Re: Cordless Combo Kit ... Your Favorite And Why


Got the Dewalt about 6 months ago. It has surpassed my expectations. Super light, and rips through lumber like a corded. Battery life is not too bad either. Would be nice if it was cord capable, but we have so many batteries now, it is never an issue.

The Dewalt cordless.

I rarely use the corded tablesaw since I bought the tracksaw.

I used it today to mill some window sills out of cedar, but havenít used it for probably 6 months before that.

If I used the tool more often I would get the FV, but I donít need it.

I'm heavy Dewalt because I got suckered 20 years ago. I occasionally drool over the Milwaukee surge impact, but on balance, I'm happy. Having a battery "wormdrive" and tracksaw improves my life a lot. If they ever came out with an ac/dc 10" tablesaw, I'm be all over it.

Unlike some, I'm not willing to have 2 different chargers on the job -- I move around a lot, so lugging crap back and forth is the bane of my existence.
I ended up getting a powerstation, so now I sorta have an ac/dc table saw .

I hope Milwaukee is going to release the power station sooner than later. I got 4 12ah ready to go on it...

looks pretty decent.. it rolls.. charges m12 and m18. the more I scroll the weirder it gets.. shows diagrams of it running off m18s and a car battery... IDK lol

Re: Cordless Combo Kit ... Your Favorite And Why


I looked at your link, very interesting. So it doesn't look like it operates on the principles of a dewalt power station. Dewalt power station is take 4 batteries, provide provisions for parallel charging, and when activated (not at the same time) powers up a modified sine wave inverter. Its also designed to sit at the top of the tuffbox stack (which is how I have mine). Your available power is whatever your batteries have, and you can swap them at your leisure.

The Milwaukee version looks to be put a automotive sized battery (whether it be lithium or not, thats a different question) but most likely user provided. That is hooked into some electronics which will then provide charging capability for both the 12v and 18v batteries (though it looks like only one), and then possibly an inverter of some sort which can power 120v ac devices. This is designed to be rolled and at the bottom of the stack.

Theres obviously pros and cons to this setup- for starters, the battery for this setup would most likely have to be at a minimum an AGM deep cycle. Those are heavy still. If its lithium, thats yet another battery, and can be quite costly. A lithium version would be like any of the commerically avaliable "solar generators" or power packs sold today, just with a charger plugged into the cigarette lighter, and shoved into a milwaukee pack out.

The ability to charge only 1 battery pack (or 2 if your counting the 12v as well) seems less ideal. Without lithium battery its the peak inverter draw that become a problem if they were trying to match the 3600W peak of the dewalt.

The only benefit here is capacity- as the use of a car sized battery would be leaps and bounds more power storage, unless you had dozens of packs lying around.

They do show a 6 battery device... possibly 20amp? So many products on that page will be interesting see what they release.

Looks to me like that setup is expandable from 2 batteries on up, so you can add packs depending on your power needs

Re: Cordless Combo Kit ... Your Favorite And Why


Like everyone says it depends on the work you do. If you are only investing in 1 battery line then looks at what tools you want to get under said line. For me no one tool line makes everything I need. So I invested in a few lines.
