Rated 5.0 out of 5.0Â by Boston Makita Combo set
Makita drills have been my favorite since I bought my first one 30 years ago. This new set does not disappoint, light weight, torque to spare, comfortable grip, battery run time is outstanding. Was a little leery about it being compact size but size does not matter in this case. The smaller size has let it do jobs that may have been to tight for a traditional full size drill. In the start process of a whole house rehab, used it everyday, literally, has not failed to do anything I ask of it. By the way, this was a fathers day gift from my adult daughter, Michelle, thanks again.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0Â by boondock Just a heads up keep an eye out for the new model
The picture of the impact drill shows the new version (LXDT04CW), while the specifications states that it includes the old, now discontinued version (BTD142HW). I was confused by this and called Makita and they told me that the impact drill in the kit depends on if the store you buy it from sold out of all the discontinued impact combo kits because they don't ship the new ones to stores until they sell out of the discontinued model (without lowering its price or changing the model number of the combo kit). The box does not state that model number of the impact drill inside it, but you can tell which is inside it by looking at the max torque. The new version is 1420 in/lbs while the discontinued model was 1280 in/lbs. So if you care whether or not you get the new impact vs the older discontinued model, make sure to check the box.

Have used this set everyday for three years. Just got another set for my house. You can't go wrong with these, for homeowners or professionals. The impact has no problem with 8" truss lock bolts into cedar brackets. They are also very durable. Can't count the Times these have fallen. The impact fell 26 feet from the scaffold to the subfloor, no problem. I really can't say enough about this product. Buy these

I purchased this on sale 2 years ago. I use it almost everyday: some days only for a few minutes, and some days all day long. We have built several handi-cap ramps containing hundreds of screws. You can't go wrong with this set.
I recommend you purchase the large (additional) battery when you purchase the drill. The batteries that come with this set are great, but I can build almost a whole deck with a full change on the large battery.
I wouldn't hesitate to purchase another one of these sets if anything ever happens to the one I own.

This drill has good torque â lots of drilling and driving power in a more lightweight tool than the Ni-Cad drill I replaced. It's a nice bonus to get the impact driver as part of the kit. I thought I would have preferred a hard case, but the soft-sided case is well-made, seems durable, and has lots of nice built-in storage pockets for drill and screwdriver bits.
