Comment:
If you want to know what the pro's use, this is it. The Battery is at the heart of any cordless product and these Makita ones are fast charging, hold the charge extremely well in all climate conditions and are powerful. The drill is well made and extremely durable. Myself and the men that work for me have bought and have at least 7 of these. My only issue ever is that on a couple of the older models (5 yrs old approx.) the chucks will loosen when drilling and bit will fall out. The newer ones don't seem to have that chuck issue though. I would expect this drill to last 30 years or more for moderate home use. It's that durable and well built.
How long have you owned it:
More than six months
Bottom Line
Yes, I would recommend this to a friend.

Comment:
This is a great product. The only weakness is the battery. It has a chip in it that indicates when its life is nearly done. I think you would get more life out of the battery if not for the chipset. Batteries are >150 for two.

Comment:
I have owned a Factory Rebuilt version of this tool for several years. Best hammer drill I have purchased. I am a Commercial HVAC technician that does heavy construction. I use it in hammer drill mode on a regular basis at work- goes through concrete like a champ, and steel decking quickly... with a new bit. Once the bit gets a few dozen holes, this drill does not do as well as the dewalt my coworkers use. At home I use it to drill through wood for landscaping. I highly recommend this to anyone under the age of 50 who does a lot of cordless hammer drilling.<br /><br />Caution, if you are older, like my 50 something parents, this hammer drill is NOT for you- it is too heavy and if the bit catches it will hurt your wrist for a few days.
