    My old Makita rechargeable drill used NiCd batteries and had got to the point that it would just about drill one hole in brick, or six holes in 1/2″ wood, and then need a day to recharge. Time to buy a new drill.

    I bought a hefty Makita impact driver recently and so have a charger and batteries: I looked for the cheapest compatible Makita drill that I could find … this is it. For the money, I’m delighted. I haven’t managed to stall it yet and I wish I’d moved up to lithium battery powered equipment long before now.

    It’s light and powerful and it has a badge on the side that says “Makita” so I can pretend that I know what I’m doing with DIY jobs.

    I feel I can review this item with the utmost confidence because even though I’ve only just purchased this one, these are issued to us at work and I use mine daily.

    It’s a really good bit of kit. Not perfect (despite the 5 stars…perhaps 4.5 would have been more apt) but not too far off for what it is. Obviously, you won’t get the power of an high-end corded hammer drill, nor will you get the compactness of it’s smaller screwdriver cousin. What you do get though is a really good all-rounder.

    There is an hammer option, which is actually quite powerful (in fact, I’ve also bought a new 18v Dewalt drill recently and I find the hammer option to be more powerful on this). It will drill relatively easily into all but the hardest of materials. I would have said ALL until recently, when I was on the verge of tears trying to hang a gate post on a wall of Accrington brick, which, of course, just laughed at me. No doubt you’d ask why not just go for the mortar joint’s…well that was what the…

    Where to start ….

    I own a DTD152 impact driver and a DHP453 combi drill alongside other Makita tools. I found the impact driver a bit too powerful on occasions (especially for smaller screws) so thought getting a single drill somewhere in between the two tools above so that I would only need to lug one around with me.

    There is no question the hammer action of the 482 is better than the 453. On paper another 20Nm and the test drill I did on an old flag stone definitely proved it to be a step up

    However, for larger diameter/longer screws it feels wanting against the 152. It obviously would being a much lower power device.

    So, what do I do? I will definitely flog the 453 on an internet auction site and had intended to do the same with the 152. Think I’ll wait a bit and see how the 482 performs in the real world before bidding it a fond farewell

    The 482 is a good compromise re length at 208mm. (152 = 187mm, 453 = 240mm) It also DOESN’T feel heavy and DOES feel balanced in the hand.

    Got a…

    Great General purpose drill I got this to work alongside my older DHP456 which in itself is a great drill after 4 years of a lot lf work the Chuck is starting to play up, (will get a replacement in time as they are fairly inexpensive) this got me looking at Bare body drills as I have a Pair of batteries this model DHP482Z came up as great Value for money and is an updated version of my older one, its got a little more torque and a few more RPM’s they look fairly similar and have the same body shape which is great, perfect fit into the old case,
    Its got the addition of 2 Led work lights which is better as with the older drill the Chuck would cast a shadow over exactly the tip of the drill bit.
    Superb piece of kit ( it’s a brushed model, that’s fine as I have a spair set of brushes, they are only cheap anyway and I haven’t had to replace them in 4 years of fairly decent use.)
    For the price absolutely Superb.
