Great price for a powerful Mikita brushless combi drill. Bare unit only obviously. A good £40-50 cheaper than elsewhere. Full spec: http://www.makita.co.nz/products/model/DHP480 … Read more

It is tempting to go for the Screwfix one, as the charge and battery are £95 on there own (I doubt the difference between 4ah and 3ah battery will matter much to me). However, my last Makita Drill/Driver lasted me a decade, still tempted to go for the Brushless DHP480, its also a bit lighter.

But what do I do, just grab the separate components. Or grab the DHP480 plus the screw fix bundle. £25 more expensive, 3ah battery. But I get a spare body (is it worth much, as I likely won't use it if its heavier then the 480) and case.

btw the new BL one has twice the torque of this, but is about 130

for the drill charger, I think it's nearly worth buying the screwfix exclusive white drill for 120 as the 3ah batt is about 60 the charger 36 blowmoulded case 15 so you get the drill for a tenner.

Apparently this will be my Fathers day pressie but having to do the research and picking myself :)Also will the battery the OP has listed work with their lighter bodies also? Ideally want a light body for general DIY and a heavy duty one so I don't have to faff around with the corded drill/running an extension/etc. My previous cheap NiCd Makita is finally giving up the ghost and the Mrs is at a loss what to get for Fathers day (my first one :)) so thought that was a good sign as to what to get me. Guess it will also put a stop to the complaining about my tools when a job needs doing.


They were selling as low as £66.99 back in March 2015. Now at £99.95 on ebay oO
Don't get me wrong it's a lot of drill for the money and I nearly went for it as I already have batteries and charger from other units. Still tempted even at this price. This will be good as a drill driver and should suit most DIY tasks.

BUT they are are a great fashion item on most building sites, even more so if you wear the matching clothes and PPE.

Not a bargain at all, I got my Makita from ScrewFix for a similar price with a single 3ma Li-lon battery (less weight), and 120 piece good quality bit set. Its been exceptional. It has in fact put 99% of Alton Towers Terror Of The Towers audio/Visual in place and still like new. Dewalt are great drills too but you need to wait for the right deal to come up, You will always pay over the odds for them and this deal just doesn't cut it.

I own a dewalt 18v the older version with chunky battery for last 7 years, survived heavy diy jobs. it is still good working tool and surprise surprise still the same batteries maybe because I look after them a lot...
2 years ago I bought my dream Makita LXT from screwfix for my father- as occasional DIYer he managed to kill 1 gear on that famous Makita, so only 2nd gear u can use. maybe only personal experience but ->
I am gonna stay with dewalt....

I've had a dewalt for a few years... Not impressed compared to the Wickes own brand one I had when I got the dewalt...
I'm not kidding either...
Within months of owning the dewalt, it needed a new gearbox after the hammer action failed. Then it happened again after 11 months.
Still works now, but both batteries fairly short life, and the motor has started sparking and smells pretty bad.

The wickes drill on the other hand, helped me build half my first house, was dropped down two flights of stairs, still holds a good charge, still 'hammers', and has never had a single fault, apart form a broken battery clip on its rapid descent down my stairs. Cable ties now hold it in place.

I've dropped a hint to the Mrs for a new drill for Christmas, but told her to avoid the dewalt, I'd rather have a top end wickes own brand. Or maybe a Makita, never had one of those...

Not voting, as this IS a good price for one of these, but don't buy one thinking you are getting a cheap pro level tool. You are getting a cheap tool with a pro name on it.

My Aldi drill is great at drilling holes

Comments I have read elsewhere indicate that this is much better than the Halfords one - but the metal is still a bit on the thin side.

It might be because they're not Li-Ion, although they are large capacity batteries. Also it is another 20% off weekend at B&Q from tomorrow, so there may be a decent drill deal to be had there with that discount.

This is a good price for this model not sure why people are voting cold. Is it because it's not a £99 B&Q DIY offer ?

To be honest if you haven't put any treatment down then I would go with the oil myself as well as it penetrates into the wood. This stain is more like a paint and sits on the surface of the wood, it looks great when its done but over the winter it peels/flakes away and you are left with a clean up job and having to do it every year.

For those who already use it though its a decent price......

Love the Makita use it at work all the time, the charge lasts the whole 10 hour shift normally (obviously depends what the task is). The case we have for them is a bit stupid though, not easy to carry designed to be stacked. The bosch seems like a good deal as well though, hot.

good drill and has been posted on here ,
but it's a combi drill and is 50% heavier than the bosch.

a small light drill/driver is needed for fitting units all day etc.

Nice, quality tool. Personally, I prefer something with a bit more power, but for most tasks this would be a fine tool to have. :thumbsup: Most of my tools come from the Bosch blue range and work brilliantly.
