Re: Makita Does It Again


I think they should have given an option or included a smaller one with it. A guy that works for me hated them so much he took all my saws home and cut and rewelded the hooks to be 2 1/4" wide.

Re: Makita Does It Again


For cordless electric tools it does not really matter what brand you buy. Make sure whatever you buy fits your needs such as having sufficient battery life, lightweight, powerful enough, good warranty. If you use your tools for manufacturing and assembly you can choose between pneumatic and DC electric and traceability if needed. You can receive scrapping discounts and get repairs for more expensive tools.

The gauge is in metric. I will have to learn the metric system now

But also, the US version didn't have the edge guide and the UK version does.

I have the previous generation 12" chain saw and I love that thing. So easy, light, and quiet.

In Canada my 18v came an edge guide and it not metric...

I tried ordering from some different tool companies in Canada and always came up with a "does not ship to US".

Case is for the electric, but 18v fits tight.

Re: Makita Does It Again


So I gave my rear handle Milwaukee saw to one of my guys. I thought it was clunky and not very well thought out.

It doesn't hold a candle to the rear handle Makita. That's a great saw. Very well balanced and smooth. It's back to being my goto for ripping and heavy use.


Mike.
