I highly recommend these. These drills would be a money maker ...
By Amazon Customer
I'm a metal roof contractor who has been using these Lithium-Ion drills since they first came out about 10 years ago. I put in about 2000 screws a day. The small batteries will put in at least 250 1-1/2 inch screws through metal and into wood. the larger batteries will put in at least 500. I still use the very first one I bought. The brake stopped working, but the drill still works, along with the batteries. I have dropped these drills off roofs and have never broken one. I have one drill that I am about to wear through the plastic on.Wearing away the drill itself may be the only way to destroy these things. My only complaint would be the high low switch on the hammer drills starts to slip out of gear between high and low from repeated pounding. (I slam the screw down hard enough to start it through the metal) I put a short zippy screw though the switch to hold it in place. I highly recommend these.These drills would be a money maker for me, even if they cost $1,000.00 I have never had a tool that has worked so hard and lasted so long.

Another great tool from Makita
By Rob the Toolman
I've been a Makita fan for a long time and have accumulated quite a few of their tools/batteries. I purchased my XPH102 model drill about a year and it's seen some heavy use since then. I've used this drill to remodel, build a shed, lay fence, and I've even attempted to drill into concrete with this thing.
One of the jobs I attempted with this drill was to install a large gun cabinet in my house; this required drilling four 1/2" holes 5" deep into the concrete foundation. After twenty minutes and three battery changes I had only completed 1 of the 4 holes (just FYI, I had a new Bosch masonry bit... so I can't blame the drill bit). One of the claims of this hammer/driver is "[it is] engineered for applications in wood, metal, masonry, and concrete" - my experience is that this is last part is NOT true. Most of us buying this drill are not going to use it to drill into concrete (because, let's be honest, it's not designed for that), so come on Makita, don't BS us.
Overall, this is a great drill for $99.
