Answer: 
Yes, there is a switch just above the trigger. It is a vertical switch. It's nice, because it doesn't simply change a gear setting to go in reverse, it actually reverses the brushes. What this means is you get full power and speed in reverse. This is especially nice when backing out screws.

Answer: 
Yes, it's powerful enough to drill a hole diameter of 5/16 in. in steel; however, it depends on the correct accessory. The recommended accessory would be the Makita 5/16 in. x 4-1/2 in. Steel Ultra-Fast Drill Bit.

Answer: 
A Hammer Drill is basically a drill that has concrete or block drilling ability, in addition to wood and steel materials. An Electric Drill only has the ability to drill into wood or steel materials with the appropriate accessories.

6 Amp 5/8 in. Corded Hammer Drill is rated 3.5 out of 5 by 54.
Rated 2 out of 5 by from Meh Good power but the teeth on the chuck broke off when i was tring to tighten it. Then when using the hammer drill function, first time using it ever, the vibration of the hammer loosened the chuck which then stripped the inside of the chuck as it spun around my concrete bit. i got through two 4" holes and the drill and is worthless now.

Rated 1 out of 5 by from poor quality The first drill lasted about 15 minutes before sparks started coming from the casing and the drill started to die slowly. Returned that one and got another new one. It did what I needed but the chuck kept loosening up and slipping on the drill bit. Very frustrating.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from 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.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from 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!
