short lead

themissingdigit, reviews.screwfix.com
14 May 2014
  • Summary: the drill is fine overall, but the lead is only 2m. lots of my work involves being around 3m off ground. i also purchased a 50m double socket extention lead, but due to the drill lead being too short it isnt practical to use. the 2 part keyless chuck is hard to get tight enough to hold the drill bit when drilling steel. the 1 part chucks used on most cordless drills are far better than this.

chuck it

smkplumber, reviews.screwfix.com
6 January 2014
  • Summary: I Have one of these over a year now and chuck has failed. It became harder and harder to open and close by hand to the point where I started using a pair of grips instead of by hand. Now even grips wont make it open or close.

Excellent Drill

AntonMak, reviews.screwfix.com
27 July 2013
  • Summary: The drill is smooth, powerfull and well balanced with an excellent chuck. The tool box is very well thought out with secure storafe for everything you might want. Only wishes would be slightly longer flex (though adaquete) and fixed settings for variable speed - though the variable speed triger works reasonably well. Once again Makita proves the right choice.

What's up chuck?

Letdavedoit, reviews.screwfix.com
19 July 2010
  • Summary: I bought the HP1621. The chuck has failed in just over 1 year of light use. Based on other reviewers comments this is a common problem so not much point buying a new chuck.

Typical Makita

JerBish, reviews.screwfix.com
2 February 2010
  • Summary: It's well made, strong and does the job. It has a good comfortable feel, a nice keyless chuck and comes in a useful carry case with plenty of room for drill bits and screws/plugs. Would recommend it as a good general purpose corded percussion drill.

Dodgy Chucks

  • Summary: I bought the HP 2051 and had a similar chuck failure after a little over a year of light use. Rubbish.

Compare with HP1621

polytrad, reviews.screwfix.com
16 March 2009
  • Summary: Looks like the same chuck on this model as on the HP1621. If so beware, as I've just had one fail after barely a year of very light use, and Makita's unhelpful response is that there's no warrantly cover on the chuck as it's a 'wear & tear' item. Conclusion.... my chuck's performance was very poor on 'wear & tear'. Anyone else found this too?
