Rated 3.5 out of 5 by 40 reviewers.
Rated 1.0 out of 5.0 by Piece of Junk I bought one and on the first hole I tried driling it burned up the motor, I was drilling through 1/2 in steel. I also noticed that I had a very hard time getting the chuck to tighten. I took it back and they replaced it. I have had the new one for about three months and although it hasnt burned up yet I have a very hard time getting the chuck to tighten. It comes loose basically every time I try drilling anything. Last week I went and bought the Milwalkee and for only $20 more then the Makita it is much better, February 21, 2015
Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by OK for the homeowner It did not come close to the Milwaukie ( sorry about the spelling) that my wife got in the divorce but it did OK for small jobs. Had a hard time getting the bit to stay secured in the chuck. Had to keep getting out the key and tightening up the chuck. If you get it on sale and only need a hammer drill once in a while, it will work for you. If you need to drill into "old" concrete that has cured for 10+ years then you may have a problem. And yes, in case you did not know, concrete continues to cure for many years. Hope this helps. September 2, 2014
Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by Decent Drill / hammer drill I used this Makita 5/8 Hammer Drill too anchor bolt a dog pen to a concrete slab. Had no problems with 1/2 holes. The nice thing about this drill is it has a dual mode. Nice power to handle middle of the road work. The cost is reasonable for what you get. If your doing a lot of work with concrete. Be sure to clean out the concrete dust, with a burst of air pressure. It will last much longer if you do. It's not a Hilti but for around the house it's a nice tool. December 9, 2010
Rated 3.0 out of 5.0 by Awful chuck and chuck key I loved this drill when I first got it. Tons of power, worked well the first day I had it. The chuck and chuck key started getting rounded to the point that it was almost unusable after a month. Wound up returning it July 13, 2013
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Made in The USA! Great Value! I had bought a larger "Red" hammer drill, thinking it's bigger motor (in Amps) meant more power and better performance, and I was wrong. I was really surprised to see that the Makita was made (at least assembled) in America. For a small, fairly lightweight drill, it packs quite a bit of power. I love the keyed chuck, because it grips bits much tighter. The 360-degree rotatable handle and depth rod come in handy for doing multiple anchors. Sure beats taping my hammer bits. I also love that the forward/reverse switch actually moves the brushes, as opposed to just changing a gear setting. This means you get full power in reverse. One of the other reviewers said the tool wasn't as advertised, because it's a 1/2" chuck, not a 5/8". When dealing with hammer drills, or larger rotary hammers, the "size" refers to capacity (hole size), not chuck size. What that means is this has about 25% larger drilling capacity vs. a 1/2" hammer drill. Bottom line, this will not twist your arm off with power, but it has way more than enough power. When a smaller motor can drill a larger hole (as compared to the red or yellow hammer drills that cost $99 or more), that goes to show you that the tool itself is stronger and better-built. It doesn't have to rely on a bigger motor to get the job done. I recommend this drill to anyone I know who is looking for a basic electric drill, even if they don't think they need a hammer. It weighs less than the 3/8" drills on the market, performs better, and gives the added benefit of being able to drill into concrete/brick/block! September 19, 2012
