I have a Makita 9.6 and a DeWalt 14.4. The one thing I'm sure about
with cordless drills is that one is too few! <G>
I usually use the Makita as a power screwdriver and the DeWalt as an
actual drill. For instance, I find it very handy to have one unit set
up with a screwdriver bit and the other set up with a taper drill /
I like both, the Makita was only about $75 at Coastal Tool, including
2 batteries and a charger. The DeWalt was about $150 with 2 batteries
and a quick charger.
Overall, I think I prefer the DeWalt's ergonomics, chuck, and clutch,
if I could only have one of them.
