Did you forget the "1", because if you had said 120v or bust I might agree with you, at least for the bigger jobs because a real plug-in hammer drill or SDS is going to perform much better in stone or concrete than any of these little cordless hammer drills. That being said, for the occasional time that you might need to drill some small holes in concrete, the hammer function is a nice feature to have in a cordless drill.

Bit if you actually meant 20v, as opposed to this drill which is 18v, then I have to wholeheartedly disagree because any tool company which advertises 20v is just using marketing wank to create the perception that their tools have more power than 18v options. In reality their 20v "max" is the exact same thing as 18v from others. They all use similar banks of 5 batteries with nominal operating voltages of 3.7 and fully charged voltages of 4.2 - it just depends on when in the charging/use cycle you measure the voltage.

Seems like a good deal.
$10 cheaper than previous FP one.

I bought one at the last deal at the $69.95 price. Very pleased, well worth the money paid. I think the quality of their tools is outstanding and I think Makita has more products than anyone else. (You really are buying into their battery system)

This is why I use a Costco Visa card with their "price rewind" feature that will refund me the difference within 60 days of purchase if I find a lower price

Need to find a battery deal. Otherwise the Rigid brushless might be a better deal at $179 at Home Depot...

You're getting a better tool if you go with makita

A bit higher grade tool, but for a typical homeowner a ridgid will be more than adequate and you will never have to buy replacement batteries. The ridgid certainly doesn't lack in power at all, although I'm going to guess that the makita is lighter.

I already have a Makita regular drill and an impact driver and three batteries. Is a hammer drill mainly used for drilling through concrete?

Yes, exactly. If you're not drilling masonry (concrete, brick, etc) you won't see any benefit over your drill and driver combo.

Makita occasionally has deals where if you buy two tools that will give you two 4.0 batteries for free. At some point you need to get something with the charger

A hammer drill gives you the OPTION to drill into masonry. This drill has a rotating ring with 3 positions - regular drill, hammer drill or for use driving screws

Its only $56.11 right now through one of the Amazon Marketplace sellers, Fat Boy Tools. Ships from Ohio so no tax for most people.
