    Mark Levin,

    Your comment about the PM EVS presses substantially outselling the Novas would explain why we’ve seen so many horrid reviews of the previous such PM, and none for the Nova. Based on...

    The tech on the Nova is clearly from the 80’s, in fact the 80’s keep calling and they want it back. So I wouldn’t worry too much about that, they built stuff more rugged back then. It’s the tech on...

    You want FUEL. Maybe they’ve made other brushless, but FUEL is what you want. With Milwaukee anyway.

    There are people, maybe even here on this forum, who don’t know that you could get an “unlisted number” for your “landline”. Those were the days.

    FUEL is Milwaukee’s trade name for brushless. I have both the M18 and M12 batteries in various configurations (around 20 in total.) The M18’s have more brute force power, but the M12’s have a better...

    Neonicotinoids (imidocloprid etc) are particularly bad, because the bees seem to _like_ it, it gets them high. Then they get confused, and lose themselves in a silly stupor. I think they’re banned in...
