Makita created a new class in cordless with 18V LXT Sub-Compact tools. Makita Sub-Compact gives users 12V handling with 18V run time and compatibility with the world's largest 18V lithium-ion cordless tool system. The 18V LXT Sub-Compact Brushless 3/8 in. Square Drive Impact Wrench is ideal for working in tight spaces and for overhead applications. The XWT12ZB has an efficient Makita BL Brushless Motor engineered for up to 50% longer run time, increased power and speed, and longer tool life. It has variable two-speed with 0-1,300/0-2,400 RPM and 0-2,000/0-3,600 IPM and up to 130 ft. lbs. of Max Torque. The compact size and lower weight mean reduced fatigue for operators, especially for overhead applications. For added convenience, the Reverse Rotation Auto-Stop Mode stops rotation and impact when the fastener is loosened adequately. Users also get a variable speed trigger, built-in L.E.D. lights, and a convenient 3/8 in. square drive for quick socket changes. It features Makita Extreme Protection Technology (XPT). XPT is a protective seal inside the tool and is engineered for improved operation in harsh conditions by channeling water and dust from key internal components.

the tool you didn't know you needed
Lets first start off by getting out the way the fact this is “sub-compact tool”. It’s not a beast compared to other more powerful tools. This one is meant to be more compact, rather than powerful. I have the sub compact drill and impact driver. Neither of them are super powerful but theyre enough for what i use them for. They’re compact and light and i LOVE that. That being said, i needed a more powerful impact for those random times i need to drive a thicker screw into a stud for mounting a tv to the wall for example. I saw this on sale, noticed it had more power than my impact driver, i figured the only times I’d need “more power” would likely be when driving a lug nut type screw. I took a chance and went with it. Decided to try it for the first time while mounting a tv onto a stud and wow! Yes this has way more power than the standard driver. It didn’t struggle at all. Drove the lug nut right in. I wish i knew exactly how thick it was. I’m sure you can imagine. Very impressed. Very light. Only a centimeter longer than my driver which is crazy considering how much better it performed. I’m nothing close to a pro, very much a DIYer. I doubt i’ll ever use this to tighten lug nuts on a wheel, but who knows, I’m confident itll handle it

I returned two of these. The first impact purchased (18-Volt LXT Lithium-Ion Sub-Compact Brushless Cordless 3/8 in. Sq. Drive Impact) because it had an oscillating noise at very slow speed. It may have been perfectly durable but I'd rather hear a smooth motor bearing type noise. I suspected a flaw. The second one I received broke on 12mm bolt head (threaded shaft dimensions is unknown). The first project I used this on was pulling the EV battery from my Prius. On about the 8th bolt the hammer sound quit and the reverse would not unscrew the bolt. I do love the sub-compact drill & it's ergonomics of a small handle and because my Milwaukee is a heavy beast. Unfortunately, I may have to switch this pair of Makita's for both for the similar Milwaukee system.

This little Makita replaced a Snap-On impact I've had it only a short time but so far I really like it. It's a lot smaller than the snap-on and seems to have the same amount of power
