I'm looking for a corded drill with a removable chuck under which a screwdriver bit can be housed, allowing for easy transition from hole drilling to

screw driving. Which drills have that capacity? Thank you.

This drill works very well, is lightweight for a corded drill and has a good feel to it. I've had a corded Makita drill before and gave it away as I replaced it with a cordless drill, now it's time to go back to the corded version. I haven't had this drill very long but it feels like it will last a long time as my other Makita had. The only negative is that I wish they wouldn't paste the label on the case as they do, I didn't want it there and it took a bit of effort to remove.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from 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 from 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.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from 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.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from 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.
