My latest drill. Basically the FlexiClick version of my other 18V Bosch:(Image removed from quote.)
Those are some pretty sweet drills you have there!That's a cordless drill I can really get behind! Does it see much use? Def
Nice! Hitachi is a very good brand. There is a name change – or should I say “changes” - happening in Europe already: the Hitachi Power Tools name will become HiKoki – a derivative of Hitachi Koki Company's new name (Koki Holdings).Not sure I like the new name
Anyone that is still driving screws with drill do yourself a favor buy a cordless 1/4 impact even a cheap one. It will be life-changing. I'm pretty tight-fisted If mine burned tomorrow I would replace it with a new Dewalt I would not even think about it. It is my most used tool.

MrMckay, how is Makita variable speed drill working with the 3Ah battery? Does it do most jobs you ask it to?
I am very happy with it. I'm thinking of upgrading to 5ah but people say they're extremely heavy for all day work. Sent from my SM-G960F using Tapatalk
The Makita are a BEAST I think and they are smooth at the same time.I run Milwaukee and Makita all day long and there is no real extra power with the bigger batteries just longer run time.I also carry a so called 20v Dewalt and it is not nearly as powerful as the Red or Green but the charger is tiny and I have tiny batteries for it and it all fits easily in my "First In" bag so it gets the call on every job unless I need more power.I drill with 6' long bits and hole saws a lot and they eat through wood like a powered drill on a fresh battery.I do wish the Makita Chargers were smaller but OI can't have it all evidently.
I probably use my 12v Milwaukee Screwdriver as much as anything else in the end.The versions with the 1/4 chuck are you saying that has a regular tiny chuck or a chuck for driver bits directly?I have the Makita,Dewalt,Rigid,Ryobi,Bosch and Milwaukee in 12v and the Milwaukee is easily the best one of the bunch.Unlike the 18v the Makita is just sort of wimpy and I think the Bosch is actually the same tool as the Milwaukee and I am pretty sure the batteries could be easily modded to work between them too.So they are interchangeable to me in case you find a Bosch deal out there?
so stay away from the makita 10v? Yeah the kind the bits fit into
