2 reviews for Makita DDF481Z 1/2″ 18V Brushless Driver Drill – tool only

  1. Paul

    Agree with the other review, serious power in a light weight drill. The torque is hard to believe. Mostly using the Makita DDF481Z for driving longer structural screws that my other Makita 18V driver drills could not do. Tool only price is great, I have lots of batteries and am thinking of getting a second of the same tool to replace my aging fleet of lower torque Makita driver drills, impact drivers, and hammer drills. The one drill you need. Shipping to northern BC was also surprisingly quick and simple.

    Probably the best drill for the price on the planet. This thing has serious power, feels amazing in your hand and weighs and costs less than it’s competitors drills of equivalent power. Was picking stuff up at home depot the other day and noticed they were selling a less powerful Makita brushless drill (tool only as well) at 40 dollars MORE than the price of this one. For 200 bucks this thing a real bargain for what you are getting.
