    I know it’s amazing Bill, I hope one day Bosch starts expanding its line,

    That would be nice a dual 18V battery cordless miter saw would be awesome.

    The next 18v cordless tool that I hope to obtain is Milwaukee’s SDS-Max Fuel brushless 1-9/16″ rotary hammer, due out any day. I do love my corded Bosch 1-5/8″ one, but it’d be so nice to be able to drive ground rods without having to drag a cord out, assuming that it’ll have the grunt for such.

    I’m going for the half inch socket impact wrench. Waiting for it to be added to the list. Fingers crossed Jim gets the go ahead.

    what is the model number of the half inch socket? if that does get added to the list, i may have to get that next

    Is “IWBH182” what you were looking for? Would this have enough power to handle changing the lug nuts on a car?

    great job ripping plywood with a 40t Diablo blade.

    A 40T blade on a cordless saw? That’s not going to help your battery life!

    I rip and crosscut 1/2″ soft ply for built-ins, closets, etc. I really don’t notice it slowing the saw down at all and the quality of cut is great. For cutting 2x material or doing sheathing, etc, the 24t blade goes on.

    Wow, that’s awesome Kevin, what model number, is it the bare tool, the high impact, with the friction ring?
    Thanks for asking for it :)

    It’s the IWT180B ring fit bare tool model.

    There was a fair bit of analysis in this post in this thread and a few posts in that thread afterwards.

    It’s a toss up between the 18voltx2 sliding miter saw or the blower.

    Woa!! Hadn’t heard of that one. A cordless sds max!!?? Sounds like a battery eater. I guess with one of their 9ah batts it would do well.

    Here’s a clip of Rob Robillard demoing it at last summer’s symposium.

    1/2″.. Okay, that makes more sense. I typically use an 18t on my Makita cordless…mostly dimensional stuff. I’d probably default to my track saw for built ins.

    Just looked on the Bosch website, they have several cordless SDS max rotary hammers, some 36 volt and some 18.

    You sure those weren’t SDS-Plus, as opposed to Max?

    Maybe you already are, and just don’t know it. 🙂

    I don’t know if that a cordless tool I’d want. For some things cords are good.

    I’m really wanting another cordless bandsaw. I’m finding myself using my sawzall where I would really prefer to be using a bandsaw.

    @kswiss
    ,
    I guess this would work good if the item you are cutting is more in the open. The sawzall will work for the tight areas best.

    For me, I think a 18V circular saw.

    What is the advantage of the bandsaw over the sawsall?

    Yes you are correct, my bad.
