Long Battery Life

Alan Baldwin Jr., Amazon
11 September 2014
  • Summary: I am currently using this drill to build a deck. The battery life is impressive. I thought the light on the drill was nothing more than a gimmick but after working outside on a few late nights it really came in handy.

ron, Amazon
11 September 2014
  • Summary: I did not purchase this from amazon although my Makita purchase will be. My employer bought 6 of these sets in 2010 and I have personally been using them since 2011. Of those 6 kits 4 of been stolen from past employees or left at job sites and 2 are still being used and abused.

Hammer Drill?

M. Boswell, Amazon
11 September 2014
  • Summary: The BDF451 is NOT a hammer drill... Amazon is using the specs for the BHP451 which is in fact a hammer drill.

Lightweight, NOT a "Hammerdrill", Really paying for lithium.

Been There "BeenThere", Amazon
11 September 2014
  • Summary: I have used Craftsman, Ryobi, DeWalt and Makita from 7-18 volts. Makita has again produced a tough, handy design. But somehow the Amazon product description slipped on the features. Makita specs for the BDF451 show NO hammer on this drill.

Good overall, a couple of points to note

WG, Amazon
11 September 2014
  • Summary: First, let me say that, overall, I like this drill (although I haven't used it that much yet). It's fast, runs long on one charge, and is comfortable. I also really like the chuck - you can tighten and loosen it with one hand without a key and without running the drill. This is very convenient.

Possibly the best drill-driver in the universe!!!!

NuK, Amazon
26 August 2014
  • Summary: Unfortunately, from what I can tell, this model driver-drill has been discontinued. I consider this to be one of Makita's BEST driver-drills ever!! Almost all of my power tools are Makita, and on the rare occasion I have veered from the Makita name, I have always regretted it.

Built Well and has Lasted a Long Time

Richard Kelly, Amazon
30 June 2013
  • Summary: I'm going back through all of my Amazon purchases beginning in 2001 and writing reviews for the notable products I've purchased over the years. By notable, I mean products that I am very happy with as well the ones that I now regret purchasing.
