Excellent small tools comparable to Milwaukee and Bosch

This kit is a real bargain at the currently advertised price (as of this writing).

Great compromise between utility and usability… and cost being a major bonus

I do division 10, 11, and 12, which involves a lot of drilling through tile, structural steel, wood, gypsum wall board, HDPE, phenolic resin, stone, and concrete in order to install grab bars, accessories, bathroom partitions, whiteboards, handrails, blinds, signs, and the like.

Lightweight, Moderately Powerful, Limited Capacity

Don’t expect this 10.8 volt (it’s not really 12 volts, as Makita and other 10.8 volt cordless tool makers falsely claim) duo to effortlessly handle heavy drilling and driving. That’s not their intended purpose. Where they really excel is being extremely lightweight and portable tools whose new lithium ion batteries recharge faster, hold a charge in storage longer, and are not subject to the damaging ‘memory effect’ that plagued previous generations of cordless drill/drivers powered by nickel cadmium batteries.

Buying these Makita’s are still worth it for the performance, but they are a great deal on sale.

This is a really good drill set for small jobs around the house, and even at work. I assume not for the heavy duty jobs, but these drills are really light and easy to use; I don’t get tired holding these around while working on my projects. It is a powerhouse for such a small battery (12 v Lithium Ion) which lasts a decent time on a full charge. I also don’t need to worry about a memory effect, which is great since I don’t use it that much; and since it holds a charge for a long time with low self discharging, it is always ready when I need it. The battery has a 3 year warranty, but since Amazon is around it is not much of a concern. It may be worthy to note that these do not come with drill/ driver bits, which I feel is odd for a “set” to be so incomplete, but these drills perform well enough for me to give it the five star rating anyway.

Solid, not amazing

I bought these due to recently purchasing a new home and I don’t want to be the only red-blooded American male with no decent power tools. I used a few times for simple projects like hanging stuff on the wall. Then, I used for a heavier project which required both power tools over the course of 4 hours of drilling, screwing and cussing. What I found was that they’re just “ok” for most home projects. Certainly, a contractor would prob find these crappy. Batteries charge and lose charge fairly quickly. I drilled about 12 holes in 2×4’s and my battery was almost completely dead. Impacted in about 18 screws ranging from 1 1/2 inches in length to 1/2 inch. Battery ran dead on impactor. Good news is that while you’re using one, you can charge the other and that goes pretty quickly (20 minutes to use for another 30 or so). The torque generated is decent, but a few times I was drilling (yes, I know the nuances of drilling) I had to really make sure I was working the bit in and out to keep it from freezing up in the lumber. Impactor seems to work great no matter what. BTW, if you’ve never used an impactor to put screws into lumber or metal, you’ll REALLY enjoy the experience. I didn’t get exactly how the physics of it worked until I used it. Pretty darn cool and efficient. Bottom line: if you’re looking for a heavy-duty set that’ll last for hours and has a strong amount of torque, this isn’t for you. However if you want a decent system with matching price, this is a great starting point!

Don’t buy the Makita 12v drill, driver combo.

Half of the combo works fine. The drill performs as advertised and expected. The impact driver is another story! It failed 5 weeks after purchasing the combo from Amazon. Makita said that since the item was only warranted for 30 days from date of purchase, they would not replace the unit. I had to ship the defective impact driver to an authorized repair facility. Two months later I received the driver back, supposedly repaired. Wrong! The impact driver is doing exactly what it did before…. not driving screws. I have had other Makita products with no complaints and been very satisfied with the products. Not this combo! Worse item I have ever ordered from Amazon.

Amazing kit.

I am a dealership mechanic (Audi if you’re curious) and I bought this kit through Matco (probably a bad idea considering I paid a lot more for it through the truck than I would have through Amazon or HD… but oh well, what are you gonna do?)

Makita needs to tweak this product

Drill driver didn’t have as much power as my old makita 12v. Impact driver worked well but screw driver bits kept sliding out of driver. The case is nice and the charger works quickly.The drivers are very light and fit nicely in a tool belt holster, but the impact driver not holding bits needs to be addressed.

Impact driver is magical

It is surprising the amount of power the drill and impact have for such a small tool. I do a lot of cabinetmaking and these work great. Getting into tight spaces was always a pain…not to mention the weight of my 18-volt tools. For doing more everyday things, these have plenty of power. I was able to sink a 3″ screw into 2-2×4’s without a problem using the impact driver. The build quality on these is great. Coming from lower-end tools like Ryobi, they are incredibly well-built. I’d highly recommend these to anyone that is looking for a great everyday set of power tools.
