I am in the market for my first cordless drill, to be used around the
house for decking and fencing. For about five years my brother has used
a Makita 6336D (14.4 v.), which is advertised as perhaps being sturdier
with a high performance motor that can last up to five times as long.
(He has had no problems with it.) In shopping on-line I have found
that most retail sites do not offer the 6336D, but do offer what I am
guessing is a newer model, a model 6337 MForce. The description of the
6337 MForce seems to be filled with lots of "new" features or
improvements. The MForce does sell for $30 to $50 less.
Is the MForce filling the "middle ground" between the "more industrial"
6336D and the bottom end drills, or are the MForce drills replacing the
6336D model? Does anyone have experience with the two different model
Makitas? How do they actually compare?
I have narrowed my search for a drill down to the Panasonic and Makita.
