"I use cordless drills daily for various tasks in my work self employed and this has to be the best value combination drill driver I have bought to date (and I do go through a few) My main criteria for a drill is the battery and longevity of use and I bought the extra battery with this as it was on offer so I can use this all day long without worrying about the battery going flat - Absolutely brilliant piece of kit."
"This drill is a big improvement on my last drill (14v) you can really feel the extra power.
Fast charging so I probably won't need an extra battery.
I have used it for a few jobs in the three weeks I have had it. I have been very satisfied with the speed and power of drilling and driving. The hammer action has gone into brick well. I have not yet had to recharge the battery."
"A really good combi drill for the price, very powerful, long lasting battery and comfortable to use all day long. Dissapointed that I purchased with a spare battery deal and a few days later the same offer was on including spare battery and 101 piece bit set"
"I bought this after using several other combi- and cordless drills. The product is durable and has a good range of bits available in addition to which I purchased a second battery pack. I'd recommend this for renovation and DIY but recognise in making this rating/review that the product may not be sufficiently powerful for professionals."
"An impressive product. Tactile finish that feels well balanced. Very compact design belies excellent power and versatility. One quick charge gave me power for a weekend away caravanning (zipped jack legs down & back up again no problem) then, back home, fitted an external socket in brickwork (4 x 6mm holes x 35mm deep) plus 1 x 20mm x 200mm in double brickwork mortar for the cable. All using the hammer action. Then finished off by driving all the screws home using the supplied bit. Still plenty of charge left for another day! Great all rounder for DIY use! Early days to enthuse about reliability but it looks promising!"
"For the money you can't go wrong! I have a few of this model and must say with heavy daily use they have all been faultless! Some may say the battery pack is small but I have a few spare 3ah battery's so this is not a big problem - quick charging of 30 min but I also have the 9amp charger so this battery is fully recharged in around 10 minutes - great drills!"
""I purchased this drill/driver as an upgrade to my previous makita which was the ni/cad battery version. This drill is much lighter but packs a mighty punch, with a much longer battery life- up to 2/3 times longer. A great performer on a range of jobs (I've just completed a 12ft raised decking project). I would recommend this drill/driver for any type of user, from everyday DIY'ers to more advanced users who may require a light but powerful and reliable drill/driver. The saving in RRP of this drill makes it a real bargain and with a half price second battery availablethis really is an offer not to be missed. A+++++"
"I purchased this drill/driver as an upgrade to my previous drill/driver which was the ni/cad battery version this machine seems to have more power, last loads longer ( around 2.5 times longer) and is a much lighter machine. if the machine last like the old one I will be over the moon. I would strongly recommend this drill/driver, make shore you buy with two batteries, one battery is silly."
"This drill is excellent, it's light with the small battery on it but lasts really well with the decent battery supplied, I have another Makita drill which is a bit older but has not got the lion battery and you do notice the difference. Well built and robust enough to stand up to all sorts of jobs, would recommend this drill to anyone, works really good as a driver as well, I have just put some brackets up in my garage and the screws were driven straight in to the block work with out any pilot holes needed, these were size 8 screw 80 mm long and went straight in."
"oh my god i love this drill i only got it today and i am already in love, i had a bosch psr 14.4 before but that is nothing compared to this ......... buy it best value ever at only £100 !!!!!!!!!!!!!!!"
"Needed a cordless hammer drill, this was on offer. Used it to build a heavy duty bench as I was using 100m screws. This drill put nearly 90 screws into the bench without any effort. The battery lasted with no signs of going flat. Don't let the fact it has only one battery put you off, it is a great bit of kit, and it is more than enough for DIY jobs, and with only a 30 min re-charge it is no problem."
