Powerful 4.9 AMP motor. Variable speed (0 to 2,500 RPM) for drilling in a wide variety of materials. Keyless chuck for fast and easy bit installation and removal. Large trigger switch for comfortable operation. Low decibel rating (79 dB) for quieter operation.
If you use this for what it’s designed for. 5 stars all day. This is a drill, not a Driver.
Gosh, I must have had this thing for years now – was poking through the review requests. For when a battery piece won’t do, this has been an excellent addition to the shop. Bulletproof, has never failed through all sorts of abuse (like sideways pressure for grinding).
Torque and Balance
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.
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_.
Great product and arrived promptly.
Makita 3/8" drill
Nice Drill works great.
Last drill you will ever need.
This Makita drill is the best. It has power, it is made strong, it feels like it will last forever. I have owned many different drills in the past and this one put them all to shame.
While the drill does a good job spinning, the chuck leaves something to be desired, It continually loosened on me when i was using it with a masonry bit in concrete, something the Craftsman this replaced didn’t have a problem with.
