this is all for fun/ entertainment with a little bit of armchair science-ing. I'm just a high usage home gamer/ pro-sumer, like many here.
I bought the Dewalt because I have amassed a dozen batteries and at least that many tools for that platform over several years starting with a black Friday drill deal 6 or so yrs ago.
I found a M12 ratchet & battery behind a seat at the U-pull it, which got me into that 12v platform and i absolutely love them for the lighter work.
Finding a M18 gun with charger & case, for ~ the cost of a dinner for 2 at Outback was not really a possible reality I had considered before Saturday morning. But it was enough to get me to at least wade into the M18 tool platform & check out the hype ( i'm working on a marketplace deal to halfway steal a used fuel 1/2" impact from some random 'shrewd negotiator'.
