Makita is a well-known name in the world of power tools, and in particular they’re known for their quality and reliability. Thus, if you are looking for a drill that will come with a hammer option for the heavier masonry jobs, without having to worry about the drill shaking itself to pieces, you’ll be happy you chose the DHP456RMWX.

This cordless drill ensures your mobility as a user. It has a 4 pole motor (a type of motor with two sets of three windings in its electromagnetic structure), a 2-speed gear box and metallic gears. These characteristics all contribute to making the drill a much more robust and hardy piece of kit than some of the cheap nonsense you’ll find elsewhere on the market. The metallic gears guarantee an increased runtime and longer tool life- no worries about worn plastic components here.

The drill’s forward and reverse button ensures that you are able to drill in either direction quite easily. The button is also conveniently located to ensure you can easily operate it without straining, which is particularly important when operating a potentially hazardous piece of fast moving equipment. The redesigned ergonomic grip of the handle also ensures more comfortable drilling from any angle.

The LED job light with an afterglow is appropriate for lighting dim working places thus you not need worry about carrying an extra source of light such as a flash light. Furthermore, the afterglow ensures you have light even after switching the drill off. If all this talk of powerful motors and lights all running simultaneously rings alarm bells in your head as far as the battery draining quickly is concerned, rest assured that the battery’s charge time is a mere 36 minutes; so you’ll never have to long to wait.

This Makita drill comes with its own carry case, a belt clip and screwdriver bits. Such accessories are always a welcome and handy addition.
