      WELCOME TO THE CASCADECLIMBERS.COM FORUMS   02/03/18

      We have upgraded to new forum software as of late last year, and it makes everything here so much better!  It is now much easier to do pretty much anything, including write Trip Reports, sell gear, schedule climbing related events, and more. There is a new reputation system that allows for positive contributors to be recognized,  it is possible to tag content with identifiers, drag and drop in images, and it is much easier to embed multimedia content from Youtube, Vimeo, and more.  In all, the site is much more user friendly, bug free, and feature rich!   Whether you're a new user or a grizzled cascadeclimbers.com veteran, we think you'll love the new forums. Enjoy!

Anyone used a Dewalt 24 volt roto hammer for bolting? is it any good or should I just go with the bosch?

Ever climbed DeWaltido? Or on the DeWaltton Marathon Block? Nuff said? DeWalt = Black and Decker = homeowner tools.

Im pretty fond of my Bosch Annihilator, 3 amp batteries and all. Bomber and a nice upgrade from my old bulldog. Cant really go wrong with the tried and true. wave.gif

DeWalt used to be an independant company until bought out by Black and Decker. DeWalt tools are, however, very different from Black and Decker. I worked as a carpenter for a number of years and own and use a DeWalt compound miter saw, circular saw, and sander. All excellent tools. The only tool I used that was not good was the impact hammer. It fell apart the first time I used it.

 

It seems that different companies excell at making different tools. Porter Cable makes excellent routers, DeWalt makes excellent saws, Milwaulkee makes excellent reciprocating saws (Sawz-all) and Bosch makes excellent roto hammers.

I have a Hilti TE-6A 36v rotohammer, and I like it. Parts and good bits are expensive, however.

another good thing about the bosch is when you turbo charge it you only have to carry two 12V batteries instead of 3 with the 36V Hilti. Batteries are very heavy.
