Rated 1.0 out of 5.0 by Kieotee Battery Problems at start
I Bought the 3 piece set (drill, impact, and angle grinder), and returned the first set because the batteries failed charging them within the first 30 days (2 charges). returned it for a new set, and attempted to charge the uncharged battery in the set, and it failed immediately (within a day of purchase). All reviews, after going through this twice, point towards the chip malfunctioning in the battery, and the charger will disable a battery after three failed attempts, which is not known until after the fact.
Seems like a great deal, and Makita has a great reputation, however, I believe the multi-packs are refurbished and the batteries are just replaced cells that fail upon charging.

Rated 1.0 out of 5.0 by cpak007 Good tool set but battery is cost too much after one year
All of tool sets are good but problme is the battery, it contains chip set which caused early failure right after warranty and it costs $100 per battery.
Google it "makita battery issue" before you purchase it.

Affordable, Rugged tools. Quick charge is nice. Tough bag and you can easily fit all the tools in the bag no problem. Exactly what I needed.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by LeonH8080 Better than dewalt
The circular saw cuts as if it has a cord attached. Both drills are very powerful and the batteries last. I was a dewalt loyalist but not any more. The radio sounds as good as my Bose radio I have in the house. The only complaint I have is the flashlight isn't that bright and there is no tool included to change the grinder wheels.

This 7-Tool combo kit was worth every penny. Priced right, at $549, it allowed me to get rid of a couple AC powered tools (reciprocating and circular saws) as well as put a couple in my possession that I didn't have before. The radio was a nice added feature of this combo kit. The charger pumps electricity back into the 3.0 Amp batteries FAST! I can't wear down a battery faster than this charger can recharge a battery. It's amazing. The 18V power is nice for even the biggest jobs. I have been able to adjust the circular saw fast to make the cuts and it is lightweight enough not to be cumbersome while making a cut. The impact and hammer drills work as advertised. The tool bag has two pockets for each of the drills, as well as for the reciprocating saw and extra batteries. This is a nice organizational feature that I wasn't expecting. It also has a retractable handle and wheels. Usually the tools are piled on top of one another, and this makes access to any of them fast and easy. I hadn't had too much exposure to the Makita brand, but this combo kit has definitely persuaded me to look at them more often.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by jeff Great set !
This set comes with the most tools for the money and makita cordless tools have always served me well in the past. All the tools work as expected and the radio is a pretty good addition. I wish it charged the batteries instead of ran on them but it sounds pretty good, and its nice to have the batt option for when 110v is not available. Bought some generic batteries to go with it and they have also worked just fine at half the price.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by urcrazy1 Best set I have used.
I am a HVAC worker in new construction and this is the best set I have used. The price is great and it includes everything I need for work. I have used all the major brand and this has to be the best on the market.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Jamalot Makita 18 Volt 7 Tool Combo Rocks (literally)
Everything needed for the weekend warrior or the Journeyman Carpenter like me... And this Combo Rocks with the included Radio I love it. Batteries recharge really quick and last pretty long, The Portable Skilsaw has more than enough power to cut 2x4 for a Redwood Fence Repair i never even used my regular saw i love this Tool Set.
