  1. Is the voltage a good indicator of battery life? I tested one fully charged 3Ah battery and it showed 19.5V. Another fully charged 5Ah battery showed 19.9V. I don't have a new one to test but I think the "normal" voltage should stay at 4.2 * 5 = 21V. Right?

    How I 'Sharpen' my Metal cutting blades

    Sharpening experiment for the blade on my Makita Metal cutting circ saw... and it worked!
  3. New to forum, seeking answer to problem with Makita X2 LXT 10" cordless compound miter saw. Have been working with tool for almost a year, have put it through its paces and cut all kinds of bevels with it. Today it got stuck at 22.5 degress (right side) and I can't get it to budge. I suspect the lock release button is somehow broken or jammed. I took off the back plastic housing hoping to get at it, but it turns out I'd have to do more disassembly to access it. Has anyone had this problem? I've been deep Team Blue for ten years but this is causing me to reconsider my loyalties. Brought my job to a screeching halt today. I'm at a remote off-grid site and can manage with workarounds but I'd rather fix the problem. Any help would be greatly appreciated!
  4. Hi everybody, I ve a Makita ELM 3800 which suddenly stopped and refuses to start up. I 've checked the interior and there isn't any capacitor just the coil. What should i check ? Thanks

    Belt sander not enough power

    I bought a used Makita belt sander because I needed to do heavy sanding on a large wood table. Model 9911, 650 W. It seems to take much more material than the random orbital sander, but still it doesn't feel like it has enough power on lower speeds. If select lower speeds and push a bit harder on the sander, the motor sounds like it is struggling and eventually stops. Is this normal for 650W belt sanders, or do I need to repair it?
  6. its an old Makita 7.2v weed-eater thing.32" long,I haven't had any luck finding it on the internet. I accually found it in the trash, along with a 7.2v drill, charger and two good batteries!! So if any one knows any thing about this, or what it's worth, please let me know!

    Makita DF030D problems

    I have the DF030D, and I really like it....but, I seem to keep stripping something (the clutch?).Everything was going fine, and suddenly the drill had no torque, and just kept ratcheting under resistance. Is this a known problem with this model? Did I do something wrong to cause it to breakdown? any help would be appreciated. Thks
  8. Hello, I am thinking about investing in a new OPE battery platform. After having spent countless hours reading reviews, watching videos and comparing stuff, I came to the conclusion that the EGO product line would be a solid choice. If I were living in the US, I'd probably be on my way to the local DIY store to purchase the complete tool range. However, here in western Europe, EGO products are a bit harder to come by, they are a recent addition to the market and, more importantly, they are priced surprisingly high in comparison to the US. Put simply, we need to pay a lot more for less. As an example, the typical 190-200$ EGO ST-1500 trimmer would cost you about 240 EUR (~280 USD) and that's only for the bare tool without the kitted 2.5AH battery and charger. The LM2102E-SP mower with 7.5AH battery is about 950-1000 EUR, not doing the math but we understand it's a lot more than 600$, my dad paid this much for a Honda HRX mower. I have compared prices from various stores in Switzerland, France, and Germany, I checked SP-mowers, trimmers and blowers, EGO tools price tag seems to be 180% or 200% higher in Europe, except for the batteries which cost more or less the same. Granted, it's not always fair to compare prices across countries based on the currency exchange rate, but it may be legitimate to ask if EGO products can still be considered great value for money with their cost being above (or at least on par with) well-established brands such as Husqvarna, Stihl or even Makita? There is no easy answer I guess, what's your opinion on this? PS: I am not a native english speaker so please forgive eventual typos or weird grammar.
  9. Hi I am going to order Makita DHS680Z. I would like to have a guide rail as well, I am going to use it for different purposes. I was wondering if Makita SP6000K1 is compatible with DHS680Z? Thanks

    DC adapter for Makita battery

    Makita has an interesting battery adapter with a DC plug output. Model number is PE00000028 and it appears to be used by the Makita heated jacket. I was thinking I could use it to power some small electronics, like a soldering iron that accepts a 5.5 mm DC plug and up to 24V. But I can't find anywhere the specs for it. Like what's the output voltage through that plug, and max amp draw, and maybe the type of plug. Does anyone here have the heated jacket with this adapter? Maybe they are printed on it on the other side? Another idea I had is to get this cheap USB adapter: https://www.ebay.com/itm/2A-Blue-Battery-Dual-USB-Charger-Adapter-Tools-for-Makita-BL1830-1430-Adapter/282546633419 Then extract it contents and attach to it my own wires and plug. What do you think?

    Makita DC18SE car charger

    Why is it so expensive?? At least in Europe. The "normal" 240V AC rapid charger is like 40 euro, but the 12V car charger is over 100 euro! And why is it so big? Charging 3.7V batteries from 12V input shouldn't require complicated electronics. And what's up with the "Don't accelerate" sign? All the electronics that I run on the cigarette lighter work fine when i accelerate, but the Makita charger doesn't?!

