My new impact driver
« on: September 26, 2015, 01:05 PM »
Seen as there is no 18v festool impact I ordered theclosest thing to it! Along with a 5ah battery. My radio is makita so works out well for me

Did you buy it off ebay or something from Japan? Was delivery a problem?

I have the standard Makita Blue version of that impact but prefer using my Festool Ti 15 impact.
  I know a lot of people don't like the Ti 15 but I do, only problem I have with the Ti 15 is remembering to keep a couple of the 14.4v batteries exclusively with the impact. All my other cordless Festools run on the 18v batteries which I always carry with me.

I'm with you .. no big hate for the Ti15. I'm half tempted to grab a C18 though (in readiness) for the arrival of the Ti18 and then I can farewell everything 15V that's Festool [wink]

Then I'm just left with the rogue 12V Duradrive .. hmmm [scratch chin]

@Kev   I hear you,   Apart from the Ti 15, everything will be 18v but I'm going to use the old 14.4 batteries to power the sys lights.

Yeh, for some reason I seem to have about 8 15V batteries. They're great for the Syslites as the onboard batteries are only good for a snoop round the garden or two!

What do they put in the water in Australia? [tongue]


The DTD148 is top kit. Good work getting it green too. I think they have black, metallic gold, and metallic teal now as well.
