Found 17th Feb
Best price by far for the dtd154z. According to ukcamel it’s cheapest has been £116 on Amazon.
This version is brushless and has the 3 sped mode for driving.
Note this is a bare driver with no battery or charger.

I have just bought the 18v set with this driver included.

Its Makitas proper top end kit, and is bloody fantastic.

Yeah was looking at the dtd153z and for this price went for the dtd154z. Really like there tools. I have just bought the 18v orbit
Sander which is ok but feel it lacks a bit of power.

Edit.

Sorry didn’t realise already posted

I might sell my 153z as i fancy the speed control. Heat added
Was that an Elton Jonhs song
Got this driver.

But do wonder if I should have got the DTD170 from Japan, to go all out:
ebay.co.uk/itm…467

Not sure what customs would add.

And I guess no warranty.

Half the price of the UK though, and you'll get a Japan made model.

My DTD154 is made in China

Thanks, much agree . I am temped even factor the add on customs fee. Japan made is highly praised, in fact a lot of Japan electrical models/products only sell on homeland (they just don't want to sell them to outsider).

But what about the battery and the charger, could I buy the UK stocks? Thanks
Yes, this driver and the one I gave the link to both use the normal Makita LXT batteries.
So just use the normal Makita 18V charger and batteries for whichever you get.

It can work out best value often to get a combi drill set - with charger and batteries if you don't have one already, especially if you want the higher capacity batteries (which weigh no more).

So 3Ah, 4Ah, 5Ah, 6Ah all pretty much weigh the same (officially they do, in reality about 5 grams difference).

Only the 2Ah weigh less.

So I got the DHP484 set with charger and two 5Ah batteries.

And bought the DTD154 this deal is for separate - bare unit too - so the DTD154z (the z means a bare unit - no batteries).

google.co.uk/sea…hop
This is also a good way to get batteries and a charger, if you have the drills already or don't want to get a drill set:
ffx.co.uk/too…Kit
I recently, last two weeks brought DLX2180TJ, from fast fix and they swapped out the impact driver to this, plus changed the charger to a dual for me (I paid extra) as I was buying into the X2 system so wanted to be able to charge both batteries at once


Hats off to the company, good service and lowest prices I could find around

How much will the import duty and tax be?
I’m assuming they don’t pre pay the duty so does that mean a parcel force handing fee?
Does look a good price, is that the oil drive
One?

FYI anyone from Kent ? FFX tools are hosting a tool show at deltling show ground next week end. Tickets are free and looks like makita tools will be there.
Any good top end drill sets out there for a good price?
Excellent body and price (paid £115 for mine from Tools4Trade). The extra T-mode comes in handy and i personally find the body balances well with 2ah battery vs a 4ah or larger capacity. The only issue with using a 2ah is you have to remove the belt loop if you want to sit the drill flat on the battery.

Regarding the made in Japan is better than ........ I’m on the fence on this one and willing to be educated. I have a good few makita tools and for example I have a bhp451 made in 2008 that says japan (doesn’t mention made in Japan) and I have month old dbo180 sander which says makita Belgium but made in the UK.
Both feels good quality items.
Reading the two links below what I take away is no matter where in the world they are made they have to adhere to makita standards as it’s basically the same materials being put together by another county. Also like my sander says not all tools are made in all factory’s.
Just my two penny’s worth.

I would tend to agree with this although if i was to be presented with two identical versions of the same tool all other things equal (one from Japan and one from China) I would select the made in Japan one as others are likely to prefer that if i was to sell on. I have had a lot of Makita stuff that wasn't from Japan and it seems to have been well made. I have heard that the Japanese bit holders are a slightly different size and UK bits will have some play. Can anyone confirm this please?
Thanks op, couldn’t resist but to get one !

It's probably split from a pack. I wouldn't worry about it, it's fairly common practice. I've had drills and batteries arrive the same way from other sellers, they're just taking a kit and selling all the components separately.

It's plausible- they could be metric in Japan rather than the imperial UK ones. I know they do both 1/2" and 12mm routers, depending on the market (though that's probably just a different collet). But the metric counterpart of 1/4" tends to be 6mm (rather than the direct equivalent of 6.35mm), which would mean a 1/4" bit wouldn't fit at all, rather than having play. So I don't know. Definitely worth looking into though before you take the plunge.
