This is one of the lowest on the Makita range (see link, not on the list but lowest torque) and the 101 piece kit is generally very good. This would be an excellent drill for most light DIY jobs, drilling on hammer could take a bit longer than the higher spec. drills and bit heavier. But the LXT batteries are really excellent and I had a cheaper Makita drill that did me really well. I'm a big Makita fan and for £106.25 this is an excellent buy. Heat.
So it holds its value good.
Makita are a good brand on par with DeWalt. Many tradesmen have a preference one way or another but both are good brands. This I believe is not the metal gearbox brush less one, but it's a brilliant bit of kit, I have one and only the hammer drill let's it down, but to be fair I have not used anything that was not an sds or corded that was any good at drilling strong masonry. This is pro consumer rather than full pro drill for a trade person but shares the same batteries and charger so you can easily add to your collection. I have battered mine and it's still going strong, and surprisingly fast to charge. The included bits are average but perfectly usable and the case is robust. I have not checked the prices of other deals so cannot comment more than I think I paid £120 for this 3 odd years ago.
Better buy DHP484 for £120 from ITS
I would see ehi h model is newer and go for the newer models, as they'll have more power

Can a mod change the title of this so it says 'TRADE ONLY'?
my bad sorry. i logged in and bought. i do have a trade account.
Anyone that has a business or a friend who has an account with them can buy, selco do not sell to the general public, trade only.
Can you kindly elaborate. Cheers
How good is this drill compared to the worx one with 2 x 4.0ah batteries for £79.99 delivered on ebay?
Can get 3rd party batteries for maklta too. Would not advise as there is a lot of "tech" in the genuine battery packs to protect both the cells and the appliance. These brushless drills have fantastic battery life. I thought I'd need a spare but 1x4Ah seems to go all day and charger is v fast if needed.
code ITSTOM as posted by @mikeyjoe1 gets you ITS mug, wallet warrior multitool plier
Im in a similar predicament. From what i can see they are both top of the general / all purpose use category before you get into the heavy duty range. I'm personally swaying towards Makita for the 3 year warranty as these dewalts only get a 1 year warranty. Although having said that there are some 3rd party batteries for the Dewalts that are very cheap.
Seems a great deal. If you look on EBay the drill is about £80 on its own.
The free drill bits even include the 7mm that is so often missing!! Can’t seem to add both codes though. M25 for the free drill bits but can’t then add the ITSTOM for the free goodie bag.
Yes there is, zoom in on the pic you can see the hammer on the collar
Be careful. I don't think this is the Makita DK1486W set as that model includes an LED torch. For comparison it looks like the Makita DK1493W. Still looks like a good price for that model without the torch.
I have had this set for years and it's good, but has been superseded by the 10.8v CXT range. If you need something small I'd look at the CXT range. https://www.diy.com/departments/makita-cxt-2ah-li-ion-combi-drill-impact-driver-twin-kit-2-clx202aj/1520333_BQ.prd If it's going to be your only drill, I'd look at the 18v LXT kit.
Been this price for ages. Still waiting to drop a bit more
My Bad. Post removed (y)
The drill battery at Robert Dyas is only 1.5ah, this one is 2.0ah
Just picked one up, and unless they have gave me the wrong one I can confirm it is a hammer drill. Dont know how good a hammer drill but for £30 I’m not complaining.
Concrete wall or plastered brick wall? If its a concrete wall then I very much doubt this would do the job. A plastered brick wall it should be fine so long as you get decent masonry bits. A hammer drill would be better though. For concrete, someting like this would be ok for the same budget. https://www.screwfix.com/p/energer-enb465drh-4-1kg-corded-sds-plus-drill-230-240v/63303?tc=QT4&ds_kid=92700022885040606&gclsrc=aw.ds&ds_rl=1241687&ds_rl=1245250&ds_rl=1244066&gclid=Cj0KCQiAw5_fBRCSARIsAGodhk9nzgPMyZplyPjkpwr91uTBRxndufCIWsPVgRhyHENDuAGzG8f-Dx0aAjosEALw_wcB
does the battery have the same fitting as worx products?
Depends on the type of concrete and how good the drill bits are
Yeah, I suppose its not too bad if its three years old model. But brushless is way better.
Pretty old being about 3 years? I'm no drill expert but that's not exactly old is it? Sure there are newer models. There always will be, but drill technology isn't advancing so fast as to call a 3 year old model old, is it?
I've purchased and sold many part used tools. Never a problem with any. I've had all 5 star reviews from my buyers. Warranties never last long enough. Two or three years ain't great. Then again, Makita isn't great on lasting a lengthy period of time, so a warranty could do you with a Makita.
Like I said, part used. You can absolutely tell the condition of the drill. How much wear and tear. Put a battery on it, and you can test it with a concrete drill bit, then and there.
Ok and how about the warranty? Who knows what kind of abuse a drill has had in the hands of a professional. I'm not sure your suggestion is a very good one.
Amazon or eBay then type of ones are not included
Fantastic deal, just as I am looking for a leaf blower to add to my DeWalt kit. The DeWalt T&C say "participating retailers" of which there is no list. The blower is cheaper on Amazon (sold, and fulfilled by them) so do we think that'll count? They specifically exclude third-party sellers so there's an inference that Amazon direct is OK.
