Powerful enough and quiet

Bill Wine, amazon.com
22 April 2008
  • Summary: I have owned this drill for about 3 years. I am an electrician and use the drill almost daily. I've never had it run out of power (although when I'm drilling through more than 6 inches of wood I will reduce my bit down to 3/4 inch. The plastic collar of the side handle has broken a little after getting dropped on a wood subfloor in 30 degree weather, but I think that's almost to be expected.

Received Two that Leaked Oil

  • Summary: I ordered and received this item twice in a defective condition. Each time the drill arrived with a very noticeable amount of light oil in the case. The case was also deformed each time. I do not believe based on an inspection of the packaging that UPS mishandled the box in transit. In other words, it was only subject to the normal amount of abuse and not crushed up. I called Makita and they said the oil in the case is not normal and I should return it, which I did.

  • Summary: So far I have to say it's an excellent drill and would recommend it to any one. Only bad thing I have to say about it is the crappy case they give you.
