Hit power: 1.4 ft/lbs on the cordless, 2 ft/lbs on the corded. You choose.

And what's "mm" as a trade?

Re: Makita Of Bosch


I was hoping for a more philosophical question based on the title of the thread.

I don't personally thing Makita of Bosch is better but I own a lot of Makita and no Bosch so I suppose I think Makita is better.

Re: Makita Of Bosch


I'm not a fan of only owning one platform, if tools from another are better. It's always about the better tool to me. And each company has their tool or tools that are better than the other company. I'm running Milwaukee, Metabo, Mafell, Dewalt, Fein, and Makita

Makita does the free grinder also. I have the Makita pictured with a cord but picked up a 1-1/8 pistol style Milwaukee and much prefer it

Re: Makita Of Bosch


Comparing a corded and cordless isn't usually the way you want to look at things.

The cordless could have much more freedom of movement and be used in places with no power. The cordless is going to run out of juice and you'll need to replace or recharge batteries if all you have is the one.

If you have other Makita battery tools staying within the family is usually the best way to go as you can share batteries.

On the other hand having a corded tool usually gives you more power, and unlimited use time, no changing batteries, no charger, not temporary down time while swapping out the battery.

Both are name brand tools. I have both brands and like the choices my Makitas are cordless and my Bosch are corded.

If you are using this for short term jobs get the Makita. If you are using this to drill all day long constantly, get the Bosch corded.

Re: Makita Of Bosch


I use a cordless impact and drill very hard all day long and can get by with one 5.0 battery. You spend much more time dicking with an extension cord, rolling it out and rolling it up than it takes to swap out a battery.

I only have a couple tools left that are corded.
Cut the cord and been happy.

Re: Makita Of Bosch


I saw the title of this thread and thought it was some kind of joint project between Makita and Bosch, like the new ToyotaBmw Supra.
