I bought this for jack rafters as my 18v 165mm saw didn't have the depth to cut them. This saw is a beast cuts through them with no trouble, I don't even find it very heavy tbh

chris.ogle

(y) This is still a great deal for what it is, to be fair. Just worth knowing that it's fairly old tech now and that other options are out there to compare it against.

cantbRssed1

Thanks, I'll look into the 660.

chris.ogle

They do a 36v track saw and a 36v brushless conventional circular saw, the DHS782 which if I remember correctly is track compatible. Alternatively, the DHS660 is left handed, much smaller than this, single battery 18V but brushless so not far behind in power and I would suggest is a more versatile saw. Its equivalent in power to the 680. Depends if you need the 190mm blade over a 165mm.

cantbRssed1

This is a left-handed saw making it a much better option for a cordless tracksaw setup if you are right-handed than the other Makita cordless draws which are all right-handed. I would also suspect that it has much more power and is obviously heavier so would probably work as a plunge saw. Im tempted to be honest because of its orientation as I want a cheap tracksaw (using a DIY track)

Excellent price for an SDS+ drill from a reputable brand. 3yr warranty incl.
FishEyedMeerkat

Yeah, Its a shame. Was going to add it to the toolbox.

Nayprob

I wouldn't want to chisel too long with this, if its just plaster and not render you would probably get away with it for while but it'll overheat with too much work.

Joseph_Woods

Would this be ok for removing plaster from walls (with the right chisel attachment)?

Its not built for that, just rent a core drill and set for the day, about 25quid. Unless you want to chain drill which never looks as good and takes alot longer.

Make sure the socket you’re using is rcd protected... wife started complaining that the tv went off :D

Zandana

Luckily, it’s like they thought about it because the lead is moulded at the back, and the main length has a screw on plug so just a few minutes with some snips and a screwdriver and back up and running

Zandana

I have this and I think it’s great. Have only cut through the cord once, and that was as soon as I switched it on because I didn’t unwrap it all :D

I wouldn't save money here, the cordless makita range is amazing.

leehack

This has been the go to wrench for the scaffolding industry for around 5 years, so that gives an idea on its pedigree. As for an impact driver, if it does the things you need it to, stick with that, but you'll always come up against a nut that just won't budge eventually, you are also overworking your tool. The force to undo a bolt, particularly one that has been done up for a long time and rusted etc. is more than it is to tighten it. If you tightened a bolt to the same torque at which you try to undo them, you'd end up stripping most of them. Scaffolders do not use this wrench at full capacity to give you an idea, so the nuts holding up those huge structures and workforces do not need the huge torque to do the maximum it can, in fact most sites now actually have a specific setting to which these bolts should be tightened and medium is the optimum setting as I understand. When you loosen a bolt, there is much less chance of a strip as the nut can ride up the bolt, so as soon as it is cracked, its undone. Torque when tightening up is a different setting.

nbuuifx

Genuine question, how much better is this than the impact driver? I use my dtd152 with a half inch adapter. It undid old rusty bolts on the exhaust no problem, I also used it to take the wheels off and to undo the 19mm bolts and 17mm bolts that held the calipers on. I couldn't budge then with the ratchet but the impact driver did them in seconds. The impact driver does 165Nm. Where as this claims up to 400Nm, but only 280Nm fastening torque? I don't need a wrench as much as the impact driver and have been very impressed with the impact driver but just wondered if it was worth me keeping an eye out for one of these?

alasrati

Thanks everyone. So many answers. I will check them all out.

As someone said, Halfords advanced are great. I have a cheap set of US Tools I got at a market and have served me ok. My personal preference is Sealey but as long as they're rated for impact use and 6 sided, you'll be fine

Is the 30cm too small? It's normally £178 in power tool world rather than the £199 in fastfix, but the 40cm are normally £229 :/ probably not worth the extra but if it's not big enough not worth getting either? :/

Jonesey4658

Makita have said they are continuing to invest in lxt.....we shall see. With any luck the the lxt range might come down in price. I’d certainly keep buying the 18v stuff as it’s more than good enough (y) And as for using lxt on new 40v range, they are not compatible.

TonySquared

I think I actually saw a converter, so you can use lxt with a 40v battery. I have swapped to CXT, find them so much easier to use and plenty of power for my needs.

I need to upgrade my Makita drill drivers. I've had them for many years now and they have been fantastic. I have two drill drivers (not hammer) and 4 X 2Ah NiMH batteries and two chargers. Both drills are now falling apart, the grips are falling apart on both, the Chuck is falling apart on one and the other one changes speed by itself during use. The batteries have been fantastic, I can't believe the original batteries are still going. I'm a DIY user but tend to heavily use then for various projects, then they might get left for a month or two but the batteries are always good. They have been well worth the money. However the bare units are on their last legs. So I need a replacement, I often wished is had combi drills when I got these, so the 482 seems to fit the bill the best. First question, do the letters after 482 make any difference. I realize there is a colour difference with some of these but that doesn't bother me. But even with the same colour there seems to be some variations of letters. I've always liked having 2 chargers and 2 spare batteries as it has meant that I just leave 2 on charge and 2 in the tools. I also like having 2 units as I can use one as a drill and one as a driver, which most of the jobs I do require. Ideally I'd like two 482s with 3 batteries and a charger. I don't think the slow charger would bother me too much given that it only takes an hour for a 3ah battery. I think I may well get a 482 with at least 2 batteries at the moment and a charger. Then either get another bare unit in the future or a bare unit and battery if the deal is better. If I end up with 2 batteries and 2 units, I think I'd want the fast charger but if I have a spare battery or two then I think I'd get away with the slow charger. Any ideas which deal is best or if there is something that would suit me better?

Re the insert the advert doesn’t say it comes with it so maybe we have been lucky, I would rather not build expectations, people could always call and ask (y) I actually think the liners are a bit of overkill in some instances as they don’t let you make best use of the space in the box, I have just ordered 5 more Makpacs and a dolly trolley for them to connect to for pushing around, arriving Monday, I didn’t order liners as too many tools to get in them.

PerryGunn

Might be worth editing your earlier post that said that the insert isn't included...? I couldn't think of a use for the towel other than using it to remove excess bit grease and that would have ruined it very quickly so I pinned it to my workshop wall... makes me look a right fanboi XD

After having used a very basic budget corded grinder, I now wouldn’t get one unless it has a brake. Primarily for safety but a PITA without when you are doing multiple cuts.

Not unless you really need one - they’re very dangerous. The only tool that really scares me.

I bought mine through Nuts and Bolts and they used DX Delivery, they gave me a 10hr delivery slot (not 8) 8am-6pm then I received a email saying failed delivery, rang up they said the driver had knocked, no card, no knock on the door, he said the driver was 9 meters away in my road, I can see the whole length of my road prob 100meters, no vans at all. Worst delivery company I have had to experience, I thought Yodel was bad!! I've rang Nuts and Bolts and told them I needed the tool for today as on a job in the morning, they were very polite and said they will refund me, I just hope they stop using this dreadful courier as its now cost them a sale

Gadgetdeals

Mine is expected Friday, who was the courier? Is it a known useless courier or could it just be the agent in your area that’s useless

Fatchops11

Mine was supposed to be delivered today, I received a email saying failed delivery, no calling card left and I had been at home all day! I've told them to send it back to the supplier and also rang them saying I don't want it after receiving a 8 hour window for delivery and I was at home all day! I will now purchase via another supplier, someone who uses a decent courier service
