The corded Makita was faster through 1” x 8” beveled pine by 2-3 seconds over the rest and vibration is pretty even across the board. Unless, you hold the DeWalt by the pistol grip, in which case it has more vibration than the others.
The Dewalt has this variable speed trigger that goes from 0-20k OPM, which when brought up to full speed can be locked on high, with the trigger itself being the release. Also, the lock on button doubles as a lock-off safety.
Oddly, the raised notches on the adaptor ring that comes with the DeWalt do not line up with the Makita, Milwaukee, or Bosch accessories. The Makita and Milwaukee, on the other hand, took each other’s accessories and will accept universal blades, with no adaptor needed.
I think the Milwaukee has the best grip and was the easiest to control. However, I prefer the DeWalt for its quick blade change and lighter weight. The Makita’s larger size, weight, and lack of work light put in a distant third place. If you have any questions feel free to ask in the comments below.
