1/2" Makita drill
It's used to drill holes, of course.

Why is it a good buy? Compared to the other oriental manufactured brother this Makita replaces: The other new drill was used several times. Boring through good quality steel requires "some guts". The other drill was smoking going through 3/16ths cold rolled steel, the bit was gouging and digging in, and sticking. This Makita didn't bog down under proper pressure which allows for correct use of cobalt drill bits, in this application.

The finished holes were perfect. The variable speed is gradual and smooth. This drill delivers the correct rpm for great control over the job providing for less manhandling of the tool. And the rotating handle is a very nice added feature. Topping that off, CPO's pricing was also a reason this drill was purchased.

Nothing comes to mind for what wouldn't be so good about this product. It's well thought out in design and manufactured with the quality and reliability we've come to expect from Makita.

Does the drill rpm vary as to how hard you pull the trigger?
