Rated 5 out of 5Â by JasonW Amazing bit of kit!!
I purchased this pack as I lost my old Sparky 10.8v drill/driver charger.
I used the drill/driver for counter sinking and pilot hole drilling 1150 holes in solid composite deck boards. Yes I did say 1150 holes!!
It performed superbly and each battery completed about 150 pilot holes. My normal power tool of choice is Makita 18v Lithium but this 10.8v kit is so much lighter and easy to handle for this kind of work. I did use the impact driver to place several 60mm Spax deck screws (29675) but found it was a little slow compared to my 18v tools which was expected.
I think me and the 10.8v kit will get on well with my multi job work life. Quick to charge with two batteries on hand.
What more can I say other than well done Makita.
The sturdy box is also excellent. If you remove the foam insert you can fit all kinds of kit in the box and keep the drivers in your job bag.
I'm only giving three stars for reliability as I've only used the kit for three days. So far it's excellent.
I've been a Makita fan for the last 14 years and wouldn't change.

Had this Makita Cordless triple pack a month now and I am disappointed with the battery life. I purchased this item after a bosch cordless unit I had for over 2 years got damaged on site so this was a bit of a hasty purchase as needed a cordless screwdriver asap and the local branches of screwfix didn't have the Bosch units in stock so went with the Makita....mistake.
Even when batteries fully charged the life span is very short compared with the bosch. Last approx. half an hour with not a great deal of use, (I'm an electrician so fixing boxes etc). Nothing that should be a problem for this kind of kit !!
Honestly thinking of returning the unit as not that happy with battery life!!!
Shame as box etc very sturdy and well presented bit of kit.

Amazing little drill and driver. I cant believe that I have not had an impact driver until now.
The impact driver can put away 100mm screws much better than my 18v Hitatchi drill.
Both tools really light and nice to hold.
It a shame the you dont get a 3rd battery for the torch.
I have not had the item long weekend enough to comment on battery life and reliability.
