A very very good mower - I used my neighbours only yesterday

Very powerful -

Got this on a deal with Amazon nearly three years ago for just under £60.00. We have about 80 square metres of grass and I can cut in 30 mins doing a proper job. Never any issues. I have sharpened the blades once with a drill tool. Gets between trees and shrubs in tight spaces. Easy to move, lift and store. Great pick up although sometimes you need to help it through if grass damp. Easy to put bin on and take off. Three grass cut settings but only ever used shortest cut. Grass looks just as good as neighbours who get people in to cut. Even gets through grass half a foot long if you get lazy X)

There's the bhp459 with 2 x 3ah batteries for £170 and some free screws @ Screwfix if the 484 is a bit too much.
The bhp459 is another great piece and surely more than just a diy tool.

this is an excellent deal! An a most informative thread, I wish there were a seperate hukd for quality tools only... If anyone has any links to good places to sound out high quality tools for prices like this i'd appreciate any help i can get.

The only 18v drill currently made in the UK seems to be the 481, which is also made in China. In fact, it seems only the anniversary version is made in the UK according to that website, but it does seem incomplete.

The 484 isn't anything like the 481. The 481 has double the torque, a metal chuck, and weighs a lot more. It's their heavy duty drill.
The 484 is a general purpose drill, with plastic chuck, and a successor to the 480 which someone already mentioned.

Would be interested to know what they say. But from the looks of things, the main 18v new kit will be made in China.

The drill you bought is old.

From what I can tell, drill bits etc. are normally sourced from Germany. And just rebranded. And actually not great quality - at leas their large sets. Although I just bought a Pro XL set.

Like I said, I have the latest Makita kit - DHP484, DTD154, the multi tool, and LED light - all made in China.

And Makita's website says they've been making products in China since '95. So not sure why that would be questioned.



China factory opened in 1995, but the others remain open.
Not all Makita tools are made in china.
The website you suggested (which is not linked to Makita whatsoever) states that 18v brushless dhp481 is produced in UK.

http://www.productfrom.com/product/571904-makita-18v-brushless-combi-drill/

The 484 is almost identical to the 481, so what would be the point of importing it from china???
Anyway, that website is not a reliable source.
Gonna give Makita UK a ring tomorrow and see what they say.
All my collection of Makita tools, old and new are made in UK.

Lazy? What a ridiculous statement. There's nothing lazy about making something easier to move. A workman takes longer on a job unloading and loading tools into his van, he's considered to be milking it. He loads his tool bag up and runs everything back to the van in one go and he's considered lazy? Why don't you go pop the kettle on and let the "lazy" builders get on with what they need to do.

I guess possibly because people don't value the box. In which case you could possibly make a similar bundle but go up to the brushless 480 (which is on here for £79 body only) for not much more. Also many people may not understand the value of the impact driver to them, therefore are just considering the Drill and Batteries.

I know its not the right way to look at it. But I think bundles can be very hit and miss on here, unless they are way below the separate price. As only a select few will value every component in the bundle as you have

Good call on the DTD146, have to wait for pay day..

Good deal for 2 x 3ah batteries. I have the 458 and it is much higher torque (a wrist breaker!) but it is indeed a heavier beast, albeit short and stubby.

Screfix do the very similar 453 with 4ah battery (one battery) for £149 so this is better deal I'd say

A lot of reviews seem to say the Makita bits are rubbish, so based on that, maybe they are only worth £10.

The only thing that concerns me about Flubit is after sales service. I'd rather pay an extra £10 to Amazon for their service, but maybe that's just me!

I'd have gone for the kit minus the drill bits for a tenner less, assuming that your £150 doesn't include the bits.I'm hoping to move some point in the next 6 months, and have some last minute bits to do here before moving somewhere where a whole bunch more furniture/wall units/shelves will be required, so kinda in the same boat as you!Either way, i need one now, as a hole saws i'm using are ending up a little bigger than expected, so downlighters are falling out off them!



Yes, just noticed it's without the 105 pce kit for £150 that you get through Flubit. Is that not worth a good bit more than £10 and good to have as backup? Does anyone know if the bits ares reasonable quality? I have some decent drill bits bought from screwfix which I could just use instead though.

I'm still deliberating. It may be worth doing a Flubit though Wolf because it only took a couple hours for the deal to come through for me ;-)

Yes, I know the difference is not really documented anywhere but I saw it in a few YouTube videos and also on the ITS blog that compares all the models, I think.Funny you mention that, as I did the same thing when I bought mine (went to Screwfix and bought the 453 for £150, but didn't open it X) as thought I'd check HUKD when I got back!)The 459 is nice, a friend has it and I used it for a bit and it seemed quite capable. I imagine these drills will be supported for quite some time as the batteries are interchangeable with other Makita power tools, however, as soon as they change battery design I would think the support will drop.Good luck with your projects. I know I keep looking for more stuff to do but now starting to run out of ideas (which is a first!) No doubt thanks to this drill :pP.S.
