Makita Cordless Hammer Drills

by Vince Ferentini

The Makita BHP452HW is the best of all Makita cordless hammer drills you can get for your home projects. I got my Makita 2 years ago and it’s still running strong! It came with 2 smaller batteries that are just enough for any project around the house and if I feel I might need the second one I just start charging it and 20 minutes later it’s fully charged.

I’m a home owner and use it for house projects indoors and outdoors too. I got it with the hammer drill mode for drilling into concrete outside. What I like about it:
* Very light
* Feels good in the hand – well balanced and ergonomically designed.
* Very powerful
* Hammer mode is great
* Quick charge time
* Belt clip is useful
* The 3 year warranty is great

Things that need improvement

* Trigger – speed selection is not easy – you need to get used to.
* No bit holder

I also like the 18volt tool family concept – I use my batteries with my Makita circular saw and the impact driver I got a few years back. So when I buy a new replacement battery it’s good for all of the tools.

I recommend this tool to any home owner and Do it yourself guys – but not for industrial work .
I give this tool the score 4.5 4.5star
