Makita 18V Lithium-Ion Drill Kit


Makita had us at “480 in. lbs of Max Torque”. Having used these drills for at least 100 hours around our house, we can attest that if you’re not careful they could break your wrist. This drill and impact driver are compact and powerful. We’ve drilled through metal and concrete with ease and have built our own tables, benches, swings, and bridges while also hanging drywall, stirring paint, polishing cars, and boring holes. The impact driver is especially helpful for driving screws into really dense materials. Oh, and we’ve broken some screws too – again, powerful! This kit comes with two rechargeable batteries – a MUST – and a great little LED flashlight. Which reminds us, each drill has an led light built into the handle that illuminates on each trigger pull. We’ve used this little light far more than we expected.
