  3. In all honesty, you'll be happy with either brand. I only own Milwaukee 18v & 12v and Makita 18v and there's nothing more I need. Milwaukee releases their tools at a faster pace (at least here in NA) so they frequently have class-leading tools in terms of specs. Obviously their reciprocating saws are their bread and butter but their circular saws are also great and when it comes to jobsite lighting, they're in a tier by themselves. They have lots of promos at Home Cheapo but I generally prefer eBay or Acme for red tools. If you only want to invest in 1 platform, I'd give the nod to Makita. You can go small with the subcompact line or go big with their X2 tools. I feel Makita's drills and impacts are the most refined and highest quality available. Milwaukee and DeWalt often have quirks with theirs, such as jaws that continue spinning in the chuck after the trigger has been released, obnoxiously loud brakes in speed 2, high-pitched squeals and difficulty feathering the trigger (the latter two were especially prevalent in the M18 Fuel Gen 2 drill/impact). Makitas can be feathered far easier than any other brand if you're doing precision work. Another thing to note is their standard charger is the most efficient/fastest of the "Big 3" brands. Ergonomically their grips and trigger placements are the best, with only Hitachi and DeWalt coming close. Lastly, there's little to no battery slop. Either way, you can't go wrong.
