Makita 18-Volt Compact Lithium-Ion Cordless 1/2-Inch Driver-Drill Kit
What I Say:
I don't normally post the more expensive items, but this one is definitely worth mentioning. If you're a handy person at all, if you work in a trade that requires tools, or if you wish to do things around your own house, this is definitely something you should own. This drill is lightweight and small. It fits in anyones hands, it isn't heavy so you don't have to spend too much of your strength holding it. It is powerful and you can get it into tiny spaces. It's battery life is excellent. As a former carpenter, I've used many other tools. This is the only one I've bought.
What Others Say:
The BDF452HW is super light, easy to handle and has good power. The batteries are physically small, but still pack 18 volts. The L/I batteries have a very flat run-time curve...they stay full power until right at the end of the charge. They recharge in 15 minutes (for real). Makita seems to have capitalized on the advantages of new battery technology and combined it with a well built, smooth, advanced tool.
