453 with 2 3ah batteries charger and case is still 129.99 at screwfix



​The 453 is a DIY level drill. This is a professional drill with double the torque. Mine also came with 2 batteries. After cashback I got it for 155. Well worth spending 25 quid more for a beast.

453 with 2 3ah batteries charger and case is still 129.99 at screwfix

Mine came in a 3 battery case. When I opened it there were two batteries in mine and not one as in description. Anyone else experience that?

Hi nipstyler
to answer your questions the weight for me is fine 2.3Kg which is just over 5 1/2 pounds it is a all metal chuck and it has metal gears as well so quite heavy and robust its a case of stronger machine requires stronger components so as to be longer lasting and for me the quality and durability out weight the weight of the drill.
The battery is the newer BL 1830B which has the four display lights on the back . It all depends on if you want or need a heavy duty durable drill and not forgetting the 3 year warranty (on the drill only, for which you need to register on the Makita web site.) As I say the weight for me is a small price to pay for such a durable robust drill.
Both screwfix and toolstation do their own version of this drill you could go and check out the weight there.

cedewriter

the Charger I got with the kit is a DC18RC COMPACT CHARGER


What do you think about the weight? I'm in two minds about this
also is the battery one of the newer BL1830B with battery indicator or is it marked BL1830?

Many thanks

Designed for impact drivers, so stronger than the normal set that often appears on hukd, and this is cheaper.

No. Work just the same. Just stronger and you could get by with cheaper ones.

I think it's the colour scheme personally

Yep I agree on the larger capacity batteries, just when I was looking I decided that if the Hitachi needed a new battery I could almost but I new drill with 2 batteries at that price, which takes the mick abit really, each to their own, I like the Ryobi colour scheme

That Hitachi drill looks good until you see the price of spare batteries! … That Hitachi drill looks good until you see the price of spare batteries! The Ryobi is overall better value in my opinion, 50nm torque!



I have 2 reasons why to choose the Hitachi over the Ryobi, the first being that the Hitachi batteries have a bigger Ah meaning they last for longer between charges, and the second being that if they aren't using Dewalt or Makita then all the tradesmen I've seen or used are using Hitachi drills.

I've never seen a professional tradesman turn up with a Ryobi drill, and there has to be a reason other than they didn't really like the Ryobi colour scheme

Fair point but I don't have any other Makita kit (and don't intend to) and for basic home DIY it really makes no difference to me between 1.3Ah and 1.5Ah - especially as there are 2 batteries in the kit!

Personal choice I guess...

The first gen comments did worry me a bit, but then the money question crops up - I thought it comes with warranty whats the worst...

That about half the first box (1K) of nails done and this things has not skipped a beat, the punch it has drives through pretty much anything and everything 70 and 90s not been a problem not misfired, jammed or anything so far. I have got to say I am pretty darn impressed with it.

Its louder than the im350, but it is lighter too and has a better hanging fixing, the only comment I have is that it goes into sleep mode and shuts down if left alone for about 40 mins, and you have to pop the battery in and out to rewake it, but I guess the benefits for that outweigh battery life.

I searched on here before buying, didn't find anything other than DIY electric tack guns so I thought I got a deal might benefit someone else! Shame its gone cold, like I said it wasn't for everyone but I guess the premise that this is a deal by over £100 on the price ordered next day from screwfix perhaps isn't clear enough.

For sure I'd love to go by the orange one, but then its nearly twice the price and hard to justify for my needs and given it has just now saved me two days of additional labour its paid for itself handsomely.

I would like to get one but I'm old skool so I'll have to carry on with my.........

I had the first generation gun from Hitachi and had so many problems with it, had to send it back for a refund eventually. Spoke to a few other carpenters on site and they didn't rate it either. Not sure if the second Gen is better but after my experience I wouldn't trust it.
I agree about the comment on the paslode im350 had a few of them over the years, from my experience the best one is the makita ' had one for nearly 2 years now and not a single issue

Monitored alarms arent as expensive as you may think it you can stomach the monthly fees. ADT are from £99 installed (nb. for £99 you get more kit than this Yale alarm). Downside is you pay £15-25 /month for moniting but at least you are better protected.



Why are they a waste of time? I have the model that rings upto 3 numbers should the alarm be triggered, why is that any different than paying a monitoring fee (£25 pm?) only for them to ring you to tell you your alarm has been activated!!!!
Im sorry, but i totally disagree with anyone that says a DIY alarm kit is a waste of money. Its a deterrent...and if a deterrent works, then its got to be worth £150 'ish.
