- Makita BDF452 18-Volt Lithium Ion Cordless Driver Drill
- Brand: Makita | Category: Drill-Drivers
This drill is great. It has plenty of power. The best part is it only wieghs about 3 lbs. I bought this drill about one month ago. It seems like I haven’t put is down since. I looked over several drills before I bought this one. Most woodworkers can do fine with a 14.4v drill. I looked at several of them. I figured I could get one that wieghs less than a 14.4v, but was stronger at the same time. That is why I chose this.
Another cool feature is the LED light right above the trigger. I didn’t think this would be useful, just more of a gimmick. I was wrong. If you don’t have one on your current drill, you will notice a big difference on this. When I get into corners, or anywhere a little dark, the light really helps.
The batteries are Lithium-Ion which means they have no memory. They also only take 15 minutes to completely charge. You read that right 15 minutes. I was spectical about that as well. When I opened it, I charged both batteries. In about 28 minutes, both batteries were ready to go. That is the best on the market as far as I know.
If you are looking for a good cordless drill, I would highly recommend this one from Makita.
