Why didn't I buy one sooner?
11 Apr 2015
By SibboOfBingley
, Bingley
" The old keyless chuck Bosch drill finally gave up, fortunately at the same time I needed to do some render and mortar removal jobs.
To have a drill that also can be switched to 'chisel only' seemed like a handy solution.
However, what really blew me away was once I started using it. The ease of drill bit/chisel bit change with the SDS system together with the power behind the hammer action - I can now drill holes and chisel away and it's like cutting through melted butter.
Very robust product; good toolbox; great set of SDS bits to start off with - good job Makita and great value Screwfix!
:-)

Great & powerful drill
7 Apr 2015
By CamH
, Oxford
" Usual Makita quality (great) and fairly light & compact sds drill.
Great for medium duty applications. Have definitely put it through its paces and has handled all kinds of drilling and chiseling with ease.
Packs more of a punch than some supposedly more powerful drills. "

" Would i recommend this product yes i would what a fantastic piece of kit. The drill is nice, light, looks super cool it is modern and vibrant and after first use the drill action was brilliant powerful and smooth.

Excellent bit of kit
3 Apr 2015
By BilgeRat2
, Staines
" This comes under the heading of "Should have bought one years ago". I was loosing the will to live waiting for my old B&D hammer drill to wear its way through some reinforced concrete. This drill did the job in seconds, smoother, quicker and quieter. Such a joy to use I'm looking about the house for excuses to drill more holes! Excellent value, sturdy case comes with a useful selection of drill bits and chisels plus plenty of room for other odds and sods. "

Exceptional drill
29 Mar 2015
By guy58
, london
" Value: For this price? ..An SDS Makita?...Spot on.
Features: With bits included a real 'plug and play' item. Chuck is not changeable on this model but adapters work a treat. Good balance. 3 features drill, hammer and drill and static hammer.
Performance: It can take a whole heap of bullying. Went through reinforced concrete like butter. No loss of enthusiasm for the job.
Reliability: A real workhorse. It's a monster shared on site, this piece of kit stays cool and unflappable. Had three drills before this and this is the best yet.
If you need a good piece of kit. This is the go to choice!

" . Being a novice when it comes to diy I had a standard 500w drill about 10 years old. It was such a struggle to put up shelves and with it being an old property the walls are solid, I decided to buy a new one.. when I used it for the first time it was like a hot knife through butter!! Great value for money.. would definitely recommend this product!! "

Better than Bosch 2kg SDS
14 Mar 2015
By littlefintail
, Twickenhan
" Picked Up the Bosch 2KG SDS and realized the weight and hammer action force was going to be to feather light. Opted to go with the Makita been great for 5/6 hrs stretches of tiling and render removal. Everyone else 5 star isn't wrong. I like that it come with some tools too. "

Light yet powerful
12 Mar 2015
By penste
, South East London
" Wanted a new SDS to replace an old cheap burnt out unit and after researching for some time decided on the Makita.
I have many other Makita tools and this drill looks and feels very much in line with their high quality build.
Great price, especially with the inclusion of the ten piece tool kit.
I've only marked it down on performance and reliability purely because I haven't had it long enough, but if it goes on as long as my other Makita tools, I'll be more than happy.

" My trusty old Bosch blew on me so I needed a replacement quickly. The Makita was on offer and with a discount voucher it was a no brainer.
A good solid piece of kit with the advantage of a chisel action. Light and easy to use.

Ideal for almost everything

" The Makita SDS Drill is ideal for so many jobs when renovating a new home. With the 10 piece drill and chisel set you can started right away. Bringing up the old garden paths and chasing wires in was so simple with this light weight but very powerful tool. Not had it very long so only 4 stars for reliability so far. "

An absolute beast!
19 Jul 2014
By Superstringy
, Newark-on-Trent
" I bought my first house earlier this year and so have had to scale up the amount of DIY I do. Getting a decent base-level set of tools was key. Having had Makita recommended by some friends who work in the trade and seeing this on offer I plumped for this SDS corded drill to take on the heavier work I'd need to do in the house and garden.
The carry case is sturdy yet light, the drill fits in neatly (no issues with the cord poking out he edges etc) and there's ample space for a few bits and extras too. The bundled set of chisels and drill bits are solid and hardy.
I had an issue whereby one of the bundled bits was bent straight out of the box, but Screwfix swapped it over quick as a flash with no messing around. Can't argue with that.
The drill itself is chunky and weighty (3kg) but thanks to an amazingly well-modelled handle, trigger and adjustable forearm grip it sits nicely in the hands and is comfortable to hold and move about. Controls are easily accessible and satisfying to operate.
In terms of performance it is incredible; on hammer drill mode it cuts cleanly into brick etc with so little judder or kickback you hardly feel you're drilling as quickly and deeply as you are. I have never used a tool like this - similarly-specced corded hammer drills like Bosch and Black & Decker do not come close to this. It just flies into whatever you're drilling into and doesn't need much exterior force at all. The drill remains cool even after extended use and the chuckless SDS bit change process is swift and fluid.
This tool is an absolute joy to use; both beautiful and powerful. I'd recommend this to anyone. "
