Drill is compact and steardy very effective all kinds of work slightly heavy to be fair but on the all impressed.
It’s a makita that’s all i’m saying.
The makita 18v is the ultimate combi drill, i use this drill in a professional capacity most days and there is nothing as powerful or as reliable as this on the market. Can not recommend it enough. If after a while the drill stops working purchase some new brushes for a few pounds of amazon and replace them as i done this with with my other makita and it’s still going strong. Here are the specifications for the Makita 18V 16mm Cordless Body Only Lithium-Ion Compact 2-Speed Combi Drill:
- Compact design, only 225mm overall length
- 2 speed gearbox
- High operational efficiency with high torque
- Enhanced dust and drip-proof performance for use in outdoor applications or harsh environments
- Single sleeve keyless chuck allows for easy bit installation/removal by one hand
Time, had to send part back. When this eventually arrived i was very pleased with it, and all of my old batteries fitted.
Reviews from purchasers :
- The one to get
- looking for a h/duty drill ? this ones for you.
This is a good drill except the light on it is in the wrong place & does nothing for it but a strong drill & good value.
Excellent production first class.
Excellent for the price sparked a lot at first but when the motor bushes worn in it was fine.
0 battery and charger ,this drill seemed to be just the ticket for my next diy job which was laying a newchipboard floor. The drill drove the 50mm screws though the chipboard and into the joist with ease. This is a powerful well made drill fit for the professional or diy’er. The twin light is not the best in close jobs and whilst i know bought a body only,perhaps makita could supply it in a small case,for its future protection. Overall i am very pleased with this drill.
The daddy of coreless drills, this makita is the current top of the range model, i bought this to replace by old lxt, and to use my existing lxt battery and charger. The torque is immense, build quality is immense too. Chuck is made in japan, and everything else seems very well made, as if its made in japan / england / germany, without the cheap chinese feel you see on other branded drillsexcellent, expensive, but the best you can buy, anywhere.
. What else do you need to say.
One of the best pieces of kit i have ever boughtlove it and it turned up within a couple of days. If you are a professional you need to buy this drill.
First one burnt out after a couple of usage but replacement has been ok so far.
I appreciate the 3 year warranty as with most cordless drills if they are used all day everyday the working life is probably only 2 years and for £70 it doesnt matter. Personally i think it is a huge improvement on the bhp451 with torque and size being big improvements, still not a cordless sds but not bad.
Initially i bought the other 18v makita li-ion drill driver with case, charger and two 1. It was great, but the batteries weren’t compatible with other makita stuff. So i ended up upgrading to this one. By comparison this is the more powerful drill. It has huge amounts of power, solid plastic, rather than rubberised chuck, detachable stopper and secondary handle thingy (whatever you call it). Two speeds, hammer, drill or screwdriver action. An excellent, solid bit of kit that should last decades.
My husband is very satisfied.
Great price unbeaten by anyone (in uk including ebay). I can understand why this is the top cordless drill makita make & why it has an extra handle. Sooo powerfull not for the limp wristed over 80nm of torque in low gear. Small for the punch it packs. Great control of speed & torque. Superb chuck & the light is very usefull. Battery’s are a bit of a rip off price compared to the competition. 0 amp chinese copy but still with samsung cells, you can get a copy 4.
Powerful good action – maybe a little heavy.
Short, stocky yet rugged and well-made. Usual makita legendary quality. Has a different (metal) chuck to the usual polymer/metal jaw type. Plenty powerful, useful for restricted spaces.
High quality, very good value for money. I use it on a daily basis and i would buy this product again.
Superb drill had one for years. Mine gave up after many years and a complete self housebuild.
