I just saw the new advertisement from Tool King! Makita drill/driver kit at Tool King.
Too bad that when I bought mine they were still too new for reconditioned kits to be on the market.
I really love mine for in-the-shop use as well as on-site stuff!
Light weight, batteries last quite well considering the size, and the impact driver will handle 3” screws!
The ONLY thing I considered as a negative when I bought them was that the drill requires hex drive bits. (I had to by a set of drills, I believe I spent about $35.00 for a Ryobi set, 15 bits, 1/16” up to 3/8”)
I spent around $180.00 for the kit, right after it came out!

The only thing that I don’t like abut those little drills is teh hex bits. Too spendy and too many break ;-(( They need to have a small keyless chuck on a 1/4 hex mount that you can put in for drilling.

Topa
I agree, but I haven’t found one yet. The Ryobi set I bought has performed well so far although I have needed to sharpen a few so perhaps they are a little softer and not so prone to breakage?
