Very powerful and reliable
This drill is very powerful and and can get the job done. The drill is pretty light weight and comes complete with a heavy duty travel case. This drill also comes with an extra battery and a charger. The battery has a long lasting life of about 5-7 hours per charge. When dead the battery does not take long to charge. The charger is well labelled and has different lights for if the battery is charging, broken, or completely charged. It is an all around great product at an incredible price.

Have 8 of these drills on my shop floor. Used every day for 3+ years before they needed replacing. Being able to purchase the drill only is nice, just one issue with that. (The White LXT cordless drill "batteries" (older version LXT) will not fit onto the green LXT cordless drill. They must be modified slightly. If you can look at the batteries side by side you will see a small section of the battery locking guides needs to be removed or notched, not sure why this was changed as I do not see any area for improvement) a pair of side cutters and a file and they will work great.

A Handy Little Drill!
This is a wonderful little drill. Easy to change bits and drill bits. The only thing I can find wrong with it is the batteries could last a little longer but with that said it isn't bad. This unit came with 2 batteries and the charger and I was never without power. All in all I would say the battery lasted for about 3-4 hours with on going work on my project. I swapped out the battery and kept going. I worked for the rest of the afternoon and didn't drain the second battery and the first one was charging and would have been ready to go before I drained the second one so I'm pretty impressed with this unit. I love that the newer Makita tools are coming with build in lights. As I get a little older, that extra light makes all the difference in seeing the heads of screws.

Be prepared to be impressed!! We have owned at least a dozen cordless drills over the years 6 volt on up. The two things they all had in common: they were all big and heavy. This little 18 V 2 speed Makita is small, lightweight and powerful! Size does matter especially when working off a ladder. This wonderful little gun even has a built in clip to hang it on a pants pocket. It comes with two chargers for rapid recharging and a built in LED light so you can see what you're doing, My husband is more than happy with this powerful little gun. We have always been impressed with Makita and highly recommend this product.
