Makita DHP453 Hammer driver drill


A driver drill is a tool primarily used for making round holes or driving fasteners. It is fitted with a bit, either a drill or driver, depending on application, secured by a chuck. It also includes a hammer function.

A cordless drill is an electric drill which uses rechargeable batteries. They are available in the hammer drill configuration and most have a clutch, which aids in driving screws into various substrates while not damaging them.

How to use

  • Choose the correct drill bit.
  • Fit the drill bit firmly into the chuck. You may be able to do this by hand.
  • Hold the drill steady and push it into the material you're drilling. If it takes more than light force to drill the hole, you're probably using the wrong bit.
  • Adjust the clutch. Each drill has a twistable collar to adjust the torque. The higher the number, the more torque (rotational force) the drill will apply.
  • Avoid overheating the drill bit.
  • If the battery is too low, swap it with a spare battery pack.


  • Drill and screwdriver
  • Two speeds, less speed more power, more speed less power
  • Gear number:
    • High number (14) more pressure and power
    • Low number (1) less power for not damage the material when you break the bottom surface
  • Screw position
  • Hammer position, not just spin (used for concrete and not for metal and wood)


Using a bit made from the wrong material can cause the bit or the material you're drilling to break. You can use a general-purpose bit on most wood; a masonry bit for stone, brick or concrete; an HSS (high speed steel) bit on most metals Drills.png
