Tool Blog
Chris   November 01, 2016   2   1  
Many tradesmen, myself included, are not interested in the biggest, badest new tool on the market. What makes us happy is a tool that can do the job, yet takes up as little weight or space as possible; this is what Makita's Black line of 18V Sub-Compact Brushless Drivers seems to be offering.

It will now be easier than ever for 18V DeWalt Cordless Tool users to find higher capacity batteries with lithium-ion technology, all thanks to DeWalt’s new DCA1820 20V to 18V battery adaptor. The new battery adaptor will allow most of DeWalt’s 18V Cordless Tools to function off of Lithium-ion battery’s from the newer DeWalt 20V Max system.

Makita is known for making great cordless tools that all use the same 18V lithium-ion battery. In fact, Makita has bragging rights to over 100 tools that are part of their LXT battery platform; and it looks like it is going to grow by at least one more cordless “tool” pretty soon. That is, if you can count a cordless Makita coffee maker as a tool.  Amazon has a new listing for the Makita DCM500Z 18V LXT Cordless Coffee Maker, though currently listed as unavailable, it will hopefully be available soon.

Just when you think tool manufacturers have packed all the runtime you could expect to get into an 18V battery, Bosch shows that they are not quite ready to call it quits. The new Bosch BAT622 18V FatPack now packs an industry first 6.0Ah into the new battery.

Is this the year of cordless brushless drywall screwdrivers or what? Not long after the other brands announce their models, Bosch hits us with their very own. So what sets the Bosch SGH182 Screwgun apart from the rest? At 3.5lbs with a 4.0Ah battery, it is the lightest of the bunch, but it might also be the most powerful.

It was only a few months ago that Makita’s 4.0Ah (BL1840) 18V batteries came out, and I wondered then, how long it would be until their highly anticipated 5.0Ah (BL1850) would follow. It turns out the wait will not be long at all, as the Makita BL1850 are set to come out in December 2014.

I have said in the past that you don’t always need to own the most powerful tool; there are more aspects of the tool to consider, like weight or price. So if size or weight are more important, Bosch has the tool for you. They say their DDB181 packs a big punch, yet while 18V, it is the size of a 12V Drill.

Makita has announced that they have added a new 13-inch cordless fan to their ever growing LXT 18V line. The fan has three speed settings and it can even oscillate to cover a larger area. A built-in timer can be used to automatically shut the fan down after 1, 2, or 4 hours. Makita says it can run for up to 4 hours on a single 4.0Ah battery, but the included AC adapter can be used for longer run times.
