@Shane Holland an e-mail from ToolNut said buy Milwaukee before a price increase. Can you shed some light on this?

@Michael Kellough, there are several items increasing in price on 11/15. Most notably some of the new 12Ah HD kits, which are currently $399. We're offering free bonus 12Ah batteries with these kits currently, which makes them a great value. But, they will be $449 after today.

2722-21HD (https://www.toolnut.com/milwaukee-2722-21hd-m18-fuel-super-sawzall-kit.html) M18 FUEL™ SUPER SAWZALL® 12AH KIT
2727-21HD (https://www.toolnut.com/milwaukee-2727-21hd-m18-fuel-16-chainsaw-kit.html) M18 FUEL™ 16" CHAINSAW 12AH KIT
2732-21HD (https://www.toolnut.com/milwaukee-2732-21hd-m18-fuel-7-1-4-circular-saw-kit.html) M18 FUEL™ 7-1/4" CIRCULAR SAW 12AH KIT

Also, some of the cordless plumbing tools.

Thanks Shane. How did you know I was less interested in plumbing tools?  [wink]

“Integrated dust port on metal blade guard with included vacuum adaptor

Have you heard any reports of anyone using the vac adapter?

Michael, I don't have any intel. I asked any of the guys in the store and will let you know if i hear anything. I did find the video below, check the 3:30 minute mark. Looks average when it comes to dust collection.

Thanks Shane. Trying to decide between this Milwaukee and the Makita XSH06PT1.

@Michael Kellough

The XSH06PT1 (https://www.toolnut.com/makita-xsh06pt1-18v-x2-lxt-36v-brushless-7-1-4-circular-saw-quad-battery-5ah-kit.html) is an 18V X2 (36V) tool which should be more powerful. It's going to be $100 cheaper tomorrow and we're giving 2 free batteries with it. In stock with free shipping. A lot of positive feedback online about this saw.

Gotta check that Makita out tomorrow!

Took me a minute to realize what you meant about being $100 less tomorrow. The Makita today is $50 less than the Milwaukee and as you mentioned before, the Milwaukee price increases $50 tomorrow.
