"the drill is fine overall, but the lead is only 2m. lots of my work involves being around 3m off ground. i also purchased a 50m double socket extention lead, but due to the drill lead being too short it isnt practical to use. the 2 part keyless chuck is hard to get tight enough to hold the drill bit when drilling steel. the 1 part chucks used on most cordless drills are far better than this."

Review 8 for Makita HP1631K/1 710W Percussion Drill 110V
"I've always had a good service from Makita tools. Bought the Makita drill 9 days ago for occasional use. Third time I've used it today and the keyless chuck is again a nightmare, repeatedly jams and today it took 30 minutes to undo it after repeatedly applying WD40 and slowly working the chuck back and forth. Eventually got the drill bit out only to find it had jammed again 5 minutes later. Makita need to find a better chuck a the keyless chuck on my previous drll was still working fine after 10 years."
