    Again I will propose my idea for a dual battery powered cordless mitersaw.
    Use two 18v batteries in series for 36v power or in parallel for longer run time
    and higher available amperage.

    If Ryobi can make a cordless string trimmer and a hedge trimmer with the option
    to run off AC power why can't RIDGID (preferred) or Ryobi come out with a decent
    mitersaw with the same capability?

    If Ryobi why not use the existing 40v battery used in the hedge trimmer, chain saw, and other
    garden tools for a 40v mitersaw. Then you could offer a bare tool and use the battery and charger
    from your garden tool.

This our fathers did for us."

      My thoughts exactly Bob. First time I saw the 40v platform, I instantly started to try and think of a way to incorporate that into a mitersaw

      16ga brushless finish nailer and 18ga brushless brad nailer. Finish nailer is straight at least from what I saw.

        so your saying you saw the new RIDGID 18v nailers? confused why ryobi trumps RIDGID all the time. Ryobi has the 15 gauge angled 18v nailer coming out soon

          I saw a picture of the finish nailer. No pic of the brad nailer though. I'm guessing it's a rebodied Ryobi With a new motor.

                Cordless band saw is a good idea bigscore, I like it. A small one like the Milwaukee would
                be great. This is another tool for a dual power option.

                An AC/DC band saw would be great, AC when you are working on one spot and making a
                number of cuts, then the option to switch to battery power when you have to make a couple
                cuts in place. Safer too because no cord dragging behind you or up on the ladder to get tangled
                up on something or wrapped around your leg or whatever.

                  3/8 impact wrenches have Milwaukee in those 12v and 18v, 3/8 ratchet also Milwaukee, 1/2 compact 12v drill also Milwaukee space constraints have a 3/8 ridgid but some specialty bits are 1/2, a large led light to cover large areas ryobi, a fan ryobi, stick light Milwaukee, higher torque 1/2 impact for truck wheels Milwaukee that's pretty much what everyone in my shop has so the customers are there just missing the tools for the job
