Got the new Makita lithium ion driver/drill on the porch Monday …
started a kitchen demo on Wed … existing cab’s to be given a new home somewhere else … so all had to be unscrewed and saved.
Pretty good work out for a new cordless drill.
It’s pricey … I paid $309+ …. but so far … I really like it.
good balance … all day comfort grip.
the batt’s came holding a charge … first one lasted close to 8 hrs.
I swapped out and loaded the second to finish the day.
got home … put the run down one in the charger … and it lasted the whole second day. I didn’t run the drill all day/both days … unscrewed then had to stock their garage … and I also didn’t work the drills hard as unscrewing is easier than screwing … but I’d say they got a fair work out.
I’m impressed so far.
The drill has 2 goofy little lights I’d have ax’d if I was on the design team. They come on when U pull the trigger … found myself appreciating them when burying my head into the back of a deep cab. It’s a feature I like now.
Gotta have the drill pay for itself first .. then I’ll move on to the cir saw.
