Rated 5 out of 5 by Great Purchase! This drill is great because you don't have to worry about charging it; just plug it in and go. It is powerful and does what it's supposed to do. September 2, 2014
Rated 5 out of 5 by Fantastic buy! After searching the website for the characteristics I was looking for in an electric drill, this drill surpassed them all. It is lightweight; easy to handle; very quiet and has lots of power. It is everything you could ask for in an electric drill. And, as if this isn't enough, it is manufactured in the USA!

Rated 5 out of 5 by Love my Makita I have always wanted a Makita and finally I got one for my birthday. Love that this doesn't need a key to change the bits. It is not too heavy and I know it will last for a long time. October 16, 2011
Rated 5 out of 5 by Can't go wrong with Makita I purchased this drill to replace my first drill, a Makita that I bought in 1988. It is a straight-forward, no frills drill. I like the upgrade from the old fashioned wrench-type to the new hand tightening chuck. July 14, 2009
Rated 5 out of 5 by good sturdy case. Nice lightweight drill. Great for this money. Case is great option. December 24, 2013
