Rated 5 out of 5 by from Very pleased I own several Makita products as a tradesman, my last Makita drill broke after a few years of heavy abuse.... this replacement seems better than my old one and the 5.0 amp batteries really make a difference. Would recommend.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Makita DHP481RTJ I have recently bought this drill, and I have not had an opportunity yet to use it, but it seems brilliant. Just one thing - the box is very silly. It is very thick, which is not great, but worse than that it is built to lie flat, with just one handle on the top largest surface, so it cannot be slotted in between or next to other things conveniently. And there is a lot of space above the components inside the box, so if the box tips everything will fall around inside. (the plastic also has that brittle feel to it.) I have taken every component out and put it into a DeWalt box that I already had, and it all fits in there nice and snug. The DeWalt box is quite bulky and heavy, but it is thin, and has handles on 4 sides, which makes it much more convenient.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Brilliant piece of kit! I bought this drill to replace my previous Makita drill as the batteries had finally given up. I've been using(abusing) it for a couple of months now and I have to say it has exceeded my expectations every time. For starters, the battery lasts longer than I do! I have only managed to go through a battery once and that was an unexpected job where I found I needed to hammer drilling holes in very hard concrete posts - It had worn out (by which I mean, blued and totally flattened the drill ends) two SDS drill bits (I have a chuck adapter to use SDS bits in this drill btw) and been driving down concrete screws in between the drilling. By the time the drill stopped, it was on the third SDS bit and I was ready for a cuppa too! Otherwise drilling large holes and screwing down long concrete screws and M10 coach bolts etc repeatedly - no problem all day long. Its a bit of a beast - plenty of turning torque - trust me, if your not using the screwdriver torque setting and don't pay attention or brace yourself, it will either turn you round or just shear off even large screws. That said, with the variable speed trigger its no problem to keep control - if your mind is on the job. For me, this drill's proving to be well worth the extra money, as it get the job done even when I'm taking liberties!

Asked by: Vic3
Yes this battery is fine to be used on all Makita LXT products, these do include grinders and saws, a for extended run time consider purchasing a Brushless version.
