  • Summary: I use this tool for working on my hobby quality RC cars and trucks. It is PERFECT for it! I dont know how I did with out it...The adjustable clutch works like a charm, Set it to 1 or 2, or and it wont over tighten screws that thread into plastic. You can also set it for direct drill to eliminate the clutch for full power drilling purposes. BUY IT! you wont regret it.

Supper quality cordless screw driver

  • Summary: I bought this tool to use at work as a screw driver for computer hardware assembly, beside this Makita, I have three other cordless tools made by different manufacturers. I hardly use them because they can not perform as this Makita. It is a little pricecy, but it worths the money. This is one of the best one that I like to use in for all the jobs. It is well made, long last battery and good solid looking.

Powerful Tool, with Incredible Battery Life

  • Summary: I am a copier technician, and wanted something to speed up removing copier covers with multiple screws. I had been using a ratcheting screwdriver, which worked well but still took a while on machines that use 10-15 screws to secure a single cover. This Makita makes my job so much easier and service calls go much faster. I'm most impressed with how long the batteries last, and also that they don't drain while sitting for days on end.

Great for Light Work - Hope it Lasts

  • Summary: Purchased this unit to replace an 8-year old Milwaukee stick. The Milwaukee worked OK - but power, low RPM, and battery life were big drawbacks. It was light, though - and that's important to me. The Makita is a heavier unit, but I'm adjusting to it pretty quickly. Battery life is excellent - a big plus. Power is a bit low, but not a real issue. I use it primarily for assembly/disassembly of electronic cabinets and components.

Best Money Can Buy...

  • Summary: My old AEG (now made by Milwaukee) rechargeable screwdriver that could be bent or used straight (like this model) has seen better days and I've gone through at least 6 battery replacements on it over the years, so I researched what was out there in today's market. I stumbled on this model and, despite its very high price, I opted to give it a try. It's wonderful - slightly larger than my old model but with loads more power and the batteries charge super-fast.

Great Replacement!!!

Michael D. Scholler, amazon.com

  • Summary: I bought this driver because I wanted to update a couple of B&D pieces I have. I own a 3.6v B&D Versapak with a magnetic tip holder and clutch. I also own a 7.2v B&D Versapak keyless chuck drill. I have used these for years with only a few complaints. One the bits & batteries fall out of the driver too easy. Two the batteries wear out pretty fast and are heavy. Three the drill had very little power and speed.

Where's the power

  • Summary: I own the impact model of this 7.2 driver and often thought it was a little too aggressive for most cabinet hardware work. So I thought i would get the DF010DSE with the clutch and light. I have been a little disappointed in the power with this unit. I have really not needed the clutch as most everything ie. (drawer slides, hinges, handles ) need full power from the unit.

  • Summary: I have become a devotee of Makita tools. Despite their expense, I have come to prefer them over other companies. Precise, powerful, lightweight and ergonomic, they are pleasurable to use.
