Kept attacking the giant juniper bush today!

I got to some big stuff today, and ran the battery down on the demolition saw.  I broke through to the center this afternoon, and it's all hollow in there!  SOMETHING had to be living in there, as there were several holes leading in. So far, I've only seen cats walking through when I take breaks.  No Dingo Dogs, as the liberals live on the OTHER side of town.

Pretty good.  I pulled a battery off of the hedge trimmer - which had seen battle a few days ago - and used that in the demo saw.  I outlasted it, but not by much.  I'm going to feel it tomorrow.  Not just my body, but my post surgical hands.  They already hurt.

Probably not, but I sent in photographs on Friday.  It's how they do remote diagnostics now.  Remember, and you should remember this, "pain is just weakness leaving the body".  Jack La Lane, mid last century.

It’s pretty fuqing amazing how much energy is in a lithium ion battery pack. I bored a 100 pocket holes in maple on a single battery pack.

I may not get to the bush today.  Shoulders and hands are more than a bit sore, and everything is covered in fresh snow!

This was my suggestion. But he said he is enjoying the work and feels like he is making his mark on the property. I can relate to that.

yes it is like spending weeks fiddling around with shelves in a closet. shelves that can't even be adjusted or rearranged depending on changing needs.

I actually DO have a call in, because the bush is that huge, but it called to me yesterday.  Who knows when I'll get a call back?

This is the part I don't get. I'm an amateur (at best) - with a cheap Lio chainsaw and got through a tree in 20 minutes. This is like the third fuqing post about "attacking" this juniper bush.

Adjustable shelves have their advantages and disadvantages. It’s a trade off. My customer did not want them to be adjustable.

I got a battery chain saw when I bought my Ryobi tool set in 2004.  I was never impressed with it and gave it away when we moved.  Have they improved that much?

I think that must be the case (i.e. improved technology). I went with Black/Decker. Man that thing can tear shyt up - even big logs.

I even got the relatively small one and even that works like a charm

Wait. All of your (crappy) Ryobi tools are from 2004?

Yeah, you need to upgrade.

Even if you upgrade to the newest models of (crappy) Ryobi, you will be much happier. In 2004 a (crappy) brand like Ryobi would still have been using Ni-Cad. Now even a (crappy) brand like Ryobi would be Li-Ion.

I have a mix of 12V and 18V Milwaukee Li-Ion stuff. I started out with 18V because I was upgrading from 12V Ni-Cad DeWalt stuff thinking I needed the extra voltage. As part of a "deal" I also got a free 12V tool thrown in. What I have learned is that for almost every job I do the 12V Li-Ion stuff is more than satisfactory.

BTW - DeWalt is crappy brand now too. They put more time into designing ways to introduce new incompatible battery formats than trying to make good tools. The Milwaukee M12 and M18 formats have been stable for years. And the tool selection is amazing.
