Got this last time, started putting a deck together with it. Drill has tons of torque, no issues drilling 1/2" holes through hardened steel, and it laughed at 1" spade bit. I was never left wanting for power even with the smaller battery. They charge so fast it hardly matters anyway. Impact is pretty nice too.
but ive heard bad things on the makita li-on batteries, too much failure
Makita Gimmicked themself to death they tried to add more and more "features" and overlooked a design flaw in their Batt / Charger system which DOES lead to early death of batteries they know this and it appears its cheaper for them to have a easy to replace battery policy (even after 1 year) because they know most will do nothing when they should have announced a fix and trade in program but even now years after the problem was found there has been no fix
i bought Ryobi myself so i am not in the Dewalt V Makita fight BUT i will never buy Makita
