Very interesting video. videos like this.A lot of AVito now devalta, once wanted to buy myself, but looked closely and changed my mind.The original, by the way, has a bigger anchor.

Do not like DeWALT, I criticize the brand Dnipro m.

I bought a DeWALT angle grinder in 2012, it still works fine.

I like Bosch better. Hilky. Makita

Russians have no brains. Make your own tools. You have everything in the ground !! You just need a brain and less to drink. In Moldova we have only agrarians, and only stone under the ground.

Good evening. Useful video, it is better to buy in a trusted store. I really like this company’s tools. At the moment I have a peorator, jigsaw and angle grinder, which was discussed in this video. angular grinder use very often for four years in general, no problems.

Not a bad and well thought out firm on ergonomics. Screwdriver and wrench available

Maximum doschitelno, very much like to watch not even rewritten, keep it up !

Types of counterfeit power tools

Before you ask yourself which tool is worth buying and which is not, you need to understand the terminology. All power tools that are not recommended for purchase are divided into original, but uncertified and simple knockoffs. Original, uncertified, imported into the country illegally, often gets past customs. Therefore, the cost of such a tool may be a little underestimated. These tools are made at Bosch, Makita and other brands, so there can’t be any complaints about their quality. But you shouldn’t buy it, and here’s why. These power tools are made, as a rule, for other countries of the world, and then by “left” ways, get to us. There may be no PCT marks on them.

In addition, if the tool was made for another country, it is quite possible that it is designed for other operating conditions, for example, for a certain voltage in the electric network (it is different in different countries). No one can give a guarantee that in our conditions the same drill, geyser or any other tool made for other countries will function as it should.

As for counterfeit power tools, everything is much clearer. Usually they are made from low-quality materials in clandestine shops, and the quality is out of the question. Works such tool, of course, not long, although sometimes justifies its cost (a fake, passed off as original, is usually cheaper).

However, if the fake power tool will break, that’s still half the trouble. What’s more dangerous is if it causes harm to your health. You don’t have to go far for an example. Many drills of well-known brands are equipped with electric motors in which the winding is made with double insulation wire (a kind of precaution and protection against electric shock). In a fake, passed off as the original, everything is easier. For windings normal copper wire with single insulation is used. If the insulation is broken, and you can not doubt that sooner or later it will happen anyway, you can easily get an electric shock with all the ensuing consequences.

What you should pay attention to

To buy a quality and original tool, it is better to buy it through an official representative of the company. If you buy a fake, then it will be difficult to find parts for it if they fail unexpectedly. Many people wonder where to buy DeWALT parts with delivery. If suddenly some parts are out of order, it is not necessary to change the tool. You can buy the parts from a reputable supplier.

First of all it is necessary to choose a reliable seller. It is better to do it either in a service center or in a trusted store. Then the probability to buy a fake will be significantly reduced. This also applies to spare parts. It’s important to remember that even a decent supermarket can run into a counterfeit. When buying a tool, you should pay attention to the following aspects:

  • The tool’s appearance. It is better to look at the picture of the original tool beforehand, to save the picture and then compare it to what is on the shelf.
  • The information in the documents. The serial number should always be present on the tool, and it should coincide with the number that is written in the documentation.
  • The quality of assembly. The tool must look as neat as possible. If you can see big gaps between the parts, you may be facing a counterfeit.

In addition, the documentation must necessarily indicate a sign of conformity of the mandatory certification. If it is missing, it indicates that the buyer is a fake, or the tool was imported into the country illegally.

In the second case, the tool will be original and of good quality, but the buyer can not get a warranty card for it, and if the equipment fails before the warranty period, no one will return the money to the buyer.

In some cases, illegally imported products, which should only be sold in the U.S., are designed to work with voltages up to 110 volts. They do not withstand a greater load. When plugged into a 220-volt outlet, the tool can quickly fail.

Hello! My name is Eugene. I am passionate about making various design products, as well as machines and tools, in my spare time. On the pages of this site I will publish various articles on the topic of technical creativity. The main thing is that you can use your own hands to make different things, devices, tools and machines at home.

How not to buy a fake electric screwdriver DeWALT or Makita on avito.I show you how to tell the difference and who sells.

Well look you have nothing to complain about all you barkers and that is another why people sprinkle hto how can and earns so I schitayu and if you take a cheap then China is better to just a quality, and different tool in his life tried many brands and sit on the PC and do not try, and even listen to no point.

My friend I am from the region, I use only DeWALT for more than three years, almost all the tools I took from the official. Only 791 picked up at Costorama.

I watched a few of your videos, you leave an impression of a very competent tool man. Help me choose. Makita DDF453SYX5 (for valdberis sell with a gift battery at 3 mA) are 7300 or Interskol DAU-13/18V (1akb 4mA) for the same 7000. For home use, to drill a hole in a brick wall to mount the TV bracket on the wall, replace the floor in the room. Or even a whirlwind for 4K should be enough. I live in a small town, the salaries are small. Choose a more expensive tool is not possible.

