Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by makita!!! Drill is great I bought a set of six tools had a smaller drill in it I couldn't drill concrete in the hammer mode with it but with this one I can do anything with great drill February 21, 2015
Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by Electrical Contractor Bought a combo kit about 4 years ago and use it almost daily. The XLT drill works great overall. It's high torque allows for drilling studs and joists with a 7/8" self feeding wood bit. There are some times when because of the number of holes or the hardness of wood I still need to grab my my corded hole hog drill. It's not good for drilling out a whole house but great for smaller projects. I did melt the internal part of the plastic trigger once with very heavy drilling. It's a pretty good one size fits all drill since its light and I do a lot if switch and plug installation. Just bought another non-XLT version of the same drill. It's even lighter and still drills studs and joists. The batteries hold up well. I've charged them hundreds of times if not a thousand and they still work pretty good although one went bad recently during the 5 Degree cold spell. I've owned 3 of the chargers and each of them give off a heavy arc when plugging them in. Not sure why they haven't fixed that. The head of the drill eventually got to where I have to spin it 180 degrees before it would lock in place to install a bit. I often wonder why people buy the cheaper off brand drills. It would be better to go without a drill for a while, save up for nicer one and buy a drill that's enjoyable to use and really packs a punch for power. February 11, 2014
Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by Great products, can be made to use the BL 1815 battery type Purchased this because I'm a big fan of all my other Makita products. You can make the BL 1815 batteries fit this hammer drill by simply cutting a slot in the battery to allow the small metal tab it sticks out underneath the drill to pass through that Slot in the battery. If you try to slide the BL 1815 battery in and bump it several times against that you will see exactly where it is hitting the battery and what is preventing you from using that battery. BL 1830 offers some other upgrades or advances however I prefer not to spend $99 when I already have 2 Of the 18 V BL 1815 batteries August 16, 2013
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Solid tank like drill Solid like a tank, heavy but there's where it's solidity comes from. Seems very durable and it is very aggressive when it comes drilling. Good power. Nice design, chuck seems very well made. Stylish too. Great torque for driving. Great tool for the heavy duty worker. March 24, 2013
Rated 2.0 out of 5.0 by Makes a good paper weight I have fried the clutch on three of these drills. It cannot not handle the daily tasks of a half inch hammer drill on the job. The first couple of times I was using a hole saw when the clutch went. The repair shop replaced the brushes, the clutch is still broken. Third time is a charm, right? Wrong. I stayed away from hole saws and still fried it hogging holes for plumbing runs. Oh, and the hammer feature is so painfully slow and under powered that I never even consider grabbing this drill for that task. For a home owner to-do-list tool, you will probably be quite happy. Maybe a DIYer will appreciate this dril, but probably not. Proffesionals stay away! December 1, 2013
Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by POWERFUL I bought this as a replacement to my LXFD01. This is a little heavier but the power is there. Already used it to put together hard maple cabinets no problem, drilled anchors in concrete no problem. My main problem is with Makita not stating that the BL1815 battery would not fit. You would think that it would as it is listed a 18 volt product. It took me a few minutes to figure out how to make them fit. With a file ground a small groove in the battery pack so it would slip in, works like a charm. I have 4 BL1815 batteries and did not want to give them up. Overall this drill has lots more power with a little more weight but still easy to use and manageable size for tight places. I recommend this drill to anyone. If it was not for the battery, I would have rated this much higher June 15, 2014
Rated 2.0 out of 5.0 by Powerful but slow Needed a drill to go along with my Makita grinder, so I got this one since they can both use the same batteries. I was previously using a Ryobi 18v drill that cost $30 less than this and came with batteries and extra tools, so I thought this Makita would blow that away in performance. I was totally wrong. I only use this to drill through metal, and the Ryobi was faster and got caught less often than this drill. I haven't used the hammer drill function yet, but as far as the basic drill setting, it is lacking. I think it's the speed since it doesn't spin as fast as my Ryobi did. I wanted to like it, but I don't. If I hadn't bought it for work I would probably have returned it already. December 23, 2013
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by This product has great features. I like the fact that is has mini light on the chuck to see in those tight places. This a replacement for a drill stolen. May 9, 2013
