Like other second-generation 18-volt lithium-ion tools, Makita's updated drill/driver offers more power in a smaller, lighter package. Weighing a mere 3.3 pounds and measuring less than 8 inches from tip to tail, this drill delivers 30 inch-pounds more torque than the company's previous model. What's more, its battery can be filled up by the Makita charger in only 15 minutes.
