    I'll up your 30 year old Korean drummer in a mini-dress with three 13 year old Japanese schoolgirls in pigtails and a heavy metal band wearing skeleton costumes.

    We use Ozito, Ryobi and Milwaukee in our sewer pipeline work. They all last a similar time due to being used in and under water/shit. 3-4 weeks. We use grey tape over the air vents and WD-40 them after use.
    Ozito usually overheat and burn out first but $50-70 is good value.
    Ryobi shaft bearings usually fail quickest. The skins are the most cost effective.
    Milwaukee batteries have the highest premature failure rate but skins last the longest. The water shorts them out.

    Sydney dams at 90% average .. and rising. Nepean at 100% so I expect that will overflow. Still on level 1 water restrictions. Should get some more inflow from the recent rains. Last year was at 51%...

    Looking better for the coming summer.

    Things are still dry elsewhere! NSW dams...
    Split Rock dam @ 5%
    Pindari Dam 14%
    Copeton Dam @ 15%
    Carcoar Dam @ 20%
    Keepit Dam @ 20%

    I’m sitting on the banks of the Ovens atm, we haven’t had any where near the rain the south coast got but it’s enough to bump up river levels. Bit of water heading to SA, it might be a good year for a trip to a mates place at Wongulla if/when all this shit is over.
