Rated 5 out of 5Â by ROCKGAS21 THIS DRILL IS ABSOLUTE MINT
Why didn't I buy this before, it is hardy, easy to use and is the "hulk" of all machines, made my life so easy. Putting holes into thick, stone walls to install a gas flue is now done in minutes rather than all morning with the old machine! Definitely would recommend and will buy again, should I need again.

Got this as an addition to a 2KG Dewalt as I wanted something with a bit more oomph for longer chiselling jobs.
Box sinking and chasing has been totally effortless though I did have to dial the (chiselling) power down as Victorian plaster isn't as strong as I thought.
I've marked down Value and Reliability as I'm a diyer and it's an expensive bit of kit. I've also only had mine a month so can't comment on reliability.
However I don't doubt the build quality and like to have decent quality tools.

This drill replaced my earlier model which was so popular someone stole it!. This one is even better with plenty of controlled power, a safety clutch and best of all one function selector to choose between hammer only, drill, and hammer drill. The selector also allows the user to turn and then lock the bit to any position - handy when chiselling. The anti-vibration technology of the handle and gearbox really do work with minimal tiredness after prolonged hammer work. The heavy duty carry case has plenty of room for all the drills and chisels necessary. Like all Makita gear, expensive, but worth every penny if you want a tool to do the job and last for years.
