    They are still calling him a suspect. Nothing being talked about as to an accident or malicious. However, that said, somewhere on Twitbookface, it was said the driver has multiple warrants and released within days of this on $1,000 bond for something - consider the source for that - I don't know for sure.

                    And now for something completely different.
                    So I am at my local Acme tool counter purchasing a couple Dewalt cordless impacts for my guys when the girl behind the counter starts busting my balls for buying yellow instead of Red. I am thinking who are you, and why do you care, you sell both here. Turns out she is actually the local Milwaukee Rep. she was just wearing a similar shirt to Acme guys. Long story short I challenged her to come into our plant and convince my guys why we want Red instead of Yellow. I got a dozen or so Wily E Coyote mechanics that would love to entertain her! I explained if she wanted a harsh environment for testing you can’t do any worse than a salt plant. Tools are consumable items here. She shows up today at one with her little bouncy self. This will be a hoot.

                      Report at 5. Besides if you already have the big D yellow tools you have a dozen or so chargers and scads of batteries. No reason to reinvent the wheel. I would put Yellow up against Red any day.

                          I burn yellow as that was what was available. I burned up lots of makitas to know i wanted something different. And all my yellow batteries still work. Good enough for me.
                          My buddies all had the older red stuff, and in very short order they needed new batteries. Times have changed, batteries have improved. I sticking with what works.

                            So a little background, we operate a salt plant complete with wet environment. It is very harsh on anything metal. To the point that pvc is actually more resilient than stainless. That kind of corrosive. Over the years we have tried several brands of battery operated tools. Long and short we ended up with Yellow due to cost and life of tool. Battery operated tools are literally a throw away item for us. We saw no advantage in life of tool vs cost inputs. The yellow batteries as several have mentioned just seemed to hold up better. I got a dozen or so guys that can tear up a pry bar in a sandbox. And frankly neither brand has a warranty worth discussing. I give all my guys a fifty dollar a month tool allowance as I well remember the havoc this place wrecked upon my box. I took my box home several years back and am thankful. Let the pups do the work. This afternoon will be fun, she has already reached out to me to confirm and I had to explain food plant requirements to her. No jewelry! Hairnet etc. just think TMM if you had a truck assistant like that you could have retired way sooner, hah!

                              Love my Milwaukee's vs the DeWalts at work. Have said before - one exception -the newest yellow 12" impact is awesome. I don't have one of those in red yet to compare. The last couple tools they got are an angle grinder and another hammer drill. Both are noisy and just seam 'Harbor Freight-ish' to me.

                                Sorry. That’s honestly not intentional. I multitask between screens like crazy so sometimes there is a delay as I think how to word things

                                  Probably 25 years ago I switched from Makita to DeWalt in the shops. Dewalt made the best cordless tools then. I think Milwaukee corded tools have always been as good or better than B&D/Dewalt. Not sure when Milwaukee even got in the Cordless market. Now Milwaukee has cordless everything. And I really think they have outdone Dewalt on most of them. I gotmy first M18's over 10 years ago and have been hooked since. I don't see much difference in battery life between red and yellow (with Li anyway). That said, If you really want 'disposable' you might do more bang for the buck with Ryobi. Cheaper than the other 2 and decent power.

                                  I see dewalt is about to unleash 3/8 and 1/2 cordless ratchets. 20 volt. Will be a game changer for me. I dont like dragging out my air ratchet.
