A proper LXT powered Makita drill can be bought for similar or less money.
A quick search turned up toolstation.com/sho…366 OR screwfix.com/p/m…86f I would buy either one over this any day.
Once you get into Makita tools you can just buy the bare item without a battery or charger because you'll already have them, They sell just about every tool you could want and they all will accept your LXT batteries.

The drill torque is only a feeble 42nm, part plastic gearbox and These …The drill torque is only a feeble 42nm, part plastic gearbox and These batteries are not compatible with any other makita tools and cannot be replaced /pay a little bit more for the LXT range, rather than this


Not true. I have the G series drill and use the battery to power an impact driver. Here’s a Link for all compatible tools. makitauk.com/pro…tml these drills are great for the average DIYer. Heat added.

Edit- I would suggest paying the extra and getting the impact driver Included for £150 though (if you’re ok with the G series and don’t need LXT)

Or just buy the LXT range rather than this makita part plastic gearing crap


Or not.... as I said, perfectly fine for the average DIYer, certainly not crap. I’ve used mine on many projects with no issues at all.

Yes I agree certainly not crap compared to some of the lower end aldi/Argos type drills and fairly useful for very light diy use but for £127 it's a lot of money and you're just buying into the name, as I said before you can get much better quality if you look around.
I bought this drill set from homebase in December when it was £75, I also used the 15% off promotion voucher when I bought it, so paid £63.75

Fair point. Just adding my experience really. I paid a lot less for this drill and picked up a compatible impact driver off eBay for £50 and with the money i speant have used the tools to board my loft, install decking and put in a utility room.

Not not everyone needs professional power tools and for the money I do think something like This represents good value. You’d pay a lot more for the LXT equivalent.
Looking for a drill myself have a corded sds drill bit bulky for any sort of light job. Wanted a decent combi drill around the house but getting lost in all these different drill deals and the comments.
