Customer Reviews

18-Volt Lithium-Ion 1/2 in. Cordless Compact Drill Kit is rated 4.5 out of 5 by 64.
Rated 5 out of 5 by from Good product Bought this for my son-in-law as a Christmas gift. I knew of the quality as I had used one like it before. He is thrilled with it. My only issue with the purchase is the fact that Home Depot shipped it in the carrying case with no protection. It got scuffed up during shipping. Carrying cases for power tools get that way. But brand new gifts should NEVER arrive that way. C'mon man, can't afford a box?

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great little drill I bought this drill 2 years ago and used it hard since. It is very light weight and has enough power for most uses. This week it final gave up and burned up the clutch, due to me as I abuse everything. I have dropped it off a roof a few times, used it in rain storms and after I replace the clutch it will keep going. Excellent little drill!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Last drill you'll ever buy I've had this drill for about two years and have yet to be disappointed. I am a telecom installer and use the drill primarily with hole saws and installing drywall anchors. I've had the drill fall off a two-story roof and a bumper driving down the street with hardly a scratch. I'm guessing that it must be reinforced with adamantium. The only bothersome things about this drill are a lack of a built-in bubble level and a charge indicator on the batteries. I would definitely purchase again if somehow I ever had to.

Rated 3 out of 5 by from Premature Battery Failure You may want to think twice before buying this kit. After very limited use, and shortly after the warranty expired, one of the two batteries died. I'm seeing numerous instances of this in the reviews, so I'd think that the company would initiate a recall. Not good for Makita's otherwise pretty good reputation.

Rated 1 out of 5 by from Great drill. Bad battreries. Drill worked as expected. I have owned Makita products for years in fact my first cordless was a Makita 9.6 v and lasted us about 10 years I was impressed. Now with lithium ion being the new all that battery I was excited to get a new Makita. It worked great the first year then just after 1 year one battery wouldnt charge so I went to Home Depot sorry out of warranty they told me. A new battery is 84.99 however a promo kit drill and one battery was 99.99 so I bought that. Now a little over a year later both batteries don't charge. Google it a big problem but Makita won't do a thing. By by Makita hello Rigid lifetime battery warranty.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Awesome Drill I have had 3 different drills and this one is by far the best! Very strong and the battery lasts forever. Couldn't be happier. I especially like the LED light that turns on every time the trigger is pulled. All around outstanding drill!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Best Yet! This my 3rd battery driven drill and 1st l-ion version. My usage is very heavy, interspersed with long standby time. These l-ion batteries are amazing- I never fail to get immediate long use, even after long standby and then finally when needed, approximately 20 min recharge time. I will never buy another nicad battery tool! The drill is a, well balanced, reasonably light, workhorse enhanced by the led light. The only possible improvement would be a built in level. I was so impressed with this drill, I bought the companion driver, which uses the same set of batteries. In hindsight, the driver is seldom needed. The drill and companion l-ion batteries do it all- highly recommended!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from BEST DRILL I'VE EVER USED!! This drill was a life savior. We were installing drywall and for some reason every drill we used woult not work. The screw wouldn't go through the wood so we had to pre drill started pre drilling, which was taking for ever, but we borrowed our friends Makita and what could have taken us over a week took us a weekend. My husband loved it and that same weekend we bought our own. It is light and easy to use that I was even able to use it. I recommend it without a doubt.
