and start speed of 700 instead of 900 if it feels nice in the hand that could be one very nice machine top speed is only 1850 i know some like to take theres to 2000+ but i think for most people this could be a good buy???

I didn't spot the low start speed. That could be an excellent bit of kit. Would have to feel very nice to tempt me away from the chicago/milwaukee though as they are well balanced and light.

The 1850RPM limit is a bit low. Its looks promising though, you guys get all the good stuff over there.
