Damn. Another one to put on my to buy list.

Seriously though, I am very happy with makita cordless tools. I'll wait for some reviews but looks like I will be getting one of these.

I can talk about my views all day long and that does not in anyway mean you views are wrong. The trouble begins when one person cannot allow the other person's opinion be heard more or be published without rebuttal.

I know as soon as you saw that Bosch was compared to vanilla the OCD kicked in....

You just can't control it.

But if it makes you feel any better, I got rid of my Makita cordless impact for another brand.

Re: Its Heeeeeere!! Makita MultiTool


I'm curious to know what you swapped it out for. I ain't used a better impact on the market. There's a good reason it always comes tops in reviews.

You all get an "F". Not only did I discuss this in full before making the purchase, I have also talked about the pros and cons of what I got and compared it to the Makita.

FAIL!

I think Angus went Metabo...




I don't get all the hype about a 'multi-tool'..

I use mine like 3-4 times a year, usually one or two little cuts..

I am not sure where in the heck this is coming from.

Look back at your posts, you said one of the Bosch tools you owned sucked a$$. Did I respond to that at all? Nope!

It was a serious post, with a serious opinion, and I left it at that. As you said you are entitled to your opinion and I can't tell you whether or not that tool sucked a$$.

But when you joked about Bosch being like vanilla, I commented thinking you would take it for what it was, a little friendly banter.

If I did anything to offend thee, please forgiveth me at your earliest convenience.

And I could have told everyone it was Metabo. Hell you posted pics of the thing (stock photo) if I remember.

Sorry, but Metabo cordless is a world behind the others. They have lithium, but they are built to fit a brick layers hands.

I have XL hands. It is a beast but that's one of the reasons I bought it. It also has stellar longevity when abusing it; again, another reason I bought it. For finesse jobs, I have smaller impacts...none of which are Bosch
