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. Have been using it for a couple weeks and haven't found anything negative with it yet. **UPDATE** 01-27-2012 Wow, can't believe my original review was over four years ago. Just to follow up...

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.

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. I consider this driver-drill so terrific that I purchased two of them. I keep one in my car and the other in the workshop. This tool has LEDs to illuminate your workspace.

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. In the case of this cordless drill, I bought it in 2007 and it easily fits into the Outstanding category - I've had it for 6 years and it still functions as well now as it did on the day I received it.

sweet drill

rcg, Amazon
4 January 2012
  • Summary: I pretty much agree with all the positive comments and minor caveats in the reviews, to date. I've always liked the Makita products in comparison to Milwaukee or Dewalt: better feel in the hand and outstanding balance makes it feel even lighter than it already is. Only neg so far: lowest clutch setting is a little too much for lightweight drywall. Within what it's built for, this one does not disappoint.

Makita BDF451 18-Volt LXT Lithium-Ion Cordless 1/2-Inch Driver-Drill Kit

B. A. Ivey "OC Bluesman", Amazon
8 November 2011
  • Summary: Very nice kit. We went from a Rigid to this Makita. The size of the drill and batteries is smaller than our old Rigid, but just as heavy duty and works great.
