A Quality product by Makita
Used daily on site this has never failed,was a replacement for a previous Makita 18v cordless. lasts easily twice as long as other combi's, and three times longer than my last makita, by that i mean battery life. And because it is 18v you have the power ability to use it as a real drill or when you come to unscrew a particulary tight screw it doesn't do that annoying thing of just making a noise but not turning..

The job light is superb LED technology is undoubtdly getting much better because it really does light up the target area. Allowing you to dispose of the miners lamp approach.

The two way directional trigger is as usual found either side of the trigger finger and the speed selection is near the chuck of the drill. i always carry this and a makita Hammer drill..but i find this does most jobs.. unsure as to the colour ie. is not the usual livery for Makita, that is because it is an anniversary edition.. however everything else is how you would expect a makita to be.

It does have limitations however for example i sai i use this in conjunction with a mak hammer drill that is simply becuase stone and concrete are problems for this unit, youd be there all day if you wanted to drill through stone with any cordless and this is no different, and the other annoying tendancy with cordlesses, again which this suffers from is the bit slipping and comming wedged in what you are drilling.. frustrating and a quick way of burning your fingers... so really my main use for the unit is a cordless screwdriver and as that it is faultless..

So overall a good package as long as you don't expect it to replace your powered drill.. if you expect heavy masonary use get a hammer drill or better still a rotary, if you do want a great functional sgrewdriver, wood boring, sheet metal drill then look no further.
