Summary: Dont buy any other drill but makita! I work in the colorado mountains as a home builder and makita makes the best cordless drills. Trust my opion, I work every day with their line up of tools and put all tools to the true wear and tear!!!
Summary: The BDF451Z LXT is a heavy and large tool. After having used the BTD141 LXT for over a year now, I've come to love it's compactness and power. This drill is at least as heavy as any electric drill I have ever owned. I am sure it is as powerful as it is hefty.
Summary: I have Makita tools and all of the ones you get at the store seem to be good, but when you get the top of the line tools like this one, you realize that the tools that they sell in the multipacks are only middle of the road. This drill seems so much more powerful, and WOW the torque...
Summary: I bought this drill three years ago, and have been very happy with it. It is so powerful that I began using it for jobs that would have been much more appropriate to a impact driver instead of a drill/driver.
