14" Makita cutter prices

Postby Beon » Thu Mar 11, 2010 8:46 am

Shops differ a lot in prices for tools. I thought it would be only around 10% but in this case it is 30%, so its really worth the time to shop around.

These are prices for a 14" Makita 2414NB cutter, 11 March, 2010, in Chiang Mai:

For anyone who does not understand the expression Mom & pop shop, it means (in this context) a small family owned hardware store.

I've been using a cheap 14" Goldex cutter that I bought in the Makro four years ago for Baht 2,600 and it's still going strong.

I got a bit worried when I read the specs for the Makita one, on the website link above. "Max cutting capacity for mild steel 1.6mm". Ive seen thais cutting just about anything with regular 14" cutters, so it shouldnt be a problem.

Does your machine cut regular 2x4", the thicker variety of 3.2mm, without struggling too much?

Absolutely. The motor hasn't even needed the spare graphite brushes that came with it yet.It's noot so much the machine that matters as the quality of the blades you use. They n can cost anything from 60 - 120 baht each. I use the Makita ones at Baht 95.
