Bosch's 18V circular saw too expensive.
Makita has many other interesting tools like grass cutter, fan, even a cordless trim router(future).

So I think using 2 system to have more flexibility of tools.

Bosch GKS 18VLi costs rm900+, Makita's circular saw costs rm600.
Bosch GST 18V costs rm1300+, Makita 18v jigsaw costs rm800.
Bosch's drill generally are cheaper than Makita tho...

Makita has more "toys" to play with, the price difference already enough justification to cover another battery set.

Also, seems like Makita & Bosch is same grade of tool quality?

very unlikely

4.0ah 18v batt packs are already weigh 600g

x 2 = 1.2kg just for battery

a hammer drill would weight 5kg with the battery later. hahah... i sometimes need to dril 30 - 40 x 14mm holes in RC slabs to do waterproofing repair works

imagine how tired i would be carrying 5kg+ tools above the shoulder

cheapest i could find is this:

http://www.lazada.com.my/solo-2p-18v40ahal...20769.html?ff=1

2 x 4.0ah batt pack + charger

with rm 50 discount, it would be RM625

let's say charger cost you RM 100, that means RM525 /2 = RM261 each the batt

still rm 50 more than what newspaper found

haihs... i must learn more from sifu
