This guy is a beast! I needed a dedicated mixing drill because I was sick of burning out my 18 volt Makita drills trying to mix and drill stuff. This thing will mix 5 gallons worth of thinset very quickly I love the variable speed so you can slow it down for grout so you don’t impregnate air into it. Just today at work I used it to drill a 5 1/2″ hole through 10″ of 150 year old Pine foundation boxing and it did it without a hiccup. It didn’t even slow down
This Makita Drill is very popular and lasts forever. The price is exceptional here compared to other stores.
I bought this Makita Drill for my husband and son for Christmas because they are Makita lovers. They claim this is the best drill, lasts forever and works great for what they do. It is very reasonably priced and below any other department store. Great price for such an outstanding product. They were thrilled to receive it. They said they would highly recommend this drill and the price since they were shopping around before Christmas without knowing that I was buying it. I got the best deal!
Solid piece of equipment
Very powerful and solid. We needed something to mix thinset for our bathroom remodel and this drill does the job with little effort for the drill or me. We originally bought a throw away 1/2″ drill from HF, based on the recommendation on a few forums, but it smoked after a few seconds and was useless. Then we rented a drill from a home improvement store and realized the cost would add up fast given our pace of work so we invested in this Makita drill. One of the best decisions we made among the many mistakes.
A tool box "must-have".
This is one of those tools that when you need it, you need it. Perfect for mixing drywall mud and thin-set mortar. My previous one didn’t have variable speed so this one is a treat. The drill is one of Makita’s tools that no other manufacture can match the simplicity and durability. I noticed that the instructions on the thin-set said not to exceed 300 RPM when mixing so this drill has the power to mix at the lower speed.
It’s OK, seems underpowered
Huge Makita fan, but do find this underpowered. Maybe it’s something I’m doing, but I let my electrician (I do low voltage work) try it and he thought the same. He has a DeWalt and I found that to be much more powerful. I was a DeWalt guy years ago and switched to Makita on all of my tools so was a bit surprised. The Makita tools are always better IMO.
I replaced a 30 yr old black and decker. Got the variable speed. Use it for boring and mixing. Does an excellent job. Weighs so little compared to old drill. Best bang do the buck.
This drill has so much torque it turns a 5 …
This drill has so much torque it turns a 5 gallon bucket of mortar. One tough drill that gets the job done.
IT IS EVERYTHING YOU NEED IN A HEAVY DUTY 1/2 INCH DRILL. THE HANDLES MAKE TOUGH SITUATIONS EASY TO MANAGE.
Great for mixing mortar
