Good price if you have prime.

If you don't have prime and don't mind a white version of this its the same price on ebay here
ebay.co.uk/itm…m9X

Decent basic drill for light DIY use if you have the batteries and charger.

Maybe it’s just me but I’d prefer the security of buying from the like of Amazon over random eBay seller. I know PayPal offers some protection but still
This is body only without battery. Good for someone who either has spare battery or just want the body replaced
Wow great price! I already have the DHP459 but trying to convince myself I need to upgrade to this :-p

Not sure what security you’re after but each to their own. Hardly random with over 52,000 feedback and 100% positive feedback. In fact Paypal probably offers more protection than paying with a debit card!
Thanks OP, ordered

no real appreciable difference between the two, you'll get a little bit more torque and a bit less runtime. I'm running the 482 at the moment (paid £44, no real regrets), the chuck's nothing special but it's still pretty fun and put a load of 6x50mm screws in hard over the weekend. If you need wristbreaking torque or something there's the 458 at 88NM which is usually around £80, or you could get a cheap impact driver (dtd152's decent around £40).

Where have you found the dtd152z for £40 please?
Any deals on batteries about?...

Amazon's price seems to be jumping all over the place lately, well worth having a little patience and keeping your eye on it.
That's just the 3ah mind you, hoping some of the bigger ones may go cheaper sometime soon.

it's currently £55.95and hasn't been below £50 July (and that was only £48.99)
Awesome deal! I spent £58 literally a few weeks ago on ebay for one ... needed it in a jiffy Was a replacement as original one broke ... Reason .. my fault drilled too many brick walls ..

Awesome drill has 2 power modes (1 and 2) and torque setting for the Screw mode ... 3 modes Screw, Hammer and Drill ... also is has one of those sensitive triggers ... so the harder you push it the faster it goes ... if that makes sense? Also when you push the trigger a little light comes on ...

Awesome Drill ... Great for general DIY and more .... not the most powerful but by far now the least powerful ... IMO sits above average ... Worthwhile esp at this price and esp if you already have a charger and Battery

Thanks for this. It was a toss up between makita and Ryobi, but Ryobi pricing just isn't budget anymore and it's hard to find a bad word spoke about makita.
Glad to know it was the right choice.

A lot of them came up around £35-45 on ebay right after amazon were doing their "Makita DTD152Z 18V Li-ion Cordless Impact Driver with 1 x 5.0Ah BL1850 Battery " for £68.99 deal there's bare ones going at £52, or £48 for a refurb right now - sorry for posting time machine prices without actually checking first! I assumed they'd still be going cheap.

no worries. I was just clarifying for the thread. Probably didn't come off as friendly as I meant to!
Are all Makita batteries the same size?
chridt25/02/2020 21:04

Are all Makita batteries the same size?


Hi chridt. If you're not talking about older batteries, there's currently 2 types (though anyone me if I'm wrong) cxt 12v and lxt 18v, you'll be wanting the lxt's for this.
You can find more info here:

No need to apologise, your holiness!

@chridt, the LXT batteries are similar sizes, 1.5/2ah are shorter and 3/4/5+ah ones are taller but it's the same socket interface for the tools on 'em. CXT is the smaller 10.8v range of gear, won't fit this drill.
I was considering the Dewalt DCD796N, does anyone know how this compares?

No hands on experience, but I've done a fair bit of research and DeWalt Vs Makita is one of those age old things that really is just horses for courses.
From the specs the DeWalt you've mentioned above is better to compare to the Makita 848Z, but you'd be paying nearly twice as much for either of them.
This isn’t a brushless drill, for anyone wondering. I had to look it up.
To the more knowledgeable, does it matter if it’s brushless or not? I’m under the impression brushless is the way to go, however that may have changed.

prime is a con. in December, next day turns into 2 or 3 day delivery, they missed 30% of next day deliveries for me in 2019. I have several echo dots since like 2016 and in those days you could listen to anything, and simultaenously on multiple echo devices then it became one device at at a time .. then it became oh sorry that song is not available with prime, sign up to music and pay £15 a month for it. They even put adverts in prime video streams too now.

You can often find the thing you want, at the same price on eBay with free delivery too. So why pay them £80 a year for that ?

Hi Roop, yep brushless is undoubtedly better, but you pay for it. Most of the benefits are found in power efficiency which a DIYer is unlikely to notice. They also claim longevity but I'm still using a 10 year old brushed drill that's going strong, so make your own decision on that one.

Thanks for your reply, much appreciated.

Taking into account that I would have to purchase batteries & a charger, it would work out around the same price as the DeWalt DCD796 package from Toolstation. The batteries supplied with the DeWalt are however 2ah as opposed to the 3ah that I would purchase for the Makita but the drill itself is brushless. Decisions decisions...

Thanks again for your reply & also for posting this deal.

Prefer Amazon as well as there's no problem returning and delivery is quick...i paid a fiver more for my Dewalt from Amazon as some of the other well known tool sellers got mixed reviews on delivery times and buyers complaining about being sent returned/used items or claiming they had stock when they did not.

Thanks.
Voted hot! I expect more 18v brushed lxt deals in the coming weeks. Makita are releasing a 40v line very soon. Hopefully more bargains to be had 🔥

I hope you're right but, I think it more likely that this is just due to overstocking of this particular model as Makita will continue with the LXT range - extracts below from press releases.

The 40V is aimed at Industrial use.
' Makita have announced a launch of the 40V max XGT™, a new standalone cordless system in 2020. 40V Max XGT is engineered for select higher-demand applications and although the 40V max XGT batteries look similar in size to 18V LXT batteries, XGT is a completely new system with its own tools, equipment, batteries, and chargers. Innovative tool design and higher output from the batteries means a practical solution for those users with industrial tasks with a higher demand.'

The 18V range will continue to expand
'Makita’s 18V ‘LXT’ range currently has over 200-products that are meeting demands across a wide range of applications. Makita will continue to invest heavily in the 18V LXT system, with more new products planned to ensure continued support for customers who have already invested into the 18v ‘LXT’ platform.'
Ordered! Thanks for posting
For anyone wondering. Brushes are a few quid and can be easily changed .
