Rated 5 out of 5 by from Awesome tool I bought this for a house renovation along with a tri-cutter, initially to cut recesses for electrical back boxes and channeling. I have previously used club hammer and cold-chisel but it’s a slow process. With the Makita, I had installed a double back box in just over 5 minutes. I use a 5amp battery and was still over 50% full after an hour, the added benefit of buying a brushless tool, so for me worth the extra money. The tool feels very well made and I like the compact size. It is noisy, so ear protection is essential. The function knob can be a little tricky to turn at times, but a quick pull on the trigger releases it. It does mention this in the instructions. The house has concrete lintels, and had previously struggled to drill into them for putting up curtain poles, but this cuts through them like a hot knife in butter. I’m used to using tools with a light, but this doesn’t have one which was a little disappointing, but only a minor inconvenience at times. I recently took a wall down using my corded 6.3kg SDS breaker, but having the option of a smaller lighter tool is great, as it allowed me to clean up the rough edges before installing a timber frame. Worth every penny in my opinion, and the service at ScrewFix was as good as ever.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great first impression review Bought this drill to replace a 24v Bosch drill because batteries are no longer available, and I was not disappointed, it is a lot lighter so working above your head is a lot easier, and it certainly has the power, had to fit a lot of curtain tracks, so I was drilling into lintels and it went through effortlessly, very impressed so far, only had it for a week but looking forward to putting it through it paces.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Makita quality This is my 3rd one of these drills. I've just replaced one that died last week. It was 6 years old and had been used almost daily in the most demanding of conditions. It spent most of its working life as a mini breaker with an SDS plugging chisel cutting out bricks etc. Much of the time it was used by people that I wouldn't trust with anything, I mean anything, because they'd destroy it and abuse the tool to destruction. For 6 years the drill worked perfectly and then last week I got a whiff of its imminent death when the motor started to smoke. Eventually, it expired and my heart was broken. Fortunately, Screwfix were able to supply me with a replacement the following day. Naturally, I kept the old one partly because I was attached to it and partly because I wondered if a miracle would happen and get it back on its feet again. A quick search of the internet revealed its inner workings and a supplier of a replacement stator assembly. I did a heart transplant on the broken one today and the operation was a complete success and quite simple to do. Now I have two of these awesome drills, I'm so excited that I can hardly think straight or sit still. Come Monday I can bore twice as many holes in things as before. Buzzing!
