Rated 4.3 out of 5 by 20 reviewers.
Rated 5 out of 5 by 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! June 15, 2014
Rated 1 out of 5 Don't waste your time and money!!!!! I was looking for a drill to use at work. I'm a metal fabricator so I was looking for a drill that can perform long hours and work well with steel and stainless. I purchased 2 extra battery along with the two it came with and within three months after purchase all four battery's burned out.. Sent in a warranty for the battery's and makita refuses to send me new battery's because I don't have the recipes. They claim I could have easily got my hands on one and turned it in without a purchase... Awful experience.. Taking my losses and buy a ridged which are AWSOME!! December 9, 2014
Rated 4 out of 5 by Nice drill This drill is very nice, the only objection I have for this one and any others is that the batteries tend to die after a few years and it is cheeper to buy a new drill than to replace the batteries. August 12, 2014
Rated 5 out of 5 by 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! June 21, 2014
Rated 2 out of 5 by Excellent Drill, Terrible batteries The drill itself might be the best one I have ever owned, but the batteries are garbage. I don't use the drill professionally but i do use it alot. As a computer technician I am also intimately familiar with how lithium ion batteries work and how to keep them alive. Even with my "harry homeowner" level of usage I have killed one battery per year since my first one of these about 3 years ago. Of the 3 dead batteries all of them lasted past the 90 day warranty but none of them made it to 6 months. Since the cost of two batteries is more than buying a new drill that comes with 2 batteries i have now gone thru 3 drill combos. My old Makita (NiCd) has been in use for over 20 years and the batteries last about 5. After 20+ years of Makita loyalty my next drill will be another brand July 1, 2014
