Makita LXDT01 impact driver

Makita is proud to announce the release of its new 18V LXT Lithium-Ion Cordless 3-Speed Brushless Motor Impact Driver, model LXDT01.

This powerful and versatile impact driver features Makita brushless motor technology, engineered to run more efficiently for up to 20% longer battery life per charge. The 3-speed power selection switch provides the user with precise fastening control for a wide range of applications, from fastening cabinet screws to driving lag bolts. The new LXDT01, the latest in a long line of innovation from Makita in the impacts category, has even more fastening power than the previous model, giving contractors unprecedented power, battery run time, ergonomics and versatility.


3-Speed Power Control and Brushless Motor Technology

The Makita-built brushless motor with 3-speed power selection offers soft, medium and hard impact power to cover a wide range of fastening tasks:

• Soft impact setting: 0-1,300 RPM, 0-1,300 IPM, and 220 in.lbs. of Max Torque for small fasteners such as hinge screws for woodworking.

• Medium impact setting: 0-2,000 RPM, 0-2,800 IPM, and 490 in.lbs. of Max Torque for medium sized fasteners such as drywall screws.

• Hard impact setting: 0-2,600 RPM, 0-3,400 IPM and 1,460 in. lbs. of Max Torque for large fasteners such as lag bolts.

Consistent with all of Makita’s impact products, the proprietary hammer and anvil impact mechanism in the LXDT01 is manufactured using the best raw materials with the highest quality steel and unique heat hardening process for maximum fastening and driving power.

Makita’s Brushless Motor Technology delivers increased motor efficiency to provide up to 20% longer battery life per charge. With the motor’s more efficient power, the LXDT01 has a more compact design at just 5-1/2” in length and only 3.3 lbs. with an 18V LXT Lithium-Ion battery.


Ergonomic and Ease-of-Use Features

The LXDT01 is engineered with ergonomic and ease-of-use features. The built-in L.E.D. light has an independent on/off switch to illuminate the work surface, when needed. In addition, a battery warning light and the built-in L.E.D. light both flash when it is time to recharge the battery. The LXDT01 has a “one-touch” 1/4” hex chuck for simple bit insertion and a tool hook for increased efficiency. The ergonomic shape fits like a glove with even pressure and easy control.


Makita 18V LXT Lithium-Ion Battery Technology

The new LXDT01 is powered by Makita’s 18V LXT Lithium-Ion battery and the ENERGY STAR qualified Makita Rapid Optimum Charger. Makita’s 18V Lithium-Ion battery delivers 3X more cycles, and the Rapid Optimum Charger will charge an 18V LXT Lithium-Ion battery in just 30 minutes for less downtime on the jobsite.


Engineered for a Wide Range of Applications

Due to their versatility, impact drivers are gaining broader acceptance for a wide range of fastening tasks. With its variable 3-speed power selection, brushless motor, and 1,460 in. lbs. of Max Torque, the LXDT01 is engineered for almost any fastening application, ranging from small cabinet screws to lag bolts and TEK screws. The LXDT01 is ideal for HVAC, mechanical, electrical, fencing/decking pro contractors, steel stud framers, woodworkers, finish carpenters, and general contractors seeking a best-in-class industrial quality 18V Lithium-Ion cordless impact driver.

Model LXDT01 is a kit that includes two 18V LXT Lithium-Ion batteries, a 30-minute Rapid Optimum Charger, tool belt clip, and a tool case. The LXDT01Z includes the tool only.
