Makita 4-Speed Impact Driver Kit, 18V LXT

Makita has a legacy of innovation in the cordless impact driver category, and the 18V LXT® Brushless 4-Speed Impact Driver (XDT16T) sets new standards. The XDT16T offers users four speeds, as well as Makita’s exclusive Quick-Shift Mode™ for increased fastening control. Quick-Shift Mode™ uses the brushless motor’s electronic controls to find the best balance of speed and torque for each application for more efficient fastening. Another precision setting is Tightening Mode (T-mode), which downshifts and reduces rotation and impact speed prior to driving the screw into place, and is engineered to minimize screw thread stripping, screw breakage and damage to work. The XDT16T delivers industry-leading performance in a compact and ergonomic design.

Added features include the one-touch 4-speed power selector button under the chuck, which enables one-handed speed changes, and reverse rotation auto-stop mode which stops rotation and impact when the fastener is loosened adequately to help prevent over-loosening and dropped fasteners.

INNOVATION : Assist Mode and two Tightening Mode features help eliminate "screw cam-out" and "cross threading"
PRECISION : Reverse rotation auto-stop mode stops rotation and impact when fastener is loosened adequately
POWER : BL™ Brushless Motor delivers 3,600 Max RPM and 1,600 in.lbs. of Max Torque
DESIGN : Compact and ergonomic design at only 4-9/16" long; weighs only 3.4 lbs. with battery
INCLUDES : (2) 18V LXT® Lithium-Ioin 5.0Ah batteries, rapid charger and tool bag
