That being an new/updated version of what I had, might do better than the red tools....



Here's what's in my stable https://uploads.tapatalk-cdn.com/201...c98321ca3d.jpghttps://uploads.tapatalk-cdn.com/201...773d6471af.jpghttps://uploads.tapatalk-cdn.com/201...a025011fba.jpghttps://uploads.tapatalk-cdn.com/201...267d089881.jpg

I found that that particular model didnt feel that much more powerful than their smaller Plus model. Some days I wish I just went straight to a roto hammer.

I'm debating picking one of these up, even though I don't really have a use for it... yet

This depot looked like it was clearing out all its heavy Bosch stuff, the chipping guns were marked down as wellhttps://uploads.tapatalk-cdn.com/201...27b623ca52.jpg

Picked up a couple of things to make work a little easier.

Not sure if it's the same tool but I got this one a year or so ago for a bit less. It was a tool only deal for me.

Best I can tell, its the "new and improved" version of yours. Part of the shroud comes off so you can get right up to the wall, too

I dont do much digging, mostly just for demo work and small sections of concrete.

I saw that, and I just couldn't bite. I do regret it a bit, but it would probably sit there unloved for quite a while. While I love the single pass of a 4x, I'd get much more use out of something else.

You had me worried so I gave it a try in my backyard. It did great. Seems less powerful at first but it has soft start and electronic power control so it stays consistent.

Ended up buying a Cold Shot Pipe freeze kit off ebay. It uses Co2 to freeze pipe so you can work on it without draining the line.

So maybe it is just me, and maybe just the style. for hand helds, I must prefer the bulldog style for ground work. The vertical motors for wall and ceiling.

do you have a favorite dirt bit?

I use a milwaukee branded add on shroud (I think its a rebranded dustless technnologies , or vise versa), and all I can tell you is that the part that opens upon the bosch one is more sturdy. THe milwaukee one you will loose rather quickly.

The other thing is that the bosch one isn't spring loaded- meaning that it doesn't form as good a suction if you even lift off a little bit.

I had bought the dustless tech one from depot, what a pos. As soon as I turned my grinder on, the thing blew its screws out. Found them all, put it back together and tried again, same result. What a waste of $50 or whatever it cost me

ya that dustless tech didn't look very strong. glad i passed on it. saving my pennies for a over priced Makita one.
if the dewalt one fits my Makita grinder ill get that one. I like how it slides open. looks stronger than those hatch door style ones.
