What is the difference between the blue/green color and the white on the Makita. Looking at some battery drills and the big box store has a set of the whites for around $225. It is a 18v lithium
Seems to be a pretty deal if you compare what it cost to bye the two tools impact driver and 1/2" drill/driver separately.
The blue tools have the 3.0 amp hr batt's and four pole "forever motors". The white tools have 1.5 amp hr batteries and plain old 2 pole "Serviceable" motors....
I cant speak for the "brushless" four pole makita drill or driver but I've used a 10.8V white and black set before, and they where solid tools that would take a drop from a 6' ladder and still run 3" screws till the cows came home............Good stuff
