MIGging it? That's hacktarded on its best day.
Looks
like there’s not a single weld in the whole frame assembly... maybe that was a goal in the project.

I suppose that could be it. The one that broke on mine was when I pulled it out of the gun. I'm usually not ham fisted with tools at all, but it's possible.

How is 10,000 PSI from a pneumatic grease gun- if they even output that high, better than 10,000 psi from an electric one? Got I hope all those years learning to drive the train were not wasted.
10,000 psi MAX in perfect conditions with a freshly charged battery maybe vs 10,000+ psi at 100% duty cycle :homer:. You get more than 10,000 psi from the pneumatic one too just need to turn up the regulator :flipoff2:

you dont need more than 10,000psi if you actually grease your shit regularly, then again if everyone did that you wouldnt have quite as much work :flipoff2:

I have 3 of the ratchets. They got a bit spotty on working when you squeeze the trigger. Watched the help smack the battery back in to get it working right. Then I started watching closer after seeing a few of the tabs with the sharp corner rounded off. Yep, pulling on the battery to break something loose to let the ratchet spin it out. I watched for a bit to see it was consistent. It was but isn't now.

m12 sawzall says "haha brrrrrrrrr tabs go snap"
You act like I don't own 50 fucking Milwaukee battery powered tools and use them daily. I have two of those, tabs are fine.

Are we posting deals here too? I just skimmed the last few pages :flipoff2:

HD has a 2 pack of 5ah batteries plus a dual rapid charger for $200. The charger alone is normally $120.

I am looking for a good deal on 1 or 2 12a batteries and that M18 charger that plugs in a 12v outlet

This.. If you have actually moved the little ball sealing up the zerk in the last twenty years or so, it's really not an issue. I use the HELL out of that Milwaukee grease gun, and can actually do it in places where there simply isn't an air compressor..

My buddy that does the Offer-up Milwaukee stuff reports that the battery market is a bit rough. His normal M18 battery value is 10 bucks an AH. He hasn't been able to get the 8, 9, and 12ah stuff for that for awhile now.

How's the longer-term outlook on the Fuel chainsaw?

HD has a promo through mid November for saw with a 12ah battery and a blower for $449, thinking a 16" saw is probably enough for 95% of my needs, I have no need for a blower, but thinking it's a decent deal for just the saw and battery. I keep hoping for a better (ideally saw plus 2x 12ah battery) bundle deal for Black Friday but don't know if they'll do that.

The saw is good for the pruning and stump removing I've done with it. I got it with a 12mah battery and it lasts way longer than expected.

The only oddity is it wants to cut in a curve once the chain gets beat up a bit. Like it will NOT go straight but put a little English on it and it'll keep going. Not sure if it's a bar issue, a narrow chain issue or most likely a me doing something wrong issue.

The blower is sweet, you'll find stupid shit to use it for, I don't sweet anymore, shit gets blown out.

My chainsaw works great so far. Not too much time on it yet. Battery life is good.

Just bought the pole saw to try out.

Love the blower. Blow out the garage, blow out the cars, etc

There's videos of them making 12kpsi.

There's no fucking air hose.

They're awesome.

We use an enerpac unit at work for hydraulically tensioned bolts. I'm going to buy the Milwaukee power pack as soon as i can catch a break on repair expenditures.

I'm sure of it. Aren't you supposed to shove the bar into the dirt at full chooch? :lmao:


I've replaced the blade twice, once I install #3 I'm taking the 2 old chains in to get sharpened. I'd buy the stuff to do it myself but for $7 each I'll pay the price.

the bar can cause crooked cuts too, lots of people file their chains but forget that the bar can be filed too

They use standard bars and chains. For my use I find a 12 inch bar I put on it a lot handier. If I need a longer bar I will get out a gas saw. I really hope they come out with a top handle and then mine will go on craigslist.

If my bar is the problem I REALLY fucked up since I have maybe an hour on the saw. I will keep bar wear in mind though, I'd never considered that, thanks for the heads up.

Ya, but unless the bar is made of zinc or lead, it shouldn't wear crooked for quite some time.
apparently you dont use your saw very hard :laughing: :flipoff2: i wasnt saying his problem is the bar, i said it can be the bar and everyone forgets about it, you proved that one with your smart ass reply :flipoff2:
