I prob have more makita than you do so I'm not in that range of people. I have as many of each brand and the festool tools are vastly better. If you was sold on performance versus cost you would go Festool as they are the better performance tool when you look at the cost over the life of the tool. Your working on a budget which is why you use makita. Working on a budget was the reason I bought so much makita stuff. It's a great quality tool for what it costs but they ain't no festool.
"Again the festool doesn't cut any better or faster or easier then a Makita(I've used both)"
It's the same reason people buy makita over HF or Ryobi.
If you look at tools like this then why don't you buy HF tools instead of Makita. They are much more budget friendly and they also cut.
The only people I see bashing a festool are either green eyed monsters or people who have never used them.
What does it matter , how others spend their hard earned money? Your experience & justification of how you spend your money, is different than how others make those same decisions. I personally don't bash anything I haven't had a negative experience with first hand. At this point in my business, I just choose to spend my hard earned money on tools that make the most money for me. In this case, makita kept money in my pocket & for the uses I've used it so far, I don't believe a more expensive tool would have made any difference in the quality of the product I put out.
