Makita is one of the best you can get, it may only be 12v but it will out perform cheaper 24v drills. :thumbsup:

This has an all metal 2 speed gearbox and a 30 minute fast charger.
Max torque is 36nm (compare that with other drills) , you won't need another drill unless you're doing heavy work in masonry.

been using a mikita 12v for around 3 years and its still alive and kicking!!
highly recommend them and this is a great deal.
very tempted to get myself another one

This is a hot deal... Makita is the danglings IMHO.. I've got the 18v version of this drill and it's suberb.. Hit the red one..:thumbsup:

Makita is indeed a true trade brand, used by professionals for their durability and reliability. Unlike some of the ones that just claim it. Hot.

I was asking more along the lines, of how does it compare with the other Makita offers that have been posted in the past.
I assume the case and drill bits aren't Makita, as it doesn't look as good as the Makita drawer set on other sites.

Is it worth waiting for another 8xxx offer or will the 6270 be a good drill for around the house tasks etc. Also how long do the batteries tend to last as 1.3Ah seems quite small (I know you have 2 batteries...)
banned#8
With battery drills you should look at the Ah , I fit windows and conservatories every day and use a Panasonic with a 3.5Ah battery which IS the 'danglings'

So dose anyone know if the chest and the bits are Makita, surely they are!

The 6270 is perfect for around the house and the batteries are more than adequate.
The chest and bits are Makita as far as i can see, chests vary in quality. :)
This is the 14.4v version on the Makita site, looks like the same accessories.

True but 3.5Ah would be wasted for diy use, 1.3Ah or 2Ah is fine.
Agree about Panasonic though, great drills. :thumbsup:

Most of my kit is Makita and they are a quality trade brand. I have the MXT 18V cordless the best you can get better than the LXT Li-ion by a mile in my opinion.

This is a fantastic deal and I am very tempted but have spent so much on tools lately!
#12
Makita red batteries are DIY range, not proffessional though. Red batteries are only Ni-CD which is old technology, not as good as NMH or lithium. This is the way I understand it, i'm happy to be corrected though.

Yeah you will be corrected! First of all Makita only make trade professional tools so they would not use inferior batteries. They have some side offerings from Maktec and Site but they come no where near. NiCd are not for DIY, they were the industry standard until NiMH came about. You still cant beat NiCD for power though, although NiMH are close and Li-Ion are nowhere near. The only reason I moved to NiMH is because the charge cycling for NiCDs are not so great and require far more maintenance. Although they will definitely be around for a long while yet. For a good compromise use NiMH. Li-Ion come last and if anything they would be for DIY in my books.

For your information batteries are more important than the actual power tools. I dont care if my bare drill bodies get lost its the batteries I look after. Batteries are what powers the power tool and I'd say 80% performance from the actual battery.
#14
You sound like you know what you are on about, but could you explain this, if Lithium batteries are so poor in comparison, how is it that my Bosch GSR10.8V comes with Lithium batteries. As you may know, the GSR is part of the Bosch proffessional range and not cheap. The GSR is a very small drill/driver but has amazing power (18Nm) and will last a whole days use on a single charge. These very small batteries cost £50 each from bosch. Surely there must be a reason for this premium?
#15
What TeddyT hasn't mentioned is the environmental problems of NiCd batteries which has led to many calls for them to be phased out. Manufacturers will no doubt be trying to move to other technologies in anticipation of this. Energy density (how much life you get per charge for a given size/weight) for NiMH is higher than for NiCd and for LiIon it is higher still. NiCd is the oldest of the three technologies.

Wouldn't it just be cheaper to buy a new drill with 2 batteries??

[COLOR="Navy"]I thought that one of the chief advantages of Li-Ion batteries for D-I-Y use is that they lose their charge very slowly when not in use, unlike the other battery technologies.

It's not likely to be important to those of you who are using power tools all day every day in your job, but for those of us who are infrequent DIYers, it's a pain when you pick up that drill/screwdriver/whatever to do a job and you find that you have to charge the battery first. Li-Ion gets over this problem.[/COLOR]

I have this exact set, and yes they are genuine makita bits, made in Japan - NOT CHINA. The quality of these bits are as good as they get, which is really what makes this deal stand out for me. I paid around 75 quid for this last year, and built my house in the Czech Republic with it - well installed the huge kitchen, 3 x bedroom furniture sets, did the wiring, put up shelves on solid concrete walls etc etc, and this drill was more than good enough for anything i could throw at it.

As for the battery, from completely flat to fully charged takes around 25 minutes, and i doubt any home user with flatten the other in that space of time. As for a tradesman, also highly unlikely.

As far as i see it, this is an investment, ie You could use it for many years and still get half your money back for it on flebay. You cant do that with some B+Q own brand rubbish....

If you are thinking about buying it .... Just buy it. Youll be oh so glad you did.

[COLOR="Navy"]It is in the Technical Notes - follow the link to the deal at the top of this page, and in the Technical Notes under the picture it says this drill driver has a compact design with an overall length of 192mm and is fitted with a high and low setting all metal gearbox, the operator has overall control with full forward & reverse action, variable speed trigger and has an inertia brake fitted as standard

I do think that the deal you posted with 3 batteries and a 101-piece bit set looks like even better value than the original post! (Even if you don't get the natty blue tool chest).[/COLOR]

I recon that the Bosch proffessional range is pretty much up there with Makita, but if I had to choose between the two, same spec and price, i'd go with Makita.

The bosch is good but even though it's 14.4v, it has less power than the Makita 12v, and it's a one hour charge time.
Still a good drill though :thumbsup:

I bought the Makita couple of minutes before you posted your reply :) I decided that a drill set is more useful :) it is priced £40 on tooled up so still worth every penny!
Thanks!

I'd say for the DIYer and light trade use Ryobi has got to be excellent value for money. Better off getting that than a cheap power tool, the price difference would not be that much.

As for the Bosch and Makita comparisons, its all down to personal preference, I stuck with Makita because I'm used to them now and know their quirks. I think the Bosch and Makita are on a par when it comes to performance.

I have a Li-Ion 7.2V Makita impact driver and like the convenience of it having charge every time i use it but power wise it doesn't match up to your regular NiCd's or NiMH's. The Bosch GSR 10.8V drivers are excellent and I will probably get one at some stage, The smaller Li-Ion power tools seem to fair OK its the bigger 18V, 24v and 36V bats that have issues with overheating and power loss. I don't think the technology is refined yet and me personally wont jump on the Li-Ion bandwagon for a while yet.

Also I dont think this particular drill has metal gears, as far as I know its only the MXT range and the predecessor to the MXT equivalent i.e. the makita 6316. But then again with 36Nm of torque this would suggest it does have metal gears unless they have it mixed up...

Decided to buy this for general diy around the house, but before I do is this drill ok for drilling into masonry as it does not specify hammer action?

Thanks
#36
When I bought my house, I was told that I should invest in a good drill...

I was lucky and I got to use a Set of Makita Drills while working with a follow Engineer installing a server cabinet. I am most pleased with my 18v Makita (ordered it from Screw fix, £90 + 101 toolkit) Don't think I've ever been so pleased with something I've ordered before (Sad :[)

I would recommend Makita tools, don't have experience of anything to compare, but I have been told to get 18v as a min... go for 24v if you have the budget - however for general house work I think the 24v will be heavy... the 18v is far from light (if using it as a screw driver)
