    i should’ve gotten the 14 gallon one for the casters and handle.

    If I was going for a model, that’s the size I would have went for because of those features. You get tired of leaning down to move around a vac imo although as you said, it’s a trade-off of not being able to tuck it underneath tables in certain situations.

    I’ve always had the heated jacket on my radar but lately I’ve been reading complaints on heated jackets. From users of al brands not just one in particular.

    The wear it so often that when they are not wearing it, they seem to feel the cold more and funny enough on the spots where the heat mats are.

    Lol that’s funny. It’s just your body getting used to the heat. Just like a floridian will bundle up in a huge puffy jacket when they are in temperature under 50 degrees

    I was saving up for a second pair of full length Blaklader pants as my older pair are showing signs of being past their prime, but then I saw these new workboots on the Keen site.

    These will be great for working in the rain and mucky type of conditions where I often would need to get in and out of them faster than what a lace up boot provides. Seems there’s always something to go fetch inside the house no matter how hard I try and I hate having to unlace and put back on my boots.

    Very nice, are those on the list for redemption?

    Great boots
    I will get the safety model this year sometime, very comfortable and light.

    They’re workboots. My understanding is anything that are workboots is fine.

    This would be my fourth or fifth – I’m already losing track – Keen redemptions in the past year. I just love their footwear. I’ve bought three other Keen items/footwear out of pocket also since last year.

    They have a great returns program, which I’ve never had to use use – knock on wood – and they allow free shipping returns if you want to exchange or refund withing 30 days even if you’ve worn them outside. I don’t know of any other shoe company that does that.

    Those boots are pretty nice, I’m also thinking about getting a pair to try out. I got the regular Keen Tacoma and they’re pretty nice too.

    Yeah, I figured they are work boots, usually the csa triangle gives it away, I was just curious if they were on the list. They definitely make great footwear regardless if it is safely shoes / boots, or for daily footwear
    I have been wearing keen for years now.
    Might have to check the list out

    I know @madman_us has a few of the 36v batteries

    Bosch has a few 36V batteries.
    1.3ah, 2ah, 4ah and the 6ah battery is coming as well.
    Released in Europe a few month ago. We might see it too.
    Regarding to runtime, I currently only have the NAINA 36V blower and the runtime with a 4.0 battery is around 25-30mins on full throttle.
    More tools will be added soon.
    Weight of those batteries:
    2.0 = 700g
    4.0 = 1300g
    6.0 = 1300g (Currently not available, also it’s same size as the 4.0)

    I think that’s the 2.6amh?

    The 2.6 is more likely a german bosch battery from the green line.

    Does the 36volt line of battery’s need its own charger or it can use the 18volt line of chargers .

    Always willing to learn .

    Not directly Will.
    Bosch had a 36V charger, which has been discontinued tho. It was only designed for the 36V batteries; the BC830.
    They replaced it with the BC1836, a 18V and 36V battery 1 hour charger.
    Few month ago Bosch released a brand new fast charger which charges 18V batteries and 36V batteries; the BC3680 (I own this one, and I also opened a thread for that charger)
    As far I heard from a few friends of mine, who are IT guys, they said that the BC3680 is currently the best bosch charger out there.

    I’ve long thought about the heated jackets but Bosch (or anyone else for that matter) makes tall sizes….

    I think I am going to be redeeming for some more L-boxxes when I have enough points. I have several new tools that need proper storage.

    Thanks guys. I’m going to be ordering a Mafell kss saw that will more than likely be one of the 36v line. They come with the 94wh Betsey which I believe is 2.6mah. They use Bosch batteries.

    How tall are you? Mine fits well on my 6’4 250lb frame

    I’m saving for an L-Rack (the stack, not the individual drawer)
    I want to retire the 40 year old 4-drawer metal mechanics cabinet, and figure I can do that with Lrack drawers, and take less space

    I’ve been debating on the lracks aswell for the same thing basically. However I want them for in my trailer and am still iffy on how well they will stay shut while bouncing up and down the roads. And I do mean bouncing because our roads are horrible.
