I'm aware that Makita drills are well-respected. My dad is very good
at using tools and likes them.
Recently I bought a Makita 18 volt MXT that just stopped turning
after drilling a few continuous holes in a 2 x 4. Apparently
something in the drive train disconnected, something other than the
chuck/bit or the clutch.
So I'm still looking for a drill. I'm wondering whether that was
bad luck, should I avoid the MXT line, or just avoid the 18 V MXT.
Yes, but in the near future you learn an unpleasant lesson about Home
Depot branded tools. They change the part number, color or appearance
and when you ask for a replacement they tell you they don't make that
model anymore and you are SOL. Been there with wrenches and
screwdrivers. Leigh at MarMachine
