Powerful Drill Set

Review Summary

Until this year I have never owned any Makita tools. I heard they were good but you don't know until you use them. I was very impressed. They made the job easier. Both drills operated flawlessly and were powerful enough to handle all of my assorted tasking. I have found no flaws with this drill set, even the value was well worth the expense. I forsee the drill set last many years to come.