That's great! I've just unexpired the deal, looks like a cracking bargain to get the drill for free.
The OP was right I’ve bought the blower and it qualifies for the promotion
Sure you can find it cheaper?
this was a great price. Gutted i missed it but went for the same although with 4ah batteries for £250. Not had a impact driver before so looking forward to using it.
Out of stock.
I bought this kit when it was on offer at Amazon last year for £250 which was a great offer then.. Anyone who's after a great drill set should buy this, it's the best drill I've owned..
On the recent Ebay 15% off code I got these 2 for £290 which is the same combination as above but with an extra 4AH battery, charger and case. Looking on youtube they look like impressive bits of kit. Dewalt DCD996P2 18V XR 3-Speed Brushless Hammer Combi Drill with 2 x 5.0Ah Batts DeWalt DCF887M1-GB 18v 1x4.0Ah Li-ion Brushless G2 3 Speed Impact Driver
no. just no.
This is a good manufacturer. If you are a hobbyist , or a first-time home owner, or this is your first cordless drill, then this is a good buy. Maybe you will be doing framing or decking or something that needs 'wallop' and newtons of torque and you will have to upgrade one day. But these will always be there, for the domestic stuff, the everyday stuff. COCo
How about this one, DHP482RF 18v LXT combi hammer drill, 1x 3.0ah battery, charger and case. Comes to £116 with the voucher. Looks similar to the white version sold at Screwfix for £140.
Ok, so for those who are saying to go for an LXT instead, can anyone recommend a good deal on a LXT drill, battery, and charger? I see plenty of deals on bare units but not so much on a complete set.
Bored now, sorry (lol)
I never said I'm selling it. For £47 you get an extra 2ah battery worth £28, a brushless motor, metal quality chuck, longer run time. If you want to sell it then you are paying £25 more for a much better drill. Simple.
So after all that you are keeping it, back to my original point, it’s 44% more expensive so not nearly like for like. Unless you are a heavy trade user 1 x 4ah battery is all you’ll ever need.
I sell a few things on eBay. It's very easy. Also there is £1 fvf this weekend. It's not second hand as not used and box sealed. I think I'd get £25 of eBay for it. But I'm going to keep it as it will come in use for light work. Will probably get another 4ah to go with the impact driver.
You won’t get £25. Also it has nothing to do with the tool on offer. So now you have to wait until you find an offer of low fees off eBay, you have to find someone who will pay almost the same for a second hand battery as a new one, you have to find someone who wants a small battery (most buying a second battery will want and upgrade not a downgrade) you will have to post it, you will have all of the hassle of the above. You can’t compare these two at all. If that was the case you could buy a top brand multi tool kit with 6 or 7 items. Wait until there is a good deal and split them all up. If you could get 88% of the original cost of the items separately you could end up with a free drill............ but it’s a ball ache to do.
Yes, but it’s not a dealbreaker. If it’s a place where you need light, you’re better off with a headlight or a real torch anyway. I have this drill (without the bluetooth and I love it)
Not sold on the Bluetooth feature. Just more reason to hike the price. You can pick up a decent milwaukee drill for 79.99. Which I did 😁
Yeah... And it only has one key. (:I (Hot btw)
that much torque can't be good for its longevity.
Anyone found a spare battery at a reasonable price?
Bargain for a combi.
great price, I've not seen one cheaper. even the small 10.8v ones
Good spot. Good price. Heated.
Compatible with WORX/Guild/Titan batteries and chargers too - Positec. Impact driver 120nm - not the best but OK.
+1, had these a couple of years, awesome bits of kit.
Haven't got these but I have some Erbauer tools and can't fault them. And if memory serves me right they come with a two year warranty.
Agreed. Same here never let me down in last 2-3 years. Extra batteries not too expensive neither.
It was hull only
its not out of stock they have never ever stocked it in doncaster
Out of stock
I am not sure the employee was HUKD member....
I got most of my makita kit cheap from wickes clearances in the past their stock system is junk though I think Diane Abbot may have been involved in its creation. good luck to whoever gets there first.
230V Makita tools for £20 include: Jigsaw, 720W (stocked in Boston, Burton on-Trent & Swansea) www.wickes.co.uk/Makita-4350CT-Orbital-Action-Jigsaw---720W/p/100046 SDS drill, 800W (stocked in Wimbledon, Sutton, Slough & Glasgow) www.wickes.co.uk/Makita-HR2611FT-SDS%2B-Rotary-Hammer-Drill-110V---800W/p/104244
Considering Wickes stock the batteries for these at £49.99 each, these packs would be pretty cheap
And when you get there?? Oh sorry can't find it!! Worth a go if you live nearby.
But not like a tesco deal. It actually shows which store has them.
Any discount codes
It manages for small and shallow holes, but if you're drilling to any considerable depth or size you're still going to need an SDS drill
Can I ask how well it copes with drilling into brick please? Thanks
bought this last time it came on - good kit and worthwhile though it comes on quite regularly at this price
So they don’t always have better deals and aren’t cheaper... maybe checking before peeing on pennytraders bonfire 🔥 would be kinder
