Found 26th Dec 2013
Was originally posted here a month ago (credit to bradmole) at £158.99 but price went up to £170. Just checked now and it has come down to £161.99, so although not as cheap before, it still seems like a good price for a Makita with 4.0ah battery and accessory kit.

In case you are wondering what the difference is between all the models, here is a good comparison: its.co.uk/blo…uy/

There is also the BHP458 (one model up) currently on offer here with 2x 3.0ah batteries for £179: hotukdeals.com/tag/dea…020

Or a BHP458 with a single 3.0ah battery for £136.99 now: http://www.hotukdeals.com/deals/makita-bhp458-combi-drill-battery-charger-115-amazon-1732039

Although the 458 is more powerful, the 456 is a good medium duty drill and with the 4.0ah battery, it gives you another option to pick from!

Cheapest I've seen this drill with a 4.0ah battery great find

bought! thanks for refreshing on this deal!

Still this price, and looking at the 453RFE3 (wickes, 139.99, but cloth case) , 456RFWX (toolstation, 149.99) and 458RFX (171, amazon/uktools) drills, and now this one!

Confused with this one - Listed as DHP whereas i'm used to the BHP naming convention - Are they the same ( According to its.co.uk/blo…uy/ they are, its the DDP to avoid)

I go through phases of a solid weekend of DIY, then nothing for 2 months, then another solid weekend, so a long battery, metal case and compact size would be good.

Thinking £12 more for the 4.0 battery and the accessory set over the standard 456RFWX is the way to go.

Stuff it, ordered this.

Yes, the DHP is the same as the BHP model. Basically, the DHP is newer and guaranteed to work with the 4.0ah battery, that's all. The BHP model I bought off Amazon was made in 2012 (purchased in September 2013), so I imagine this DHP one will be made in 2013, for example.

I wouldn't bother with the 453 at Wickes, seems too much for a lightweight drill. The 453 can be had for around £100 with the 1.3ah battery. This is probably worth it for the 4.0ah battery, as I imagine this is what will become the norm. The 458 is also a good deal but not sure how heavy it would feel vs. this (it is at least 1kg more), though it does have a metal chuck, battery indicator and two LEDs as well as a lot more torque!

That said, if you have a corded SDS, then getting a top-end cordless is perhaps not so necessary as I doubt any can match a cheapy/mid-range corded SDS.

Hope that helps.

Excellent - Thank you for that. I can't find the difference between the BHP and DHP on the makita site anywhere, so really useful to know.

I did feel the 453RFE was a good deal until i did a proper look around as i was looking at the 459 instead, so i still bought it at the time ( but it's still sealed so i can return it), especially when i saw that for £10 more you could get the 456 with the 3ah battery anniversary edition. . I've held the 458, which is heavy, but still lighter than my Champion 18v that it's replacing. This is the most i've ever spend on a power tool, but feel that this is actually going to be supported with spares etc for a good 6 years yet, and as it's still only £20 more than the 453RFE i have already spent, but with a bigger battery, metal case, and "pro" bits it's a good buy.

Just hope the wife doesn't spot the difference now!

Ok, so I did a FluBit request and got an offer through of £150 for this. For reference, here's Amazon's link:
amazon.co.uk/Mak…1_1?ie=UTF8&qid=1388672738&sr=8-1&keywords=DHP456RMWX

I'll be renovating a property in a couple months so wonder whether its worth waiting to see if a better deal comes along for this or another decent 18V Li-on drill or go for this at £150. Decisions decisions.

No problem. 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

P.S. The wife may notice the slight colour change from blue/green to white!

Oh, interesting, i keep forgetting flubit. 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!

She'll probably notice the delivery to home more than the colour change

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 ;-)

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!

Anyone had theirs turn up yet? I've had a "your item has been dispatched" email
