Cracking tool

Can this be used for scaffolding? Please I'm looking for one for my husband

Cracking price.. Should go hot..

"You save £159.01" ..... Yeah, right !! Good bit of kit though but don't forget it's a bare unit, NO batteries or charger.

Not really you need different type

I'd disagree. This model has battery indicator so as long as it doesn't drop below 2 bars it will tighten up really well! I know of a couple of lads who use this for scaffolding.

​If it does it professionally he really needs an impact wrench not driver.

Like the previous poster says, yes - as long the battery is good. Saying that, it'll only be of use to him if he already has Makita batteries and a charger as they are not cheap to buy on their own, £100+ for a couple of batteries.

Ok thanks is there any impact wrench on offer

Yes, recommended torque for most fittings is 50Nm. This gun has max of 160Nm.

Id read this first though as some employers may have an issue with it. link

Any scaffolders ive known have used a Hilti.

£61 on Fastfix, or £58.75 on another site, so not a huge bargain...

Shame the batterys cost so much..

has been this price forever,great tool, but add around £25 and get the dtd129z , upgraded from 146 to that and what a difference.

You can build your own batteries if you're that way inclined. The main battery PCB is only a tenner...

Bought. Have a difficult job in mind which would cost £50 for an electrician to do for me (tried it already but some screws are very tight). This way I can do it myself and get a toy for only £10 extra. Thanks

I'm after an impact driver. I'm only a household DIY type of user. I have been pointed in the direction of screwfix for their own brand - but I have never not bought a brand. Is this worth the extra money or could I take the risk on a screwfix own?

​Where would one start :)?

I can't see a bargain here, it's sold without battery and charger!!

Remember and register on the Makita website for the 3yr warranty

Many people will own other makita tools and will have multiple batteries. I'm a casual DIY'er and have 2 batteries which are compatible with this.

Also for anyone living near East Kilbride this can be had for £57.46 at powertoolsuk.co.uk/mak…tml

I agree. I have the dtd129z - extremely powerful, battery lasts ages.

I mostly use Makita tools, however I can recommend the erbauer impact driver sold at screwfix for about £100 including batteries.
It's a strong piece of kit, well balanced and the battery lasts for a full day without letting you down (may last more, but I always recharged after a long day)
If you store it for a few weeks, the battery won't be flat.

£61 at ffx, how this went this hot amazes me lol

No battery?whattttt!

I've had 5 of the 'good quality' replicas and they do not last .. I'm a fairly heavy DIY user, would imagine they wouldn't last 3 months with daily abuse. On the plus side Amazon always replace/refund with no dramas so if you don't mind sending them back every once in a while why not :-)

dhp456 better value for a home user does what this does plus a drill.

they are 2 different things! I have the much better dhp458 as well and you simply can't compare a drill with an impact driver.

Very good price

Try driving a coach bolt, directly no pilot hole into a railway sleeper with your dhp456 and see how that goes

Bit late, not sure if any use still to you but ;

Have a look at the DeWalt 10.8v Twin Set, Drill/Driver & Impact Driver @ £155 delivered with 2 x 2.0Ah batteries, or £137 with 2 x 1.3Ah batteries

or the Makita 10.8v Twin Set, Combi Drill & Impact £130 delivered, 2 x 1.3Ah batteries.

Don't underestimate the power of the 10.8v impact, more than capable around the home.
the Makita combi is 'okay' on hammer action but don't expect much more than say 5.5mm holes in brickwork, again ample for around the home.

10.5V = only good for arts and crafts

Nonsense.

Have you used either of the 10.8v I've linked?

I've used both, and IMHO they are ample for the average DIYer around the home.

Yes, I have come across the 10.5v Makita.
They're very good to unscrew door handles, repair toys and put Ikea furniture together.
For anything else you need an 18v Makita.
