Re: Cordless Combo Kit ... Your Favorite And Why


[QUOTE=cedarboarder;7602239]I like having all three big brands. Milwaukee, Makita and dewalt.
let's face it Makita line up is a bit empty compared to dewalt, Milwaukee. Mostly for smaller items like job site lights, radios, still no table saw,,.
Every company has good and bad products. Then some tools double or triple in price when comparing. Makita 18v planner is a good example. can get for $150 with spare set of blades. Milwaukee and dewalt $300. (love my Makita planner)
Milwaukee has the best warrenty for sure 5 years... Dewalt second. Then Makita last.

There 2/ yr is More anything goes wrong if it sneezes walk in and walk with new. Warranty and service is exceptional. There pricing has dropped in the last 12-18/ months. Example: 22v Impact gun only is $119. I know I just added a 5th. There cordless line has gotten really competitive 7.25" , 6.5" cordless saws SDS, jigsaw ECT. I would love a multi. They also just came out new redesigned batteries. No more 5.0 amp. They replaced them with high out put/ higher run time 4.0 that are apparently equivalent to 5.0. and Lil less weight. They also added 8.0 which is similar weight of 5.0 but run time of 12.0... I don't know the science of cells and don't care. I just know there chitt works in rain., shine ( excessive heat) excessive cold with no huss / no fuss. Dewalt on the other hand has moved to interior and shop work where it's safe.

Open an accountant even if it's a cash account. Prices drop a Lil and there's perks here and there. They also have a 5 for $1000.00 deal it's been around for a CPL yrs. Buy any 5 cordless combo and pay pay no more then $1000.
There vacs are great. I only have the cordless 75 sfm.. amazing suck. Impressive..

I think it's The World of Concrete Show or called something like that.

Makita usually has a big presence there and announces new tools at it.

Fingers crossed.

Dunno about the Milwaukee, but it ain't Dewalt. As far as I know, they have only one, and it's a small blade, 60v, battery only (no adaptor for AC). Compare with their chopsaws: full size blades, 120v with 2 batteries, AC adapter.

Honestly, I don't know what's taking them so long to get this right.

Re: Cordless Combo Kit ... Your Favorite And Why


I'm have not used the dewalt flex table saw. I have the Milwaukee table saw but have not had much of a chance to use it other than some trim work.
What Milwaukee nailed on this tool was how well it packs up and stores the fence. It has a exoskeleton frame built around it that makes easy to stack or put stuff on top of it. can store on any side it seems.

Glad they kept it simple with a single model with one key.

Yeah, I dont understand that either.

Very few people need to plug in for chop sawing. I can go all day with one battery. If I was really framing one 9 ah or 1 12 ah battery would still get me through the day.

When I am really using a table saw, it is for a lot if rips in all kinds of materials. Plugging it in would seem like a no brainer.

Why do we need a bigger than an 8Ĺ" blade on a table saw? This is a trim saw right.
