Posted 10th Jun
3Ah Battery is worth - £39.95
Charger - £29.95
Case - around £10

So with £80 of accessories getting the drill for £20 or so, a great starter kit for someone who wants to get some bigger batteries later, and a great middle of the range drill. I know there are other Makita deals around, some of which I posted, so this is just another choice that may suit someone with the single 3Ah battery!

The DHP482 is one of our best selling cordless combi drills packed full of features and is supplied here in anniversary colour black and white. It is a mid-range, well balanced combi featuring a variable speed trigger with forward and reverse and an impressive maximum torque of 62Nm. The 2 speed gearbox has metal gears and an electric brake stops rotation almost immediately once the trigger is released.

Twin LED lights illuminate the work area and a single sleeve, easy grip 13mm keyless chuck allows for rapid bit change. Drilling capacities are Ø13mm in masonry and steel, Ø38mm in wood and a 21 stage torque setting allows for accurate screwdriving in both high and low gear.

Being part of the Makita Lithium-Ion family it can accept all 18v Li-Ion batteries and incorporates a battery protection circuit to prevent overload and overheating. A rubber moulded handle gives better grip and reduces vibration and a handy belt clip can be fitted both left and right handed. This tool is eligible for the Makita 3 year warranty which requires registration within 30 days of purchase.

OP, you want people to decide, but seem to have an issue when people are clear about other options or opinions.

Based on the reasonable and sensible comments, there seem to be good alternatives to your deal.

AND how many other people put the same amount of effort in to try and help others? Yes I know some do but just making a point as there are lazy cutters and pasters around!


People aren't knocking your deal, a poster mentioned that the charger with this drill is slow this could be a deal breaker for some especially if you only have one battery. I have just read back through the thread and I can't see any trashing going on only people trying to be helpful. If I was thinking about buying this drill then I would want to know other people's views to make sure I'm making an informed decision.
If you don't mind a bag instead of a case, the deal at ITS is cheaper and includes the fast charger

Yes and that is reflected in the price I quoted for it, I don't understand how people want something for nothing, its a bargain deal so someone may not mind waiting for their battery to charge plus it comes with a bigger one anyway, here are the charging times:

See the post on charging times, note this is the 3Ah battery so will give you a lot more time than the 2Ah, you can also choose to buy bigger batteries if you wish, this is a bargain price for someone who just wants it for what out is, there is no pleasing some people, as I said there is a choice on the forum at the moment so not fair to knock a deal as it may be just what someone wants, how about some positivity!

If you think you will be screwing for hours and hours just get some more batteries

Who says? its personal choice, let the people decide, the options are all laid out for them, if it were me I would have absolutely no interest in a case, some people get turned on by cases and liners, live and let live, some people don't mind slower charging and may argue its better for your battery, all personal preference

It's a different drill and £5 less to get a retailers bag rather than the original Makita box, hmmm, let the people decide

What I don't understand is why people come and slate others deals when the can't be bothered to post their own, if you find deals so great surely you should be sharing them!

Easy to sell the case... For the size makpac you'll get £25/30.
Or above the cheaper deal with a bag 😁
Fast charger and 2 x 2ah batteries would be the better buy I think. You could have one battery on charge whilst using the other.

it's the DHP482, i.e. the exact same drill as this....

don't forget it includes the fast charger and is cheaper

been a few threads on it that got super hot, I should know I bought one
Makitas absolute USP, beyond the massive range of bare units availible, is the fast charging of their batteries. Sadly this set does not deliver on that. Will be fine for many however

All the comments you got were positive, polite, and respectable. Not negative. Just different alternatives to your deal. Helpful, even.

If you post a deal, and it's not great, the comments are there to point that out and maybe offer alternatives.

That's a good thing, by the way. If you are looking to post a deal and expect comments to just agree with you, then you may be in the wrong place.

What I don't understand is how some people suddenly find deals that they state are better but too lazy to post them up in the first place, seems they just sit back waiting to criticise others who do make make an effort

No 1 - I bought this and have 3 SDS drills
N0 2 - You can't use only 1 battery on an SDS drill, its states 2 x 3Ah, 2 x 4Ah or 2 x 5Ah, I understand after speaking to a dealer today that you CAN use a 6Ah apparently when they wrote the instructions the 6Ah were not available at that time, I was also told you could not use 2 Ah batteries but haven't tried or spoken to anyone else about it, just going on what I was told.
N0 - 3 Instead of having two small pretty useless 2Ah batteries (no good for commercial work) this deal gives you the option to purchase another 3Ah battery or even bigger, therefore having more use of them in other products. As I said its all down to personal choice, for someone pottering around their home this would be fine.
Zaxxan10/06/2020 16:22

This is probably a good deal if you only have a budget of £100


And believe me there are people who are trying to save money or struggling in this current climate, hence me posting the deal.
Not quite sure of the big reply but I would think that people buying this would be using it for DIY so it is more than capable and 2ah batteries would be ideal, light weight and the ability to use one battery and charge another. Pros and cons I suppose

I don't think that's quite what is happening.
A deal gets posted, usually because someone is looking around for something they need.
They find a deal, think its good, and share it.
Other people then look at it, and add some more detail or information, mainly if it is a good deal or not. Maybe suggest alternatives.

This collective knowledge is shared for the community. Everyone benefits.
Sure, you get some trouble makers, but I don't think that can be said of onyone on this particular thread.
