Well Balanced

This drill packs alot of power for only 4.9 amps. The tool is very well balanced and very quiet. I would have given it 5 stars if not for the “unremoveable” chuck. The owners manual does not give any instructions on how to remove nor is there any discernable fiting inside the chuck. All in all a good drill with ample power. Remember Makita makes their own motors.

The chuck is removable

After breaking the keyless chuck (don’t ask). I too was stumped as to how to remove it. I finally decided I had nothing to lose by taking the drill apart. After clamping the broken end of the chuck in a vise, I was able to apply enough force to the gear to unscrew the shaft from the chuck. A new replacement chuck screws back on the same way.

I thought Makita made quality tools at one time

I had this make and model for about 5 years. The drill developed some problems soon after I bought it, most notably a trigger defect that made running it a hassle. The chuck was another problem because it got worn out so that it could not be tightened although my use was not extensive. A new chuck cost almost as much as new drill so I opted to buy a new one of a different brand.

My Makita 6408 drill has been used for household projects for several years. It has a very nice feel to it and has functioned very well.

Torque and Balance

2 of 2 people found the following review helpful
I have been using this or the earlier versions of this drill in my cabinet shop for more than 20 years. I has very good balance, fits my hand well, transferring the driving weight directly down the shaft enabling me to drive 3 inch screws to pull very heavy cabinets up against the wall. When you need to hold the weight of the cabinet and drive the screw at the same time, you appreciate a balanced powerful driver that is up to the task. I wouldn’t buy anything else.

A good, solid drill. As with most Makita products, it is well designed, rugged, an reasonably priced. Feels a bit less ergonomic that the older model, but still a good drill.

If you use this for what it’s designed for. 5 stars all day. This is a drill, not a Driver.

Perfectly adequate drill for homeowner/hobbyist

I’ve owned a copy of this drill for a few years now, and it’s held up pretty well. I have not really asked it to do heavy-duty remodeling or contractor-level work, but in comparison to a Craftsman, it is holding up *much* better. Bearing and gear noise are about the same as when new. (whereas the Craftsman is obviously galling its bearings). When driving many screws (10s, but not 100s) the exhaust air gets noticeably hot, enough so that I explicitly let it cool off. That said, though, it’s been good enough that I got a pair for my father for Christmas, and he uses tools _hard_.

Very quiet and smnooth running drill. Recently used w/ wire brushes to remove rust from cental A/C compressor fan cover.Worked very well in that application. High speed w/ the brushes resulted in rapid rust removal.Drill is well balanced. Very good power for a high RPM drill!!!
