Questions & Answers

Does it come with bits

Asked by Mj November 23, 2018
10
Answers

No.

Does this have a hammer setting?

Asked by Rick November 18, 2018
5
Answers

It's more of a clutch drive setting not an impact driver. Settings range from 2 to 18 on the strength of drive needed. Ex : I use a setting of 2-3 for screwing locksets on doors, or 16-18 for 3 inch wood or deck screws. It will drive almost any type screw except Tap-Con concrete screws. Best to use a quality Impact screw gun with nut driver attachment

How long will it hold a charge

Asked by Groot July 3, 2020
3
Answers

Thank you for your question. Run time is based on many factors, but the efficient BL™ Brushless Motor is electronically controlled to optimize battery energy use for up to 50% longer run time per charge.

What's the difference (other than in RPM) between the XFD061 and the XFD12Z?

Asked by Xing December 10, 2019
3
Answers

In addition -- the XPH12Z, which has the same motor (pos. 6 and 7 in the parts list), is rated for 1.5" wood capacity. How is it that its drill-driver equivalent can manage wood bits of 0.5" lower diameter?

Will this accept a 6 AH battery?

Asked by BruMan December 29, 2020
3
Answers

I believe it does. However, even the 5 AH is somewhat heavy and I would opt for 2 lower AH batteries, keeping one on the charger and one on the drill. Since you enquire about this large battery, I assume you do a lot of work with drills. Makita makes a 1/2" impact driver, which you might be interested in. This would fit all your 1/2" square drive sockets, etc. It is not cheap, but you (usually) get what you pay for.

Does this model also work with the compact 1.5 amp hour batteries?

Asked by Tim September 4, 2020
3
Answers

Thank you for your question. The XFD131 18V LXT® Lithium‑Ion Brushless Cordless 1/2" Driver‑Drill Kit (3.0Ah) is compatible with the entire line of 18 Volt LXT Makita batteries including the BL1815 18V Compact Lithium‑Ion Battery.

Thank you for your question. The XFD061 18V LXT® Lithium-Ion Compact Brushless Cordless 1/2" Driver-Drill Kit (3.0Ah) should be capable of completing this job.

Thank you for your question, Yes, the Makita 18-Volt LXT Lithium-Ion Brushless Cordless 1/2 in. Driver-Drill Kit, 3.0Ah will accept the 5 Ah battery.

Hard to argue with!
I have to be honest... I love this drill. It's perfect for my general carpentry needs. Pocket holes, furniture assembly, you name it. The clutch is smooth and precise. The chuck locks so you don't need to grip it and hit the trigger to tighten the bit, you just have to grab it and twist. Having two speeds is plenty for me. When I need that high torque, or when speed is key, I'm set! Hard to say no to this price point, especially when it's on special at $99. Don't buy into the hype that you always need the more expensive option. It's brushless, comes with a charger, and a 3aH battery, what else do you need? She pairs beautifully with the impact driver, and together, create an unbeatable duo for the majority of professional applications. Get on this platform! This is the perfect starting point!

The Makita XFD131 is great entry-level Brushless drill kit with the high-quality and durability of the Makita brand. Unless you study the entire line of drills and analyze the specs, you may not realize that this kit is a better value than most. It's lightweight, compact size, durable high-capacity Li-ion battery, and ergonomic design make this an excellent kit. However, there are a few things you need to know about; otherwise, you might be disappointed. The drill feels great in your hand. It has a perfect balance, fits into tight spaces, and it's not too heavy, You'll see this tool promoted heavily on Amazon and at Home Depot, and it's perpetually "On Sale" in many stores, That's because it's designed to draw in new customers by meeting the all-important $100.00 price point while still providing exceptional performance. To achieve the price, the XFD131 kit uses a lower-rated motor (but still high quality brushless), includes a storage bag instead of a hard case, and comes with a slow charger. Other more expensive units will have more frills, such as multiple LED lights and features such a hammer capability. Nevertheless, this tool has all the right standard features, and the motor is coupled to a 2-speed transmission that delivers 440 in.lbs of torque, which should be more than enough for most applications. Considering the value of the kit, another way to think about it is like this: the kit comes with a high-quality $50.00 LXT 3ah battery (compatible across the entire line of tools), a $25.00 charger, and a $10.00 tool bag. So, for only $14 more, you're also getting the highly reliable ($70) XFD13 2-speed drill with brushless motor, which makes this kit quite a good value. If you think you'll need more power or if you desire the fast charger, then check out other kits such as the XFD12 series, priced $50-$90 higher (depending on battery size). Otherwise, grab this kit and enjoy the high quality and durability of Makita at a value price.

DO NOT BE FOOLED This XFD131 kit (internet # 305 926 995) is a "promotional" grade kit. This looks similar to XFD061 (internet # 301 444 915), but has over 20% less torque. This tool might be acceptable for the occasional home user, but serious users should make a side by side comparison. Amongst other differences, notice the different chucks. The charger supplied in this kit is a basic charger that slow charges (compared to "RC" chargers) supplied in the better quality kits. Note : At $99 I kept this kit. It comes with a BL1830B battery. The kit is almost as cheap as a bare battery

Great drill
I bought this drill for my electrician’s tool bag. Its compact and light weight. It fits perfectly fine. The torque is perfect for fast screwing and small hole drilling. I love the belt clip! I have other drills for heavier duty and this Makita is the best deal for the price. The perfect drill for light duty fast screwing. I like the brushless design never had one. I also love the battery life indicator

I purchased the drill and drill driver set. Although I haven't put it to a full test as of yet, I love what I've see so far. I did try the driver on my suv's lugnuts and it did whip them off and on without any problems. Its a powerful little beast. The one negative is that the chargers that came with the set were not the fast charger so it takes about 50-60 minutes to full charge a dead batter. I'll update this review once I've had the set for awhile to see how it holds up
