Now that Ryobi has officially announced their new 18V dual battery miter saw, it seems that the AEG model is imminent. For the US launch, the Ridgid 18V Brushless 10-Inch Miter Saw will be renamed as it always is. AEG is simply the Australian brand of the same tools. Often, taking a look at their website […]
The new Makita cordless lawn mower is not the first of its kind, but it is the first among the major power tool brands. Milwaukee and DeWalt are the other major two competitors, but neither has made a commitment to a mower yet. Bosch has some options in Europe, but that doesn’t help us much […]