    Ebay TD171 impact

    Does anybody know if the Makita "TD170" impact drivers that are floating around on ebay are real and the same as DTD170 ? Also, there's a newer TD171 model, sold the same way... https://www.ebay.co.uk/itm/Makita-TD171DZB-Impact-Driver-18V-2018-Latest-Model-ONLY-BODY-Black-Free-Ship/162921330587 Are they real, genuine, or different from the "official" models in any way? I see they are sold in many weird color options, like red, black, pink, green...... https://www.ebay.com/itm/Makita-TD170DZ-impact-driver-pink-TD170DZP-18V-body-only-made-in-japan-New/222601254746
  13. I’m a big fan of team teal and recently came across this hat online. Anyone happen to have one they would sell? https://www.etsy.com/listing/564812209/vintage-90s-makita-power-tools-black?show_sold_out_detail=1

    Makita Wireless Auto Start

    A while back we showed you guys the new Makita wireless technology. So what is Makita Wireless Technology? The Makita wireless system uses Bluetooth and talks or communicates between the tool and the dust extractor. When you power up your tool, it will automatically turn on the dust extraction. You can check out more about it on Makita Website. I think this is a pretty cool technology. Not sure how hard it is to turn on your dust extractor before you turn on your tool, but I know there are plenty enough times this will be useful. I like how it takes one more item out of the equation and i don't have to even think about turning on/off the vac. So what do you guys think? Something you think is cool or not?
  16. Hey everyone, so here it is. What benefits would you like to have when you buy your tools? Be it power tools, hand tools, accessories, etc. So far all I can think of is extended full coverage warranty for free by whomever you buy the tool from for power tools, and lifetime warranty for hand tools. What else could you possibly want? Thoughts anyone?
  17. Considering that the cells in these batteries allow 20A discharge each, is it safe to use them to jump start a car when needed? I saw a video on youtube where a guy that said he jump-started a truck with a Makita battery! I was thinking to make one out of a Makita USB adapter case. Basically drill 2 holes in it and attach 2 clips to the connectors.

    Makita battery info

    Does anyone know what kind of cells do Makita batteries use? I noticed the 4ah battery has the text 5INR19/65-2 text printed on it and the 5ah has 5INR19/66-2. What does that mean? And some say "Made in vietnam", others "Cell made in Singapore. Pack processed in China". What does pack processing mean? Is China bad? And can we find out how many cycles did a battery complete, like on milwaukee?

    Makita die grinder for an idiot.

    OK, so I was about to buy a Dremel 4300 with all the accessories line ups, and adapters, all Dremel branded stuff out of the Home Depot, but when I held that tiny 6" ish tool on my hand (demo unit), I really felt like an a-hole. It felt weak, and flaccid. I wish to buy a Makita cordless die grinder with a little more balls, and find a way to use some sort of adapter to use it with the tiny Dremel accesories, and also find a way to regulate the speed of the die grinder itself. Is this even possible? The Dremel doesn't look like it's gonna last, and I plan to re-mod my old Makita radio, and add more USB ports, tweeters, amps, and a higher range Bluetooth adapter using a die grinder to take care of all the molding around the plastic housing to mod it. Also, excuse my mannerism, as English is not my first language, and I still need to get used to all of these nomenclatures (Bolivian-American, please).

    DHP 482...

    I bought a 10.8v Makita Driver last week and while its been great (& compact) for light work... It has since proven inadequate. I'm going to mount a bike rack to a concrete column & some tensile cables to hang curtains (don't judge me...) into concrete & the 10.8v is not up to the job. The sales guy informs me that a 12v with hammer action in the same size will be in tomorrow, but TBH, I'm better off with an 18v. Most of my needs are around assembling furniture and mounting stuff to walls, but I need one drill that can do everything... What's the consensus on the Makita DHP482? It's not brushless & I believe it only comes with one battery (3ah), but I'm an occasional user, so not putting it under much pressure. Don't focus on the price... The market is limited where I live, so we don't have much options. Also, I have to buy from Ace, because I need to return the last drill. It does come with a decent set of bits... I suppose the other option is DeWalt. https://www.aceuae.com/en/ace-uae/makita-dhp482-hammer-drill-driver--75-drill-bits-969480#pdp_box_img_1[pp_gal]/0/
  22. Does anyone know if Makita lithium ion 18V batteries are balanced by the Makita charger?

    8mm collet for 110 volt router?

    Hello, I am trying to find out if my Makita RT0701c router (110volt) will be able to fit an 8mm collet. I know that the 220v version of the same machine will fit a 6mm and an 8mm, but I am not sure if the 110v version is built to different specifications. Thanks for any help you are able to offer!
  24. This monster comparison is out biggest yet! 7 brands. Mike and I have put in 75 hours all up ... :/
  25. Just wanted to get some opinions on which way to go between the 12v brushless Fuel impact/hammer drill combo kit by Milwaukee and Makita's 18v brushless sub-compact drill/impact combo. Milwaukee has a sale at my Home Depot where the 12v Fuel is $169, while Makita's sub-compact kit comes with a free third battery for $229. I already have Milwaukee's surge/hammer drill 18v combo and a Fuel circ. saw, as well as Hitachi's Triple Hammer, so I'm not looking to expand much (if at all) in either the Milwaukee 12v or the Makita 18v (knock on wood). They both feel great ergonomically, and appear to have similar specs. I know Milwaukee's 12v Fuel has been out for 3-4 years, but they told me they don't have any plans to come out with newer versions of their Fuel fasteners. Both of these deals are limited time, so I'd greatly appreciate honest opinions. Thank you!
