            Beware of sneaky open box
            We all assume we're buying a new unopened product -- Home Depot deceived me this time, box was clearly opened then taped shut. This was the wrong way for them to sell returned product with unknown condition of batteries especially. I immediately returned it to nearest store for full refund. Damage to Home Depot brand from this, Trust.

            In store these are $60
            Online they're $120. Same package. Math doesn't add up here.

              Hard to argue with!
              I have to be honest... I love this drill. It's perfect for my general carpentry needs. Pocket holes, furniture assembly, you name it. The clutch is smooth and precise. The chuck locks so you don't need to grip it and hit the trigger to tighten the bit, you just have to grab it and twist. Having two speeds is plenty for me. When I need that high torque, or when speed is key, I'm set! Hard to say no to this price point, especially when it's on special at $99. Don't buy into the hype that you always need the more expensive option. It's brushless, comes with a charger, and a 3aH battery, what else do you need? She pairs beautifully with the impact driver, and together, create an unbeatable duo for the majority of professional applications. Get on this platform! This is the perfect starting point!

                This thing is great though I've had the basic 18 volt drill for years and didn't kill it but I needed a battery and this was just a bonus.

                The Makita XFD131 is great entry-level Brushless drill kit with the high-quality and durability of the Makita brand. Unless you study the entire line of drills and analyze the specs, you may not realize that this kit is a better value than most. It's lightweight, compact size, durable high-capacity Li-ion battery, and ergonomic design make this an excellent kit. However, there are a few things you need to know about; otherwise, you might be disappointed. The drill feels great in your hand. It has a perfect balance, fits into tight spaces, and it's not too heavy, You'll see this tool promoted heavily on Amazon and at Home Depot, and it's perpetually "On Sale" in many stores, That's because it's designed to draw in new customers by meeting the all-important $100.00 price point while still providing exceptional performance. To achieve the price, the XFD131 kit uses a lower-rated motor (but still high quality brushless), includes a storage bag instead of a hard case, and comes with a slow charger. Other more expensive units will have more frills, such as multiple LED lights and features such a hammer capability. Nevertheless, this tool has all the right standard features, and the motor is coupled to a 2-speed transmission that delivers 440 in.lbs of torque, which should be more than enough for most applications. Considering the value of the kit, another way to think about it is like this: the kit comes with a high-quality $50.00 LXT 3ah battery (compatible across the entire line of tools), a $25.00 charger, and a $10.00 tool bag. So, for only $14 more, you're also getting the highly reliable ($70) XFD13 2-speed drill with brushless motor, which makes this kit quite a good value. If you think you'll need more power or if you desire the fast charger, then check out other kits such as the XFD12 series, priced $50-$90 higher (depending on battery size). Otherwise, grab this kit and enjoy the high quality and durability of Makita at a value price.

                  DO NOT BE FOOLED This XFD131 kit (internet # 305 926 995) is a "promotional" grade kit. This looks similar to XFD061 (internet # 301 444 915), but has over 20% less torque. This tool might be acceptable for the occasional home user, but serious users should make a side by side comparison. Amongst other differences, notice the different chucks. The charger supplied in this kit is a basic charger that slow charges (compared to "RC" chargers) supplied in the better quality kits. Note : At $99 I kept this kit. It comes with a BL1830B battery. The kit is almost as cheap as a bare battery

                    Great drill
                    I bought this drill for my electrician’s tool bag. Its compact and light weight. It fits perfectly fine. The torque is perfect for fast screwing and small hole drilling. I love the belt clip! I have other drills for heavier duty and this Makita is the best deal for the price. The perfect drill for light duty fast screwing. I like the brushless design never had one. I also love the battery life indicator
