That's impressive. I wonder what the 9.0 batteries will cost?

The only downfall I see to Fuel is the fact that it's all kind of expensive. Not Festool expensive but definitely approaching Hilti...

I've got a ladder rack on top of mine but it's a pain if you only need it for a few minutes. Also adds a lot of height to the trailer. I've snagged bunch of low hanging branches.

You guys like to live dangerously. :laughing:

I don't know why but this thread strikes me as funny. I never really thought getting tools on the job was such a problem. Stocking material on site is usually the challenge.
