Depends on the specific machine. Marketing-wise, DeWalt is the higher end line. But, you can't accurately say that "DeWalts are yellow Black&Deckers". For example, several of the DeWalt routers come from the purchase of Elu.
I've never heard anyone refer to a Milwaukee drill as a "red Sioux"...
Just my 2 cents worth---B&D first bought DeWalt in the '70s (or there abouts)---I had a B&D/DeWalt radial arm saw. Up until , maybe the '90s, B&D still put out a darned good tool---then DeWalt expanded it's line of tools, and stuff under the B&D name suddenly became comparable to the cheapy Skill and Ryobi tools. Hint---if you every find old B&D tools at a swap meet or garage sale---buy them---aside from brushes, you can't kill them!
