Bosch blue vs. Dewalt vs. Milwaukee

Contribution from Bastian »Aug 28, 2005, 3:35 pm

Hello everybody,
I want to get some new tools. More precisely, a hammer drill, an angle grinder, a circular saw and a jigsaw. Now I was a staunch Bosch proverb all along. When I went to the stockist somehow got me to Dewalt and Milwaukee. What can you say about it. So I used the tools privately at my own house and sometimes to help friends. That's why I'll only get the lower performance class.

PS: Dewalt is built exclusively (according to the dealer) in Germany. So there are several pluses for that.

PPS: Will the tools get to Hilti? The dealer even thought better.

Better, worse ...

These discussions run here every week, the result is always that there is no result.

It is clear that when in doubt, the specialist dealer always finds Hilti worse than any of the brands they stock - they cannot sell Hilti to you.

Hilti circular saws are built by Mafell - along with Festool, Mafell is the top brand for circular saws.

Hilti angle grinders are built by Bosch, so Hilti can hardly be better or worse.

In a certain quality or performance segment, the various brands don't do much anymore - all machines for continuous commercial use.

Milwaukee was sold to China a few months ago, that's all I can say about it, I haven't had a machine from Milwaukee in my hand and I haven't noticed Milwaukee in specialist shops around here either.

Bosch, the German classic. I know a lot of craftsmen who have any blue machines, none of them complains about it, then I think the tool is OK. is.

DeWalt has a friend, a carpenter, and swears by it, mainly because of the price. Here in the forum it has been reported several times that the battery technology from DeWalt is leading. There are currently several DeWalt discount campaigns, you would have to find something on www.dewalt.de.

One of mine swears by Hilti for the rough and Festool for the filigree.

If you are seriously considering Hilti, you should definitely talk to the sales force, including about the offers from other manufacturers. I wouldn't be surprised if Hilti could keep up with the price.

Hitachi also has good tools with good value for money, analogous to Makita.

And now you are as smart as before

Greeting
Markus

Servus, Markus,

could you please explain in more detail which Dewalt tools these craftsmen specifically appreciate!

Hello Christian,

a detailed list of the machinery would go beyond the scope of this forum.

With the exception of the hand-held circular saws (Mafell), the colleague has everything possible in yellow - cordless screwdrivers, impact wrenches, nailers (the new cordless nailer is very nice for interior work), drills ... - whatever a carpenter has on the car. The only argument is probably the price - according to the motto: The other stuff costs more and also breaks. However, his tool supplier http://www.haeberlin-maschinen.de/index.html is also colored slightly yellow. So I would speak less of "appreciating" and more of realism and commercial thinking.

In my experience, people who have to earn their bread with tools do not have the brand fetish like we do here in the forum.

Greeting
Markus

Hello,

only this much, even among DeWalt friends, one thing should be undisputed: that DeWalt manufactures all e-tools in Germany is completely wrong.
Additional question to those who know the brand: does Dewalt even manufacture an electric tool in Germany?

Hi,

... small note: Hilti and Milwaukee are probably the only two manufacturers who offer an 'all-round happy' guarantee package, i.e. wear parts are also included in the guarantee.
In practice, however, it is more likely that long-term users will benefit from it (who are then willing to pay a little more for this service at the purchase price).
Dewalt actually manufactures an electric tool in Germany
no idea - but rotary hammers may still be developed here: click
(If you are interested, you can read a patent description of the people mentioned in the PDF here: click)

'..... From the headquarters and national distribution center in Idstein (founded in 1967), in addition to Germany, the markets in Austria, Switzerland, Eastern Europe, Turkey, Israel, North Africa, Central East Asia and South Africa are supplied. The sales company for Germany and Eastern Europe employs 237 people ... '
... is on the GLS website

Greetings, hs

So,
just want to say that I have made up my mind (wens interresiert).
Take a Bosch blue hammer GBH2-26 DFR in the case,
Bosch blue circular saw GKS 55 in bag, Metabo jigsaw STE 100 Plus and a Metabo angle grinder WQ 125.
All of this at your local specialist dealer. So no Ebay shit or something for a net 612 euros + small accessories such as chisels, saw blades, etc.
It's quite acceptable.
