  1. Nice photo. They both need a full rack of weights on front.
  2. When I bought my M18 Fuel impact, it was known as the Snap-on killer online. Today I was at a shop where someone was trying to remove a wheel bearing nut with a Snappy CT8850. Couldn't budge it. I gave him my M18 and it ripped right off. No contest.
  3. Real Tool Reviews on YouTube compared the M18 to the DeWalt. The DeWalt was just a smidge higher on reversing torque, like 10 ft-lbs. Basically comparable output. With a 9.0 battery I would expect the M18 to perform even better.
  4. I've bought a number of Fuel tools since this post, all have been very impressive. The latest is the miter saw with the 9.0 batteries. It cuts just like a corded saw, and the batteries last forever.
  5. I have LED lights that run off my Milwaukee M18 batteries. No more disposable batteries or extension cords.
  6. At the antique pulls years ago someone painted a W4 yellow and green to tick off one of the die-hard JD guys. When he ran his unweighted G against the W4 in its weight class and lost, he turned red as a beet and went home.
  7. You have to be a member to view the photos.
  8. My I-14 still has the starter. I can look to see if there is a tag.
  9. There's no reason at all you can't just call him up and talk it over with him. Ask him what the problem is and tell him what you're thinking.
  10. I'd give him an ultimatum: follow through on his end, or agree to break the deal.
  11. My first truck was an '85 W350 crew cab short bed with a 360 and four speed. Next truck I bought new, '99 2500 Cummins five speed. Converted to six speed and turned up to 500/1,200. Nothing around with four wheels could keep up.
  12. Our pole barns have trusses at four feet oc. These are the full triangulated trusses with bottom chords.
  13. My bank charges 3%, I think. Some banks it's free. Last summer I walked in and dumped 8031 pennies through their machine. Only jammed twice.
  14. Machinery in sheds, livestock in barns. Anything open sided would be a shed.
  15. We had no apples here this year.
