Having complained in my previous review I wanted to update to say that Makita will replace batteries free of charge. Possibly as they realised there is a fault with the battery model. Worth checking if you have the same issue.

Brought 2 days ok, already playing up!

Batteries don’t hold charge, only used for 30mins and battery died! Put said battery in charger (which appears to not be working correctly, as the light to let you know it’s charging, charged or faulty battery doesn’t work!). After said battery being in the charger for an hour, the drill will run for 30/40seconds max!! And randomly cuts in and out during that time!! This will be going back tomorrow for a full refund!

Poor performance and battery life

Bought this drill two years ago to replace a well used black and decker NiCd drill. Chose Makita due to brand quality - be aware these are low performing consumer units and not up to expected Makita quality. Torque was poor in comparison to my original. More alarming if the batteries run flat they do not charge again! Rendering the whole drill useless. Check online of other comments about the battery life. Steer clear of this one - don’t assume the brand gives you what you expect. Very disappointed as the cost per hole drilled is expensive and now have to buy another drill........ definitely not Makita again.

Quality brand, Quality tool.

Can't believe other reviews saying poor quality and performance. Mine looks, feels and performs fine, quality tool.

Okay for the odd DIY job

I have had this for over a year and to be honest it's joke to have Makita written on it. I know it's a relatively cheap drill but you dont even get what you pay for here. Apart from the odd DIY job, drilling in wood etc it's actually quite weak and useless. The most obvious thing you realise how weak the torque is, unlike most drills you are forced to use the specified torque settings it struggles and failed to properly screw in wood screws. It has a hammer setting and I don't know why, even using a quality but it's useless when it comes to masonary. Be warned this is fancy screwdriver at best. Useless, don't be fooled this is a poor man's makita and you can get much better for the price. I won't mention the battery as that's too obvious
