    I’ve been renting tools a lot this past week…does that count?

    First was that walk behind concrete cutter, and then today was a generator and Makita 40lb jackhammer. Only the fun stuff!

    You paid money and got a tool (for a time). I’d say it counts. Are those Honda generators quiet?

    Hard to tell over the jackhammer, lol. But when I started it up it didn’t seem too loud.

    In my experience, the Honda generators are very quiet. I’ve rented a couple, both the 2000 and 3000 series. Each was impressive…they throttle down and idle on their own and ramp up immediately when necessary.

    I have pretty limited experience with generators, but I did notice that – I just didn’t realize that’s not common to most generators. It was such a simple machine too – only a few controls and it just worked. It was pretty heavy though, a bit of a struggle to get it off the truck by myself and then back on when I was done, but otherwise, a pretty great tool to have. And for the entire time I was using it, it used an imperceptible amount of fuel. I did shut it down while I wasn’t jackhammering, so maybe that helped, but I probably had it running for at least half an hour and it didn’t look like it even touched the amount of fuel it had.

    Honda have been well known for decades for their excellent and quiet generators. You pay more, but quality costs money.

    Who would really buy a cordless miter saw? Unless your off the grid or a power outage I would not think it would useful with swapping out batteries depending on use.

    Sounds like it’s not going to be Ryobi’s most successful product. Appears to be aimed at the DIY market, for sure.

    Agreed, if your livelihood depends on it they are absolutely worth the money, I have been a very big fan of their engines for a long time.

    if the 36 V Makita miter box is like the other 36V Makita tools, you would get a lot of cuts out of a charge. It would be great for small projects. I could actually see one being very handy due to it’s smaller size and no cord. there have been many times I would have liked the option of no cord on a saw.

    I got these beauties today! Titanium handles with steel heads…kind of the best of both worlds.

    They are made by Martinez Tools, (the guy who made the Stiletto brand famous). He claims these are an upgrade over the Ti-bone. The steel head can take all the abuse you can throw at it, unlike the Ti-bone…which is apparently prone to breaking under certain situations.

    Us in the construction trade buy cordless 18volt sliding miter saws. I love mine and have been using it for days now.
