Makita LXT Reciprocating Saw - BJR182

Makita LXT Reciprocating Saw - BJR182

2024 days ago by toolman | 3 comments »

We used this saw the other day and it is a great saw. I have always been a fan of the Sawzall, but this has sold me. Obviously it doesn’t have the power the V28 Sawzall has, but I love the blade change system. When the blade is in place, it stays in place, even if it binds. If you want to take it out, it will come out very easy. The best thing is you can change the blade with one hand. The locking system will lock into place and allow you to insert the blade easy. Besides the blade s...

UPDATE: I end up returning it, due to manufacture’s defect . The sander pad was scratched and had dents in it. The second is way worse.More vibration than the first one, and way louder. I shouldn’t even return it in the first place. ——————————————————————————————————&#...

I haven’t been able to use the drill as much as the driver but I can definitely say that I’m very happy with this set! The impact driver takes NO effort to operate and the size and weight are a HUGE improvement over my standard Ni-Cad DeWalt! The ergonomics are perfect! The belt clip comes in very handy and you can flip the clip to the correct side for normal left-handed people ;) Heck, the charger itself is very impressive! 1hr charge time, cooling fan, maintenance mode, etc. I or...

Light, strong and well balanced

Light, strong and well balanced

I’ve been using the 12V Rigid cordless you can see in the photo for quite some time. I figured a cordless drill is a cordless drill, but once I held this Makita in my hand, I was forever changed. Pros: Power: This little guy is loaded with torque. Trigger speed control: The range from just barely turning to fully wound up is all accessible. The trigger has good resistance and feedback. Once you’ve found the sweet spot for the task at hand, it’s easy to repeat....

Review of the Makita Drill/Driver BHP452

Review of the Makita Drill/Driver BHP452

2026 days ago by toolman | 3 comments »

We just got done testing this Makita drill and love it. Anyone who has worked with or owned one of these drills knows what we are talking about. Lots of power provided by the 3.0amp Lithium Ion battery, which also helps reduce the weight. We ran it trhough some test and took some video, quit impressive. Overall this drill has great balance and lots of power

Best darn driver I've ever used

Best darn driver I've ever used

How many tools evoke real pleasure each time you use them? This Makita will do that. I was replacing a patio cover while doing a “Paint the Town” project a couple of years ago. The cover was composed of dozens of 16’ long 2×4’s that needed to be screwed into the crossmembers. A guy that fixed my garage door recommended I buy this Makita for the job. Boy, was he right. Now I typically reach for the Makita before I consider any other drill/driver. The impact takes ...

Makitta LXFDO1CW best in class

Makitta LXFDO1CW best in class

865 days ago by Chipy | 6 comments »

After putting up with Ni-cad battery’s for the last 20 years it is a pleasure to finally own an 18 volt Lithium Ion drill/ driver. I chose the Makita LXFDO1Cw on Wood magazine’s review. The drill feels comfortable in your hand ergonomic and all that Fahrvergnügen jazz. The motor is full of torque and has plenty of power. Recharge time was one of the shortest compared to its piers it its class according to Wood magazine but I have nothing to compare it to I am still living in Ni-c...

Not what they said it was!

Not what they said it was!

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 eno...

A little pricey, but worth it.

A little pricey, but worth it.

Bought this when I did the drawers for the lego table.My Ryobi drill wouldn’t fit in some of the places I needed it too. I also bought the 3/8 chuck for the drill. In my opinion, these tools preform as designed. I have driven 3 1/2” drywall screws into pine 2×4s with no pilot hole with no problem. Plenty of power. The impact driver is a bit noisy, but that is to be expected. For assebly with screws, they simply cant be beat. I find myself reaching for the drill more of...
