brushless or not


I was looking at makita site and drill with brush is bare tool only. Combo tools are all brushless. I still don't want to spend the money but drill with brush is fairly cheap. I was wondering if brushed tool is going to disappear from the market or will be available in near future?

Ayuh,..... For the efficiency they provide, I'll never buy another brush motor tool,.....

The brush-less design has much more power, 'n the batteries last longer between charges,.....

Brushed battery power tools will be obsolete in a few years.

This drive toward excellence and efficiency is driving to the poor house.

No it is the Republicans who oppose unions and raise payroll taxes by 50% and provide tax havens for billionaires and their heirs that are driving the American workers and their families into the poor house or into homeless shelters.

Cordless tools have gotten cheaper. My DeWalt 20v bare tools have cost me $100 or less and I do not need to buy new batteries and a new charger each time I add a cordless power tool.

Re: brushless or not


Brushless is nice. There really aren't any disadvantages. That being said, the advantages to it are of varying value depending on use.

I could personally care less about the motor life claims. By the time I have to worry about motor life my stuff is usually antiquated and needs replaced anyway. If I do decide to repair it, we're talking about new brushes for a couple dollars.

Heat reduction is a benefit on some tools more than others, but heat is always your enemy when it comes to equipment.

Increased power is more the manufacturer putting more power into them than it is a fundamental result of the lack of brushes. Nevertheless, the brushless models tend to have more power .

The biggest advantage is increased run time. That needs no explanation.

It's personal preference I suppose. I think it's crazy to go out and replace a perfectly good tool for the sake of being brushless, but the fuel effect has claimed lots of victims.

Going forward I will replace my stuff with brushless as needed.

The truth is that either will serve you well for years to come
