Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by senate Excellent tools
Not sure why Dewalt and Milwaukee get all the press when it comes to cordless power tools because these guys are easily just as good.. I owned a Milwaukee 18v and the batteries were dead within a year. My neighbor is a cabinet maker/installer and he swears by Makita. After watching him iinstall my cabinets with their tools I was sold. I have seen the Dewalt tools in action as my buddy had their set when we demo'd my kitchen and I was impressed, but this Makita set really does the job in terms of rapid charge time and length of charge.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by TurqoiseBeast Makita... say no more
I went down last week and picked up the chorded 4 1/2 inch angle grinder with 5/8 hammer drill. I was so impressed with the performance I ran out and bought this 4 piece lxt combo. I am very impressed, satisfied, and happy with the money spent. I asked both tool department guys at Home Depot for their unbiased opinion comparing Makita, Dewalt, and Milwaukee. The result is Makita hands down. They told me returns due to poor craftsmanship were nonexistent. But with Milwaukee or Dewalt you either get a good one or a bad one. This is a killer deal the impact driver is a $269 tool by itself. The super rugged bag is better than the $50 giant husky bag. even though it isn't the one pictured, which was disappointing, I knew that if they replaced it then it was probably due to the old bag not holding up to their standards. This is a killer deal you buy the combo and basically get the sawzall, bag, and light for $30. Plus the box doesn't say it but you get TWO Li-ion batteries wrapped up in all the goodies. I will never buy anything but a Makita... my only complaint was that they didn't include a sticker for me to put on the back of my truck!!!

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by bmac1974 Best cordless tools i've ever owned
This Makita 18V Lithium Ion set is by far the best tool purchase I have ever made. I owned the Dewalt XRP 18V combo kit prior and Makita has put it to shame. The tools are lighter, just as durable, but much easier to weild. Ive used the tools in building homes, theatrical sets, home improvement, cutting branches off of trees and so much more.
One of my favorite features on the drills are the LED lights. It has been invaluable when working in darker spaces.
I can't live without my Makita combo set.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by shark73 Makita Impact Drill Driver
By far the best drill I have ever used, drives 6 inch screws or lags with no problems. Fast charge. I would recomend this item to any contractor or your average handyman/homeowner. Just a truely great drill. I've had mine for about 2 years now and the batteries last. Very light weight.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by DRDH11 Great combination package for an Electrical Contractor
This combo kit includes everything a small electrical contractor would nees for most any electrical installation. We specialize in controls and generally are running 3/4 and 1" EMT and outdoors usually rigid conduit and this kit has it all covered. From crawling around in attics with the flashlight to cutting conduit on the run. Thanks Makita for bringing my company back to a more productive level by using your products.
