The 18-Volt LXT Lithium-Ion Cordless Drywall Screwdriver (model XSF03Z, tool only, batteries and charger sold separately) breaks new ground for drywall contractors. It's powered by a Makita brushless motor for longer run time, increased power and speed and longer tool life. With the exclusive Push Drive Technology, the 18-Volt Drywall Screwdriver can be set on lock-on mode so the motor starts only when the fastener is engaged. This gives contractors a quieter work environment and also saves on battery power. It's built for added durability with Extreme Protection Technology (XPT), which is engineered for improved dust and water resistance for operation in harsh job site conditions. It is ideal for hanging sheetrock, metal framing, installing subfloors, backer board and decking applications. It's part of Makita's expanding 18-Volt Lithium-Ion series, the world's largest cordless tool line-up powered by 18-Volt Lithium-Ion slide-style battery. Makita 18-Volt Lithium-Ion batteries have the fastest charge times in their categories, so they spend more time working and less time sitting on the charger.

I purchased the makita xag04z and the 5” wheel guard came with a plastic outside guard cover to the metal guard “ what’s the purpose of the plastic ?

Answer

Thank you for your question. The (XAG04Z) 18V Brushless Cordless 4‑1/2” / 5" Cut‑Off/Angle Grinder, comes with a 5" Clip‑On Cut‑Off Wheel Guard Cover that allows grinding guard to be converted for use in cutting applications.

How does this compare to corded version?

Answers

A lot more handy. You don't need to go find an extension cord. Also if you're working on new construction the power might not be installed yet. I noticed that there are two models of this. One of them you have to push the "on" button constantly to keep it running. That will get tiring on the thumb. This model stays running when you turn it on.

Can this be used with the Makita 3Ah battery?

Good Kit at a Decent Price Point
Bought this compact combo, which included an extra 2AH Battery. Was looking hard at the Big Red M tool line, but based on more than a few negative comments on the Red Hammer Drill I decided to go with Makita, Besides, I would rather have a Japanese tool over a China tool any day. Both the drill and the impact are very powerful. I like the advanced battery charger system with a chip in the battery and a CPU in the charger to enable a precision charge that optimizes battery charge and health. I like both tools fell solid and run great. I only have a couple of gripes after two days of steady use. First, the light on the tool is located just above the trigger and aims up at the bit. Only problem is that since the light is below the bit, you don’t actually get any light where you need it. The light is very bright, which tends to magnify the darkness of the shadow on top of the bit where you are looking trying to see the screw. The attached pic demonstrates the shadow effect, although this was taken in a well lit garage so the effect is not as pronounced in the photo, but I think you can get the idea. It’s tough to see anything of the top of the bit or screw in darker areas. Makita needs to adopt the three light setup around the face of the tool. Last gripe has to do with the fwd/rev selector switch, which is a standard type switch that you push from right to left for forward and vice versa for reverse. The switch is like butter, which normally would be a good thing. As long as you are running the drill in forward the switch is fine, but I find when I have the drill in reverse the selector switch rides right where my trigger finger wants to ride and with that buttery selector switch, there is a tendency to inadvertantly move the switch to the netural positon or to the forward position as you manipulate the tool. This is a great set for the money, but if I did a lot of work in dark areas the light would be a deal breaker for me, you just can’t see anything without addtional light on the work. If you work in well lit areas or only occasionally work in dark areas it will be fine. The selector switch is something that I will get used to in time. These two gripes warrant the 4 star rating.

Combine this multi tool with a 5Amp Battery and it will not let you down! HIGHLY recommend and will absolutely buy again if mine ever breaks. I use this daily for work, cutting subfloor, drywall, and other miscellaneous things for work and I always know I can count on my multi-tool. Easy to use. Easy to understand. Has six different power modes set in the side- super easy to learn. I love it.

Purchased this xrj01z saw over the traditional xrj04x. Removed it from the box and installed a Diablo bimetal 6inch blade for cutting wood and nails. Started cutting through an old floor joist and the blade guide broke. Home Depot was gracious and allowed me to return it and upgrade to the xrj04x. The xrj01z, in my experience, is more of a light duty tool. This would be good for cutting PVC and other light application materials. I own several (6) makita tools and this is the only one I've ever had an issue with. The xrj04x is running like a champ on the demo. I have not lost faith in Makita, but this was not a good tool for moderate to heavy use applications YEMV.

Let me say that I have many Makita Products and not a single one ever let me down. This saw was the first Makita product I returned because the saw is way under powered. I bought the saw because i needed a saw without cable and small enough to get in tide spaces to cut nails on pallets. I put a 5 amp battery on the saw from my Makita circular saw and the battery was good but the saw even if I used a high quality blade never made it to the nails in the pallets. The saw also gets really hot to a point were I was not able to hold it anymore. If you cut some PVC pipe or copper pipes this saw will fit you but not if you try to take some wood apart. You will need a cable driven saw or the larger battery Makita Reciprocating saw.

Got these on clearance. Perfect size and run time. They are the same size as the 3.0Ah ones but with a longer run time. Note: They will not work with older Makita tools that don't have the star on the battery receiver or yellow receiver and don't support the safety features of the newer batteries. Check the notches. Will not work with the bigger notch.

terrible customer service and awful tool.
Purchased this sawzall with a brushless kit about a year and a half ago. Few days ago the sawzall blade holder just fell off while cutting some 1 by 1 wood. both set screws just snapped off. Not the quality I'd expect from Makita which I have been using for 15 years. Called customer service and they told.me without a receipt I'm just out of luck. I'll just switch to Milwaukee.
