Big kits like this generally don't include the top of the line models. The grinder is pretty good though. I doubt you could touch an assortment like this for less than $1k from Hilti, but it's like comparing apples to roller skates, so not really relevant.

I agree. I would look at rigid, Bosch, or Milwaukee
Makita, Milwaukee, and DEWALT are consistently considered the top 3 in almost every existing tool class by most every tool comparison or review. Ridgid makes mediocre at best, Bosch is durable but absolutely gutless, and Hilti are indestructible and make monstrous concrete tools but absolute CRAP contractor tools.

These makita tools are plenty powerful, I own the previous generation of this drill and impact and this sawzall. I'm a handy homeowner and there's no job I've thrown at them they can't do. These 3ah batteries last a LONG time in the drill and driver and two charges of them was enough for me to cut up about 200 linear feet of 6ft wooden fence for disposal. I have $250 in the drill, impact, sawzall, (2) 3ah batts and the charger. This is a good deal.

I've used these exact models of impact, saw, and grinder extensively on the jobsite. The grinder is excellent for a cordless, surprisingly decent on battery, and with enough power to dig into material. I found the ultra-thin Makita cut-off blades to be noticably faster cutting and gentler on batts.

The saw is not quite on the level of the xsh03 brushless, but I'd say it's 90% there, and in the hand, it's nearly identical. It still is nice and light, cuts pretty quick and, and tracks a beautifully straight line. It isn't going to bog down unless you're jamming material senselessly. I used this specific saw all day long for 3 weeks this summer cutting CDX ply 3/4" and 1".

The brushed impact has a touch more power than my subcompact. Not as good on battery, but nice and buttery on long deck-screws. No, it will not bust stuck lugnuts, but you should use a breaker bar or impact wrench for that.

I can't see any contractor finding these inadequate, and anyone who needs more than this is going to be a professional with enough experience to already know what tools will meet their needs.

with GLOBAL MATERIALS

Meaning the parts are made outside the US and then assembled here in the US.

So, you read what you wanted to, not what was there. Didn't say anything about where they are made.
But on a side note, why is it okay to say "your" Toyota is made in the US, but whenever Dewalt is brought up, GLOBAL MATERIALS is thrown out there?

So are Tesla and Harley Davison, that is my point. But where do those manufacturers state, "with global materials"?
It is only with Dewalt tools that it is ever brought up.

No.. what I read was ..... last US owned tool manufacturer .....

however I included the fact that while they are US owned, their parts are made outside the US, something that always seems to be left out when it is mentioned till someone else points it out.

The way you stated it left it open for interpretation and some people may take that as the products are fully produced here in the US.

Didn't say there was a single thing wrong with the parts being made outside the US. You are the one who went down that route.
