How long do the brushes tend to last on the Makita router? They seem to be outperforming my Dewalt routers. Also, is there a good place to purchase brush replacements?
They’re a standard replacement part — any Makita dealer should have them or be able to order them.
Usually 100–150 hours of operation (yet another reason to keep machine logs).
I’ve used ereplacementparts.com for brushes for my DeWalt random orbit sanders and have been satisfied with the response. I use a set in each of two sanders about every 45 days.
