I have nothing against dewalt it's just one has to choose or those batteries add up quick. Friend of mine bought makita knock off batteries on ebay he said never again he learned his lesson. I just have the makita multi-tool which I love. Rest of my tools are Hilti's that I love but are $$$$$$$$$$$$!!! Just invested in them about 4 months ago friend of mine we trade off helping each other on bigger jobs he convinced me and after using them on his jobs I noticed the difference. I was amazed at the power cutting difference between the 3 & 5 amp makita battery wasn't expecting that just thought the battery would last longer. Hilti doesn't make a multi-tool which I find weird if you look at the amount of tools they make. Good tools make all the difference in the world instead of struggling with tools like ryobi. Ryobi does make couple tools I like as their air blowers I've had one for years works great. Their lawn mowers I've had for think around 4 years now still working great. Have ryobi weed wacker also works great. But their tools for construction haven't served me well.
