I have the feeling quality depends. Black & Decker seems to have a nice quality in the states and canada but here in europe it seems to be different.
I have a B&D circular saw, without being insulting, it´s crap compared to my FESTO circular. Ok fair enough these are different price ranges but I
had to apply my own fixes to make it precise and somehow durable.
Same with the atlas copco, I used a portable drill and the quality was comparable to those 50€ drills you get at the supermarket. But it may depend.
I´m not saying both are bad in general, just showing how different experiences can be.
BOSCH, even the green ones (home professional) are nearly unbreakable and last forever if you treat them right. They are nearly comparable to the blue
ones (expert, industry). The old ones at least the new ones have a different type of plasticc and slightly darker color.
Their 36V portable impact drill is awesome!
Not actually a fanboy type of guy but almost every electric power tool I use is from BOSCH, simply because they also offer awesome service. FESTOOL is
also great of course, never let me down once.
