              I've used this drill 4 days a week for about a year and a half now with no really complaints. Great power and battery life. I've dropped it off a ladder 3 times from between 10-25ft with no damage to the drill! only criticisms are that this drill does not have a hammer feature and the rubber accents on the housing start to peel off after a little bit of use.

                Best Uses

                • All Around
                • Heavy Duty
                • Pegging pine timber frame

                I bought this set primarily to add batteries to my LXT impact driver, and to replace a light duty Hitachi drill. In a pinch (dead generator) I tried using it for drilling 8" deep 1" peg holes in pine and oak where I would normally use my 11 amp Dewalt joist drill. The sensitive trigger and solid side handle made the drill safe and pleasant to use, especially on a ladder or in harness. The highest speed is too high, burns the temper out of drill bits, but the lower two are amazingly useful and powerful. Very nearly the perfect cordless drill, if double size (6 ah) batteries were available it would replace my joist drill for all but joist drilling. This is a big drill, great for heavy use, not a screw gun. If you plan to run fasteners buy an LXT impact driver, if you are drilling buy this rig, you will not be disappointed.

                Warranty Information

                Makita LXT Lithium-ion Tool Warranty

                The Makita LXT Lithium-ion Warranty applies to both new and factory-reconditioned Makita tools. Every Makita ® 18V and 14.4V LXT Lithium-Ion Industrial Power Tool is thoroughly inspected and tested before leaving the factory. If you are not satisfied with Makita 18V and 14.4V LXT Lithium-Ion tool within 30 days of purchase, return it and Makita will provide a replacement or refund. Every Makita 18V and 14.4V LXT Lithium-Ion tool is warranted to be free of defects from workmanship and materials for the period of THREE YEARS from the date of original purchase. The Makita LXT Lithium-ion battery has a limited one-year warranty. Should any trouble develop during the three-year period, return the COMPLETE tool, freight prepaid, to one of Makita's Factory or Authorized Service Centers.

                If inspection shows the trouble is caused by defective workmanship or material, Makita will repair (or at our option, replace) without charge. This warranty does not apply to Makita Accessories, like flashlights.

                This Warranty does not apply where:

              • Repairs have been made or attempted by others
              • Repairs are required because of normal wear and tear
              • The tool has been abused, misused or improperly maintained
              • Alterations have been made to the tool

              • In no event shall Makita be liable for any indirect, incidental or consequential damages from the sale or use of the product. This disclaimer applies to both during and after the term of this warranty. Makita disclaims liability for any implied warranties, including implied warranties of "merchantability" and "fitness" for a specific purpose, after the three-year term of this warranty. This warranty gives you specific legal rights, and you many also have other rights which vary from state to state. Some states do not allow the exclusion or limitation of incidental or consequential damages, so the above limitation or exclusion may not apply to you.
