Great Drill but doesn't work as good now
Purchased this drill in a drill/impact combo kit sold at home depot worked great for 3 years and, just recently I believe the gear box is going out. It will pop out of 2nd gear under heavy load (hole saw, paint mixer) and will grind until I shift it to first then back to 2nd and start again and it will only work for a little bit then back to shifting. It has a very strong motor and has a very good form fit to the hand and has phenomenal efficiency, a 4.0AH battery under moderate to heavy use can last me up to 45 minutes and sometimes an hour. I highly recommend this to those trying to build a power tool collection or those novice tradesmen that need a good solid reliable drill and already have a makita equipment lineup.
