    how much does 8 yds of mulch weigh?

    I'm tempted to say that in general abrasive components are not great at HF. It's just too easy to reduce quality on those. They just don't do a great job or don't last long. (But I have not had either a HF cutting wheel or a grinding wheel...

    Welcome!

    ^ mmm, whereas I agree with your general premise to be careful about such thing and that a safety pin would be good, I'm not sure I understand your mentioned specific beef with the jack. If anything like mine, those are designed to lock up...

    of course, the higher the efficiency the better for energy production, but the difference between an 18 and a 20%, say, efficiency module is likely more than compensated for by the difference generated by smart reorientation during the day, if...

    nice! how are the ways? were they hand-scraped originally, if you can tell?

    many many vids on YT about best and worst buys at HF

    any thoughts on which system (considering all the tools options) is more extensive nowadays and may have important tools that others don't? Or issues like battery implementation direction (2x18V tools vs 40V-only tools for example)?

    ^ how much time between alarm and loss of brakes?

    In this vid he was saying that those nut-busting torques advertised are bogus. OTOH, he also said that he measured higher fastening and unfastening torques than Milwaukee advertised, which is good. Check out his other videos which are more...

    check out this guy's YT channel ("Real Tool Reviews"). He does seriously quantitative reviews. He has something like 36 videos of reviews of impact wrenches. Including some of the brands talked about above:

    Marshcat, did they give you a hard time about the airbags?
  • e9999
    LOL, a figment of my imagination, that's what. Shameful, I admit. No excuse. Will correct that.
  • e9999
    well, I thought about that, of course, but I don't know how I'd terminate that securely without a big knot up top, given my poor sewing skills. And that might not be that well received by people who matter...

    ^ doesn't HF market their Hercules line as better quality than the Bauer? (It is more limited now, it seems, though, but that is likely to change with time, I imagine.)
  • e9999
    I have a bunch of cordless power tools from different brands but mostly Rigid (not entirely by choice really, but quite happy with them actually). I'm wondering about the best brand of tools to get started with today, considering the investment...

    seems like some of you whizzes change leather covers on your seats every other weekend. Me, I find that a bit daunting. So any advice on the best / least expensive way to fix this -if only temporarily so it does not damage anything inside-...

    I have seen some of those adapters but they were typically bulky and adversely affecting the compactness and balance of the tool, I thought. Hopefully, that has or will change.

    e9999 replied to the thread Hood latch or cable?.
    Sounds like it's the trigger arming that was the problem. Odd a stretched cable would have caused that. Yes, keep it all well lubed. You don't want to be in a situation where you can't open the hood any more... See a thread of mine out here...

    e9999 replied to the thread Keyed 12 volt Source in the rear.
    many many years ago, I put in a relay back there (2003) for the trailer plug, tapping into some wire that was only key-on. Forgot the details. There is a thread here on trailer power feedback something. Anyway, at least for that year, there...

    there are some solid review vids of impact on YT, some with good measurements. Not surprisingly, the advertised torque ratings are often optimistic..

    I'm in trouble... I've fallen in love with Oak from my trees. This is some wood! I can't bear to burn it any more. And to think that I thought that pine is real wood when I was young and naive... Who needs a dozen...
