makita 18v versus other lithium ion tools
I was at the orange store the other day and was seized with tool lust for a Makita 18v drill with the lithium ion battery.
I'm in the market for some cordless tools, and as you know, buying one sort of commits you to the whole line, whether Bosch or DeWalt or Makita or whatever. Sounds like the Lithium Ion technology is a bit better (power/weight ratio) than NiMh and NiCad technologies.
This seemed like a really nice drill with lotsa torque and good balance.
Anybody have any experience with the other Makita tools in this line?
If you were starting out buying a set of cordless tools today, what would you go with? I'll be using them over the next several months as we redo a kitchen.
I don't mind paying $$$ if it's a good value for the dollar spent, but I don't want to buy a rolls royce when a honda would do.
