Makita Drywall Screwdriver, 18V LXT

The 18V LXT® Lithium-Ion Cordless Drywall Screwdriver Kit (model XSF03T) breaks new ground for drywall contractors. It is ideal for hanging sheetrock, metal framing, installing subfloors, backer board, and decking applications.It’s powered by a Makita BL™ Brushless Motor for longer run time, increased power and speed, and longer tool life. With the exclusive Push Drive™ Technology, the 18V Drywall Screwdriver can be set on lock-on mode so the motor starts only when the fastener is engaged. This gives contractors a quieter work environment, and also saves on battery power. It’s built for added durability with Extreme Protection Technology (XPT™), which is engineered for improved dust and water resistance for operation in harsh job site conditions. The 18V LXT® 5.0 Ah battery provides 65% more run time per charge than the 3.0Ah battery (BL1830), yet it charges in only 45 minutes – the fastest charge-time in the category – for less downtime and increased productivity. For added convenience, the battery features an integrated L.E.D. battery charge level indicator.
