I use this at work as my secondry drver mainly just to attach small joints and woodwork in general. Makita have always been a big name in the world of D.I.Y.ing tools and contimue to make tools that last and last and perform to fairly good standards.
These drivers are used as lightweight alternatives to the more expensive combination drills and if all you require is a cheapish drill for home usage or general small construction then this is the drill for you.
Unfortunately your not going to get any sort of real power out of the \'green\' makita range as its known as these are intentienly aimed at D.I.Y.ers, you do have enough to drill small planks and boards but you can forget about drilling anything harder as their simply is not enough torque or amp power to get you anywhere.
Bargain sets can be picked up for £100 or less including drill bits and all kinds of accessories, you cant really go wrong for that price aslong as you know the drills limits.
