    I’ve had Makita tools for over 20 years and all of them are still working. I am not a Contractor but more towards the occasional renovation. I have a big project coming up and need portable Pro tools. Only recently have the power from higher voltage batteries made this possible. Not the cheapest “Set” but far better built than the competition. This set is a nice combination of tools and though most people don’t think they have need for the light, it ends up being used often. Great to have during a power failure – 12 hours of a powerful light with the two batteries. Charger is fast and should be able keep up with heavy tool use. A battery powered circular saw with this much power and stamina – never thought I would ever own one! Love it!!

    OKAY! It is now a year later and I have finished my Log Cabin in Vermont. Actually, I just did the interior but that is still a whole summer of work. All the walls, doors, stairs, plumbing and electrical work. All done with just this set of power tools with just the addition of the LXT jigsaw. I also got 2 more batteries as often you work with more than one tool at a time. The tools made it easy. Batteries last and recharge faster then I used them up. Drill and jigsaw last the longest. The circular saw needs the most power and depletes the battery fastest but the next battery is already waiting. The included blade for the circular saw is high quality and lasted for the entire project – still good for a while yet! I used the reciprocal saw the least but it is fine also. I have small hands but the tools are really well balanced and not too heavy. The batteries deliver maximum power till the end and don’t slowly get weaker and weaker. You know when it is time to recharge. Very glad I got these tools. No hesitation in recommending them or any other Makita tool! Just wish I had another cabin to do…

    I was in need of a new cordless drill. While my current Sears 24V drill still worked, both batteries I had for it had failed and the cost of a single replacement battery was almost two thirds the cost of a new drill. If I was going to buy new I wanted to get something light, and powered by lithium ion batteries. Having previously used my fathers Makita drill in some renovations I searched for this brand. I found the combination kits and picked the one that had a circular saw and reciprocating saw, both which are tools I wanted but didn’t have yet.

    So far I have used the tools for a few light projects around the house, nothing big yet. I can say the batteries last a long time, longer then it takes to charge, so even if your battery dies the other one is ready to go. The drill has an LED that turns on and stays on a few seconds after the drills is off. I found this extra time was just right for aligning the next hole.

    At the time I purchased my kit it also came with a mail in rebate for free vibrating all-in-one tool making this an even better value. In all I got each tool for far less then I would have paid for individually.

    Upgraded from a DeWalt Ni-Cd, never going back!, June 10, 2010

    I did a lot of research before finally settling on this combo set. It came down to either the bosch or the makita and I decided on this set mainly because of the free tool that Makita was offering as a rebate. Ridgid and Milwaukee was also on my list but my friend had a makita set so it was easy to swap and share batteries/tools. It also helped that the price of this was only $389 (plus free tool) vs mid 400s for the other brand. Obviously the quality on the Bosch seems much more refined and solid performing (smooth), but in the end price was also a factor.

    The drill/driver itself was a little on the noisy side since I was coming from a 9.6V DeWalt Ni-Cd. But boy does this thing have power! I do see a little chuck wobble but not so severe to cause problems with my spade wood boring bits. Btw, as a side note, if you decide to use bi-metal hole cutters with this drill, it’ll eat up batteries. A better alternative would be to get the carbide tipped hole saws. Some reviewers also noted that the reversing switch may accidentally engage but I didn’t have that problem. The switch is positioned a little low and I can see how someone may hit the switch going from reverse to forward. In the forward mode, there’s less of a chance of that happening. Side note: the bosch reversing switch is just the opposite, it’s up and further away. If you have large hands, there wouldn’t be a problem. I have medium hands and I can barely reach the Bosch switch without repositioning my hand. The LED light does cast a V (maybe more like a U) shaped shadow. Bosch seemed to have solved that problem by putting the LED near the base of the handle (near the battery).

    As for the circular saw, I didn’t even use the stock blade. I switched it out for a Freud Diablo 24T and it cuts thru PT wet lumber like a hot knife thru butter! The base is pretty solid and way better than my Skil saw. I can see how the lever to adjust the cut depth can be broken; gotta be gentle on it. The guard is made of plastic as is most of the other 6 1/2″ cordless saws I’ve seen. Power is decent and adequate for working on deck lumber. I now use this saw mainly over my corded Skil and love the fact it’s so portable and maneuverable. The blade is on the left and I’ve had to adjust how I clamp, stabilize and cut (since the Skil had the blade on the right). The advantage though is that I can see the cut more clearly.

    I haven’t used the recip saw yet but I’m sure it’ll perform well. It is on the heavy side but what model isn’t? And speaking of heavy, the combo kit bag is heavy with all the tools packed in (obviously). I keep my drill/driver separate in another bag and I’m thinking of putting the circ saw in the makita 16″ 821012 bag which someone else had done and said it worked well.

    And why do they have to always count the flashlight? It really should be a 3 piece combo kit plus flashlight, rather than a 4 piece kit. Btw, Makita packages their lessor models in their combo kits. i.e. the BSS611 instead of the BSS610 circ saw, the BHP452 vs the BHP454 drill/driver, the BJR182 vs BJR181 recip saw.

    In the end, I would recommend this combo kit for above average performance. If I had the money I would get the Bosch set instead but be aware that Bosch does not have as many tools in their Li-Ion collection as Makita does.
