I’m a proud owner of one of these - great bit of kit. With a fine tooth blade it is unbeatable.

It really is a great piece of kit, pair it with a 5amp battery and it's a beast

I've had this drill for going on 5 years now. It's always been reliable. As a joiner I use it nearly everyday. The drill bits etc on the other hand are a waste of time.

The bpd-201 is £20 more at ts (£135), has 8Nm more torque (50 vs 42) and a 2Ah rather than 3Ah battery. Horses for courses but no accessories. If you’re not bothered by that (and I probably wouldn’t be) then the dewalt dcd795 is probably a better bet with 60Nm, 1.5Ah battery (but brushless which will approx offset the smaller capacity) and £120. Saying all that, I very rarely switch my makita 453 into gear 1 (for max torque), it’ll happily drive unpiloted 5mm screws in gear 2.

fubar888

It’s a good deal, and you should be happy with it. I’ve gone on to get an impact driver, strimmer and hedge trimmer (each £50-£60 bare) along with another 3ah battery. There’s a wealth of bare tools available at good prices which is one of the attractions of the makita lxt system. Dewalt and Bosch offer systems too (though not sure how extensive but the dewalt flexvolt kit is pretty impressive from what I’ve seen of the chainsaw and brush cutter).

But that's the point - in what way are these efficient? They have specs comparible with good 12v tools, but not the size or weight savings of a 12v tool. The only efficiency they could have is longer runtime, which can be gained back buy buying a higher cap battery. You're somehow agreeing and arguing with me at the same time. For the same or less money you can buy comparable spec (44nm combi /135nm impact) 12v tools with two 2ah batteries and a 6ah battery, if you want light and compact. Or if you want something the size of an 18v tool, on an 18v platform, you can buy more powerful tools with equal or more battery capacity. That just highlights how in this specific instance the brushless technology has no real term benefit and how poor the deal is- and if these weren't brushless no-one would give them a second look, but it's like the magic word at the minute.

Shinoke

It's subjective though, is a less efficient, heavier, but more powerful tool better than a specifically designed lighter duty, more efficient, less powerful, lighter tool? It's like saying the 18V tools are better than the 10.8V tools outright. But it doesn't look like you gain much weight loss for the loss of power with these - so they are an odd category I think.

deleted801301

No, my point was for less money you could buy better, and then the OP asked how a brushed tool could be better than a brushless one.

Shinoke

The ones you listed aren't great though - they're entry level for the LXT general purpose drills. And the brushless aspect is taken advantage of, for light duty efficient use. Haven't checked these drills but I believe they're lighter weight - although like I said, I do find the category a bit pointless.

Shinoke

Nah, your complaint seems to be that these are under powered but they're not meant to be compared with the 482 and 152, they're a different category. And the OP didn't say they're better or great because they're brushless. I doubt these drills would work as brushed - they're meant to be light duty and efficient.

How obnoxious can you be? Multi-cutters are quite a new thing. Not knowing what they are doesn't suddenly make you an amateur. I know several highly-skilled tradesmen that have no idea what they are.

Not really. I just saw the offer and lazily asked thinking this may be a multi tool. I know about door hinge jigs and routers. Plus we all have to start somewhere. Also i agree i would never route without a jig.

Thanks ordered last Friday and arrived today. Packaging is to be desired ... mine was in a box with some of that brown paper as a shield for bumps and thats it. The body looked a little 'dusty' but everything worked fine. Note that the battery took literally 20 minutes to charge to full as the charger chosen is a quick time charger ....

iamwhoiam

I'd say that the Erbauer is in a different category given its low end torque of 40Nm. Additionally it doesn't have the same build quality, reputation or cordless range that Makita does. That's judging by the comments in this thread: https://community.screwfix.com/threads/dewalt-vs-makita-vs-erbauer.121606/

dealcracker2014

My drill came in OEM packaging. Most body-only drills do. So that's not unusual. There was dust around the rubber but I think they just get stored in a dirty warehouse. I took the brush cap off and the motor and brushes were definitely not used. Neither was the chuck. I bought a genuine Makita battery off Amazon and similar OEM packaging. Where the drill is... probably should be directed at the company! By the way, they didn't automatically email me a tracking number but supplied one upon request.

I own one of these. Good and very powerful bit of kit and it doesn’t destroy the battery which was surprising lol. However, it’ll be wise to invest in the larger base to it as it can be very difficult to keep it flat with the small base that it comes with (y) be warned: buying this makes it mighty tempting to buy an expensive router bit set!

Its normal to have odditities here and there with ALL makes. That`s why you have warranty right? Its after the warranty period that matters - not before! as in your freinds case. Batteries are not under warranty unless they explode or fail - Batteries need to be maintained for all makes.

My cousin's dad completely hammered his DeWalt and replaced it with a Hitachi which lasted less than 2 years before battery lost charge and the trigger started failing.

It depends on how much you're planning on using it. If it's only occasional use for cutting the odd bolt off, then I would say no. But if it's going to be used more often, and for longer periods of time, then yes. Brushless would make your batteries last longer.

Got to admit it's pretty compact, which might make it worth considering for certain applications. Not so much the weight difference as you can gain or lose that depending what size battery you have on. I'd still opt for the better cheaper model as a second drill though personally, unless the short length was a requirement.

Wouldn’t contest that mate, but I’ve got the BHP451 drill and BTD140 impact driver from Makita’s original LXT line up. This is a nice little (smaller 30mm and lighter 300g than the 482) addition if you need an extra drill driver to save on bit changes. Wouldn’t recommend this as an only drill.
