The Makita is a surprisingly small machine, though stands on an enormous 3.3Ah battery. It’s also supplied with a smaller, and lighter, 2Ah battery, a large one hour fan-cooled charger and a sturdy storage case. The machine is beautifully finished with a smooth solid blue plastic body with a softgrip insert in the handle.A large side handle is also supplied and this incorporates a useful depth stop. The main torque ring has 16 settings and there’s a secondary ring for selecting the drilling modes.A single-handed, rubber-covered keyless chuck is fitted and there is a two speed gearbox with a maximum speed of 22,500rpm. As always on Makita tools a small screwed cover on either side of the body is used to allow owner brush changes. On the base of the handle are storage slots for two double-ended screwdriver bits.

In use the Makita is another tough performer. It doesn’t quite have the power of the Milwaukee, but is still a very competent machine. Personally I prefer it with the rather lighter 2Ah battery, though obviously the larger battery gives more power and greater run time.

Top quality machine that’s finishe
