Fantastic bit of Kit
on 20 January 2014
I have owned the Makita 8391DWPE (the one with the red battery you get from screwfix / b&q for £100) of which I was very very happy. Never had a job it couldn't do. When the batteries finally died I was going to replace like for like but I fancied an impact driver also so purchased this combo. Am I glad I did.
Both tools have a fantastic build quality and feel. The drill is about twice as powerful as the 8391 and just feels right. The impact drive put my 6" M12 test coach bolt into solid timber without even breaking out a sweat. But boy is it loud - ear defenders are most defiantly required.
Overall if you can afford it, go for these.
Review Update: Jan 2016 - 2 years later.
Still very happy, still going strong. Batteries still fine. So still very happy.
The only real criticism I have is that the drill is a little heavy.
