Answer: 
3/4" is the maximum diameter hole it is rated to drill in concrete if the bit used has a half inch or smaller "reduced shank". This drill has a 1/2" chuck.

Answer: 
This refers to the "Chuck" size. A 3/4" drill will accept up to a 3/4" chuck or shaft on drill bits. A 1/2" will only accept up to 1/2" size shaft in a drill bit.

Answer: 
The size of the drill bit the chuck will accommodate. However, unless you use specially slotted SDS bits, the max mine will hold is 1/2" normal round shank bits. Most drill bits come in reduced sized shanks when they get too large to accommodate all drill chuck sizes though, so not really an issue.

Answer: 
Tim, this is another one of those specs that you have to watch closely. Normally, drills are rated by maximum chuck capacity (typically 1/2" for most compact hand drills). But in this case, especially with the 6.6 amp example, I am guessing that it refers to the maximum drill size to be used. If that's the case, its not really a useful spec since materials and bits can vary widely. Read the fine print if Read More

Read the fine print if there is any...a 3/4" drill in steel on a 6.6 amp drill would beat it up pretty bad unless it has some gear reductions; the 3/4" probably refers to masonry if it is a hammer drill.

Answer: 
The 3/4" on the HP2050 is referring to the recommended capacity of the diameter hole this tool can drill into concrete. The recommended largest diameter hole the HP2050 can drill into concrete is 3/4 inches.

What is the largest drill shank that will fit into the chuck?

This question is from 6.6 Amp 3/4 in. Corded Hammer Drill
Asked by
Pacific Palisades, CA

December 10, 2014
In answers to a previous question (about the meaning of the 3/4" chuck), it said this is the largest diameter HOLE that can be drilled in concrete. A drill-bit that can drill a 3/4" diam. hole might have a 1/2" diameter shank, so that it can fit in a 1/2" diam. chuck. I need a chuck that can accept shank-sizes over 1/2 inch, and preferably up to 3/4". Will this drill do it?

Answer: 
While it claims 3/4", unless you use special SDS bits with slotted sides, the max round shank bit it will hold is 1/2". However, this isn't really a limiting factor since most larger bits sold have reduced sized shanks to fit most drills.

Hi Rusticplanter,
This drill will accept any drill bit with a 3/4 inch shank. Some drill bits larger than 3/4 inch will have a 3/4 inch shank.

Answer: 
China - this unit has a "weak" motor for heavy duty drilling. This drill is probably fine for lite duty drilling into single studs or small holes in concrete. This drill cannot perform in drilling large diameter holes in wood though.

This question is old, but for future reference to anyone...it is a Japanese company and the drill is made in China. May not have always been the case, but the one I recently purchased in May 2015 states this.

Rated 3.3 out of 5 by 28 reviewers.
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Makita Corded Hammer Drill My second Makita Hammer Drill . . . The first was 20 years ago . . . It still works . . . Great Products ! September 20, 2016
Rated 1.0 out of 5.0 by Do Not Buy drilling 3/8 bit into concrete burned this drill out in less than a week. May 7, 2016
Rated 1.0 out of 5.0 by Garbage After 6 holes in new concrete, grease everywhere, over heated so fast and so bad it could not be touched. Started stalling almost instantly. Took it back and got a replacement. within 2 holes, same problems. The chuck is so soft, it stripped immediately. Rubbish. Do not by this Drill. March 21, 2016
Rated 1.0 out of 5.0 by Makita HP2050 Unreliable I can honestly say that I got less useful life out of this drill than any other drill I've owned. I did own it for several years, but only used it rarely. Now it has failed completely. It became erratic and quickly quick powering on at all. Worse even than an el-cheapo from Walmart. November 4, 2015
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Great Drill & Great Price While I have only owned this drill for a week, it seems to be of great quality. The casing is made of solid plastic in the handle area, and solid steel in the gear area. The chuck system seems very solid and durable. I bought it of of several needs in the past and not having a hammer drill. What prompted me to buy it was the installation of my family's above ground tornado shelter. I used a carbide tipped blade to drill 12 holes into my 6" garage slab and it went through it like butter.The only complaint is that the carry case is cheaply made. However, given the quality of the drill and low price (my personal opinion), they tried to save money to keep the price low. No bigs. May 17, 2015
Rated 2.0 out of 5.0 by OK for a couple of months This drill was bought on the basis of customer reviews. I used it to drill into concrete with a 5/16" bit to a depth of 1 3/4". Managed to complete the project fairly easily. Today, moved to the second room for a similar project and after one hole, the drill literally fell apart. Of course I'm over the 90 days and I need to complete a project. I guess if it's made in China I should expect it to fail within 4 months. June 30, 2015
Rated 1.0 out of 5.0 by Feels like a great drill, but will drill large holes in wood w/o burning up This Makita drill feels great, but when I tried to drill through a wood stud for piping, the motor burned up & struggled to drill prior to that. July 28, 2015
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Best drill I've owned thus far!! Bought this today at the local HD, to finish installing a dryer vent before my new dryer arrived today. Along with new masonry bits, this Makita 6.6 amp drill made short work of drilling through the tough red brick exterior of the house for the vent. I only wish I had bought this 20 years ago; I'm ready to tackle more drilling around the house now! As an aside, I've seen contractors using the Makita brand drills; having previously owned a B&D drill that oozed oil the entire time I've had it, I wasn't too interested in paying $99 today for a questionable hammer drill by the Yellow-brand B&D -owned company.
