The kids were complaining about the steep climb down to the water at a campsite we just bought this year.
Dad showed up with a bunch of 18v Makita tools. I hadn't been out there much yet, so didn't know what to expect. With no measurements or any real knowledge of the lay-of-the-land, everything had to be built on site without electricity.
Using the circular saw, the drill and impact driver, and the big rotary hammer drill (with rock-drilling bit), we built and anchored a 16' run of stairs from the top of the rock to the shore. All 18v tools.
Fifteen years ago, battery-powered tools were still a joke, IMO.
Now it is almost unbelievable how long the charge lasts and how quickly they re-charge.
With two batteries we did the whole job and recharged one battery ONE TIME with the generator.
I think Makita offers over 130 tools that are powered by their 18v batteries. I'll take one of each please! All the way from the flashlight, up to the "motor-assisted" bicycle!!
