The Makita BHP452 is a cordless hammer driver-drill. The 4-pole motor is capable of producing up to 450 inch-pounds of torque. You can find this tool for an average price of $80. Let's take a look at...

The 4-pole motor is capable of powering the tool to two different speeds. The Makita BHP452 operates between 0 and 400 RPMs on the lowest speed, and operates up to a maximum of 1,500 RPMs on the highest speed. This allows you to use the tool for a variety of driving and drilling situations. The Shift-Lock system enables you to switch from driver to hammer drill mode easily.

This cordless hammer driver-drill features an ergonomic grip. The grip on the Makita BHP452 is designed to fit like a glove to increase comfort. It only measures 9.5 inches in length and weighs slightly less than four pounds. This will help reduce operator fatigue when using the tool for long periods of time.

The Makita BHP452 uses sliding-style lithium ion batteries. The battery provides up to five times less self-discharge. There are also 16 holding contact terminals on the battery so that the Makita BHP452 can maintain a constant supply of high power.

The battery for the tool is charged using a unique charger. The battery and charger are both equipped with chips that allow them to communicate during the charging process. The charger also features an Active 3 Control system. This helps to maintain the ideal current, thermal, and voltage control. The charging process only takes 30 minutes. The Makita BHP452 doesn't come with a battery and charger unless you buy the tool in a kit.

Another nice feature of the Makita BHP452 is the built-in LED light that is designed to illuminate the work area. The operation of the light is attached to the trigger. Makita backs the BHP452 with a three-year warranty on the tool and a one-year warranty on the battery.

The Makita BHP452 hammer drill/driver offers 450 inch-pounds of torque. With its light weight and ergonomic grip, you will find the tool to be very comfortable to use for long periods of time.
