Product Overview

  • Impact- 1420 in.lbs of torque/Hammer Drill- 1090 in.lbs of torque
  • Star Protection for longer tool and battery life
  • Has Extreme Protection Technology designed to increase durability
Makita is the innovation leader in brushless motor technology and the 18-Volt LXT Lithium-Ion Cordless 2-Piece Combo Kit (model XT257TB) has 2 BL Brushless Motor solutions that deliver longer run time, increased power and speed and longer tool life. The 18-Volt LXT 5.0Ah battery provides 65% more run time per charge than the 3.0Ah battery (BL1830), yet it charges in only 45 minutes the fastest charge-time in the category for less downtime and increased productivity. For added convenience, the batteries feature an integrated LED battery charge level indicator. The kit includes a BL Brushless Motor Hammer Driver-Drill with 1,090 in. lbs. of torque for the most demanding applications. The kit also includes a BL Brushless Motor Impact Driver with full 1,420 in. lbs. of maximum torque, yet weighs only 3.4 lbs. (with battery). The XT257TB is a total solution for most drilling, driving and fastening applications. It’s part of Makita’s expanding 18-Volt Lithium-Ion series, the world’s largest cordless tool line-up powered by an 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. For improved tool performance and extended battery life, Makita created star protection computer controls.

Questions & Answers

is this really a premiun kit?

after viewing this kits competition at home depots $150 off deal i must say im not certain makita made the right choice by selecting this plastic coated consumer rated impact. all other kits including the lesser ridgid include that companys premium impact. 3 speed. high torque rating etc. disappointed in makita for this one
Asked by: jimbo
Hey jimbo, You Bet the XPH07 Hammer Drill/Driver is top of the Makitas lineup with a full 1090 in/lb of torque! This kit also has the 5Ah batteries, a real plus for run time! This kit has the XDT08 Impact Driver. If you want top of the line impact driver I think the XDT12 is it. With 4 speeds and Assist Mode that senses how a screw is driven into materials. take a 3" wood screw for instance; It starts out slow, hammers hard to drive it in, then finishes it off gently so not to sink the head!! Other settings too!! Waaaay Cool! I could not find that combo anywhere, so I bought the XPH07M kit and the case has a space for an Impact Driver which I bought bare, and NOW I have the premium kit!! The "M" suffix means 4Ah batteries "T" or "TB" suffix means 5Ah batteries. I could have gotten it with 5Ah batteries but hey, it's a start to a battery platform with over 100 tools. Makita's 36 Volt tools use (2) 18 Volt batteries for the power instead of getting you hooked on another battery too! That's Smart!

Just bought this kit tonight. The chuck on the drill makes clicking noise.

When the jaws on the drill chuck are fully open then you close them with a bit in them the chuck makes a clicking noise while closing almost like something is catching in the chuck while closing. When you loosen the chuck the noise is not there but After fully opening the chuck the chuck make the noise again while closing. Is that normal operation of the chuck on that model drill or is the chuck defective.
Asked by: jerry153
The chuck has a ratcheting tightener that grips the bit. That's the noise you hear--It's just tightening. Be glad about that. I had a previous (0ther brand) drill that kept dropping bits into holes.

Batteries

Can I use all makita star symbol batteries with this system? Or only the 5.0 AMPH batteries that come with the set?
Asked by: David
The 18V 5.0Ah (BL1850B) battery and all Makita batteries that carry the star symbol are fully compatible with the Makita 18-Volt LXT Lithium-Ion Brushless Cordless Combo Kit (XT257TB). For more information on the benefits of Star Protection, go to makitatools.com and hit the “World’s Largest” link at the top of the page.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from excellent I have thoroughly enjoyed this set up. Very strong. Very efficient. Very effective. Extremely quick to recharge. I recommend this set to anyone who is working in a commercial setting. The batteries last me for upwards of a week or more of normal use and 3 days for heavy use. I have studied out different brands and also different models within Makita and this is the best. The only negatives are on the impact. The quick chuck is a manual chuck even to install the bit and the led light though nice and bright is only illuminated while the trigger is being pulled. Two small but irritating things and would suggest to Makita to revise those. The new 3 speed impacts are not even a quarter as powerful but has those features. It would be nice to have the combination.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Amazing drill/driver I have used them for about a month now and I am pleased with the combo. The batteries last through jobs and the quick charge is a huge plus. Like most the drill may feel heavy at first, but when you get used to the weight it does feel comfortable. The build quality of both the impact and drill are unmatched. Personally, I am a Makita fan over DeWalt, I am sure Milwaukee is great but what sold me on this set over the Milwaukee is the battery life/charge, the built-in fan of the charger and also the hard case. There are plenty of great tool reviews online if you're not convinced or if you want to actually see the BL drills in action and compared to other BL drills. Use them, make your own opinion.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Best purchase ever I do a lot of renovation work and needed a heavy duty drill. This was by far one of the best one I purchase, i have used millwakey,dewalt, ect , but the life time of battery on this one is great besides of not much noise at all. super strong drill that is for sure. very well made for Makita.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Power and control I've only owned one cordless impact drill and hammer drill set, and the previous was a Dewalt I'd had for 12 yrs. They were great so I looked at Dewalt again, but after lots of research and talking with friends about recent experiences, I decided to go with Makita. I'm VERY HAPPY I did. Powerful yet so much control. The clutch is so smooth on both devices, and I have not found a job yet that even made it break a sweat. Highly recommended! A+

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Pro grade. Real work horses. Got this to replace a Ridgid combo drill/driver. The Ridgid drill kept dropping bits into the hole and the batteries would need charging 2-3 times a day. I needed a pro tool. I remodel homes and install a lot of kitchens and baths. I have to have a dependable tool. This Makita driver/drill kit is the best I've used. The drill doesn't seize if I put some torque on a bit and the driver has a lot of guts to drive dozens of 3" screws without breaking a sweat. The 5.0 Ah (5 Amp hours) batteries are awesome. Heavier than most drills but literally last days on a charge. Wow. Someone is getting battery tech figured out. Great job Makita!
