PostPosted: Wed Sep 13, 2017 10:06 pm 
Makita have come up with an answer to the Festool TSC55R - which is you are a Makita cordless user like I am is very interesting -

The motor is variable speed and brushless, but two batteries are required (it won't run on one alone)

 Post subject: Makita 18v Li-Ion combi drills and drill drivers (10/2016)
PostPosted: Sun Nov 06, 2016 11:00 am 
I'm sure that I'm not alone in being confused by Makita's model numbers, so this is an attempt to help anyone interested in buying a Makita 18 volt combi drill or drill/driver. This only covers the Li-Ion range currently on the market and available (6 Nov 2016), not the now defunct NiCd and NiMH products. Earlier models which are no longer available such as the DHP451, DHP452, etc are also omitted. The categories are all ...

PostPosted: Sun Feb 21, 2016 7:11 pm 
Searched for any threads regarding this piece of kit and couldn't find any so....

Have had the Makita HR2470WX 3kg SDS Plus Hammer Drill 110V. Brilliant piece of kit, shame about the need for transformers and cables, makes you ache carrying it all.

Have had the Makita DHR202Z 3.2kg SDS Plus Drill 18V cordless. As good as the above but without the need for cables. Yes if used constantly will eat through your battery’s but ...

 Post subject: Makita DMR104 RADIO
PostPosted: Wed Oct 14, 2015 6:19 pm 
Hi, anyone got this radio.

I've just picked one up today and I'm not sure whether it has a fault or not. When scrolling through the dab stations it seems to time out after a few seconds and just change the volume rather than scroll the stations.

Just wondering if anyone else's does this before I take it back
