Makita UV3200 Lawn Scarifier - Lawn scarifiers (Black, Cyan) £141 @ Amazon
Posted 7th MayPosted 7th May
Its get the lawn ready season and if like me you are looking to buy a scarifier, you will notice that the country seems to be out of stock of anything decent in the under 150 mark.… Read more

No but they had loads last week


I've used hyundai mowers and they have been good, but never the scarifier. My scarifier is the Bosch Avr and if you can find one they are excellent!


Anyone got any experience of this Hyundai? I have an Ioniq and thought is this the Ioniq of scarifiers? :D My back grass is a state so really need to invest in one of these and re-seed. I'd have loved to jump on the Lidl, Aldi, Screwfix ones but they are all out of stock.


Makita is not considered a professional brand for gardening - Al-Ko have a better reputation in the gardening sector.


Have you got a link?

Makita 36v Cordless 38cm Lawnmower with 4 x 5ah batteries and dual charger £318.15 at scottdirect1 ebay

How big is your lawn? I have a couple of 4ah batteries already so would be interested to know how I'd get on after selling the 2 freebies. Obviously this deal is done but there are others near this price as stated. Thanks


Thanks in that case not worth buying from them.


I would think so yes. When claiming the free gift you have to enter the name of the makita reseller and it filters through a pre-populated list.


Actually surprisingly good. And the 36v chainsaw is good too


Greese Gorilla on Ebay still have some in stock at Similar price but do not appear to be authorized dealer. Would that be an issue when claiming the free batteries?

There's no point arguing about brands. People like what they like and find reasons to back up whatever they've decided. If you're starting from scratch the closest you could get is to look at what the trades are using on site, nobody is going to work day in day out with a crap drill. I don't really care if one brand can do 101 screws instead of 100 or even if it puts them in half a heartbeat faster. That's the stuff for youtubers to salivate over.


Sorry but you’re in no position to force your wrong opinion to others,and have no credibility because it’s obviously you who is a Makita fanboy here,just read this same thread there are at least 2-3 complains about Makitas flawed wobbly chuck of this drill XD and you say Milwaukee ,the top quality leading brand has reliably issues? Lol you also don’t know the difference between impact driver and Makita is a good brand just like Dewalt and Bosch but not in the same league as Milwaukee/ Fein / Festool and that’s just the way it is. If you want to talk about Milwaukee visit this thread you’ll see everyone will disagree with you: I’m done here.


I ain’t looking to troll and arguing with a fanboy starts looking a little like that. I understand you’ve invested and want to defend your purchase so good luck to you. I will just say things straight, if it’s good I’ll say so but I won’t defend any manufacturers poor product. If you watch the full video I posted the guy is bang on, watch other videos, all different brands win, he may not be 100% but he calls it pretty straight imo. Milwaukee do some decent stuff but one of the very best is a stretch, what does AvE call them? Perhaps all these reviews are from people sponsored by Bosch or Makita but I doubt it, either way have a look at Milwaukee trustpilot… Ouch!


The posted video is about Impact drivers ,I was talking about drill drivers,they are different yes,”really”.. also I can find YouTube videos showing certain brand doing better than others for literally any brand..many are sponsored.. Milwaukee is one of the very best tools brands,many believe it to be the overclockers best and they sell millions and millions of tools,and you say I’m “extremely” lucky to not have issues? (lol) That’s one of the most ridiculous things I ever heard on this website.


You may be extremely lucky but whilst all brands have issues, Milwaukee seem to be failing more than the rest combined where I work. As for nothing else compares in 12v, really? Here is one of the most comprehensive YouTube tool testers doing 12v impacts, note the Milwaukee is “crushed” in his words…

Makita DHS680Z 18v Brushless 165mm Circular Saw Bare Unit - £139 @ Amazon

The Makita18v Brushless 165mm Circular Saw Bare Unit is powered by an 18V Li-ion battery. This saw is ideal for professionals and DIY enthusiasts. The DHS680 boasts high power cutt… Read more

I have this its for light use , will striggle on some things if citting along grain , will not be a straight cut blades are thinner so easily shifts from cutting line. Otherwise it is a great saw , ideal for cutting into and lifting floorboards, sheds, fences etc, cross cuts are also good.


Fantastic saw, worth every penny.


The brushless should be more powerful than brushed. I have a brushed DeWalt cordless and sufficient with a 5ah battery but suspect their brushless one would fly but double the price so fine as a DIYer. I use it quite a lot (y)


I know the feeling, I've been using Makita for so long but would love to swap for Milwaukee for the extra power. Still a big believer in corded rather than wireless but this is a great bit of kit. A pity the adapter and rail for these is so expensive.

The £90 earlier in the year was even better! Didnt last long though

Any deals for a belt sander? The DBS180Z


Ah ok, so what is the point in there being a 152 and 156?


Sorry the 156 is a brushed model ( all brushless makitas are ether labelled so or labelled BL which this isn’t, also the spec sheet doesn’t mention it being brushless. Makita’s confusing numbering system doesn’t help / make logical sense.


Not according to the manufacturer the parts diagram even has the part number for replacement brushes. Unless you know something they don't (lol)

If every tool came with a battery and charger, I would have 15 spare chargers!


It is entirely normal. Most tools are sold like this, and for good reason


I’m right handed, and have had no problems with the layout. The guide on mine can swap to either side if that helps. Also used it left handed, and did just, fine thanks to the guard.


I have made a note of this company: Body Only Machine, supplied without battery or charger! Naff and greedy way of selling an item.


Built up areas. Especially traffic lights!
