    Cordless Mult-Tool question, Makita Vs Dewalt?

    I'm after a cordless multi-tool (18V) for general DIY and unsure of the Dewalt brand.

    Features I'd like:
    Keyless Tool change - as i suspect i'll lose the key.
    An LED light
    18V

    I already own a 4 year old Makita drill using a a 3.0ah LXT battery.
    So buying the Makita DTM51Z bare unit (£112) would be an option, however it lacks the LED light.
    I also don't know how long the current lxt battery i have will last.
    I'd just buy what i need blade wise from saxton.

    Makita have another cordless multi-tool which has a light, but requires a key. This is just £89 bare unit.

    Alternatively Screwfix have a deal on a Complete Dewalt Cordless Multi-Tool, with a case, 2 x 2.0A batteries, charger, some accessories and it has both keyless tool change and an LED light. Price £189

    I have no experience of Dewalt (although i can register for a 3 year warranty). I'm also i'm concerned that the 2.0Ah batteries might not be powerful enough.

    Can anyone share their insight? Thanks in advance.

    I prefer my Dewalt one over the Makita one I had.
