The Makita 1/2 in. Angle Drill (model DA4000LR) is ideal for confined, hard to reach places. The drill’s angle attachment rotates 360 degrees for maximum versatility and can be removed for use as a straight drill. The powerful 7.5-Amp motor delivers speeds of 0 – 400 RPM or 0 – 900 RPM with the quick-switch high-speed drill head. The drill is made with full ball bearing construction for longer tool life and features an ergonomic rubber handle for increased ease of use.
i was really surprised at the really fine quality and the lower decibel levels of the unit …
As an old guy, weight of a tool is really important to me…The Makita DA4000LR weighed in at 8.1 lbs and the closest competition was the Dewalt DW120k which came in at 9.75 lbs. That 2 lbs is VERY noticeable to me! When the Makita was delivered, i was really surprised at the really fine quality and the lower decibel levels of the unit compared to other 1/2″ drills like the dewalt and the milwaukee…The only negative was the storage case which is strong on the outside, but weak on the inside, and arrived with a tear inside. Since there is no way to order a case separately, Amazon was nice enough to make an adjustment, as the drill is even better than I could have even hoped for!
Powerful enough and quiet
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. What I like most is that it’s light (which means a lot when you are carrying it up and down a ladder all day, and that it’s quiet!! This is a big plus because often the drill is only a couple feet from your ears. I know I could wear hearing protection but it’s easier to just buy a quiet drill. Today I’m buying a second one for another employee I’ve been so pleased!
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.
Higher rated performance than similar Milwaukee…
but durability remains to be seen. Case is unnecessarily large and flimsy. Otherwise, will surpass any amateur and semi-pro’s needs. Pros running wires or installing plumbing daily will pass on this model.
Received Two that Leaked Oil
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.
The Makita tools are far superior to other brands
I used to use Milwaukee electric drills and battery powered tools. Once I bought and used the Makita, I’ll never go back to another brand. The Makita tools are far superior to other brands. We use them in the electrical industry every day all day long and the Makita are the best. This right angle drill has as much power as the Milwaukee but is much lighter. I would highly recommend them to anyone.
