Yes. Tablesaw and blower is mainly what I will be using them for. They are to large for many of my other hand tools.

They work great in the blower! Still haven't put it on my circular saw yet, probably no need. I usually run the 9.0 in that and it's perfect. The table saw and blower will be it's main use as well.

For my drill and impact, it's mostly the M12 also. I can't live without my little impact! Only pull out the 18v for running long screws or lots of them. The 12v is so nice and light and plenty of power, it's my workhorse no doubt.

I've got the fuel M12 ratchet and have been loving it for running lag bolts for TV mounts.

But wtf else would you use it for? Just keep a 13mm socket and a drill adapter in your drill/driver kit and save yourself a damn near useless tool.

I own 2 of the m12 ratchets.. They are great for TV mounts and satellite dishes as well. Mostly use it to work on cars though.

Re: New Trailer Build!


I don't use it for much else but I got an awesome deal on it .

It was more of a I can't walk away from a good deal vs I actually need this.

Not much to update yet. Took 6 inches of the width of my shelf. Making room to build a storage area to enclose batteries and Inverter for solar power system.

Also put a few metal strands on to hang my tools on for easy access.

Thanks.

Absolutely love the trailer. It's not very organized but it gets the job done. Im just crazy busy and have almost no time to work on it.


Edit. I will say having this trailer makes it possible for me to be in business. Without it I dont think I would want to be in business for myself. So nice.

Re: New Trailer Build!


I think it's probably better to build it as you go

You get a better idea of what you need

Worked out of pickup trucks and vans for over 20 years , I used to laugh at trailer guys

Now I wonder how I got along without it

Still working on my new van.

I didn’t want to “finish” it, but wanted to work out of it for a little while to see how I should finish it. Getting close.

Yep. If I would have built it right when I bought it I would not have built in a spot for 4x8 sheet goods. Now... I know I absolutely need a spot for them.. Will help out tremendously.
