Comment:
High quality professional grade typical Makita craftsmanship. Very high torque and great power output. I have yet to drain a battery fully without finishing tasks. As a contractor who uses his drill everyday I would highly recommend this product! This drill has every bit of quality, power, and torque you would get from the DeWalt without the inflated price tag. <br /><br />Being a repeat Makita owner I expect this drill will last for many many years.
How long have you owned it:
Three-to-six months
Bottom Line
Yes, I would recommend this to a friend.

Comment:
Bought this drill and compact driver set at the home depot 3 years ago on sale. It was well worth the money. I use it occasionally (every 2 weeks) and have never had a problem with it. The batteries have never failed me and they charge in 15 minutes. It is best used for moderate jobs and has good power considering it has 1.5 amps. Overall I am quite happy with Makita.
