Milwaukee Mud Mixer / battery upgrade
« on: Aug 07, 2018, 09:51 AM »
FWIW, I've recently seen the bare tool mud mixers trading on eBay for just under $150. Also seeing opportunities for the new HiCap 12Ah batteries for under $170. Last year the mixers best price was $165 and the 9Ah batteries were @ $200 or better.

I've got a pair of 5Ah batts and was shopping for a 9. I'll probably go with a 12Ah now.

Those 12ah batteries do look very tempting. However, I have yet to use a whole 5ah battery in my drill lol. One may be in my future though.

Bahahahaha!  I have two 9 amps, but at my age it's not the batteries that I have to worry about going dead, it's the user!   :woot: :roflmao:

Well, I did it. My 12 Ah is enroute to my door for just under $160. That should do it for me, a pair of 5s and this 12. Last year I got 23 - 25 holes through 22" with the 8" K-drill. This ensures a 100 hole day if I need it (not usually but I might).

esox, if possible, I would try and cancel/return the 12ah and pick up the two 9ah & and charger for $200 at Acme that I posted in the deals thread this morning.  It's a much better value.  Six more ah worth of run time AND another charger for $40.  Your call though...
