I have 18v Makita, big bandsaw, brushless grinder, brushless sawzall, fein tool, 36v skilsaw, brushless drill, brushless impact, etc.

The two things that have bothered me is the drills are never as good as DeWalt's, and the skilsaw is left handed. Work pays for the replacement tools when one breaks. Local hardware store handles warranty claims with no fees. So I have two or more drills at any one time. Maybe when Makita gets enough bad ones back they'll make a good one.

I think I should recommend my guys as testers for the cordless tool manufacturers. Show me a tool they can't destroy in 6 months and I'll buy stock in that company.
I used to collect used tools with the thought of cannibalizing parts but gave up when I found things like switches for the same model of drill or sawsall could be incompatible depending on when and where it was manufactured.
They don't want them to last longer. They want you to buy more.
