50 NEW MAKITA XGT TOOLS TO START
New 40V Max XGT tools include, among other things, new SDS-Plus and SDS-Max rotary hammers, a 15-pound demo hammer, and three new circular saws.One of the main goals Makita has with XGT is providing more power, but without users having to buy big, heavy, expensive slow charging batteries for use on a limited amount of tools. My opinion is it’s all about versatility to be able to power let’s say a 14-in cut off saw, and take one of the batteries out to power your impact driver it’s as simple as that.With XGT launching alongside 50 products, is a solid start , but what the future holds for there 80v platform, especially in the OPE arena of things the possibilites are massive.The 40V Max 2.5Ah battery reaches full charge in just 28 minutes—or you can get it to 80% in 19 minutes. Their 4Ah pack charges in just 45 minutes, reaching 80% in just 31 minutes. The 2.5Ah and are said to be using 18650 cells and the 4.0Ah and the 5.0Ah 21700 cells . There is no plans to discontinue there present 18v LXT platform.

Milwaukee M18 Gen-2 Mid-Torque Impact Wrenches
The MILWAUKEE M18 FUEL 3/8 in. Mid-Torque Impact Wrench w/ Friction Ring delivers the best power to weight ratio, most access in tight spaces, and faster removal speed. It provides 600 ft. lbs. of nut-busting torque and only weighs 5.0 lbs., making it extremely versatile, capable of performing a wide variety of applications. Its POWERSTATE Brushless Motor generates the power needed to quickly perform many tasks, such as removing large bolts or lug nuts. This cordless impact wrench is the most compact in its class, giving users access to stubborn fasteners in spaces where larger impact wrenches can’t fit without needing to disassemble components to reach bolts. Tri-LEDs surround the anvil to deliver brighter light with fewer shadows. 4-Mode DRIVE CONTROL offers greater precision with a range of pre-set RPM and IPM levels, selectable from a single button on the tool. By selecting Mode 4, AUTO SHUT-OFF control applies no more than 35 ft. lbs. of torque for hand-tight fastening applications to prevent overtightening. Mode 4 also features Bolt Removal Control that delivers users full torque output, then decreases RPMs once the bolt is loosened to prevent fastener drops
History of Milwaukee Tool
Founded in 1924 and headquartered in Brookfield, Wisconsin, USA, the Milwaukee Electric Tool Corporation is an American tool manufacturing company that is a subsidiary of Techtronic Industries along with Dirt Devil, Hoover, Ryobi, AEG and Vax.
Milwaukee Tools develops, manufactures and markets an array of hand tools, cordless power tools, hand saws, pliers, cutters, screwdrivers and much more. The company started off as the A. H. Petersen tool company, which was founded by partners A.H. Petersen and Albert F. Siebert.
However, it was auctioned off due to huge losses after the company’s production facility was destroyed by a fire in 1923. Albert F. Siebert acquired the remaining assets in 1924, and formed the Milwaukee Electric Tool Corporation.
Milwaukee Tools got a big break in the early 1930’s with an equipment specification rating granted by the federal government. After which, the company began manufacturing all of its tools in accordance with the U.S. Navy standard of equipment.
Adding to this, Milwaukee Tools also started developing and selling their own sanders, polishers, hand grinders and electric hammers. Another major innovation by Milwaukee Tools was the handheld 3/4-inch electric hammer drill, which also had the ability to be used as a standard drill.
Milwaukee Tools became a major supplier to the U.S. Navy, owing to the manufacturing boom resulting from World War II. The company today offers a large product lineup that includes framing nailers, impact wrenches, ultra quiet compressors, lithium battery packs, and USB rechargeable flashlights. Each product from the Milwaukee Tools range is backed by an industry leading warranty against any manufacturer defects.

DeWalt 500 Lumens Motion-Activated LED Rack/Shelf Light Kit (3-Piece)
When Harbor Freight first announced their line of Icon professional tools, they listed an early price of $2499 for their 56″ x 25″ x 45″ tool cabinet, comparing it to Snap-Ons $6775 price. When fully accessorized with a work center, end locker, and other add-ons, the total price was $7294 compared to $18,125 for Snap-On comparable setup.the 56″ x 25″ cabinet has a $3999 list price. As seen below it totes 8000 pounds of weight capacity, not sure how that test was done ,but seems high ..
I personally don’t know to many people walking into a harbor freight willing to spend $4000 on tool storage . Aren’t the reason they are there is to spend $1.00 on zip ties or $10 on some deep well sockets . I don’t think this was the right way to go considering their main clientele. I personally think taking there popular U.S. General and Yukon brands and making a solid ,but cheaper alternative to the Snap-ons of the world would be more popular with their customers. Someone leaving H.F with $8,000 less then when they walked in doesn’t seem to logical.

DEWALT DCF899B 20V MAX XR Brushless High Torque 1/2″ Impact Wrench Review
When it comes to the world of power tools, a formidable manufacturer is none other than DeWalt. But, does this DeWalt DCF899B Brushless Impact Wrench deliver the power you should expect from such a world-renown company?
It features a heavy-duty impact mechanism capable of handling a max torque of up to 700 ft-lbs and a maximum breakaway torque of 1,200 ft-lbs.
The impact wrench has a 3-speed selector switch for controlling drive/torque depending on your application. A bright LED light is also added to enable you to work in low light situations.
This DeWalt impact wrench model is a very well balanced and ergonomically designed unit. So, what are the features that we fell in love with in this unit?
DeWalt offers us this mode with a detent pin. The detent pin anvil contains a retaining pin that you must press to release any socket from the impact driver.
The detent pin is perfect for those people who intend to work in elevated positions and will be driving nuts or bolts of the same size. This is a common feature in construction type projects such as building or bridge assembly and water tower assembly, where a detent pin prevents the socket from unexpectedly falling out.
Makita 200 Piece Metric Bit and Hand Tool Set
Article by Sam Spinosa
The Makita 200 piece metric bit and hand tool set #D-37203. A single kit that can dish out bits for multiple tools. Impact, hammer, and standard drill drivers can find the majority of bits they need all in one place. Highly recommend to guys that either have no existing bit kits, or if you just want a ton of non impact stuff all in one spot. Some of the hand tools are a little chintzy, like the metric tape measure isn’t that useful, but there are several other great details about it.
* All the different size bits you would expect, with addition of some oversize drives: 3 sizes of T40 (torx), hex bits all the way up to H8, and 1 pozidrive p24.
* This kit has a book design where if opening the case from left to right, the right panel can also open revealing a set of hand tools on the bottom of the case.
* It has a complete line of nut setters from 5.5mm to 13mm. If you work on auto body panels you might appreciate the shorter profile 13mm for Dodge, 10mm for Toyota, etc.
* It has 3.2mm & 3.5mm drill bits, which make perfect pilot holes for standard #8 and #10 screws.
* Aside from the countersink, it comes with an 8mm spade bit which can also create the right size countersink for most commonly used flat head screws.
* The included 5 piece hole saw set goes from 1 to 2.5 inches
* The box cutter comes fully loaded with 7 refills and the screwdriver is a ratcheting driver.
* The blow mold resin case has everything labeled in resin, no stickers. I wish it was waterproof but it isn’t. Maybe middle of the road thickness of the resin. It’s definently not susceptible to being cut or chipped.
