Absolutely Great Drill and Kit.
Bought this drill for general woodworking and around the house and I've used this to build several Windsor chairs. I've used many other drills (Milwaukee, Sears, Panasonic etc) and find this one to be the BEST. Highly recommended.

After years of using Hitachi Nickel Metal batteries/tools I was long overdue for new cordless tools. I haven't had the Makitas long enough to know about battery longevity but I can say what a difference a decade makes! So much lighter and the power is incredible. They all feel well made and well balanced. Great tools!

7 Years and works like the day I bought
I have had this drill for 7 years. I bought it when this drill first came out with the Li ion battery. It is used around our home daily for all kinds of uses from hammer drilling concrete to putting holes in plastic pots for my wife. The batteries are still like new, hold a long charge and recharge in minutes not hours. I can not say enough about this combo drill. I purchased my first Makita drill 38 years ago and still have it and use it. My co-workers laughed at me when I bought it at the electrical supply house. I'll bet their Black and Decker's aren't still around?
Makita is one of the top tool manufacturer's in my opinion that hasn't gone down in quality as many of the top names of decades past have done to save a buck. If you don't own a Makita tool you don't know what your missing.

Every Makita® Lithium‐Ion Power Tool is thoroughly inspected and tested before leaving the factory. If you are not satisfied with any Makita Lithium‐Ion tool within 30 days of purchase, return it and Makita will provide, at Makita's option, a replacement or refund. Each Makita Lithium‐Ion Power Tool, Battery and Charger is warranted to be free of defects from workmanship and materials for the period of THREE YEARS from the date of original purchase. Should any trouble develop during the three‐year period for the Lithium‐Ion Power Tool, Battery and/or Charger, return the COMPLETE Power Tool, Battery and/or Charger, 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.
