I have a Metabo cordless drill. It is rugged and powerful as others
have mentioned. I was disappointed with the lifespan of the batteries
though. Without a doubt both died faster than any other cordless tool
batteries I have owned. I could have replaced them but decided to
replace the drill with a Milwaukee. I've used the Milwaukee for about
sixl months and so far I can honestly say it is the best cordless
drill I've ever had.
Looked over al the portable powered tools at a local dealer a few days
ago. Salesman said all were China made except for the Metabo which are
made in Germany.
I have so much of this stuff that I will not be buying any for a few
years so will look over things then.
In the current global economy, it's really hard to generalize.
For what it's worth, Festool is also mostly made in Germany, as are some
of the Bosch tools.
Makita actually makes some tools in the USA.
the reason I asked is I have several cordless and corded drills that I
picked up a lot cheaper than I have found anywhere on the web. one of
those you owe me money so I'll take these as payment but I want them
for less. they are new in box and can be had much cheaper than
anywhere I.ve found. new old stock and some are prolly discontinued
but should still carry the three year warranty. I have 1- 12V 3- 18v
5- 15.6v and 3 corded screw guns. anyone interested contact me at
fartntouchit@hotmail dot com. they will be almost 100 bucks cheaper
than I.ve found anywhere else. I can ship anywhere in continental US.
