Makita XGT 40V ½” Driver-Drill Kit, 2.5Ah

Makita XGT 40V ½” Driver-Drill Kit, 2.5Ah

The Makita 40V max XGT® ½” Driver-Drill (GFD01D) breaks new ground for the most demanding drilling and driving applications in wood, masonry and metal. It’s powered by a Makita-built brushless motor that delivers 1,250 in.lbs. of Max Torque, outpowering other driver-drills in heavy-load applications. It offers up to 35% faster drilling speed, compared to Makita’s 18V LXT Cordless ½” Hammer Driver-Drill (XPH07), with two speed settings (0-650 and 0-2,600). An electronic digital clutch accurately targets desired torque range (41 settings in low speed, 21 settings in high speed). Active Feedback-sensing Technology (AFT®) turns the motor off if rotation of the accessory is suddenly forced to stop.

This kit comes with two 2.5Ah XGT 40V batteries. Using the XGT Rapid Charger, one battery can reach full charge in 28 minutes or less, while the other is in use.

XGT is a system of equipment, tools, batteries and chargers utilizing 40v max lithium-ion batteries. XGT is engineered to deliver high power to take on high-demand applications, allowing users to completely transition to a cordless job site. XGT is equipped with advanced brushless motor engineering, intelligent digital communication, and superior durability features to outpower, outsmart and outlast the rest.
