Product Overview

The Makita 18-Volt LXT Lithium-ion Brushless Cordless High Torque 1/2 in. sq. Drive Impact Wrench (XWT08Z, tool-only) combines 740 ft. lbs. fastening torque and 1,180 ft. lbs. break-away torque with extended run time and speed control for unmatched fastening performance. It features an efficient Makita brushless motor for longer run time, increased power and speed and longer tool life. The electronic 3-speed power selection switch gives users more precise fastening control. It is ideal for a range of users, from iron and steel workers to pipe fitters, railroad and automotive mechanics, forming carpenters and more. 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. Star Protection is communication technology that allows the Star Protection-equipped tool and battery to exchange data in real time and monitor conditions during use to protect against overloading, over-discharging and overheating. For increased versatility, the tool can also be powered by Makita 18-Volt LXT and Compact Lithium-ion batteries with the star symbol on the battery indicating Star Protection inside.

does the a h have baring on torque

Asked by larry November 8, 2019
2
Answers

I do not think so. The amp hour rating on you battery pack is telling how long the battery will last. Higher the amp hour rating the longer it will run your tool. Lithium batteries will give you almost all their run time until they are almost drained. Never drain a battery totally as it can damage the battery. If you were to put in a 1.5 amp hour battery it would produce the same torque as a 3 amp hour battery. It just would not last as long.

is bl1820b compatible to this model

It should work. Makita's 18 volt is on the same platform. Does not matter the amp hour rating. 3, 5 , 1.5. All will work.

I would give it 5 stars, but it is NOT "made in Japan" as the picture and descriptions elsewhere indicate. Apparently now (5/31/2019) the tool says "assembled in USA" (not even made in USA which implies they took parts made in other countries (China?!?) and just assembled it in the US). Still, not a bad tool, and in fairness, I couldn't tell any quality difference between this one and a made in Japan one I bought locally at a tool store. Only two outside visible differences: 1. the Japan made label is not glossy while the assembled in USA label is very glossy (like the cheaper Makita stuff in the Home Depot store, boo) 2. the rubber collar on the US version is made from a slightly different mold and has a different part number. It is still probably TPE, but I can't remove it to see. See pic below. 3. slight difference in the casted head; seems on the Japan version they did a better job smoothing the seam. With some slight outside differences, I'd rather keep the Japan version as it's the one I've seen measured on Youtube, and I know it is the best 1/2" impact money can buy. I have no doubt the newer assembled in USA version will perform as well. Returning the tool though as it is a lot of money to not be made in Japan as was shown in the image. Sorry, but I want it to match my made in Japan XDT012. Don't care for the glossy label either.

The stongest battery powered tool I've ever used!!! There is no stopping this beast. It's so easy to use, even my 12 year old daughter was sinking 12" lag bolts into our barn posts last weekend. My expectations have been surpassed.

This impact has a lot of torque and works great. The only down side is the size and weight. It is a heavy impact and hopefully that means it will last. I do have concerns about the battery mounting block. The one I purchased seems to be loose and I dont see an easy way to tighten it.I have only used it a hand full of times so far.

Awesome tool. This thing ripped off rusted on lug nuts on my 1/2 ton truck. I tried several air impact wrenches before hand that couldn't do the job. This thing did it quick and was so much easier than setting up a air compressor. Just charge it and rip. I recommend the 5.0 Ah battery to go with it since it does take alot of juice.

Amazing tool, incredible how far products have come!
I used to have an electric impact wrench from another tool maker that worked but was always a pain to use as it would often require a minute or more of impact to remove a lug bolt. I got sick of waiting and sold it and bought an air compressor and air tool, which is how your local auto shop does things. While I still have it, I wanted to try a cordless option again and thought like past models it would be no match - and boy, was I happily proven wrong! It took less than a second of impact to spin lug bolts right off, making it as fast and perhaps faster than my air powered impact wrench! While I will still need to fire up the compressor to adjust air pressures, when I don’t need to or when I dont want to drag the hose around this will be my new favorite tool. I can’t recommend it highly enough, plus the LED is great for being able to see exactly what you are doing.
