Why are those so heavy empty ? How do you get them up the stairs when they are full? Even their tool bags are heavy

Heavy duty comes at a weight cost. You can pull them apart to get them up stairs or if you have a 2nd guy he can grab the bottom hold and help it up the stairs.

Mine full weighs over 200 lbs I'd guess.

Yep. That's what kerning is all about--really an artistic thing vs mathematical formula. Relatively easy to do on a computer screen before you commit.

No way a general-purpose template can handle that.

At least with wood, it's not so bad if you screw up your first try vs doing it with stonecutting. :laughing:

I'm still with a learning curve. Learning how each letter needs to be routed. The N is tricky, I went on the wrong side and had to route out a lot on the bottom to make it look "better".

I thought all the cool guys now use CNC machines for that now:jester:

1st word. Wow.
2nd word. Sick.
3rd word impressive.


Very compact. Very versatile. Plenty of power. Easy to use. Impressively accurate. DC with bag excellent. You would think it was hooked up to a vac.

I precut 500sf of decking for 5 small decks. 10degree back cut ( bevel) on ends.
Came out to be 120cuts on trex. 1-2 bars left on Battery. Maf uses metabo's batteries that I think fit on all there tools.
Also made about 15-20 mscl cuts on pt and test cut on decking.
You can easily get through the day with 2 batteries.
Really impressive lil saw.
Perfect balance. No slipping even on wet decking and lumber. Just measure. Make tick. Drop and cut. You easily slept your pencil mark. It really saves a tremendous amount of time for me especially on this job by not pulling out the sqr to use as a guide.

Hilt was having a sale on a few things.

Ending up buying a TE60AVR and getting (3) TE3-C drills for free.
I was wanting to buy a new SDS Max drill for one of the crew trucks anyways. Ended up getting all 4 drills for less then the normal price of the TE60 alone.

I took my bag collector to my local Tailor and had him make a bigger bag. Works great.

They sell a larger bag? The one that comes with it sucks as in the draw string breaks easily.

Thats too heavy for me, I work out of a van so its a bit easier for me since i know where everything is and what ever I need can be brought in
quickly and can fit in my tool bag and a square bucket.

My Packouts must be 2-300 pounds as well, if I bring everything. It sucked breaking them apart and stacking them in the truck. Lifting the bottom roller section with all my battery tools was a real bummer after a long day.

I recently started running the trailer to the job again and it makes a world of difference. Just stack and roll up or down the ramp.

I had my Fat Max roll out system which I liked better because you unlatch it and push it apart and it exposes the 3 sections.

But it was 110 lbs and at the end of the day I had to lift it into the truck. I did it one day and got a small tweak in my back and I said that's it. I can't be doing this, I'm gonna hurt myself.

So now I can lift them in a box at a time. The bottom weighs 65ish I guess, but that's pretty easy to lift at the end of the day.
