Where is this tool made?

This is one of the few Makita tools made in Japan. Amazing quality workmanship, I wish they made a updated model. Still a great tool and by far the quietest

Can I use this with the 2.0 amp compact batteries as I prefer and does that affect the operability of the tool -power

Yes you can as long as its an 18 volt. The issue will be your use time. Won't be as long as the bigger ah batteries.

XST01Z and XST01M (XST01Z and KIT). As per Makita USA XST01M (combo kit XST01Z, BL1840(2 of 4.0Ah Battery), DC18RCis scheduled to available in US mark

Just call the store you are using and ask them. That is what their Customer Service department is for. It would be nice if they could share new items arrival dates and current stock at your local stores online though.

Title: Protect your hearing with the low noise Oil-Impulse Driver I’ve been using Makita impact ...
Title: Protect your hearing with the low noise Oil-Impulse Driver I’ve been using Makita impact drivers for more than 10 years, even before the cordless industry switched to 18V L-Ion batteries. Their high noise level has always been a concern for hearing loss, but their advantages for efficiently driving a wide variety of construction fasteners has overridden that concern. When Makita introduced their XST01 oil-impulse driver with its claimed sizable noise reduction, I was interested, but its maximum torque rating of only 355 in-lbs prevented my purchase. Makita did not explain how the torque delivered by the oil-impulse driver differed from that of a standard impact driver. Fortunately, recent on-line review videos of the similar Milwaukee M18 FUEL SURGE Hydraulic driver included torque vs impulse rate plots for the SURGE and for a standard impact driver. The standard driver has a high (typically >1500 in-lbs) but very brief torque impulse that lasts a small fraction of the impulse repetition time (low duty-cycle). In contrast, the SURGE has flat sustained torque for most of the impulse repetition time (high duty-cycle), although at a lower maximum torque of 450 in-lbs. Because of its delivery of sustained torque, the SURGE can typically drive fasteners quite fast, provided the required torque is below its maximum output, which is the case for many commonly used construction screws. With this understanding of how an oil-impulse driver delivers torque, I decided to order the Makita version, and I am very pleased with its performance. First, at around 75 db, it generates MUCH less noise, regardless of the type of fastener being driven. But it also drives mid-sized construction screws very fast. I have tested it with a variety of self-drilling screws that I might typically use: FastenMaster LedgerLOKs, HeadLOKs, and 8” ThruLOKs, and 1/4” dia. screws by Simpson (SDS) and SPAX. It drives all of these screws without a noticeable reduction in speed, and also considerably faster than my older Makita BTD 141 standard impact driver. For me the major advantage of the Makita oil-impulse driver is its much lower noise operation. Its ability to efficiently drive the vast majority of fasteners that I am likely to use is, of course, also important. With more use, I think the two lower speed/torque ranges will prove very useful for smaller fasteners. I don’t do much sheet-metal work, but the T-mode may prove useful for driving smaller wood screws with more precision. Based on a limited amount of use so far, I am glad that I made the investment in this improved driver.

(What's this)
This is the Makita LXT 18-Volt Lithium-Ion Oil-Impulse Brushless Cordless 3-Speed Impact Driver but it does not include the necessary 18v lithium ion battery nor the charger. Keep in mind the battery and charger will cost you a bit more if you are not already invested in the Makita battery powered tool eco-system. Out of the box the driver is very compact and easy to handle so getting into tight spaces shouldn't be too difficult. The unit is very quite when in use compared to other impact drivers I have used. This is probably due to it being oil driven instead of mechanical impact. Power is more than sufficient for nuts and bolts that you would use with a 1/4" ratchet. Makita seems to list a max torque spec of 15 ft/lbs but my seat of the pants test feels like it is higher. Also, the manual seems to prefer listing bolt sizes instead of torque specs. Without test equipment I can't test this so I just have to go by what the manual states. The manual is very well written and detailed overall aside from that. There is a single button located in front of the grip that allows you to turn the led light on and off as well adjust the speed of the driver. The light is handy when working in dark spaces and it will auto shut off after a few seconds of releasing the trigger. The ring collar is very sturdy and holds the bits well if you are using the correct ones. Most bits will have the correct neck cut into the shank so that they can be secured. Unfortunately, my bit set did not have the correct design so I had to buy new ones to work with this driver. My old set is still usable but they are not secured into the driver and pull right out. This is a well designed product and I wouldn't expect anything less from Makita, especially at this price point. It handles well, is quiet, and does the job. I honestly can't find anything to complain about with this product.

By far the quietest of all oil impulse, hydraulic impact drivers. Only downside is lack of power, it will still drive in quarter inch lag bolts it just takes a little longer, it's not designed for that, this impact is designed for smaller applications. Furniture assembly, maintenance, the only con is that this tool was designed in 2016, Makita should have updated the model, their new batteries have battery meters, this tool still has a battery meter on the tool itself which means it was produced before the new battery design. The different settings are very helpful, it will drive any 1" to 2" drywall screws into spruce 2x4s completely flush without caming out and it will stop itself before it drives too deep. It was not designed to drive lag bolts, if you want the quietest impact driver and do not require a lot of torque, this is the perfect solution. If you're looking for the quietest hydraulic impact with the most torque and do not mind bulk, I would suggest the rigid stealth Force, one of the only impact drivers that will compete with the Milwaukee fuel gen 3 but again it is very bulky.

I owned one of these when they first came out and loved it. But I got soft and gave it to my son. Even though I own 2 other Makita “hard” impact drivers, I missed this one for its finesse and quite running. NEVER been disappointed with a Makita tool. Still using Li-ion batteries from when they first came out. Can’t say that about red or yellow tools.

Makita has yet to let me down. I use my impact at work 90% of the day and I gotta say, this thing is great. Noise reduction tion,sensing when your screw is about to reach limit torq..... Ut also looks nice. Co workers can't stop asking to use it for a bit.
