This drill Does not perform the way they said it would. I give them 5 stars on the weight, it is very light, half the weight of a Dewalt drill. The first three weeks the battery would last 4 or 5 hours. Keep in mind I am working this drill 8 hours or more a day. A month later the battery life dropped dramatically. I am changing batteries 5 or 6 times a day. The torque is half of the Dewalt drill, even though the Dewalt is heaver and cost more I think it is worth the money. I was lucky enough to use a new Dewalt lithium for 1 month. The torque never went down and the battery life was very long. Every morning I put in a fresh battery at 7:00 am. Between 2: 00 pm and 3:00 pm is when I needed a fresh one. The Dewalt is twice as heavy as the Makita. I will be getting the new Dewalt drill. I will keep the Makita around the house that’s all it’s good for. If you want a workhorse drill the Makita is not it.
-- Have a great day.
