    Was a Makita fan , had all 12v gear , needed to upgrade some items & was tossing the idea of switching to Milwaukee. Ended up switching to Milwaukee & now I wouldn’t go back to Makita.
    The primary function of the design engineer is to make things difficult for the fabricator and impossible for the serviceman.

    Been using Milwaukee fuel for several years. Really like it, my only issue has been there chucks. I had to have my hammer drill chuck replaced, and now my regular drill has gotten to where I need channel locks to work it. They started acting up real soon after purchase, and it just gets worse.

    The newer Chuck's are much better, I'd contact Milwaukee and see if they'll replace yours.

    Milwaukee for sure. Never had any issues with my cordless drills.

    Started with Makita decades ago, switched to Milwaukee when they started cheaping out. IMO nothing these days compares, although the batteries are light years ahead. Had reasonable luck with Porter Cable too.

    My Son in Law works for Bosch, He has given me many a refurbished Bosch tool and I have never had a single problem with them.

    Just switched from Makita to Dewalt.
    But i got only the Made in America ones.
    Quality is very good i have a lot of tools to choose from and they are plenty of power.
    More than Makita. Dewalt is also very ergonomic, every tool fit in my hand like a glove.
