    I stopped by WoodCraft today and picked up a new Makita battery for the dead one I had.

    Close enough. Better than some. lol

    Not had any trouble with Makita battery’s. Now DeWalt that’s a different story.

    I have 12 3ah batteries and 8 1.5 and my 2 new 4ah. I have only had 1 3.0 go bad and that was because some foolish person tried to charge it when it was -30.Most of my bad luck has been with the 1.5 batteries, but I only use them in the radio anyways.

    thats no good. I’ll be slowly changing over to bosch from my points here and then once i have some tools and batteries ill buy some of their bare tools. I’m liking them over makita lately so makita will become my back up and helpers tools.

    Why is that? Do they last longer or just feel stronger?

    The only issue that I have with Bosch at this time is that they are way behind in the variety of cordless tools. Until this is fixed, I’ll stay with Makita.

    Variety is also my main holdback, Makita has always been a leader in that but Milwaukee I think have caught up and DeWalt have made a good effort. I went DeWalt for 18v and wish I hadn’t but I love my 20v vac, it’s holding me to entire line still right now.

    Does Milwaukee or DeWalt have a battery assisted Bike in their lineup? I don’t think so.

    Bahahahaha. At redwood.

    Yup, you win.

    I really like my makita as well. I picked up a pair of the little 18v bats and really like the weight savings. I think they are going to be nice on the brushless impact.

    Hi everyone, I mostly have Dewalt cordless drivers in my woodshop but, I also have one Makita 18volt lithium impact driver that I use constantly with no complaints. It is both lightweight and powerful and balanced quite well. I too like many of you use my tools until they just don’t work any more and then buy new. I usually replace the batteries when they will not hold a charge any longer, I will admit that the batteries are not cheap and at times I consider just buying a new drill kit because you get two batteries, the charger, and the drill gun. It is however, a plus when manufacturers make the batteries compatible between new models and old.

    I really like the makita lineup for options but the Bosch drills and impact that I have, I am really impressed with.

    I wish there were adapters for batteries so you could cross over tools. I have a couple of older dewalts that the batteries went bad but the tools are still good. I have replaced the drill and recip saw buth the handheld Vac is something i have not found comparable in the other lines. I know they have vacs but they don’t seem to compare to the Dewalt DC 515 hand vac.
