Just gotta say that their sub-compact 18v Drill / Driver set is awesome. It's nice and compact, but still delivers heavy duty power. Paired with a 2mah battery, it's super portable, can't recommend it enough. I hope they keep expanding that line.

I have to agree, the subcompact line has been awesome for us. It packs a punch and is so easy to maneuver. They are my new go to tools for all my light duty tasks. I use them every day.

Agree. This tool is a beast and the 1/2" Chuck is so nice to have in such a small footprint

How is it compared to Milwaukee m12 line up?
Particular the m12 fuel hammer drill.

Hey folks, it's awesome hearing all of these raving reviews for the Sub-compact line. I work with a drill everyday for a mix between light and heavy duty tasks. My Dewalt brushless has been too bulky one too many times, so I'm about to make the switch to Makita.

Does this deal stack? If I spend $200 do I get $50 off?

Thanks!

The length on the "sub-compact" Makita really looks to be very close or even the same length as the regular compact drill/driver from other brands. Doesn't really seem to have any real benefits over something like the Dewalt DCD791 drill or DCF887 impact driver, unless i'm missing something?

So envious of you guys who already jumped to the subcompact kits. Unfortunately before I saw it was available, had just bought 4 new 3.0mah batteries for my existing hammer-drill/impact driver to go along with 6.5" circular saw, sawzall, and led light. Love Makita

Still debating between the 2 piece drill/driver kit or 3 piece kit that adds the radio as well.

Particular the m12 fuel hammer drill.
I have owned both.

If I remember correctly, they have identical torque ratings and are both 1700 rpms, without load. Performance is similar.

The Makita has a shorter length front to back, so is effectively more compact but is taller. The old Fuel drill is not really compact, not even compared to compact M18 drills. The new Fuel drill that is about to come out looks to address this with a shorter length.

The M12 Fuel is weighted a bit top-heavy. Because of this, it took me a little while to get good at drilling perfectly straight with it, something I've never experienced with any other drill, including the brushed m12. The M12 Fuel also tends to torque the wrist a little more.

The M12 Fuel does have a good tool-balance with the high-capacity batteries, but then it weighs more than the Makita subcompact with a 2.0 battery. Btw, the Makita 2.0Ah battery also has more watt hrs and drives more screws than the 2.0Ah m12 battery, partly because 18v vs. 12v. Both are very energy efficient and run cool.

The Makita has a slimmer hand-grip area with a slightly softer rubber overmolding. It feels effortless. The Milwaukee has the pod style battery oriented wider towards the palm. The handle slims towards the crook between the thumb and index finger, which is where it tends to focus the hand pressure. A long day with this tool actually made my skin raw, which is something I've never experienced with other drills, including my old Milwaukee V18's.

The Makita is slightly quieter while the Fuel makes a fairly loud high-pitched electrical whine. This was a major killing point for me with the m12 lineup in general. I still own a couple m12 drills, and I still find it extremely grating.

The Makita has a larger belt clip, which is my preference. It also holds the driver with the tip sideways, instead of point-down. This is also better in practice for me because I am less likely to stab myself with a mounted twist-drill or magnetized screw poking off the end of a bit.

The m12 Fuel has a better chuck. It's all-metal and ratchets more confidently. The Makita is alright, but I may end up replacing it down the line. Still, I bet having a lighter chuck gives a slight advantage to battery life so I'll stay with it until it wears out.

The m12 Fuel carries a longer tool and battery warranty.

The hammer function on both is adequate for brick and cinder blocks, but not amazing, and is downright anemic in hard concrete. It's nice to have though.

Both have an insane amount of tools in the system.

In the end, I stuck with the Makita LXT platform for general carpentry. I also keep several Bosch 12v tools for light-duty install and precision work.

At the moment, if I could only own one drill, it would be the sub-compact hammer drill. It's a goldilocks.

XPH07Z does not seem to be eligible even though it's on the promotion page. Can't get the discount applied to it.

The promo is for $25 off $100. You probably have to add another $10.01 in smaller Makita items to get the total up.

works on the subcompact hammer drill though - XPH11ZB - but I already have the subcompact drill/driver so didn't think the sub hammer drill would be enough different to warrant it. Would like to get the XPH07 instead.
