Does the grunt work
6 Month review: The utility company I work for purchased 12 of these Impact Drivers for line service work to install 4" lag-screw anchors in building wood framing members (to hang electric service wires from utility poles). These Impact Drivers are light, powerful, balanced and ergonomic. We use an adapter and special socket in the chuck to drive the lag-screw anchors into new and old wood without pilot holes - just insert the anchor in the socket, hold the tool against the siding and squeeze the trigger. Takes 30 seconds at most and you can feather the trigger to stop the lag-screw anchor when it's in far enough. Ideal for one=handed use while belted in on top of an extension ladder.
The worst part about hanging service wires used to be starting a pilot hole with an awl and then turning the lag-screw anchor in by hand with a screwdriver as a lever in the anchor opening (awkward and tiring).
We tried using Driver-Drills for a while to install the anchors, but guys were overheating the tool for grunt work like this.
These impact Drivers take the extreme use and the batteries hold up. I keep a close watch on mine to make sure it doesn't disappear. Would not even consider another brand. Do the work every day and then you'll appreciate Makita.

This drill has excellent torque, incredibly long lasting battery life, and is an ergonomic carrying tool. I have used it day in and day out for several weeks since I’ve purchased it as a commercial carpenter apprentice, and I will continue to use Makita products because of how impressed I am with this drill. From putting steel screws into galvanized posts, to tightening anchor bolts, to small precise framing screws this drill is the one stop shop for all your building needs.

The makita 18v XLT has performed well have have only had to charge once since receiving almost 2 weeks ago. Getting some good use inside a dealership setting working on cars professionally. Gets into tight spots nicely, trigger is smooth and variable but be ready for power when fully depressed, Forward/reverse switch is nicely positioned as well. Battery is on the bigger side but It seems to just keep on going so it's something I will overlook. Great product at a great price. Bought while on sale.

I’m quite impressed with its performance. This Makita impact driver is powerful and cost effective for a 3.0 Ah battery and holds longer battery life. Bit heavy compared to other brands but worth for its performance. Only drawback charger is not as portable as I thought.
