Questions & Answers

Is this drill reversable???

Asked by: thomas
Yes, it has a reversing switch to change the direction of rotation (clockwise and counterclockwise rotation).

Is it powerful enough to drill through steel? 3/8" thick steel. 5/16" hole.

Asked by: Thanks
Yes, it would, although it might take awhile. I would use good quality drill bit and lubricate the drill bit with oil.

what is a difference electric drill and electric hammer drill?

Asked by: Nick
In a regular drill, the drill bit only rotates. In hammer drill the drill bit rotate and also moves a little bit back and forth which is very useful when drilling holes in a concrete. Makes it much easier and faster.

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!

Rated 4 out of 5 by from I love it, although not 100% as advertised. Made in USA! I absolutely love this drill. Admittedly, I used it on one occasion, to drill a 1/2" diameter hole through a solid brick wall, and then to drill multiple (maybe 8 or 9) 3/8" diameter pilot holes for masonry screws. With new bits, the drill cut through the wall in 10 seconds or less. This drill is VERY powerful for the money. It's 6 amps. To put that in perspective, I have a Skil hammer drill that I got as a hand-me-down from my grandfather. The thing is a workhorse, and it's only 3.6 amps. I also have a DeWalt that is significantly outpowered by this drill. It looks, feels, and even sounds like a high quality, professional grade tool. The cord is thick and has plenty of length, although plan on using an extension cord if you're not five feet from an outlet. The extra handle is a nice feature and provides some much-needed extra leverage. I spent a little extra for a Makita because they are one of the only (if not the only) power tool company that still at least assembles their tools here in the USA. I like supporting our economy when I can, and I thank Makita for making that possible. With my unfailing patriotism, I really want to like this tool, so I may be a little biased. It would not be fair, however, for me to not point out a couple of flaws. First of all, the chuck on my drill is NOT 5/8", it is 1/2". That's not a HUGE concern, because I don't own any bits that are larger than a half inch at the base anyway. Even my 1 inch diameter masonry bit can be used in a half inch chuck. Also, it is a keyed chuck (which I preferred in this instance), but I can see how the key would be easy to round off. Tighten with caution. Thirdly, there may come as no surprise, but there is no brake on this drill, so you may want to reconsider if you find yourself about to use it on projects that require any level of delicacy. Finally, this drill does not come with a case. Minor setback, but a setback nonetheless. These downsides for me are minor and I hesitated to even take away one star. When I purchased this drill, I was looking for a corded (so I don't have to deal with charging batteries), keyed-chuck (no loose bits), American-made, semi-professional grade hammer drill. I got exactly what I wanted.

Rated 3 out of 5 by from Awful chuck and chuck key I loved this drill when I first got it. Tons of power, worked well the first day I had it. The chuck and chuck key started getting rounded to the point that it was almost unusable after a month. Wound up returning it
Date published: 2013-07-13
Rated 4 out of 5 by from OK for the homeowner It did not come close to the Milwaukie ( sorry about the spelling) that my wife got in the divorce but it did OK for small jobs. Had a hard time getting the bit to stay secured in the chuck. Had to keep getting out the key and tightening up the chuck. If you get it on sale and only need a hammer drill once in a while, it will work for you. If you need to drill into "old" concrete that has cured for 10+ years then you may have a problem. And yes, in case you did not know, concrete continues to cure for many years. Hope this helps.
