    Sorry to dig up an old thread but I am thinking about getting the Makita BTW450. Think it is you can't modulate the rpm. Who's used one is it an issue?

    brother in law picked one up not long ago, haven't used it yet to compare to the dewalt I have but never had a problem with not being able to modulate the rpm as I am only ever using it for wheel nuts and make SFA different when your just taking the wheel nuts off or doing them up FT (fucking tight)

    Thread dig again.
    Have a 3850 snap on.
    Am Looking at the Makita, Snap on and Bosch.
    Snap on Makita are similar price, but Bosch is $100 less. It also has 400 NM of torque.
    Both Mak and Bosch seem a little plastic compared to Snap On.

    Any users of the Bosch. Have some Bosch products and are good. Have Hitachi and works well. Only Makita tool I had shat itself and I bought a dewalt.
    Also have Milwaulkee and they are very good.

    Suggestions

    And of course I need it this weekend and charged up.

    How much are they, the makita is 160 US plus 2 batteries for $150, you wont find a deal like that in AUS.

    My friend just bought another 2 of these things, they are animals for the cost.

    My friend has some 800 dollar ingersal one, while it looks more expensive i think the makita will be on par if not stronger.

    Can not comment about bosch, friend has snap on i should ask him what it is like.

    I need the cheapest POS that can take off 64 wheel nuts and then replace them. Final tightening done with a torque wrench to around 80ftlbs.

    What should I buy?

    For comparison I bought 2 makita 6.5" circular saws, 4 3ah batteries, 2 dewalt 3 ah batteries, 2 cordless hammer drill. I rang total tools here, who are also selling skins and batteries loose now, even with the shipping I paid i got the 2 drills and dewalt batteries for free.

    I like my Hitachi, but thats predominantly because the actual rattle gun body is smaller. It doesnt have the grunt of the bigger guns, but its far more handy when you are using it often.

    As long as you have access to the cars cig lighter or battery this is great for wheel nuts. They are like $100

    You can get a Makita BTW450, 2 batteries and Aussie charger for $450.00 from America delivered. Almost half price compared to Australia

    A touch under $300 for the rattle gun (WR18DL), drill (DS18DL) two batteries, and a charger. Extra $20 for the 110v-240v transformer.

    Adding it up from a couple of local suppliers thats almost $850 locally.

    Every brand makes a smaller style rattle gun, my friend has the makits small one, still a good thing.

    I have some Hitachi angle grinders and they seem fine, I bought some Hitachi drivers for my dad, he has his own cabinet making business and says they are ok but prefers Makita, bought some new makita ones from USA for him with the 1.5 Ah Batteries to keep the weight down.

    I have the makita 450. I bought it as a skin with a battery from US and it was hell cheap.

    It's nuts, I love it. I already had the charger.

    Yeah beast of a thing. I'm also getting the right angle impact wrench for bolts the 450 can't get to.

    the right angle impact 3/8 isn't any good for anything heavy duty.

    I use it for doing up stuff, but I always crack bolts with a 3/8 rachet first when undoing.

    the 450 will sheer wheel studs with ease.

    Don't want it to crack bolts just to loosen bolts in hard to reach places after cracking it.

    Does it actually do a true 60nm tho??

    haven't measured it mate. couldn't tell you. I can tell you it doesn't have much muscle.

    I find many uses for it and I love it, but would I buy it again? probably not.
