Think of amps as the battery's gas tank: the greater the amps, the longer the tool's run time. With the new MForce line of cordless tools, Makita has bumped their ultracompact NiMH batteries up to 2.6 amps, delivering a markedly longer run time per charge. The tool is compact and well balanced, too, thanks in part to the newly designed two-piece motor that allows for a smaller 18-volt unit still capable of an impressive 400 inch-pounds of torque, more than enough power for any task for which we'd use a cordless. The unit's all-metal gear transmission, featuring a planetary gear system, also takes up a minimum of space, and does a good job delivering smooth power.
The MForce line also features a new Shift Lock drive system that locks out the clutch, shifting from driver to drill mode in a way that will never slip. Another plus is the addition of a ratcheting chuck that you twist to tighten, a satisfying mechanism that really locks a bit in place. The combination of 18-volts and a 1/2-inch chuck on this model makes it a smart choice for anyone frequently using larger bits. Best of all, the drill feels great in the hand: the balance is right and the handle has a rubberized grip, a new feature to Makita drills and one an all-day user will surely appreciate. This kit includes two 18-volt, 2.6 amp NiMH batteries, a handy adjustable flashlight, a multivoltage charger, and a carrying case.
