do I really need both these drivers.. (Impact driver & regular drill.)
I don't want to spend even $99 on these, although a nice price and good equipment.
From what I understand only one (impact driver) would suffice..(I don't own a home and don't do much of drilling or fixing around... only occasionally when the need arise).

What would be the best alternative for my needs ?

my suggestion would be to get the $20 chicago electric 12v drill from harbor freight to tide you over until you can buy the Makita LXDT01. The cheapy 12v drill from HF is actually pretty rugged. i've had it about a year now and use it fairly often when i don't feel like taking my makita out of the case.

after owning an impact driver, a drill isn't really necessary. Especially since the LXDT01 has three speed settings and a variable trigger to do some very gentle and easily controllable driving.

Thanks for the response...

As per my use, I really want to cheap out on the price and the chicago electric $20 seems a good suggestion...
But the Makita LXDT01 is a whopping $250+... I can never imagine spending that much for a drill / driver (well thats just me).
I do like a cordless driver which does the drilling and screw driving...in the ~$20 range (but it shouldn't be like 3.8v, since that just doesn't have the power). suggestions ???

I've had a Makita cordless drill for more than 10 years. Every few years, I have the batteries rebuilt.
I've abused the heck out of it and it's been great. I'd buy it again for $200 compared to anything HF sells at $20.

The impact driver is great...

you can usually find the LXDT01s new on ebay for under $200 if you're willing to wait. If you research comparisons between impact drivers and drills, you'll probably realize that an impact driver does everything a drill can, but better (as long as you can control the speed well) Wink this is especially true for around the house applications.

I noticed makitas impact driver and drill kits usually come with the lower end single speed impact drivers. variable speed ones like the LXDT01 are not available in kits because it would be redundant (IMO) to have a hammer drill or regular drill driver supplied with it.

I personally wouldn't invest in makita's 12v line. Their 18v line is the cream of the crop.


edit: as far as the cheapy HF 12v drill, I've put 3 inch screws through 2x4s without a problem. I've used it through aluminum studs and on 3/4" plywood. I've drilled through bricks with it without a problem. It's still going strong when i need it.

how do you have the batteries rebuilt? can you DIY or do you send it out?

This is the same deal that was offered like a month or so ago, right? I'm sure some of those purchasers can give their early use feedback.

Add a filler and use code: THDLBTEN to save $10 off $100.
