      Its just the bare tool, no charger, no batteries. If it doesnt end up here in the Ridgid flavor this year, I might have to work out something with you Rick, I really want a cordless grinder. But I want to be able to use my Ridgid batteries and from what I have gathered, the AEG tool batteries are identical to the Ridgid twins

            Alpha, if you are sure of what you want be a pleasure to help. As rick says though, our tools are all 240vlts 50-60hz. Just PM me and we can talk further

              I knew the corded stuff is all not compatible here, but the cordless stuff should all be standard 18v DC like the tools here. Chargers are different but only on the AC side. These are just bare tools. I am interested in that cordless SDS demo hammer as well. Wonder what shipping is from down under to MN?!

                Interesting that you mention Ridgid batteries. I've noticed that the ProPress Mega G is powered by Mikita batteries.

                  Shipping and fees can be costly. Joey shipped some yarn over to Syd and was shocked at the cost. Jana bought a nursing book here Syd needed for school there and fees and shipping was almost $100. When we buy gifts for the kids we use a retailer there who ships it to them.

                    Just for the heck of it I tried UPS with a 10 pound weight from Sydney International Airport to my home address in NJ with a declared value of $100 USD.

                    Estimated at 4 days transit time with a shipping cost of over $200 USD for the cheapest rate.

                      4 days. No wonder its 200 dollars. I've shipped Canada to Ukraine 20+ times and for 15lbs it was roughly 80$. On average it would take 2 weeks but on occasion it would take about 4 weeks for delivery. There is a formula for size and weight, rate is not based on weight alone. Perhaps find an independent shipper.

                        Yikes!!! If I had someone bring it back with them while on a trip such as Rick, what kind of duties would I be looking at for bring it back?

                          I think that $200 fee included duty. I put a value of $100 USD on the 10# package and gave it a size of 12x16x4 inches

                          It was all hypothetical just to see what it might cost to send something.

                            It's been a while since I traveled so I may be way off on these numbers but I thought you got a certain amount duty free depending on how long you were visiting? I thought the amount was pretty high as well, I beleive it's $200 for a week but $700 for two weeks.
