Makita DK1486W 10.8V 1.3Ah Li-Ion Cordless Triple Pack
looks like a toy
This is my first Makita purchase and certainly my last.
I bought this primarily for the twin pack, but due to it being overpriced on its own, i bought the twin pack. The impact driver is ok, but time will tell if it will last. The drill is appalling. My first one had a wobbly chuck caused by loose bearings. This was replaced by Makia after 3 months arguing with them, in what must be my worse customer service experience ever for another one with the same fault. They replaced it again, with one that was ok, but both replacements were the wrong colour, because "white is a limited edition" Using the replacement drill today the battery performance is appalling - 36 holes in wood - 8mm and 4mm and ive had to charge the battery 3 times. As for size, the frill is the same size as my 18v DeWalt, which outperforms it quality and performance wise many times. This drill is fine as a childs toy - i wish id stuck to Metabo or Dewalt.

A cracking little set at a stunning price.
Excellent storage box, very useful little torch and grip and two excellent drill/drivers. Remarkably powerful for their size, the two drill units are beautifully balanced and so easy to use. The LED light gives a good spread in dark areas and the triggers on both are smooth to operate from slow to a fast speed.
I have looked at these for a while but the price and the toy-like appearance has put me off. This last Screwfix deal convinced me to purchase and I have been totally impressed at just how good these tools are. Toys they are not and fully backed by a Makita 3 year warranty makes this kit my bargain of the year.

Magnificent kit! well worth the money, especially that I got it at half price! not worried about only being 10.8v, more than powerful enough for my needs.
Only negative is that there are three units but only 2 batteries! Storage box also high quality."

brilliant combination set
Makita quality will rival anything else available. This set is great value with bonus added torch and priced well below competition. Compact, light weight and plenty of power for size. Dont be put off by voltage, punches well above expectation. Recommended.
