Great review, I can’t wait for some of these tools to hit the market.
I was wondering about your comments on the new battery technology Milwaukee is choosing to go with. You said they decided to go with a 21-700 battery instead of a 20-650 or 20-700 and stated the 21 indicated the diameter of the battery. That’s a huge battery, so I was thinking maybe it’s 21 mm in circumference?
