Makita XGT 40V 4-Speed Impact Driver Kit

The 40V max XGT® 4-Speed Impact Driver (GDT01D) breaks new ground for the most demanding driving applications in wood, masonry and metal. It is powered by a Makita-built brushless motor that delivers 1,950 in.lbs. of Max Torque, outpowering other impact drivers in heavy-load applications. An ultra-smooth variable speed trigger provides optimum control and a one-touch 4-speed power selector button under the chuck allows users to adjust speed easily. Users get up to 50% faster speed with 4 speed settings (0-1,100/ 0-2,100/ 0-3,200/ 0-3,700 RPM & 0-1,100/ 0-2,600/ 0-3,600/ 0-4,400 IPM), when compared to Makita’s 18V LXT 4-Speed Impact Driver (XDT16).

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.

The 40V max XGT® 4-Speed Impact Driver (GDT01D) breaks new ground for the most demanding driving applications in wood, masonry and metal. It is powered by a Makita-built brushless motor that delivers 1,950 in.lbs. of Max Torque, outpowering other impact drivers in heavy-load applications. An ultra-smooth variable speed trigger provides optimum control and a one-touch 4-speed power selector button under the chuck allows users to adjust speed easily. Users get up to 50% faster speed with 4 speed settings (0-1,100/ 0-2,100/ 0-3,200/ 0-3,700 RPM & 0-1,100/ 0-2,600/ 0-3,600/ 0-4,400 IPM), when compared to Makita’s 18V LXT 4-Speed Impact Driver (XDT16).

The GDT01D offers 9 modes for a wide variety of applications, including two tightening modes, one assist mode, three forward and three reverse auto-stop modes. The two Tightening Modes (T-mode) provide faster tightening of self-drilling screws in thick or thin gauge metal, which helps prevent damage to the screw or workpiece. Assist Mode (A-mode) feature helps eliminate "screw cam-out" and "cross threading" by driving at low speed until tightening begins. Three forward and three reverse Auto-Stop Modes provide increased efficiency.

This impact driver is a workhorse tool engineered to outlast with Extreme Protection Technology (XPT™) to provide increased dust and water resistance in harsh jobsite conditions. Reinforced gear housing provides additional durability on the job site.
