Review for Makita 18V Combi Drill LXT DHP453Z by Install (Ceilings And Partitions) Ltd
14th June 2022

A very underrated drill in my opinion. I'm on my 2nd drill in 15+ years of using one (including the old red battery version of the same) decent enough for most jobs as long as you don't go beyond the specs

I bought one of these drills with two batteries as it was cheaper at the time than buying the two batteries separately.
Was surprised how much abuse this thing will take without breaking.
Perfect tool for an apprentice or someone who will just abuse it.

A good solid drill that’s worked well for me over the years. Battery life is now pretty poor, however. But this may just be normal life expectancy? It can slip out of gear occasionally - again, perhaps a sign of age and use. But it’s probably 15 years old now

Pretty basic but good enough for most things. Never really used the hammer for anything however.

Not the best they have to offer but slightly better than basic diy.

Not their finest moment ! After several different brands I tried this Makita and found 8t sadly lacking in power. I've since changed to the Milwaukee M18FPD-2 and haven't looked back !

Bought one of these as part of of two pice kit on offer from Screwfix. Was very disappointed with the drills lack of torque. I retained the charger , battery packs and impact drivers. I stashed this drill away in the back of a cupboard ( try selling it on eBay but no takers at £30 it was only used twice). Have bought a more powerful bare Makita Combi drill.

Was my first 18v dill had it for a good few years and it’s done me well, it’s good to start off with but I would say this is for diy use mainly if you don’t do much, if your looking for something to use everyday then I wouldn’t recommend as it’s not powerful enough

A very basic combi drill. I’d say they are more of a diy level drill. Haven’t got a lot of power and tend to brake easy if being pushed to much. Ok for very light use though!

Having got this drill / driver as part of Makita kit it’s a really handy addition for an extra drill to save changing bits over.
The fact that the batteries all fit is brilliant so that you aren’t using several different types and you can add to kit as all interchangeable.
Great and well price cordless drill.

Great drill to replace my old and tired combi drill. Usual array of drill settings and has a good amount of power for drilling tiles with a diamond bit. Reasonably priced all round drill from Makita.

Bought a cheap one as a back up, didn’t expect much from it due to the price, but it certainly keeps up with my DHP458.
May not be as rugged but for drilling and screwing its not a bad bit of kit.

Got one as a freebie so can't really complain but to be honest great little work horse, can use the whole range of 18v batteries from 1amp to 6amp. The torque is adequate for most jobs as is the hammer function. Use for everything from drilling to driving as a general tool.

Good for if your a new entry if Diyer, but if your on heavy use then this drill will not be for you, I’ve had 2 in the last couple of years replaced on warranty and now that one has started smoking so for me need to be a better brand

This is a good entry level Makita that doesn't cost the Earth but mine is still going 3 years later! Sees a good bit of action too. Obviously there is better out there, especially in the battery department, but good luck finding it as reasonably priced!

This is the first tool I bought in the LXT range about 3 years ago.I find it to be A fantastic drill I’ve never had any problems with it it’s done everything I have ever asked of it and it still going strong three years later with the original batteries. Apparently this is classed more as a DIYers drill ,I have to say for the first two years (I now use the smaller 10.8 drill Combi set as my goto) i used this drill on a daily basis and cannot recommend enough. I still load into my van daily just in case my little 10.8 can’t handle something.

A great little drill, i added this to my collection as i needed a second for one of my lads working with me. Very easy to use, reliable and not too heavy. Grip isn't too plasticy, quite comfortable.

Not Really for the tradesman this one! I bought this just to get me through when my old drill went bang and it only lasted a month or so before I had to return it!
Ok for DIY-ers but that’s about it!
