Makita 18v Sub-Compact Cordless Drill Driver Tool Review and Demo

This is by far the best cordless drill package by my standards. Highly recommended for shop use. Amazing technology. Handy lunch box. Makita delivers the goods for $230 at home depot. The drill chuck on the Makita has 1/2″ capacity, which I think is pretty neat to have on such a small drill.

Great review by someone who uses these every day

Thought Ridgid had a life time warranty or the battery ?

I bought these at HD at Christmas time and have been using them extensively since. So far they seem to be a great combo. I told a contractor buddy about them and he bought the set and loves them too. I may at some point, as these batteries begin to fade and because a couple of times they both needed charging at the same time, buy at least one of their high amp hour batteries, You mentioned the possible lack of need for a right angle, and you’re correct. I used the drill to make holes through the sides of a few dozen studs to run 12 gauge electrical wire and the drill bit fit with plenty of room between the studs and had no problem turning a 3/4″ bit..

Great work I think you have potential to be a HUGE YouTuber and make this your full time job! It’s just I actually noticed that your channel isn’t growing very fast, which is holding you back! I actually experienced the same exact problem on my main channel until my friend hooked me up with some music from AudioGrab. Ive used it here on my YouTube Channel, and have seen impressive results! It is YouTube certified (which I mean non-copyrighted & and still monetizable) Since it helped me I thought I would mention it to you, here’s a song from there to check out, as they also have thousands more!

This is my next pair of drills even though my 12+ year old Mikita drill set both the drill/driver and impact driver are still kicking butt I have been checking out the sub compact and at this price level they can’t beat. MITCH EMAIL Mikita there always looking for YouTubers to get products out there. What their criteria is but it’s worth a 10 minute email.
