Just converted my old 7.2V Makita to a 12V jobby.

Been done before I know, but can anyone tell me how long it'll last ?
Got bleep loads of grunt but I don't expect it to last too long.

Of course if you only use it in the bush when you need it I suppose it should last for a while.

Cheers

I converted a 7volt ryobi to 12volts 10 years ago when the battery died.
I use in on the 4WD when I'm too lazy to run out the air line for the airdrill.......still powering away with lots of torque.

Rosco, providing their aren't any electronic components in the way, ie goes straight through the trigger to the motor it sholdn't really matter too much, the motor will just overheat and die if you give it too harder time. If your only using it for short bursts with not too much load it should last for ever.
