I’ve had the honor to join the Mickelson Plumbing & Heating crew for the week.
We removed an old Peerless sectional boiler (1.6M Btu) and installed 3 @viessmann_us Vitocrossal 200 CI2 399K Btu boilers for a 47 unit retirement community condo building that’s been without heat since May.
Working with @mick_plumb’s crew, @plumb_bob_rob & @miles.woodford (and Andy of course) was so much fun for me. These guys are the best in Missoula for sure, first class and so talented.
We had a video crew on site for the week, thanks to the generous sponsorships from @viegallc, @viessmann_us & @ridgidtools

From this week's Milwaukee Tool Pipeline influencer event, we learned that during the company is launching a new battery package. The M18 REDLITHIUM FORGE XC6.0 Battery Pack delivers HIGH OUTPUT 12.0 power in a smaller size, 15-minute supercharge up to 80%, and the longest life vs REDLITHIUM batteries. REDLITHIUM FORGE are Milwaukee’s most powerful, fastest charging, and longest-life batteries.
The REDLITHUM FORGE XC6.0 delivers the same power as the M18 REDLITHIUM HIGH OUTPUT HD12.0 in a smaller size and lighter weight design. The optimized combination of size, weight, and increased power provides the best solution for power-demanding overhead work and tight work areas.
The REDLITHIUM FORGE XC6.0 is the fastest charging battery pack within its class on M18, charging in just 15 minutes to 80% with the new M18 Dual Bay Simultaneous Super Charger. This lithium-ion battery has the longest life, the most recharges, and the best performance over the life of the battery.
This solution is designed with resistant housing for increased protection against exposure to common oils, greases, and solvents. Built-in REDLINK Intelligence protects the battery from overloads, preventing you from damaging your cordless power tools in heavy-duty situations. The REDLITHIUM FORGE XC6.0 battery is fully compatible with 250+ M18 solutions.
