HK85
« on: August 02, 2016, 03:53 AM »
It's big.

It's heavy.

I haven't plugged it in yet!

I won't have an opportunity to play with this for a little while but I just had share that this may be in the same family as the HK55, but it's the godzilla relation.

I need to find an appropriate challenge for it!

How about a bunch of end-grain drink coasters from a 4x4!
 
Good luck.  We here in the States are eagerly awaiting the 55, which may presage the introduction of the 85 further down the road.

At 2300 watts I doubt we'll ever get a version that runs on 120 volts.
That's over 19 amps for the saw alone. I hate dust...

Does not seem to be a problem with 2200W router.

@dalep can't see me ever convincing myself I need the 132, but it'd be a heck of a talking point !

In the "crazy big" hand tool category I'd probably be more inclined towards a beam planer first [big grin]

Nice range of blades too for a good spectrum of applications !!
