Editorial Reviews:

Product Description
Our most powerful 18-Volt Driver-Drill Kit delivers 404 in.lbs. of pure power and is specifically designed for the Tradesmen who use their tools everyday. The 6343DWDE is equipped with our highest quality 1/2" Industrial Chuck, our exclusive High Performance "Makita" motor and an industrial metal gear housing for durability. Powered by 2.6Ah Ni-MH (Nickel Metal Hydride) batteries that are second to none. Well balanced for easy handling and weighs only 5.5lbs (w/battery).
Here comes power and efficiency in a great compact size. Before you even press the trigger, you'll love how this tool fits in your hand, how well-balanced it is. The rubberized grip gives you a sure, comfortable hold, even at odd angles. Performance is top-notch, thanks to dual ball bearings, precision balancing and a refined high-grade field magnet. We're really impressed by Makita's exclusive Shift Lock Drive. With a single touch, you shift quickly and easily "drill" to "driver" mode, locking out the clutch for superior drilling. And we love it when manufacturers include two batteries with their tools, because that means no down time. The charger handles multi-volt batteries, too, so it's good for a wide range. Maintenance is simple because the brushes are accessible. A great, hardworking drill/driver.--Kris Jensen-Van Heste

5Drill through two 4x4s, May 19, 2023
I'm not the most handy person around, but I decided to build a playground border consisting of two stacked 4x4s. I needed a drill that could drill through two 4x4s to create holes for the spikes.

The big orange box store said to stay away from cordless drills. I was told they do not have the power of a corded drill. After reading the specs of the Makita 18-Volt Cordless drill and understanding the reputation of Makita tools, I ordered the drill.

After a few hours, I had my swing set border complete. I was able to drill through two stacked 4x4s without problem. The spare battery was great. When one battery was running low, I put it in the chrager and used the second battery.

The convenience of the cordless model will allow me to use the drill all aorund the house. When I need a screwdriver, I can pick the drill up and go right to work. No need to worry about an extension cord just change the bit.

The drill comes with two batteries, battery charger, a carrying case and a few bits. I'd recommend purchasing the Makita UltraLoc kit so you have screwdriver attachments. The total cost less the Amazon discount and Makita (...)rebate was (...). Comparable drills are selling for (...)or more. Overall a great value for a product that completes the job. Highly recommended.

4Makita at their best well, almost, Apr 30, 2023
I have the Makita Mforce 18 volt drill/driver and the 14.4 volt as well. Both are well balanced and comfortable during extended use.

I like the clutch lock out feature for drilling, no longer having to set and reset the torque setting when switching from drilling to driving. This drill has the torque to get the job done.

The weight of the 18 volt is just bearly noticable when compared to the 14.4 model.

The negative for me is the speed switch. This switch requires some force to move it from high to low or vise-versa.

Battery life is above average with the two batteries that are included, it should make it through any project.

I have several other "top shelf" drills, each having plus or minus attributes, but I will have to give Makita the pick for my first choice. It has good balance and doesn't wear you out using it.


The price, the quality, the feel make this drill a winner.

5At this price, get it while you can!, Apr 16, 2023
When I first saw the 18-volt powerhouse Makita 6347DWDE drill at this price I thought it was too good to be true and quite possibly a misprint. I had to read the description and the fine print a few times before making my order.

With a retail price of over $500, the eventual $125 I paid after the $50 manufacturer's rebate and $25 off from Amazon made this one of the best value purchases I've ever made.

The benefits of owning quality power tools go without saying. And take it from me, Makita is a name you can trust. This is not a toy ... it is the real deal. Don't settle for good when you can have the very best.

My apologies for not going into a feature-by-feature commentary, but all that would do is delay the inevitable. Man, don't hesitate a second longer --- get this while you can and then call all your friends to make sure they get one of their own. You absolutely can't go wrong here.

Note: I also highly recommend the Makita 784874-A 15-Piece UltraLoc Set as a super enhancement to this drill.

5My Opinion, Mar 2, 2023
I dont know about this drill/driver in particular but just wanted to add my views here for those of you who arent real familiar with this brand. I used to be in apartment maintenance using it to fasten down underlayment... door, window, trim and moulding work, masonary and metal drilling as well as doing numerous household and hobby projects. I have been using my Makita cordless for over 17 years and it still is working like a champ! Have kept it in an unheated garage or truck/van in sometimes near zero degree weather here in Michigan and even this didnt kill the batteries.The original batteries and charger still work although the batteries dont hold a charge like they used to. The quality of the batteries themselves are amazing to me. I just purchased an 18 volt drill simply because I couldnt pass up the deal and wanted to jump on the big high voltage bandwagon. (For me 18 volt is big!). The battery life and power didnt impress me on my new purchase. (I wont mention the name because I havent had it long enough for a fair review). I also have a small cordless Makita reciprocating saw I also am a big fan of. My Dad has a cordless trim saw and we love it as well. I have Dewalt, Milwaukee, Bosch, Craftsman Stanley and other corded and cordless tools and I am not saying which is best or better because it all depends. Its hard to say what the quality of Makitas tools are today as compared to when I made my purchases but I would definately buy another Makita anything if the price was right. I have used my drill more in the last 17 years than most will in a lifetime. Driving screws until it would stall year in and year out and it never wore out, never needed brushes. Now... if you are a professional drywaller or window/door installer and are constantly driving screws untill the clutch slips then you will probably wear out the clutch/torque adjust in a year to a few years but that is my speculation. I have seen contractors using them for just such work. My point is... dont be afraid to try Makita. If mine was dead and I was shopping for a new cordless, it would be a Makita. If I didnt buy Makita it wouldnt be because I was worried about the power or quality but only the deal I was getting. Some of the other manufacturers I mentioned have decent tools as well but Makita can hold its own against all of them and then some against some of them. Bearing all this in mind.... if I saw that they were being made in China then I would have some serious reservations... otherwise.... go for it.

5Great light weight and power, Feb 9, 2023
I bought this drill after borrowing my friend's for a fence project. It had more than enough power and charge for me to finish one line of fence without switching to a new battery. Loved the fact that the screws went in nice and easy. Even nicer was the size and weight - felt more like a 14.4 V drill than an 18V in my hand. I've had Makita tools before and most my friends swear by them so reliability and durability are a major bonus.

Only concern is that many of the new Makitas are made in China and Mexico - don't know how quality will be affected. But this drill's made in Buford, Georgia so that's a moot point. Get this drill
