Ranked in these QuestionsQuestion Ranking
Pro Suitable for medium-duty use
With 480 inch-pounds of torque, 1900 RPM of maximum speed, and a well-balanced hummer mode, it’s very versatile. It is powerful enough to drill hardwood, metals and even concrete.
Pro Great value for money
With a price tag of just $119, this cordless drill is powerful and very decently built and it comes with high quality 3.0 Ah batteries. It even features a hammer-drill mode. Within the $120 price range, this is the best option money can buy.
Pro Battery charges very quickly
It will take you only about 30 minutes to fully charge its 3.0 Ah battery.
Pro Small chance of defects
To eliminate even the tiniest possibility of a defect, the manufacturer tests each drill individually during the production process.
Pro Decent warranty option
Makita offers a full-year service warranty for the drill, battery, and charger. If you encounter any problems with the product, Makita will provide a refund, no questions asked. On top of this, it has a limited three-year repair warranty for all the components.
Pro Transportable on your belt
You don't need to hand-carry the tool, as it comes with a reliable and handy belt attachment.
Con Battery life is limited
Due to the combination of an inefficient four-pole motor (which is less efficient than brushless DC motors) and a standard capacity battery, this tool has a relatively short runtime. A single charge will grant you 5 - 7 minutes of intensive working time. Keep in mind that the set comes with only one battery.
