No. Even if the battery was able to slide into place, the voltage would not be enough to drive the tool.

Rated 4.0 out of 5 by 12 reviewers.
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 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 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 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 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 4.0 out of 5.0 by Great product, can use BL 1815 battery type Check the insertion slot for the battery on this hammer drill. There is a small metal tab sticking up on one side preventing the insertion of the BL 1815 battery. Simply cut open the notch that is already in the battery to allow it to pass the metal tab. Very easy way to see where/what is preventing the BL 1815 battery insertion is to attempt to slide it in several times, then you can see exactly where the tab is hitting. I already have several BL 1815 batteries and did not want to buy another battery such as the BL 1830. Runs fine using the BL 1815, hope this is helpful August 16, 2013
Rated 3.0 out of 5.0 by I bought it because I trust them I bought this and used it for two projects now. One Project was for driving bolts with a Socket to assemble a cover for my deck. I then drilled some holes in a concrete slab to place a shed. The Drill stopped working. The lights come on, the battery drives another drill so its not that. It just stopped. I also didnt like the fact the Battery didnt come with it and I found out the low profile batteries for my other Makita drill set will not fit it. Seemed kind of deceptive. I am replacing the drill at Home Depot tonight, I will see how the next one performs. August 6, 2013
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Excellent I've used this for Tapcons, cabinet builds and pre drilling hardwood and it performs as good as my corded hammer drill. May 13, 2014
