Ridgid K-5208

If you’ve cleaned drains at any point in your career in the last 100 years, changes are good you are familiar with Ridgid Drain Cleaning machines. There also have not been a lot of design changes in recent years, however we are now seeing a little competiton coming from Milwaukee Tools and other cordless tool brands looking to take a piece of the pie. Ridgid of course has a big leg up here with many years of product development so we are excited to see a totally new design, built on what’s worked for them, with the K-5208 Section Drain Cleaners, available as machine only 61688, with 4x 15’ cable 61692 or 7x 15’ cables 62378.

Milwaukee M18 FUEL Chainsaw 2727-21HD – INSIDE LOOK

2727-21HD Review

The Milwaukee M18 Chainsaw was one of the most anticipated new tools for 2018, certainly not the first cordless chainsaw to hit the market but the first to do it with just 18 volts, as competiton is at 36V, 54V, or even as high as 80V. Could Milwaukee deliver a professional 16” chainsaw and still make it compatible with the hundreds of other tools? We originally posted on the 2727-21HD in May (Coptool post) but now that we’ve got it out in the field with professionals at Ahlum & Arbor Tree Preservation we wanted to take a closer look and see if it’s lived up to the hype as well as how they might hold up under wear.

Makita 18V Subcompact 6-1/2″ Circular Saw XHS04

Home Depot recently named the Makita Subcompact lineup of tools, the winner of their 2018 Innovation Award. This Makita lineup consists of a range of tools, including the 18V Subcompact 6-1/2” Circular Saw, model #XHS04.

It features 12V size and portability, with 18V of power, and is advertised as being “ideal for any contractor seeking a more compact cutting solution for framing; roofing; form-work; and more.” Is that true? Can this Makita subcompact circular saw really deliver on the jobsite? to answer that question, we gave it to foreman AJ Delancey for his feedback. Then we took it to Ohio Power Tool where Kris Cousins opened it up to see how Makita designed an 18V saw that features 5,000 RPM.  Continue reading

Makita 18V Rebar Tying Tool XRT01TK & XRT01ZK

Makita Rebar Tie

Our friends at Makita have built a wide offering around cordless solutions for specific concrete applications, many things that are simply not offered by Dewalt, Hilti, Milwaukee or any other major cordless platform. The launch of the XRT01 Rebar Tie tools makes a lot of sense adding to the 2 rebar cutting options XCS02T1 ($1095) and XCS01Z ($1999), also 18V concrete vibrators, along with one of the most powerful cordless SDS-Max in the XRH07PTU ($699) and a handful of other concrete specific products. So what makes this rebar tie gun so special?
