Makita Lxph03


Just came in the mail today. I tested it against the 454 for a couple min. Pretty impressed so far.

That new hammerdrill is nice. I played with one at a show and was impressed. Light weight and powerful, it didn't seem like a toy either.

Re: Makita Lxph03


Seems any 1.99 blade on any electric drill could do just as well on a cmu.
What about into concrete?

The blower is great and in such a small package. Battery seems to last a long time.

Re: Makita Lxph03

Re: Makita Lxph03


Does this new drill have the metal chuck? This is the model they should have made brushless.
