True about brushed but those can be found cheap particularly used since they're low performance and high durability.ES_Revenge wrote: ↑ True, but nobody wants the brushed M18 stuff lol. Also even though those are cheaper that does nothing about the astronomical battery and charger prices.
Most of the brushless non-Fuel M18 tools are basically within spitting distance of the Fuel versions though, so those are fine. However I think the non-Fuel brushless line is fairly small and I don't think they are adding anything to it these days.
Fuel is night and day different than the regular brushless. Completely different motors that lead the industry, many have really good anti vibe as well which is what makes them so smooth.
