Worth every penny

  • Summary: I needed a nice right angle drill for tight quarters. This fills the bill quite nicely. The drill is beafy yet is compact. It has great torque and is comfortable to operate. I can vary the speed to my taste and the light is indespensible in those dark corners where the drill is used most. The quality is high. This machine is built with years of service in mind. After spending lots of money on cheap drills, I found this purchase most satisfying.

Quality all the way

Anant Dabholkar, Amazon

  • Summary: This tool has so much torque at low speeds and control of rpm using the rotating locking switch that it is absolutely in a class by itself. Worked with some brass screws in tight corners in hard maple, and found out that no other power tool could do what this did, and so delicatly, no stripped screw heads. Control was so consistent and torque so reliable.

JUST AWESOME!!!

  • Summary: This is the #1 right angle drill you could ever buy for small to medium drilling job. The variable speed control is absolutely great...you can actually set the max desired speed so you can not over speed on some material. The LED light is fantastic for undersink work where thing might be dark and hard to see. The drill can rip up to max RPM very fast...and still feel very solid in your hand. No doubt...! First rate top notch equipment. PERIOD!!!

Quality, for special apps and some general use

  • Summary: I am a home builder. Anticipating some close quarter work, I picked up the Makita DA3010F. It sat in my tool box for a few months while I was putting up walls, beams and joists. As I progress into more detailed internal framing, I've been going to the Makita for what I will call light Hawg work. Like the other reviewer says, its lighter and won't break your wrist like the real thing.

It's even sweeter when you get your hands on it !

  • Summary: I just reported on this drill based on specifications, compared to some of the forerunners in the competition. In addition to that review, I have to say, I just received the drill, and it is truly a well built machine. It addresses all of the other concerns reviewers were stating with the competition. The paddle on-off switch is conveniently located.

The closest quarters 3/8" chuck corded electric drill available.

Amazon Customer, Amazon

  • Summary: One look at the chuck of this drill telegraphs immediately what it can do. Most (if not all) other right angle drills have their chucks added on to the hypoid or right angle geared mechanism. This Makita DA3010F distinguishes itself from the rest, because the chuck itself occupies the same space that the gear mechanisms occupy in other drills. Did that make sense? If not, look back at the picture of the drill again.

Very powerful, nice angle drill

Amatuer, Amazon

  • Summary: This drill was used while finishing a basement, especially boring through floor joists and 2x4's to install wiring. It was more than powerful enough and the LED proved to be more than a novelty - it ws very handy when sticking the drill into tight spots! The only knock I have against it is the same for all Makita drills: the chuck will not stay tightened for more than a few minutes and continually has to be retightened.

BEST IN SHOW -Obsessive Tool Guy Compares to the Competition

Karl G. Fife, Amazon

  • Summary: I considered all of the right-angle drills currently available in this class before making my purchase. Here is why I decided against each of the competitors and bought the Makita DA3010F: THE COMPETITORS: --Bosch 1132VSR 3/8" Right-Angle Drill I have many fantastic Bosch tools, but this one does not impress me. It is less powerful than the others in its class, and the bevel gears generate a lot of heat when being worked long or worked hard.

Quality personified

Amazon Customer, Amazon

  • Summary: I looked hard at these drills before I picked this one. The head height and variable speed is what sold me on this one. None of the others had this minimum clearance. One cautionary note, the paddle switch is large, which makes it easy to run the drill, but also easy to accidentially switch it on. So when changing out drill bits UNPLUG IT! Also you need to be a little careful when you put it down, as you could put it down so that the switch kicks on.

This is the sweet combination

Bob Feeser, Amazon

  • Summary: I looked at a lot of right angle drills before choosing this one. My needs are to be able to drill holes for wiring etc, in floor joists, and also being able to access cramped quarters in building cabinetry. Additionally, I needed to have a drill that would not be too powerful for mounting screws. Well this drill uniquely fills that bill exactly.
