I believe that Milwaukee is currently working on their next generation 8775 leap, 8776 but it 8767 s unclear which direction they 8767 re going in.
Let 8767 s look at those cons. Less work per charge? True, if you consider the FlexVolt 6Ah pack and not the 9Ah pack that is coming soon.
The brake isn 8767 t as quick as the Makita, and I believe I was told the cost would be around $855. Not sure whether that was kit or bare tool.
DeWalt is the professional division of the American power tool manufacturer Black and Decker. This world famous company also includes the German power tool brand Elu. To confuse thing even more Black and Decker has in turn recently been acquired by another American tool giant Stanley Tools.
Premium XR Lithium Ion pack provides up to 65% more capacity than standard 75V MAX battery pack (DCB755). 8-LED fuel gauge system allows immediate feedback on state of charge. No memory and virtually no self-discharge for maximum productivity and less downtime. Lightweight at lbs and compatible with entire line of 75V MAX tools.
But no, on paper specs are thrown out the window in the context of a battery pack. Okay, maybe they 8767 re not thrown out the window, but there 8767 s much more to a battery pack design than on-paper current specs.
There are too many questions for me. More so along the lines of flexvolt or high capacity m68 battery life and how long will the batts stay maintenance free compared to the life of a corded model. I dont mean to ramble. I am simply curious.
The Dewalt engineer I spoke through wasn 8767 t talking about Milwaukee specifically, but they said that if you tried to design 68V-class tools that compared with FlexVolt tools, the current and operating temperatures would be so high that contacts and connections might start melting.
Ah yes, DeWalt discovered how to hook up battery cells in series instead of in parallel. Where would the world be without you yanks…
The FlexVolt battery pack will be slightly larger, because it will consist of slightly larger and more capable battery cells.
