Product Overview

Makita 18-Volt Lithium-ion is the world's largest cordless tool line-up powered by an 18-Volt Lithium-Ion slide-style battery. At the heart of Makita 18-Volt LXT Series is the efficient Rapid Optimum Charger. The Rapid Optimum Charger offers key advantages for Makita 18-Volt Lithium-Ion cordless tool users. The exclusive built-in fan cools the battery (sold separately) by forcing air through the battery's air vents during the charging process for faster charging. The charger communicates with the battery's built-in chip throughout the charging process to optimize battery life by actively controlling current, voltage and temperature. The result is category-leading battery charge times, which means the battery spends more time working and less time sitting on the charger (note: also charges 14.4-Volt Lithium-Ion batteries).

I am a 5', 97lb, 62 yr old woman. I bought this to cut down 5' tall pine trees taking over my field. They were too big in diameter for my loppers. In 45 minutes I cut down 28 of them. The best part was that I could cut them close enough to the ground that my lawnmower could go over the stumps without poking the tires or hitting the blades. I have also cut down many scrub trees with trunks @ 4" in diameter. I bought blades for pruning wood. And, I ran out of energy before the battery did. Love my Makita power tools.

    Exquisite saw
    This is the most impressive recipro saw I have ever had in my life. I had a few before. Super powerful, superbly made, incredibly solid saw. You can "feel" the quality. Honestly I am more than impressed with this magnificent tool. I absolutely recommend it.

      Couldn’t recommend the 5.0 Ah batteries more. Although they are heavier- suck it up, it builds muscle ;). I love that I can count on the quick charge time and how long each battery lasts. Depending what tool, I can go 2-4 hours on one battery using constantly. I now have three of them and watch for deals. I couldn’t be happier.

      After the $150 sticker shock for this battery subsided, I have been completely satisfied with its longevity while using it to drive deck screws. Lasted a solid 6 hours with continuous use and the charger had it ready to go again in roughly 30 minutes. Highly recommend!

      Excellent
      Amazing impact driver has delivered and performed to every task I have asked of it. However I realized why people love makita is that the tools are very well thought out, from the dual LED, ergonomic handle, battery indicator, speed of charge , ability to turn on light with out turning drill.

        A satisfy and fun adventure
        Last summer, I had a fun home project, to build a full-size deck in my back yard. During my research for style and technique to build this deck, Makita impact driver appeared in the research list, as a “must have tool for builders”. Firstly, I thought this is just another rebranded power tool, that the manufacture can trick people to buy for a higher price. However, after accomplished my building project with my Makita impact driver. This new tool’s performance changed my mind. The Makita impact driver was a surprisingly powerful tool, reliable and cost effective, however, its heavy weight and inconvenience to purchase was only two minor issues that I dislike about this product. My first impression of this impact driver was small and compact tool compare to my regular power drill. Consequently, its smaller size made me question its capability. After screwed a few 6 inches long screws into a solid wooden post, I had no doubt about its performance. It was like cutting through a block of butter with a hot knife. To match it powerful performance, Makita impact driver has a 3.0 Ah battery, this battery has twice the capacity compare to other brands. During my project, the battery provided roughly 8 hours power, but some other brands provide two smaller batteries to eliminate the waiting time to charge battery. This extra battery may be important for a contractor to avoid wasting time beside working. However, my project was not under time pressure that I could just plug in the battery after a few hours working in my back yard and have a cup of tea. Besides its powerful performance this impact driver is a reliable tool. Working outside, it was impossible to avoid dust or carefully operate the power tool like a delicate flower, but the Makita impact driver handled well in these conditions. It starts spinning every time that I pull the trigger. With those great features from above, the Makita impact driver still is a reasonably priced power tool. My Makita impact driver was under $150, it fits my limited home building budget. Additional to its reasonable price and the quality of work improvement, the money was well spent. To conclude, Makita impact driver is a powerful and reliable tool. Not only its reasonable price fits my home building budget, but also, its neat design enhanced my fun building experience. However, its heavy weight and inconvenience to access were minor problems to improve. This Makita impact driver has a simple task to put any size screws into any material. It will save the pain from force a screw into a log of wood or switch drill bit to predrill a hole to fit a large size screw. I will definitely give five stars to this product.

          I got this driver in a 5 piece kit and have been very impressed with the power and feel of the tool... It is probably one of the most comfortable grips I've had on a drill/impact and I have had several... Even though I gave it full 5 stars I do have one negative, I wish they would have at least given it a 3 speed shifter. I know you can buy the XDT14z and get a 3 speed and a couple job modes, but just saying with such a nice tool why not give the lower priced a little love, maybe even a 2 speed... This is just a minor gripe as I know the the Milwaukee valued at about the same price has a 3 speed....But with that said the smoothness, power and ergonomics of this tool make it a very good buy and would say probably the best overall for the price.....

            Great router. I have two other cordless routers,from different companies, so for me to get a third from a third brand meant I saw some must have features. 3rd time was definitely the charm. I mainly got this for one reason. Anyone ever use a router would know you will definitely need a mask on as it spits out dust out, the dust port was the main reason I got this. I am a righty and using the right going from left to right with the vac attached to the port was a little inconveinent. You would have to hold the router so the back is facing you, making the window to see your work piece useless. I simply put the vac on the left and this resolved that. The rack and pinion for the microadjustments is quick and easy. I knew exactly which way I was going each time. The router was not loud at all, to me. My sound meter showed 79 db, with the router operating on its highest setting on a piece of mdf
