The Makita 18-Volt LXT Lithium-Ion Brushless Cordless Quick-Shift Mode 3-Speed Impact Driver (model XDT14Z, tool only) is a best-in-class fastening solution for users who want more torque, longer run-time and precision fastening features. The XDT14Z delivers all of the above in a compact size with a superior power-to-weight ratio. The XDT14Z combines a full 1,550 in. lbs. of fastening torque with category-leading precision features. Quick-Shift Mode is an automatic electronic controller that downshifts and reduces rotation and impact speed prior to driving the screw into place. It is engineered to minimize screw thread stripping, screw breakage and damage to work. For faster tightening of self-drilling screws, use the Tightening Mode (T-mode) and avoid damage to the screw or work piece. These precision settings, combined with 3-speed power settings, give users more control for a wide range of fastening tasks from cabinet screws and deck screws to lag bolts and much more. It is only 4-5/8 in. long and ideal for work in tight spaces. 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. This bundle also comes with E-01672 Impact XPS 10 Piece 3/8 in. Drive 6-Point SAE Impact Socket Set w/Standard Socket Adapter and E-01666 Impact XPS 35 Piece Impact Bit Set.

They must change these sets over time. Here it is listed as either buying an 8 piece or 10 piece set. Somehow I have a 9 piece set. Looks almost the same though. The one difference is my ¼ adapter is a wobble fit instead of a standard straight. Otherwise they look to be the same sockets and the choice to the consumer on what quantity to buy. These are well made, thick sidewalls and won't round off edges. While they are marked with their size it's hard to see so I fill in the grooves with grease marker then wipe off the excess so the contrast makes the size easier to see. I also mark the case with the size and the H is the one I use often on my lawnmower to sharpen/change the blades. Just little things to make it quicker to use.

Love how easy it is to change bits

I have medium to large hands and the Makitas work well. The HD Brand is way too heavy and big for me. Makitas always fit best and are light and powerful. Very enough for what I need. My average drill/impact lasts me at least 8 years. We don't use it TOO often as we only manage rentals but don't do all the construction as a full time contractor would. Our contractor uses Makita as well and swears by them. The batteries last longer than most brands in my experience.

This Makita Impact XPS bit set its made with great quality steel. I can tell that will last a long time due to its durability. This Impact bit set is great for any project, professional, or at home. Great for building decks or framing. The set has a lot of bits necessary for home or professional use. I highly recommend this Makita Impact bit set for any professional or home owner.
Makita IMPACT XPS Impact Bit Set (35-Piece)
The ImpactXPS Power Bits are designed exclusively for use with high-torque impact drivers. In addition, all the bits can be used with any cordless or corded drill using any standard 1/4" hex shaft chuck.
ImpactXPS Power Bits are ideal for the most demanding jobs including deck building, framing, installing plywood subfloor, and more. The Impact XPS™ bits are designed to handle the high-torque demands of professional users in all trades, and are said to be lasting up to 90x longer than standard bits.
The torsion section of the bit flexes under load to take pressure off of the bit tip for increased durability. Makita IMPACT XPS are precision machined to provide a superior full contact fit for improved holding power and longer life.
The sturdy plastic 'slide locking' storage case comes with interior tool rows that you can flip to pull out the bit.
Makita IMPACT XPS Impact (35-Piece) bit set is recommended to both contractors and do-it-yourselfers. This is a really high quality bit set at a fair price.
*NOTED: the 1/4" hex shaft works with any popular impact drivers, cordless and corded drills, and are not exclusively made for Makita.

I love these bits, it is made of high quality steel , the kit has a nice selection , the case is very sturdy, these bits can handle extreme power of high-torque impact drivers, they also last longer than standard impact bits, I love how easy it is taking out the bits and putting the bits back in.

Makita IMPACT XPS Impact Bit Set (35-Piece) is an excellent set for a screw impact drill/driver. It has a very nice case to keep the various commonly used bits handy and secure when the case lid is opened. They fit well in the screw heads and seem to be very exact, durable and hard. The main holder bit has a powerful magnet to hold you fastener in place and stays in place while tightening with one hand. It would have been nice if the holder box had clip to attach it to your belt, similar to what a tape measure has. The case does have some slots on the top you could run some string through to hang on your belt for ladder work.

This set pretty much covers it all. I have several sets from different manufacturers but I really like this one. The case is well made and easy to open. One of the things I really like is you don't have to fight the tools out of the case. The tools themselves are well made and of course work with most standard tools that i have tried them with. I will be investing in more of these tools.

Hallelujah! Finally an impact bit set that comes with multiples, upon multiples, of the most commonly used sizes. And torx bits to boot? Oh yeah. My days of wasting money on cheap sets just to get a couple of useful pieces are over. I have used several pieces on a couple of projects and I am sold. The phillips heads did not round off, even when maxing out the torque on my impact. No stripped screws or trashed bits. Love that they are all magnetic as well, makes life SO much easier. I forsee this lasting me a long time and couldn't be happier. 10/10- definitely recommend!

Love this bit set. One great feature of the case is that each rack of bits rotates up so that getting the desired bit out of the rack (and back in) is very easy (see pic below). I've had too many cases where it was such a royal pain to get the bits in and out of the racks in the case, you would just put them loose in the case. I like the bit holder. Solid and secure fit for he bits. Magnet is nice and strong. I have too many bit holders with the collar to tighten down the "chuck" to hold the bit in. That made switching out the bits difficult and you ended up not tightening it , and the bit invariably fell out. This Makita bit holder solves that problem. Their selling point for this bit set seems to be the longevity of the bits. I've only had the set for a week or two, so I'll report back in after a few months.,
