Not a clue, but I've got to say that looks like a nice tool. As someone who was brought up long before battery tools became a thing I'm constantly amazed at how good, and how powerful, a battery tool can be. I have a DeWalt cordless drill/driver which has been a real workhorse for me. I recently built some decking and I reckon it must have put in about 800 screws. I hate to think what that would have been like with an ordinary screwdriver.

My first battery-operated drill was a Craftsman with an integral Ni-Cd battery. It lasted about a year. Fast-forward to today! I have a drill/impact driver, nail gun, circular saw, drain rodder, grass shear and vacuum cleaner that run off the same Li-ion battery and have been going strong for years. The batteries are interchangeable and replaceable, and of course I have several.

A little late to do anything about it now but Shimano's HTII "pretension" bolts are plastic and could have been removed with a lot less drama.

I should have pulled that bolt out when it was new in March 2014. The Middleburn crank has no such hardware to jam up the works. It is much easier to remove to service the Chris King BB I installed or it.
