    And your right Mark the other one isn’t that old, not to mention I take very good care of my equipment.

    You gotta take good care of the tools that make your $$. Why leave them dirty and all crappy? I have tools that are many years old that I use daily yet look barely used.

    Well I kinda take care of my equipment. All of my demo hammers are at least 15 years old and guess what, they are used in dirt and concrete, they do get dirty and I don’t take them to the tool wash. Sorry.

    Where on God’s green earth did you get the impression that I wash my jackhammers? Again they are very new, that has everything to do with why they are clean.

    My response was not to you Cali, it was to NJ Builder. And it’s fine with me that guys take special care with their tools.

    However I’ve been known to hose down my equipment from time to time.

    I would be here hanging out even if there were no tools. There’s some great people over here to talk to. Getting the jackhammer was just a bonus.

    Agreed, I got a jack hammer and I’m still here too

    I think I got a little overspray on my drill from painting in the garage yesterday, But I don’t think I’ll be taking it to the carwash LOL. It didn’t look new after the first day I used it. But I do keep my sockets and wrenches clean

    I’m not saying wash them. But I do wipe my tools down. I even use a leaf vac every now and then to clean my miter saw off and out. I’m amazed of what comes out of the head.

    I will admit it – I sometimes wash my tools. Occasionally on a rain day or day with nothing planned I will grab the air hose in the shop and blow the dust off of tools then hit them with a rag and some Dirtex if they need it.

    Nothing wrong with taking care of you tools. I clean my stuff regularly. As a kid I was not aloud to put tools away that were dirty. Just kinda stuck with me.

    I try to wipe down my tools and things every so often. I hate having a mess of tools. It’s amazing what you find some times if crap is washed off. Cracks, breaks, etc. I’m not anal by any means in my cleaning, but a moist rag to knock off all the big crap does wonder.

    Yeah, one of the biggest bonuses you could get! Glad to hear you guys talking about sticking around even if the rewards went away.

    Everytime I use my table or miter saws i blow them off with the air hose or leaf vac i carry on the trailer.

    It’s amazing how much dust and dirt get in there.

    I remember a discussion on a forum about someone asking how people cleaned their work vans out. One guy said he opened up the back doors and got in the front with the leaf blower. While comical to me, I thought, what a great idea! It’s how I’ve cleaned my trailer out ever since. No more brooms!

    even with a vac attached they still hoard dust buried throughout the housing.

    I use a corded leaf blower. Cleans off my decks and such fast at the end of the day. Good idea about the trailer lol

    The bigger one is a little big for digging footings, it is great for concrete. That little Bosch is a good size to dig with.

    I saw the new one go up there. How does it compare to the one you guys got that was on there, a little smaller?

    I love giving my tool a good blowing off! I keep a blower nozzle in my bags just for that.
