Makita 18Vx2 Brushless 7-1/4” Circular Saw XSH06

XSH01 vs XSH06

Several years ago now Makita built a revolutionary 36V circ saw XSH01 that ran off 18V batteries. The traditional 28V and 36V platforms are all but extinct at this point because they required such massive batteries which made them annoyingly heavy for the more common tools such as drills and impacts. It was a great run but we are finally seeing a brushless upgrade for the 18Vx2 with the same 7-1/4” capacity, the XSH06PT kit and XSH06Z bare tool. So we put the saw in the hands of some professionals on the jobsite and actually took them apart to see what sort of improvements have been made.

Grey Pneumatic Duo Socket Sets for Impacts & Ratchets

Many of us have multiple socket sets, perhaps even full drawers of them, SAE or Metric, 6 point or 12 point, standard of deep, chrome or impacts, all with various drive sizes ¼”, 3/8”, ½”, etc. Over the years we’ve seen lots of All-in-One solutions for sockets but we would not consider many of them for professionals. The Grey Pneumatic Duo Sockets would be one exception there, impact rated sockets with thin wall design that allow them to perform exceptionally well as a hand ratchet set. Could you really have just one sockets set? Continue reading
