Been looking at this for awhile. Lowest I've seen. This is just for powerhead, no attachments and no batteries. If you buy attachments separately, many qualify for $25 off $100 deal. Place separate orders meeting $100 threshold to get multiple discounts. Don't forget Discover has 5% cashback. My orders were for powerhead, trimmer attachment, pole saw attachment, extension and a blower nozzle (to meet threshold) for $472 (before tax which 5% Discover covers).

To clarify this deal... If you buy the powerhead and trimmer that is linked below, total will be $218. Before tax. Buying that combo from HomeDepot, Toolnut or even Amazon, the price will be $289. CCC shows Amazon's cheapest at $289. This is a pretty good deal if you need these types of tools.

Yes, batteries alone are pretty expensive.

The powerhead doesn't qualify for the $25 off $100 but most of the attachments do. Do separate orders of at least $100 and you will get the $25 off on qualifying Makita items.

If any posters above can find a better deal that includes batteries please post for others. Amazon won't ship batteries to me so never search for deals that include batteries.

I'm not sure about the tiller. YouTube has quite few videos on the pole saw which looks good. Pole saw is main reason I'm getting this. It's a Brushless motor. I have the brushless 2X battery blower and it's about the same as my gas Maruyama commercial one. Also have the cordless and corded track saw. Cordless has the same or more power. So should be good. I believe Makita is coming out with another larger trimmer beginning of next year. Not sure if it takes attachments or is just the string trimmer.

As for batteries... Home Depot has the 2-4ah batteries and charger for $200 and you can add a 2 pack of 5ah for free. So about $50 a battery if you value charger at zero.

Depends on what you want or need. There's cheaper cord pole saws, name or no name cordless, etc. etc etc.

Thanks but... Yes yes yes and yabadaba da.
I have had enough cheap printers purchased through great SD deals, to know how they make their money or those that follow (Makita).

And btw, no battery is made forever. When you find a real deal kit package (INCLUDING BATTERY), you should jump on it because otherwise soon you have to repurchase the existing batteries that are especially subject to lower life span, due to being shared by multiple device (And you thought you are slick or smart...Haha).

That is just to prove how smart is the seller, how good the business model works and most importantly, HOW STUPID is the buyer!

Sorry but not for me as I am grown up... Wave
Of course no battery lasts forever, but that has not been my experience with Makita batteries across a wide range of tools and different AH batteries. Yes, awhile ago some people had issues with bricking batteries due to programming chip in battery/charger. I'm still using 3 AH batteries that are 7 years old. New batteries come 3 year warranty.

You being an adult, it's a bit illogical to call people stupid for buying Makita. Silly really. How about some links confirming your "subject to lower life span" comment?

Hey Makita Guy. And I thought people who pay too much know better. Additionally, though I don't own any Makita to tell you how good or bad this thing is, little I know about physics (And that is a lot more than ave Joe), Any electric motor has higher torque comper to the equally powered gas engine:

This one is very off topic but good general info. If in a hurry, watch from minutes 11:30 onwards:

You have no first hand knowledge with Makita's quality or lack of quality but say he's paying too much without knowing any details of his purchases?

You "know a lot more about physics than the average Joe" but posts two links that have nothing to do with the discussion at hand. I would think most people would realize that torque didn't have much to do with the entertaining PR stunt Musk did with his new Cybertruck, with it's AWD, heavier weight, etc than the 2WD empty bed Ford. And what was the point of the Rivian link?

You seem to be making the point that electric motors produce more torque than gasoline engines? So based on your knowledge and mathematical calculations what size small gas engine is the brushless Makita equivalent of? Just round off to the nearest cc.
