Dewalt Brushless


Is buying Brushless really worth the money when replacing brushes are so easy and inexpensive? Just curious what everyone else thoughts were?

For a DIY/HO, quality/durability of equipment doesn't really matter, so I'd not worry about it.

Re: Dewalt Brushless


even though this is a valid question, it's not the right forum for DYI.

Brushless tools are well worth the money. Many contractors can easily justify the additional money because time is money and brushless saves time and makes us money.

Be careful when remolding: you don't want to get any mold anywhere other than where it previously was.
