Rated 5 out of 5Â by Joe19 Great product
Bought to replace an old NiCd powered drill, the Makita showed just how weak the old one had become.
Really fast to charge up, great range of speed settings and easy control on the trigger.

The build quality, feel and use of this product are excellent.
Comes with a near full on charged battery out of the box.
Blasts into brick walls like butter on high speed hammer setting. (makita masonary bits from makita multi bit set used, sold seperate)
Drill provides excellent value for money.
It comes with a solid battery charger, case and screwdriver bit, posidrive and flatblade.
Used it to install a security system, with alarm bell box on roof apex, light enough to climb ladders with, completely portable and plenty of power to cut through brick walls.
Feels very positive to hold and plenty of grip with rubber handle.
For a battery drill this has a lot of power, this is felt when tightening the chuck.
I can highly recommend this product, it is very high quality.

The name Makita has been with me since the 1970's - always reliable as a site tool (110v) and over the past few years Makita have produced some outstanding 240v hand tools..
This drill is a fantastic tool and is perfectly balanced (and fast on recharge) at a budget price too. I would recommend this drill to anyone without hesitation.

I bought one by one about 3 of those drills for our workshop. Would i recommend it? yes if you are looking for light-mid duty drill. We are using it for drilling into different types of steel. I wouldn't use it for masonry jobs - seems bit weak for that. but if you want it for DIY at home then i would say yes. This is definitely not Heavy Duty Drill. AND remember to register it on Makita's website for warranty ;o)
