I?ve been using Makita tools for over 30yrs and think they?re great, I still have the 1st 9.6V drill I bought way back when. In addition to 2 9.6V drills I also have the saber saw, circular saw & flashlight, plus a 9.6V-12V dual voltage drill.
Been using this drill for over 17years...it's great!
The new battery works just great like it should! One of the original batteries "died" after 13 years of service. I hope the new one lasts as long.
Is the right part we needed, arrived in a short time.