The ears on the battery delivered:) People don’t even bother to write correctly. But seriously, maybe throw in a couple more and get a normal factory-made Chinese like Crown, Patriot, Vihr, etc.д. With a one-year warranty, and do not deal with nonsense. You’ll see, and the number of sellers of this gen will go on the wane.

Hello all!) Vasily, the most interesting thing when it is written on the nameplate Makita “Made in Japan”, and stands the letter “K.Who do not know the topic, it means that made in the Makita factory in China, as well as the letter Y.The contradiction should immediately bring to the idea of a fake)

I’m on Avito bought mostly Makita, and sold more than once. no problem. Advice for those who want to buy on Avito, but are not good at it. Choose from those who sell the same brand, the same Makita for example, and many positive reviews.

At the market, two fools One sells another buys !

In order not to screw up just type in the model name in the search engine that you see in the photo in the announcement and if the manufacturer’s site it does not exist and on sale in federal networks such does not exist not buy at least compare the photo shell charger and acb (color tongues shape acb as well as their voltage) with what is on sale in the store and yes compare the price type savings of 1000-1500r funny and in fact you take that at ali express is not 4000r and conventionally 2000r. don’t buy not on avito if you’re not all hoovered up

Vasily thank you for the information would not be bad about Makita avito batteries. Like.

Respect to those who wrote the non-original / a copy, but those who simply write angular grinder Makita, it’s tinny.Because of this all this garbage in the search is caught, as before it was easy to look for what is on Avito from the original tool.

Signs of counterfeiting

To avoid unnecessary material costs and injury situations when working with power tools, experts recommend learning in advance how to distinguish a fake electric screwdriver from the original. The models of famous brands are distinguished by quality body material (metal or impact-resistant plastic with a matte finish), have a balanced weight and a comfortable grip. The original assembly is indicated by ribbed surfaces, rubber inserts, a close and exact fit of the adjacent parts, the absence of backlashes and uneven gaps.

Fakes are almost always smooth, as if glossy. The body usually has visible paint splashes and paint unevenness, since the model is painted after it is assembled. Brand units are assembled from parts that have been painted on beforehand.

Another distinctive disadvantage is weak functionality, as the implementation of good options in an electric screwdriver requires the use of special technology and additional material costs.


The genuine models come in practical plastic cases with solid latches. In the center there is a convex name of the manufacturer, made by molding.

On the cardboard “jacket” of the case, the data about the importer, a list of the main characteristics and advantages of the unit are necessarily indicated. In the center of packages of fake tools the buyer will see only a sticker.

Sticker on the side of the case

The real models always have a sticker on the side of the shipping case with the model and serial number. In some cases the manufacturer specifies the values of some technical data.

Firms that produce imitation tools often miss this point. The cases of their models do not have a sticker or contain only information about the brand name.

Complete set

Screwdrivers from major manufacturers will be distinguished by a good set of accessories. In addition to power tools in the package the user will find a battery, charger, passport, certificate of quality and instructions for use of the product. Some units are equipped with a replaceable battery.

The set of brand units necessarily includes documentation in Russian. The fakes in the box only have a manual in English, which does not specify the model, and in some cases the brand of electric screwdriver. There is no translation of the document into Russian.

You can tell a fake battery from the product data sheet. They are even visually different from each other. The package of original screwdrivers of famous brands includes several passports. for the model and charger. The presence of a single document indicates the sale of counterfeit products.

The battery and charger

The battery is the most expensive element of an electric screwdriver, so producers of fakes necessarily save on it. In terms of appearance the battery of fake products differ only in the presence of data on the voltage. The branded ones also have information about amperage (capacity), the brand name in several places.

An important distinguishing feature of the true battery is the sealing of 1 bolt with a plastic plug.

If you consider the internal filling of the power source, then in counterfeit models, which do not differ in weight from the original, some of the cans may be filled with sand. This is the reason for the rapid loss of charge, reduced service life. It is often found in Chinese vorbanks. If the price of an electric screwdriver with a high capacity battery is low, then there is a 99% chance that the model and the battery in it will be fake.

Battery conversion DeWalt Cordless Screwdriver to 18650 cell

In non-original units, the charge is often in the battery itself. If the device is separate, it has no protection mechanisms against overheating, overcharging. This leads to a rapid failure of the battery, additional costs for the purchase of a new one. The original charger necessarily has a sticker with the model, detailed information about the characteristics of the device.

Serial number

To protect their units from counterfeit manufactures emboss or put on the body or case of the product a serial number, which can be checked through the site. In some cases the numbers are duplicated in both places. Companies that produce non-original power tools use a simple sticker with a specific number.

While in the store, the user can find the manufacturer’s official website online. The number is entered in a special window for checking. False machine on the market if the site generates an error.
