Over at Amazon, their “deal of the day” is Makita’s compact cordless tool combo kit. This kit includes a 10.8V 1/4″ hex driver and an impact driver, for $125 (normally $160 and up). The combo also includes a charger (of course), 2 batteries, and hard shell storage case.
The drill/driver features 2-speed settings (0-350, 0-1300 rpm), and a 200 in-lb maximum torque rating. The impact driver has a 0-2400 rpm and 800 in-lb torque rating. By no means are these the best specs on the market right now, but the tools do offer quite decent features in a compact and very affordable package.

This is a very good deal, I already have the set so buying a 2nd I can’t justify. I love the set though, it has plenty of power, is light to carry around, when I first purchased it I wasn’t too sure about the case but once I had it I loved the case too. The case has plenty of room to carry around the driver, drill, charger, and still has room to carry a bit set inside.
I have two of these and picked up two more on this sale! I have been watching its price quite a bit! I am only upset because I am afraid two more isn’t enough!!! It is that good!
We are wondering if we could order the makita cordless drill/driver & impact down here in Jamaica. And what would be the cost please.
Due to export restrictions or distributor agreements, I don’t think many USA retailers are allowed to sell these tools outside the USA. Your best bet would be to check with a local hardware store or email Makita for a list of distributors in your area.
