About This Product

Makita's 7.2-Volt Lithium-Ion Cordless Driver-Drill Kit with Auto-Stop Clutch delivers convenience and precision drilling and driving power to torque-specific assembly applications. The DF012DSE combines the ultra-compact design of a cordless screwdriver with 21 clutch settings and an auto-stop clutch for extra fastening control. The DF012DSE is powered by a Makita-built motor that delivers 71 in. lbs. of Max Torque in drilling mode. The 2-speed gear selection offers 200 RPM and 650 RPM for low or high speed applications. The 21 clutch settings offer a range of fastening torque, from 32 in. lbs. in clutch setting #1 to 50 in. lbs. in #21. For added precision and control, the auto-stop clutch shuts off the tool when the clutch disengages and helps prevent over-driving on the fastener. For extra versatility, the tool will operate in straight or pistol grip positions.

                A:  No, it is not variable speed. It has two speeds; low speed has more torque than the high speed. Think of it as low speed to drive screws with more control and high speed to drill holes.

                  The Makita DF012DSE driver is the perfect tool for lower torque screw driving applications such as installing electrical devices (switches, receptacles, etc.) and cabinet hardware. The compact size and shape fit easily in a tool pouch and it greatly speeds up assembly. The clutch also prevents stripping small screws. I have noticed in some reviews that people are using this for things like driving deck screws. This tool was not designed for applications like that and while it may be able to do this, I suspect it would not have a long happy life if it were used for this frequently. I have many Makita tools and they all have consistently high quality and high performance.

                  First off, product is great. Does exactly as you would intend, even able to drill through several layers of sheet metal with self tapping screws. Upgraded from a Hitachi screwdriver of similar style. I would not recommend you purchase this through Home Depot however. The shipping times you see are not accurate and shipping to store is even more ill advised.

                  The Quality is there but the execution is lacking.
                  This electric scewdriver/light drill doesn't feel cheap, but Makita's poor choice in features may not hit the mark for most. Pros Love the weight, size, and ability to angle from gun form to inline. The clutch setting is a nice feature for delicate fastener applications. The led is bright. The power is decent for light to medium applications. Cons What became a deal breaker over the course of a couple weeks in trial was the odd choice in features and lack of some others, that led me to return this tool within its 30 day guarantee for its impact tool brother model. The clutch is a feature often missed in this field of light duy tools, but without a variable speed button, i found myself taking longer to achieve some of the most mundane tasks of my job. While i could get by with the clutch and 2 speed control alone, i found myself adjusting the clutch and speed settings more than i wanted, due to scenarios where im working in tight spaces and so my screw goes in at a slight angle where the clutch saves me from stripping it, however due to limited 2 speed setting, when i only want to back the screw out a few threads to realign, i accidentally backed the whole scew out and sometimes loose control and drop the screw (at max speed setting cause who wants to operate a power tool at 200rpm). Now this can be fixed by then setting speed to #1 setting and then proceed to only tap the trigger button, however this extra button manipulation was just adding more frustration than comfort to an easy task. Conclusion For more precise control i would gear towards the impact model instead. The lack of a variable speed feature was causing too much button manipulation for what could more easily be done by its impact model. Unless you don't care to master all that power and speed into one switch, then play it safe with this clutch option. Note that this tool is for light to mediumish fastener applications, can't help but roll my eyes when people buy this or the competitive dewalt gyro scewdriver/drill option to put a deck together. You've been warned.

                  My hobby is radio control 10th scale cars. I’m constantly taking them apart and rebuilding them, not only to keep them up, but fixing them after breaking something. With 100 screws plus, the Makita mini hex driver is an excellent tool!!

                  Little driver big muscle
                  The Makita performs better than the competition. Better torc settings, RPM, and built-in light.
