Rated 4.4 out of 5 by 16 reviewers.
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by AMAZING I've work in construction for 7 year and have had plenty of drivers. Makita makes the BEST tools, better than dewalt, porter cable, Hitachi, Bosch, etc. impacts don't really get tested until they go throughout construction and a lot framing, this holds up to ever thing February 26, 2015
Rated 1.0 out of 5.0 by Defective battery bought this for my husband brand new for Christmas and the battery it came with was defective. December 30, 2014
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Great Driver / held up well Bought this driver as a combu set with drill, 2 batteries and charger for 199. Built a 10 by 24 shed entirely with these 2 tools. They held up well. Had to charge every 1.5 hrs but that was under constant use ( or nearly) The batteries charged in 30 mins and ran strong again! The fan in the charger to keep the battery cool is a neat idea. The impact driver was consistent and strong. I love makita tools and had bought cheaper cordless drills the last 2, but glad to have makitas back.. they just feel better! November 26, 2014
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Very Reliable We really needed extra batteries, but dollar for dollar, this was an excellent value. To get the batteries I needed, AND get another driver, was quite the bonus! June 24, 2014
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Makita Impact I used these Makita cordless impacts when I was a custom cabinet maker. I've always wanted to get one for personal use and finally did. Now that I have it I will never be without one. Well built, lightweight, compact and excels at driving larger hard to drive screws but gentle enough not to snap smaller screws. October 21, 2014
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Great drill! We use this drill at work, and I will say I am without a doubt buying one for home. The impact part of it helps, a lot. Reduces the amount of stripping, and reduces the chance of slipping off the head of the bolt/screw/whatever. I also prefer the hex quick attach/detach mechanism on this over, the typical drill nunchuk/hand tighten fasteners. This is a much quicker change between drill bits, sockets, Phillips, etc, not to mention a hex on hex grip holds much better then a circle on circle grip. That and you have to tighten those other ones like crazy, killing your hands. My work has the version of this that comes with the light. Honestly I think the light is overrated. I think it is 50$ more for just the light. For one the light uses a battery, so the light itself is a couple pounds. At my work we like to keep one battery on the charger and one on the drill. So this means switching between power to the drill, to the light, and back to the drill. This exchange absorbs precious time. Even then, the light isn't that great. I can't say for sure but it seems to be between 100-200 lumen. Fairly bright, but not much. You can buy a much smaller, lighter light that even fits into a light pouch, for 30$, and for that price you can easily get one that is 500 lumens or more. Much brighter. The light that the other set comes with has a hand strap, which is nice in theory, but it's far too elastic for how heavy it is. Meaning it's more of a wrist strap to prevent it from falling off, not something that gives it a good grip to your hand. The hard case this comes in is great! I mean aside from the fact that it all fits in it and is good during shipping (if ordered online) we keep it in this between jobs. I install/repair garage doors so we drive job to job. We always keep it in the case when not in use cause then we know where all of the parts are, it is in a water resistant case (I know it kept dry from snow, but not sure how it would do submerged in actual water), and it's easier carrying it from the truck to the garage, then carrying 4+ separate items. This also has a very sturdy and reliable clip on the side, easy to clip onto the metal measuring tape mounts (on work belts) or on the thin part of a ladder, etc. However I recommend getting a drill holster. Much faster and easier to attach/detach then using the measuring tape clip, and I enjoy having my drill on me whenever I'm not using it. This helps me avoid those "where did I put it?" moments, as well as the "I'm on the ground and need it but it's at the top of that ladder" or visa versa moments. The weight to this thing is very nice. With all the other stuff on our work belts, can easily be carrying 20+ pounds on us at a time. The drill being so light weight is a very good thing. In some cases we carry more hardware/tools on us, so we are pushing 30 pounds. In the winter we have so many layers of clothing, coats, etc, that with the drill, clothing, hardware, tools, and work belt we can have 50 pounds on us. At that point, literally every pound counts. Last but not least is the charger. This is a great charger. Especially in the cold winter weather when batteries die faster, we HAVE to keep one on the charger at all times, cause we never know when the other one will run out. This charger gives a loud beep indicator. Loud enough for us to hear it even 40 feet away in the garage, while using grinders, saws, or the drill itself. Loud enough for us to hear it, but by no means deafening. It uses the standard 2-prong plug, no grounding. We don't mind this since a lot of garage outlets we run into don't have grounded outlets, or majority of their outlets have no power, so a grounding plug would just get in the way. My work probably runs this drill for about 30-70 minutes at each job site (bolts/nuts, drilling, etc) and we have yet to completely dry a battery. For more demanding purposes such as construction, carpentry, building a deck, and other extensive jobs, you might need more then two batteries, but otherwise I think two is fine. To be honest I haven't tried many other brands around this price range. I myself have a Ryobi right angle drill, which was cheaper, but after about 3000 screws+3000 pre drilled holes for my deck, it died. The drill itself. I bought a second one, and 4 batteries have died (completely died, won't hold a charge). So yeah you can go with a cheaper brand, but it won't last. This drill is built to last. Yes you could buy a higher end 500$ dewalt or something, and yes that will last longer, but i think for 90% of jobs/projects/applications, this is the best drill set for the money. December 23, 2013
Rated 1.0 out of 5.0 by Poor Battery Design - Short Life The tool itself provides plenty of torque, is comfortable and easy to use and maintain. The batteries, on the other hand, are HORRIBLE. They will discharge from the first available cell and then move to the remaining cells. This is OK, except the battery control chip in the battery doesn't switch to the next available cell quickly enough and the first cell is completely discharged. The chip then sees the first cell as faulty and locks the entire battery. It can't be unlocked. I even had one of the computer scientists I work with look at the chip and tell me my battery was now just a brick. Removing the chip would be of no use either because it monitors the cells and switches between them as necessary. I only used my driver for light household projects for a year when one of the batteries failed. Now I'm looking at my second Makita-battery-shaped doorstopper. PLEASE DON"T WASTE YOUR MONEY. I'm looking into different brands now, but will check out their battery schematics before I buy again. September 19, 2014
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by strong and dependable the impact came with its own case and instructions. Very high quality September 30, 2014
