"bought this drill as an emergency replacement for the same model on which the clutch has failed after one year and ten days.Cannot really comment on the new machine yet, but the old one during its limited life performed excellently- carrying out drilling & light chiseling duties with consumate ease. Have recently had a clutch failure on another very similar Makita drill, also just outside Screwfix warranty, I'm wondering whether Makita have a problem. I will contact them to see what they have to say. I have some Makita power tools which are 35 years old and still going strong! While I don't expect drills of this type to last forever, I feel that there should be more than twelve months life in them."
