Trusted brand
I bought this to replace my 7 year old makita 18v drill. Which still works I might add. My chuck on the old seized. Mainly my fault. Got wet a few times and rusted. I've never had a better product. Makita knows what they are doing. Only thing I'd like to see on the drill is a holder for a spare bit or a different bit.

We bleed Makita blue!
Our fence company uses all Makita battery tools. They are abused daily.Rain, snow, dirt and dust. Yes they wear out, but not by sitting in the truck!

Great drill
I had one before. Snapped the bolt that retains the chuck. These will hold up to some very heavy usage and drilling.

Couldn't ask for much more.
As a Union pipefitter, power tools need to be of high quality to pass my test. I can not afford to be let down, by tools my employer buys, or tools I buy for home use.

This is a great hammer drill. Setting up a form to hold a concrete patch is a breeze, as all you need is this drill, the right bits, some plywood, and concrete screws. Owning an older home, and doing small projects to help family, a hammer drill is a must have to me.

This drill is light weight, and is comfortable when in use. It certainly is not the right choice if you need to drill large holes in concrete, as that would be best done by a drill that is corded and uses SDS bits. But, for projects like attaching brackets to a basement concrete wall for a laundry shelf, or just to attach to masonary of any type, this drill is a smart buy.

If you want to have one powerful drill that can do wood, metal, concrete, and set screws in for you, this one is a great choice. The only drawback is the drill having only one battery, but the case has room for a 2nd battery if you choose to buy another. The batteries are useful on a wide assortment of products, so your collection can easily grow.

I would recommend getting a drill like this with a 1/4 inch impact driver if possible, as the impact driver is great at setting screws in any material.

Over all, I am very satisfied with my purchase!

I love this drill. It was a great deal and packs a good punch. The battery last long as well. Highly recommend this drill.
