Good, but not perfect.
My drill is a slightly different model - not listed here. Like most of my Makita tools, it is well made, and gives few problems. Except ... why have Makita started putting the light in the drills near the trigger ? It then casts a shadow just where you don't want one ! Improve your design Makita - this is really dumb.
Glad I bought it
My old 7.2v makita was getting very tired so after much deliberation I purchased the Makita DDF484RFE 18V 3.0Ah Li-ion Cordless Brushless Heavy Duty Driver Drill Combo Kit . From the start it felt good in my hands and plenty of grunt but capable of being gentle when I put screws into timber. I have drilled into metal and then quick changed to screw quickly. The time I spend on my odd jobs is less, I do things more quickly with the Makita. I went for the brushless hoping to get long life out of it, Makitas are pretty hard to kill so this one sho...uld outlast my previous drill. I was continually recharging batteries before but the new 18v last for ages. I went for the basic drill, never really use a hammer function and have big corded beasts if ever I need to drill concrete. Pretty stoked overall with my purchase.
