Rated 1.0 out of 5.0 by Jokersmith 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.

Pretty nice tool from reputable manufacture for small money. Just what I needed for various projects when battery operated drills aren't enough. My first project for this power drill was holes in the quartz. It worked great. My only complain is that trigger tends to stuck causing motor to rotate very slowly. I wonder if anyone else encountered that problem? It is not a deal breaker for me, but obviously the tool design or assembly is not flawless.
I own it too short to speak about longevity of this drill but I trust Makita.

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 5.0 out of 5.0 by BobR Makita 5/8 Hammer Drill
I bought this drill at the local store. I had just came across two jobs that needed it:
1. because I needed a very powerful cord drill
2. I needed a drill larger than the standard 1/2" chuck.
Other than the heavy duty commercial drills I've owned and used, this is one of the best hand drills that I used so far. The price is right and the the brand too.
Only time will tell about the durability.

Rated 3.0 out of 5.0 by Handyhomeowner Not bad for the money.
I have owned this tool since 2010. It is good for small home projects. I loved it for the hammer drill capability. I would not buy if I needed this on a daily or weekly basis. It won't take the beating. I noticed that it started to smell electrical when I used it over the summer to mix stucco. I just fried the brushes in it mixing a small amount of concrete. I will buy another Makita but will be buying a better version.
