    Thanks for the new thread,
    Guess I’ll be checking the list out, and trying to figure what next.

    I’ve got lots of time to decide what’s next. Waiting to see if the 12v router will hit the list, looking at the 18v grinder/Core kit, another corded router or maybe an 18v blower will become available. So many choices!

    Now I have the 18V Blower on the way. I am not really sure what I want save for. I thought about getting a pair of Blaklader Bantam Work Shorts,or 18V Compact Jobsite Radio for camping and for yardwork and too use in the shop. I also thought about getting 12V Lithium-Ion Pocket Reciprocating Saw. Also I keep my eye anything new hitting the list.

    Haven’t seen any changes to the prize list offerings since Jim left. I’ve wondered if we ever will.

    This is a good question. I hope we do. It might take awhile. Your right I haven’t seen any changes since Jim left.

    Having just got the blower, I can safely say I think you’ll be surprised by how great it is. It’s really small, but it has a lot of power!

    I have gone through the list a few times over the past year and put down all the things I think I want and then organized them in order. Hopefully, by the end of next year I should have everything I’ve labeled as a “need to get” lol, but by then hopeful there’ll be more added to the list!

    Haha, multiple ones, what are you a tool collection person too lol,
    So if you would say, what is the most different thing aside from the size of vacuum capacity, what is the most beneficial aspects of each vacuum? From the 9 and 14,

    tool collector as well haha
    Not much of a huge difference, only the upgraded casters and the extra handle on the 14gal unit.

    I’m hoping the new cordless router hits the list, I really like the asymmetrical base for edge treatments, but I’m still planning on getting a line laser first.

    I hadn’t thought about using one of the radios for camping – I like that idea. Can the big one be battery powered? I haven’t looked at it in a while.

    Yes, they can run on either the 18V or 14.4V barreries

    Oh that’s great, I would love to have that for beach days and camping…hmm, might have to bump it up the list a bit! I know lots of people here have and love them.

    The upright handle is pretty well the primary reason I want the 14 gallon vac versus the 9 gallon. Although if I’m not mistaken, the 14 gallon has a better hose storage set up than the 9 gallon as well. EDIT: I went and looked at them both after posting that, and they have identical hose storage. END EDIT.

    I also figure with the buttons up higher, especially the one to deactivate the A/C function which I think I’ll be reaching for often, is another plus for me with the 14 gallon model with needing to have to bend over to reach for. Bending over and crouching activities are real killers for me sometimes if doing them too much over the course of a work day. My whole shop set up and job worksites will be such as to avoid that as much as possible. It’s an ‘Achilles Heel’ of sorts for me.

    I told you that I got the email last week saying that my order was being processed, but the points still have not come off. They said Wednesday and it didn’t happen last week, so waiting for this Wednesday again to see what happens. By the time I get the boxes, I think I will be able to redeem again…lol.

    I look forward to getting it. I am sure I will be impressed with it.

    As much as I would like the bigger radio. I will stick with compact one.

    Good choice if you’re spending some time on the roof. It’s not exactly portable if you move around a lot.
