Given the fact that we are manufacturer's of Custom wire baskets, It is crucial that we have equipment that can meet our needs and demands. We have always used Bosch products in the past, but I have since decided to switch over to Makita. Our employees have stated that the unit is very easy to use, and is more lightweight then shears we have had in the past. As the buyer for ThreeMTool, I am looking forward to purchasing other Makita products, The pricing is fair, and it is by far the best shear we have used in house.
