I just purchased a makita drill DHP453 and was wondering if you could answer a few questions
1.is the silver collar at the end supposed to spin
2. When on screw driving mode does the clutch kick it when it's reached maximum torque even though the screw isn't completely driven into the wood?

Sorry for dumb questions but I'm new to makita

2, mine does.

The driver does not "know" how far in a screw is, all it "knows" is that it has exceeded the limit of the clutch setting

NO!

The whole idea of the clutch is to stop the driver "carrying on" and shearing the head off the screw being driven in.

If a screw will not go all the way in, take it out and make the pilot hole slightly wider or slightly deeper.

Or if you didn't drill a pilot hole then you should

Hi,

THe drill you linked to there is the BTD146Z. Most models beginning with a B will not take the 4Ah, however some will depending on when/where they were made. All models beginning with a D will take the 4Ah battery.

The only way to tell if a B model will take the 4Ah is to check the bottom - If it doesnt have one of the three bases shown in the image below , then it cannot take the 4Ah battery

I know we have had both versions of the BTD146Z delivered to us in the recent past, so unless you can convince the seller to check all the stock to make sure you get one that can take it, you are better looking for a DTD146Z.

Regards
Ian
