Re: Makita Does It Again


I've started going to 12v Milwaukie for most things. Light and enough power for day to day work.

Drilled 6 holes on porcelain tile the other day and didn't even go down a bar I don't think.

Cut nearly 70 feet of triple wall poly carbonate with the small 12 volt saw and standard round battery. Missed it by 2 feet.

Cut a 4x10 with it as well. No problem. Depth of cut is the only bummer. 1 5/8 inches.

The 12 volt stuff is amazing.

Re: Makita Does It Again


any word on how much this Makita drill will cost? always surprises me when makita has tool cheaper than the compition. but doubt this will be one of them.

I will consider buying this tool if the price is right.

I don't understand how you guys can objectify these poor women who were obviously forced into appearing in these ads for no financial compensation whatsoever.

That said, gonna have to give the W to team red on this one.

They wait for everybody else to make them, and then they improve the weak points.

Then they lose out on patents. Following isn't a good business strategy.

Nothing worse than rushing a tool to market and then have issues with it.
That can really drum up negative views on the company.

Re: Makita Does It Again


That makita chain saw is just what I need....In the winter sometimes fire wood runs low I'm out an there's a nice piece by the side of the road but it's 50' long I can hack it into 8 or 10 foot links and I got a few nights wood.

Only a 14" bar though

So the better strategy is to copy others, because you may get it wrong? I don't think good companies follow that business plan.

Re: Makita Does It Again


These cordless companys want your money. Damn I wished I'd invested in union carbide or whoever is mining all this freakin lithium. It's the batteries that cost the money...the tool for what it is....is cheap. Once you have 10 or more batteries in one platform you'll always buy their tools and of course you'll pick up and extra battery or two at $100+ a pop.

I see Milwaukee (Techtronic) has come out with a 12.0 amp hour battery almost $200 i think.

It is the batteries my fellow nimrods without them the tool is useless

I'm not in the camp that thinks sticking to one platform makes sense. My boys will break out an extra charger if there's another tool that's better for the task at hand.

Re: Makita Does It Again


So heres the comparison keeping in mind ........... W = [A] [ V]

Milwaukee 12 amp x 18 volts=216 watts of power

Milwakee 9 amp x 18 volts=162 watts of power

Makita 2 6amp =12 amp x 36 volts=432 watts of power

Clearly the makita has more ass....if the ratings are correct

You're confusing amp-hours with amps. Your numbers are watt-hours (capacity) not watts (power). And with Makita 6 amp does not = 12 amp. The batteries are connected in series so it's still 6 amp but double the voltage. So Makita is 216 watt-hours like Milwaukee 12.0

To get power you have to know the cells used and the configuration. And it gets more complicated. Voltage drops at max load.

Milwaukee 12AH is 5S3P, with cells that can produce 40 amps for a reasonable amount of time for a tool. So that's 16V (factoring voltage drop) at 120 amps = 1920 watts.

Milwaukee 9AH is also 5S3P with cells that can only produce 20 amps, so it's half the power at 960 watts.

Makita has similar cells, but 20 instead of 15, configured 10S2P, so we're at 32V and 40 amps for 1280 watts.

All of these can burst significantly higher outputs, and can't maintain the above numbers for continuous use.
