Customer Reviews

18-Volt LXT Brushless 1/4 in. 3-Speed Impact Driver (Tool-Only) is rated 4.2 out of 5 by 5.
Rated 1 out of 5 by from Didn't even make it a year I bought this because I had a 18 volt Makita drill that was less then a year old that I only used a few times and both batteries stopped working. I used this about once a week at the most around the house and the impact gun burnt up in less then a year. Won't ever buy one again. $300 impact should last longer. At least now I can use the drill with the impact batteries till that breaks.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from fast powerful, quality super fast and able to drive hm the toughest bolts (1/4"). im an ingersoll rand guy-thats my line for my compressor-garage mate, have the edge series in 3/8 and 1/2 air impact, thunder gun 1/2" air, the 3/8 cordless 3830 angle impact, and the 7150 cordless 1/2. im a mechanic and settle for nothing but the best. i decided to go for a smaller 1/4 cordless and was looking to see what ingersoll carried... but when my buddy recommended the makita lxt brushless, and he showed me his in action..i had to get one. i am very satisfied. gets into tight spaces and its ruthless at the 1/4" size. most 1/4" are weak ranging from 35-50 ft/lbs. ive checked the snap ons, milwaukkees, dewalts, AND THEYRE ALL WEAK IN THE 1/4" CLASS. this mkita brushless pushes at 120 FOOT POUNDS!!!. you will not go wrong w/ this piece. do your homework if your in search of a 1/4" impact driver. if you do it right, it will lead you here to my post!!!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Awesome I have owned all Makita tools , and none have let me down , there was no exception here. Being able to change to lower power setting is great for battery life. I primarily use on its lowest setting if that says anything. I drove a 1/2 in by 8 in lag screw threw a old 4x4 into stacked 2x6 s on high power with ease no pilot.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from serious power Just purchased this drill to replace my old Makita impact got it when they first came out about 7 or 8 years ago. This drill faster and more powerful like versatility of lower speeds. Uses no battery had for few weeks still using same battery haven't had to recharge it. Do hvac work so gets lot of use guys I work with have been using dewalt 20v. This drill by Makita has more power than it but don't know how compares to 3 speed dewalt none of them have it. Anyway awesome tool definitely good investment
